Bar El Estaño 1880

Address: Aristóbulo del Valle 1100 – La Boca

A couple of Spanish immigrants opened it in 1939 , receiving the current name in 1976, when their son took charge. It recalls the building’s age on the one side, and the 3,5m tin counter, which is said to be unique in Buenos Aires in such size.
The decoration in highly original, with a carved wooden coating on the walls and a giant mural standing out together with the shelves in the part where the store used to be. There are also antique objects such as the fridges or a German cold cuts slicer, which are preserved in the best shape possible through restoration.
For these features, it has been the stage for many films.
It organizes the literary “mate cocido” for the children that attend school in the surroundings, so that they learn the true story and escape the visual invasion of today’s consumption trend.
This mission makes it a refuge for artists and bohemians of La Boca and of other places where there is no place like this one.
