Buenos Aires
Restaurants & Bars
The authentic soul of tango.

The Bar Sur was established in 1967 in a building dating from 1910. It was one of the first café theatres in Buenos Aires and hosted exhibitions, underground theatre performances, poetry readings and generally paid tribute to great artists.

The tango also found a platform amid this intense artistic activity with musicians, singers and dancers such as Mónica y Víctor Ayos, Alfredo y Laura Dinzel, Gabriel Reynal, Juancito Díaz, Hernán Oliva, Lucio De Mare, Alberto Podestá, Guillermito Fernández, Enrique Villegas, Puyeta Videla Dorna, Nelly Vásquez, Ramón Ayala and many more.

The cultural spirit of tango is still present in the bar where visitors can enjoy a tornado of tango into the small hours at the Bar Sur.
