A mythical bar, sommelier and owner Julián Diaz and his wife, designer Florencia Capella, opened 878 15 years ago, and it's long been the place for industry people to congregate and gather after the night shift. One of the first speakeasies in Argentina serving great cocktails as well as very good food. Julián also owns bar-café-restaurant Los Galgos in Congreso. A must.

The creation of celebrity somm Aldo Graziani, Aldo’s is a great combination of wine bar, restaurant and wine store. They have branches in Retiro and Palermo, but the one not to be missed is the one in San Telmo, as it boasts what is arguably Buenos Aires’ best jazz club, Bebop, in its basement.

This French bistro-style wine bar was a game changer when it opened in Buenos Aires in 2013, offering not only Argentine wines but international wines by the glass at a time when it was almost impossible to get any wines (even by the bottle) from beyond the border. It is still a great wine refuge in Palermo and is open all day offering more than 50 wines by the glass and more by the bottle. The trained sommeliers are great at pairing wine flights with your choice of cheeses and charcuterie, or you can stay for brunch, lunch or dinner.

Address: Cavia 2985, Buenos Aires
Located in one of Buenos Aires’ most beautifully refurbished mansions, enjoy lunch on Casa Cavia’s gorgeous outdoor patio or dinner in the impeccably designed dining room. The kitchen is led by executive chef Julieta Caruso, the former right-hand woman to Andoni Luis Aduriz at Mugaritz, who takes inspiration from music and literature for her menu. The extensive wine list was revised by British sommelier Sorrel Moseley-Williams while day-to-day service is led by front-of-house manager Lucás Angelillo. Enjoy a signature cocktail at the eye-catching bar, created by mixologist López Davalos and ex...

Address: Arroyo 872 Buenos Aires
An absolute must i Buenos Aires! Why? Because it has everything and is ranked three in the World’s 50 Best Bars 2019. Fantastic cocktails created by top bartender Tato Giovannoni, a great selection of natural wines and excellent bar food, with many dishes cooked over the parrilla (grill). A speakeasy-style bar, Florería is located in a stylish neighborhood in the basement of a florist. And, Giovannoni isn’t just a great bartender: he also produces vermouth and gin, and he is the co-owner of a vineyard in the Chubut province in Patagonia.

I love Gran Bar Danzon. This is where I stopped working as a bartender and started my training to become a sommelier over twenty years ago. It has a very comprehensive wine list, including many old vintages that are sometimes hard to find, and several different wines offered by the glass.

I loved this welcoming place when it was based out of a tiny location; these days it’s a few blocks down the street with the same friendly vibe but in a larger, more accommodating space. Part wine bar, part wine store, enjoy a glass of wine or a bottle over some small plates. It’s also one of the best wine bars for non-Argentine wines if you feel the need for a French, Italian or New Zealand vintage. At the helm is sommelier Mariana Torta who designed the concept, together with wine aficionado Roberto Costa.

Address: Gorriti 5132 Buenos Aires
Since opening its doors in 2013, this casual wine bar in Palermo is one of the best places to sit down for a wine tasting to explore Argentina’s wine regions one-on-one with a sommelier. Every afternoon Pain et Vin offers an hour-long tutored wine tasting, exploring Argentina’s wine history and grape varieties. You can also try the daily wine flight and cheese board, or order wines by the glass or bottle, in your own time.

Address: Avenida Alvear 1661 Buenos Aires
The Duhau Palace is today a Park Hyatt hotel. It was built almost a century ago, when Argentina was one of the richest countries on Earth. This beautiful place boasts a restaurant, a cocktail and cigar bar, a wine bar and Buenos Aires’ only serious cheese cellar. It is like a food & wine lover’s heaven...
Palacio Duhau is temporarily closed.

Address: Gurruchaga 1149, Buenos Aires
This was one of the first wine bars in Buenos Aires to import pour-yourself-wine machines and it is wall to wall with the shiny wine dispensers with over a hundred wines from around Argentina and a bit further afield. A low-lit, urban-industrial vibe makes it a good date night spot, and the menu includes main dishes as well as sharing plates from their cheese bar. The wine bar now has two locations, one in the bohemian Villa Crespo neighbourhood and another in the hip Palermo Hollywood neighbourhood, where you can also dine at the chef’s table.
