Puerta Roja

Address: Chacabuco 733 – San Telmo

The Puerta Roja is one of those unpretentious, non-flamboyant places. It is a simple, decent proposal, without many decorative efforts, which invites visitors to knock on its door to offer them its best. Walking up the stairs, you can find the bar, where you may order the drinks shown on the blackboard at really convenient prices. The bar has low tables with barstools and traditional tables where dinner dishes are served, apart from the bar area. A pool table and varied music complete the proposal. It is one of the favorite options of foreign tourists, though porteños frequently visit the bar as well. The Puerta Roja is open every day until 6 am and serves meals until 2 am.

Gibraltar

Address: Perú 895 – San Telmo

It is an English-style bar, which, on a small sign, emphatically makes it clear that it is not Irish. It is frequently visited by tourists and office employees during the now typical “after office”. The level and diversity of beers and whiskies are excellent, and prices are inexpensive in relation to quality. Gibraltar is also a very good alternative to have dinner. The menu is really varied: it offers international, Thai, Chinese, Mexican, and Indian food. Curry dishes stand out. Happy hour is from 6 pm to 9 pm. It has its own parking lot.
