Looking for a drink?

No need to look long or hard in Buenos Aires.

The city is brimming with options for a casual cocktail or

a full night of drinks.

As the evening gets going the music begins to blast and the seats fill up. You might suddenly find yourself sandwiched in between 30 locals fighting to get served at the bar. But stay put and you’ll enjoy yourself.

Beer lovers
Antares (Armenia 1447) is one of the only breweries in the city and they live up to challenge, producing at least 8 tasty beers of their own. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous try 10 small glasses of different beers for fewer than 30 pesos.

San Telmo is the home of Territorio Bar (Estados Unidos 500) where as well as sampling traditional food from Patagonia you can try—if you are brave enough—the ham flavored beer by the boutique brewery, Gülmen.

Wine tasting
Anuva Wines offers an affordable wine tasting and also ships to the US. However their location is top secret so head to their website for booking and location information.

If you’re looking for something to drink at home, your hotel, or even your hostel most grocery stores have a great selection of Argentine wines for wonderfully affordable prices. If it’s beer you’re after the most popular brands in Argentina are Brahma, Quilmes and Isenbek, and although slightly more expensive, Stella Artois and Heineken can be found too. (Tip: remember to keep your bottles to exchange—they are called “envase”—and save yourself a couple of pesos next time you re-stock.)

The Porteño says: “Quilmes vs. Brahma” (i.e. Argentine vs. Brazil), the story goes: approximately 15 years ago Quilmes was the most popular and best beer in Buenos Aires. However Brahma, the then rival Brazilian company, bought out Quilmes. After that the quality of Quilmes went down and Brahma started to get more popular. So now you have both brands owned by the same company with fake competition going on. And that competition is almost as intense as that between “Maradona vs. Pele”
