Buenos Aires Polo Club
For an Argentinian steakhouse, there’s more to celebrate than the versatility of the South American bovine. The acclaimed steak establishment Buenos Aires Polo Club, one of Black Sheep Restaurants’ most successful creations of 2016, is unique all on its own. Guests entering the polo- and equestrianthemed restaurant will surely notice the windowless interiors, equipped with emerald green walls and themed artwork— but it’s what’s behind the bar that really offers a reason to celebrate.
Taking the helm of the mixology team is Luca Sergi, demonstrating unparalleled expertise in pairing exotic liqueurs, aperitifs and flavourings in each of the restaurant’s signature cocktails. The resulting tipples are distinctive in flavours and distil a robust style of creative mixology through the diverse offerings.
At Buenos Aires Polo Club, the mixology team relies not on circus tricks, but on their familiarity with liquors, bitters and ingredients in reinventing classic cocktails such as the Rob Roy, made with a precise proportion of scotch, vermouth and angostura bitters; The Polo Club, a twist on the Pimm’s Cup by adding ginger and champagne; and the citrusy twist in the Singapore Sling, mixing gin, bitter Chinato and Bénédictine.
The establishment’s original creations are also fun-filled and vibrant in flavours, such as El Anana y El Poni, which blends rum with Fernet-Branca and pineapple, bringing forth sunny sweetness not unlike the tropical sun; and La Yegua Blanca, in which elderflower liqueur is mixed with ginger and zingy tequila for a unique sensation. With an extensive collection of tequilas, mescals, whiskies and vermouths, we couldn’t think of a more stylish hot spot in town, where you can enjoy the perfect tipple before sinking your teeth into some of the finest Argentinian steaks on offer.
