Buenos Aires Nightlife



12 de Octubre

12 de Octubre Review

Cobweb- and dust-covered bottles line the walls of this tiny venue, with maybe the most authentic tango music in town. It's known by all as "El Bar de Roberto" after its owner, who presides from behind the heavy wooden bar, dispatching ginebra (a local gin) to the old-timers and icy beer and cheap wine to the student crowd. When the singing gets going at 2 or 3 am it's usually so packed there's no room to breathe, but the guitar-and-voice duos manage gritty, emotional versions of tango classics all the same.
