Buenos Aires
Restaurants & Bars
A legendary bar.

A century ago the Bar Británico was called the Cosechera, home to a grocery store frequented by the English, former combatants in the First World War. Hence, when it became a bar in the 1960's, it was renamed the Bar Británico (the Britishers' Bar).

Just opposite the Lezama Park, the bar quickly became one of the most popular bars in the San Telmo district. The great writers, artists and musicians of the day have all sampled and added to the legendary ambiance in this bar.

However, Bar Británico was threatened with closure in 2006, but strong protests from the people of Buenos Aires succeeded in reopening the bar, which remains an undoubted cornerstone of the city's landscape and the very beating heart of the San Telmo district.
