3. X Bar

Bar, Pub Grub, Argentina

This Nueva Córdoba bar, facing onto the city’s scenic canal, is a popular watering hole among discerning locals. With over 800 labels on offer, including more than 200 whiskies, there’s sure to be a cocktail for everyone. Those with a sweet tooth will love the fruit daiquiris.

4. Petalos de Sol

Bar, Pub Grub

Along the canal you’ll find Pétalos de Sol, an ever-popular reggae/rock dive bar with walls covered in murals. Arrive before 2am (the cheap entrance fee also grants visitors a beer before the clock strikes 2) and make your way down to this funky subterranean bar for good tunes and cheap beer with a youthful and hip crowd. At 2, the bar becomes a dance club.

5. Apartamento


With carefully-curated touches like exposed beams and brick, industrial lighting, and graphic design-conscious menus, there’s no doubt that Apartamento is, well, cool. Go for a classic cocktail, like a mojito or a gin and tonic, or try a specialty such as the house Bloody Mary.
