In a traditional corner of Buenos Aires, with a rich colonial past, Bar Plaza Dorrego boasts of a melting pot clientele of visitors from all over the world. It was the first bar in Buenos Aires, established in 1881. In its hey days the bar decoration was considered sumptuous. Today, this busy spot has lost some of its former splendor but it still manages to keep the charm and simplicity of the old days. Pictures of celebrities such as Borges and Gardel, who used to stop by, are hanging on its walls. Like in most bars in Buenos Aires, you have a menu with a good selection of alcoholic beverages and coffees. The beer comes with a side of roasted peanuts and the coffee with shortbread cookies. Before leaving, you may carve your name for posterity in one of the wooden panels.
