The Nightlife Scene
Nights out in Buenos Aires
usually extend well into morning. Start early (and pace yourself) at Doppelgänger, a San Telmo bar featuring more than 90 craft cocktails in a sultry, retro-style saloon. Reflective of the city’s 1930s glitz and glamour is Presidente Bar in Recoleta; order drinks served in ceramic obeliscos, miniature replicas of the Buenos Aires landmark obelisk along Avenia 9 de Julio. Boticario is the city’s newest bar, a Palermo Hollywood outpost serving herbaceous cocktails styled after the first apothecaries, which once doubled as undercover alcohol dens. Before calling it a night, swing by Florería Atlántico, where leading local mixologist, Tato Giovannoni, makes fragrant cocktails with his own Príncipe de los Apóstoles, a yerba mate-infused gin.
