Palermo is well known for being one of the city’s gastronomic hotspots that includes both restaurants and hip buzzing bars. Uptown bar is the newest to join the local scene, and it’s definitely the talk of the town with its impressive NY style metro station decor that includes part of a subway train itself.

Right next to La Mar, one of BA’s top ceviche spots, and just a few block away from Fierro Hotel, this is definitely the place to experience the renowned Buenos Aires nightlife. Since the bar has just opened in May and has caused quite a hub, we recommend booking in advance.  Arevalo 2030, Palermo. (0054 11) 2101-4897

Palermo es conocido por ser un polo gastronómico donde confluyen algunos de los mejores restaurantes y bares de la ciudad. Uptown es una de las últimas novedades de la zona y se destaca por su decoración única que imita una estación de subterráneo neoyorquina, con vagón de subte incluido.

El bar está ubicado al lado de la reconocida cebicheria La Mar, a tan solo unas cuadras de Fierro Hotel y es el lugar indicado para conocer la famosa noche porte;a. Dado que Uptown abrió sus puertas en mayo y que goza de mucha popularidad recomendamos reservar con anticipación. Arevalo 2030, Palermo. (0054 11) 2101-4897
