The 3 best speakeasies in the city of Buenos Aires

These spots recommended by Air France Magazine transport us to the secret world of clandestine Argentinean bars, where mixology and elegance adjoin the so called “Paris of South America”.


Nicky Harrisson Speakeasy

The multi-award winning speakeasy is a blend of elegance, vintage ambience, jazz and swing music, and excellent cocktails and food. Located somewhere in Buenos Aires ;), Harrison Speakeasy is a high-end clandestine bar, known as the best in Buenos Aires. According to Air France Magazine, expert mixologist Seba García recommends tasting the Tokyo cocktail. A combination of gin infused with hibiscus, sake, rosemary syrup, lemon and angostura bitters.

Okay, you’ve come this far, so you’ve earned the address.

Bar Presidente

Part of 50 Best Bars, Bar Presidente is a very fashionable place in Buenos Aires. Like Nicky Harrisson, President is also directed by Seba Garcia. The atmosphere of the site perfectly recreates the ancient speakeasy environment. Cocktail recommendation: Pompeian Julep. This cocktail is based on bourbon, fresh mint, cordial grapefruit and cedron, a plant from La Pampa.

Florería Atlántico

Another one in the 50 World’s Best Bars. Florería Atlántico registers a different atmosphere to that of Presidente Bar and Nicky Harrisson. Its decoration and style pay tribute to the immigrants who arrived in Argentina with the drinks of their countries, and also the liquors brought by the criollos. The cocktail menu is led by one of the city’s best mixologists, Renato Giovannoni. It is worth mentioning that the bar celebrated its festival “Festival Atlántico” receiving renowned bartenders such as Joe Schofield, José Luis León, Nikos Bakoulis, among others.
