Bar O Bar

Address: Tres Sargentos 415 – Retiro

This pub was founded in 1969 by the artist Luis Felipe Noé, it is considered the first pub in the city. It never ceased to be a symbol of the avant-garde generation, and an emblem to the ’70s intellectuals, even though it was moved once from its original site at 874 Reconquista St. It was always famous, and the place chosen by writers, visual artists, musicians and philosophers of all times.
It offers a tempting menu, out of which the picada, black beer, and porteño dishes are recommended. The bar is remarkable for the big barrels full of peanuts in shell, permanently available to all guests; the shells are dropped, thus “carpeting” the floor, and giving the place a peculiar color that remains through time.
