Buenos Aires’ Top Dive Bars

By Kevin Vaughn

Screen Shot 2014-05-07 at 11.16.11 AMThroughout Buenos Aires, there’s no shortage of dark and sketchy bars with questionable bathrooms, eccentrics, and barely-there service.  The problem with Porteño dives is that more often than not they’re either completely empty or exclusively populated by chain smoking grandpas and taxi drivers. It’s almost too divey to be salvaged. But that didn’t stop us from searching, because who doesn’t like a good dive bar? They’re cheap, trashy (in a good way) and basic decency makes room for the shameless Saturday night antics that make a weekend memorable.  Below, the Buenos Aires dives you should be frequenting.

Buenos Aires: Drinks Briefs (ES)

By Kevin Vaughn
Festival– Last Saturday the guys behind the wildly popular Palermo bar Soría opened their second bar, Festival, just a few blocks down. Co-owner Hernás Nicolina writes that Festival hosts inventive drinks on par with some of the city’s best cocktail bars without the exclusivity that comes with such a space. The “trailer” for Festival stars a slew of well-known Buenos Aires musicians and actors (Onda Vaga, Martin Piroyansky) which leads us to believe that this bar will be just as hip as it’s older sibling. Festival is located at Gorriti 5741.

DOGG– It’s no secret we are fans of the downtown Pancho spot DOGG and their homemade dogs, a variety of condiments and a consistent supply of imported hot sauces. This Friday night we can’t wait to pair our chili dog with a gin and tonic made by Floreria Atlantico’s very own Tato Giovanni who will be playing barman. Get your hot dog and cocktail combo this Friday from 7 pm to 9 pm. DOGG is located at San Martín 657.

(Best Of Year 1) The Top Burgers In Buenos Aires

By Olivia Amter

(Orginally published on 02.01.14)

Like everywhere else in the world, burger fever hit Buenos Aires hard. Beef is an obvious Argentinian staple, as is the ubiquitous patty that graces the handwritten menu at just about every mobile parilla. The new trend, however, strives for a more U.S. style burger with creative fixins’ and *the perfect bun*, not to mention a healthy dose of french fries. We’re totally on board (hence the whole week dedicated to the gorgeously grilled patty between two lovingly toasted buns) and got to work tasting some of Buenos Aires’ best new burger spots. After both good and not so good, great and amazing, we finally settled on our absolute favorite burgers.

Oh, and please forgive us if the photos induce any unseemly dribbling on your computer; it comes with the territory.

Camping – Camping is a German-style beer garden  that recently opened on the terrace of Buenos Aires Design mall off of  Plaza Francia. The small bar offers super affordable draft beer (AR $35) from local brewery 7 Colores and features simple camp-style food like corn on the cob that is simply served when it’s ready – listen for the bell. Camping is located at Av. Pueyrredon 2501. They are open Tuesday through Sunday from 12 pm to 12 am, and they warn us that they do close in the event of rain.

?DOGG – If you need an actual excuse to hit up the popular downtown hot dog spot DOGG, here you go: customers are already proving their loyalty by keeping up a constant supply of salsas and hot sauces. This week we spotted a brand new bottle of Louisiana Hot Sauce to go perfectly with your Chili Dog, proving that DOGG is a fresh breath of air in the Downtown fast food scene in a sea of milanesa sandwiches and limp panchos. DOGG is located in Centro on San Martín 657.

Vice Goes Inside Buenos Aires’ Feria De Mataderos (ES)

As Vice media’s new food-focused wing Munchies expands and makes food as edgy and sexy as only Vice could, they’ve ventured out into some of the less savory (pun intended) arenas and facets of the food world at large to get to the roots of food culture.  In their latest, writer Tommy Tannock goes into the far reaches of Buenos Aires for a day at the Feria de Matadores, the same place from which the beef that makes Buenos Aires tick emanates.  Read along as Tannock encounters jerry-curled crooners, choripan and handmade empanadas, gauchos, and an entire culture that couldn’t be less like Buenos Aires if it tried.  Somehow, though, it still seems like the coolest place ever.  That’s the Vice touch.

Como Munchies, la nueva ala de Vice media, amplia y hace la comida más sexy y provocotiva en la manera que solo Vice puede hacer, se han ido a los sectores y locales del mundo gastronómico menos queridos para llegar a los raíces de la cultura de comida.  En su última, escritor Tommy Tannock llega a la frontera de Buenos Aires para pasar un día en la Feria de Matadores, el mismo lugar de dónde Buenos Aires recibe su carne.  Lea mientras Tannock se encuentra con cantantes de pelo crespito, choripanes y empanadas caseras, gauchos, y una cultura entera que no pudiera ser más diferente que Buenos Aires, apenas se trata.  Sin embargo, todavía parece como el lugar más ‘cool’ del mundo.  Ese es el toque Vice.
