Bar Oviedo

Address: Av Lisandro de la Torre 2407 – Mataderos

This historical bar is located only a few steps away from the Mataderos livestock market and from the Popular Argentine Traditions and crafts Fair. It opens its doors during the whole week, being Saturday the busiest day since the Fair visitors stop by. During the rest of the week the local churchmen visit this bar wearing the typical footwear of the area known as “alpargatas corraleras”. In front of this blue and yellow bar you can see the year it was built: 1900. The remainders of a “palenque” (kind of fence for special purposes) still stand in its sidewalk and the wooden and metal tables mix the billiard ones. Its specialty are sandwiches in general, homemade empanadas and some barbeque as for a quick lunch.
