LOS 36 BILLARES BUENOS AIRES
Buenos Aires is one of the world’s pre-eminent bar-hopping cities – there’s even a government body charged with conserving the “bares notables”. Los 36 Billares, which opened in 1894, is one of these. It’s staunchly traditional and still has billiard tables beneath original Tiffany lamps. Old-school waiters waft away any attempts at gentrification. For food, I go for a portion of fugazzeta (onion-topped pizza) or a meat empanada. Cynar is my favourite digestif, followed by a carajillo – espresso with rough local brandy.
