Whats up?

Why did WUBA suddenly decide to put a pub up on our Going Out page? Because Gibraltar is a classic Buenos Aires spot with loads of character, great food and beers, down to earth company, and a cool atmosphere. This place defines an international and modern English pub; it offers a variety of high quality ales and whiskeys as well as spicy East Asian curries and is located in one of the oldest neighborhoods in Buenos Aires: San Telmo. Gibraltar is an everyman’s destination. Although it is housed in an antique building with classic wood paneling and traditional British pub furniture that lends it a homey charm, there is not one ounce of snobbery to be found amongst the young, internationally mixed and local clientele who can be found laughing at the bar or playfully concentrated over at the pool table. The patio out back is a good place to enjoy your pint of stout while chatting with friends and scoping the scene. As the owner Alejandro says, this is just a pub. They serve cask ales, stouts, ciders and lagers to accompany their generous plates of spicy Thai and Indian curries as well as more traditional English and American plates (try the amazing fish and chips served with mustard sauce, pees, and lemon or the delicious meat-mushroom pie cooked in black ale and served with English sauce and fries). Alejandro believes that his menu reflects the evolution of pub food and that there is something for everyone. Gibraltar is known for its boisterously fun clients and its loud and crowded atmosphere, especially on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night. Come early if you want to get a seat! There is more of a pub feeling on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, when you can sit to watch soccer games on TV or just chill at the bar. They also have plans for a cigar lounge to open in the near future. There is a happy hour from 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM daily and food is served until 2:00 AM daily. On Saturdays and Sundays starting at 12:00 PM a full English breakfast is served. The staff is solid and friendly and so is the vibe, so swing by to get a new perspective on Buenos Aires social life.

Kaffir Thai, named for the aromatic kaffir lime leaf which is used in many Southeast-Asian dishes, whispers of a destination half a world away.  With blue jeweled elephants painted on the walls (trunks up, for good luck), carved Buddha masks, and brightly-colored silk pillows for sitting cross-legged on the floor, the ambiance sings not necessarily of Thailand alone, but a mixture of...

Take a stroll around Palermo on any weekend afternoon and you’ll probably come across a dozen places offering a “brunch” special. The end of the week ritual has become such a trend that it has spawned its own nomenclature: brunchear. Being raised on my grandfathers late Sunday breakfasts that always featured the same simple and delicious menu: crispy bacon, waffles and lots of maple...

Maybe it’s because you need a password to get in. Or perhaps its because of the plush velvet interior, the crystal chandeliers and the roaring 20s soundtrack wafting through the doors. Whatever it is, everybody is talking about Frank’s Bar.

Located on the edge of Palermo Hollywood, you wouldn’t know it was a bar-unless you knew it was Frank’s. A “Joe Mafia” guards an...

If there was one thing in common among local rock stars, you might begin by stating that all of them, past or present, sooner or later, gets their hair cut at Roho. 15 years ago, owner Oscar Fernandez created this mecca for musicians, designers and artists who were searching for an original look that distinguishes them from the rest. In other words, this man knows exactly how to make a...

It doesn’t take newly arrived visitors to Buenos Aires very long to realize just how stylish the city is. Evidence is everywhere, from the European-inspired architecture and inviting plazas to the trendy restaurants and bars that are popping up all over the city. As you might expect—and you’ll certainly notice—the Porteños’ fashion sense is as happening as are other aspects of the...
