Picture of Sorcha O'Higgins
Updated: 23 December 2017
If you thought 2017 was a good year for drinking in Buenos Aires, get ready for 2018. The Argentine capital has seen an explosion in places to get your drink on in recent years, and the coming 12 months look set to build on this welcome trend. Here are the best bars to be drinking in in 2018.

416 Snack Bar Buenos Aires

Bar, $$$
Save to wishlist

Hailing from the Great White North, this Canadian band of tastemakers knows a good drink when they see one. 416 Snack Bar is the hottest export this side of Toronto, and has brought not only top class wines and mouth-watering snacks to Palermo, but also a list of banging drinks and kickass cocktails. A favourite of the late-night and after work crowd, 416 Snack Bar is fast becoming one of the hottest bars in Palermo, and will no doubt only reach greater heights in the year to come.

Espacio Rô

Bar, $$$
Save to wishlist

Located in a former pulled pork eatery which only lasted a hot minute, Espacio Rô is the latest bar to revitalise Palermo Soho’s trendy nightlife scene. A favourite with hip Palermo hotties, Espacio Rô doles out the drinks while punters do the dancing, the DJ spinning banging tunes to the darkened dancefloor and stripped back patio area in the rear. Hit up Espacio Rô from Wednesdays to Saturdays in 2018.

Roy Bar resides in a bar which used to have a decidedly different identity. Roy Cabrera was a rustic hippy haunt with terrible drinks and no vibe, but Roy Bar has taken this same space and turned it on its head. This pint-sized corner haunt has propped the DJ up in a window so that the whole corner can become part of the party, and the bar serves pints of craft beer and some great gin and tonics. Sit at one of the high tables outside and mingle with Roy Bar’s friendly crowd.

Docks BA

Restaurant, European, $$$
Save to wishlist

This old-timey seafood bar and restaurant feels perfectly at home in 21st century Buenos Aires, although it is inspired by far-off locations from one hundred years ago. Channeling the swashbuckling trading times of early 20th century Europe, Docks’ maritime theme is classy not cheesy, and both the drinks and the food are typical of the fare that is putting Buenos Aires on the international gastronomic map.

Vico Wine Bar

Wine Seller, European, $$$

Vico really knocks it out of the park when it comes to new wine bars, and in a city that prides itself on its love of everything squeezed out of a grape, that is saying a lot. This swish new offering is making wine aficionados go weak at the knees, not only because it offers a huge selection of nearly 150 wines that can be sampled in one of three sizes, self served by specialised wine taps, but also because of the tasty tapas on the menu that keep people in their seats long after they thought they’d be home in bed. Great for a date.

Cerveceria Nacional

Craft Ale Bar, Argentina, $$$
Save to wishlist

Old faithful Cerveceria Nacional has opened up a new joint just a few blocks away from its inaugural location in Palermo Hollywood, a testament to its popularity and the quality of its beers and food. Singing from the same hymn sheet as its predecessor, Cerveceria’s second incarnation is a hole in the wall like the first, and promises the same great pints of craft beer and bottles of national brews, as well as old favourites like empanadas and pizza. Thank the beer gods, now there are two!

Not do be outdone by Palermo in the beer stakes, Colegiales is now home to Buenos Aires’ newest and best artisanal beer brewery. While many other bars that spring up on the scene don’t stick around for very long, Strange Brewing are sure to be a city staple thanks to their legit craft beers on tap and in bottles and cans.
