Temple Bar Retiro Buenos AiresAs South America’s most European city, Buenos Aires offers a never-ending offering of great food and drink, making it one of the most popular destination cities in the world.
However, after a full week of chowing parrilla and slinging Malbec and staying up until past dawn in the city’s boliches, it’s not a bad idea to just kick back and have a pint or two at one of the city’s best bars.
This is where The Temple Bar  comes in.  
This Irish pub is located in the heart of the city, in the Retiro neighborhood. For those who are looking for relief from the 3 a.m. club start, this is a good option. Happy hour lasts until 11 p.m.

The best days to go early are Tuesday and Thursday. On the weekends, Fridays are best after 9 p.m. The bar stays open from anywhere to 4 a.m.-5 a.m. most nights so if you get started and want to make the bar home for the night, you can pull up your stool for the long haul.
Beer and whiskey (of course) is the drink of choice here with Guinness starting at AR$12. The pints are served with one of the best nitro systems found in the latitudes to keep its flavor and temperature. A suggested accompaniment to your meal in a glass is a “picada” or appetizer of prosciutto, cheese and salami and black olives for AR$20 for two.

If you’d like to try dinner I suggest the grilled beef Carpaccio as an appetizer, followed by the lamb dish, which is less than AR$40.

The staff is friendly and helpful, making the bar feel just like home. Most who visit The Temple Bar return, if not for the Guinness, than for the fun but relaxing atmosphere.
