Restaurants and Bars in Palermo Hollywood

For cocktail connoisseurs, devout foodies and remote workers looking for cozy cafes, Fierro Hotel’s Palermo Hollywood location couldn’t be more ideal.

The hub of Buenos Aires’ booming, diverse, and inventive restaurant and bar scene, you may find that Palermo Hollywood offers almost too much choice. To make the decision a little easier, we’ll be sharing with you a few of our favorite spots in the barrio.

La Mar Cebichería

Part of Gastón Acurio’s stellar international envoy of Peruvian restaurants that take in Miami, Sao Paulo, and Lima, La Mar Cebichería is undoubtedly one of the best in Buenos Aires. Serving up ceviche with a bite, the lime and chili flavored tiger’s milk is some of the punchiest you’ll taste outside of Peru. Accompanied by piscos with a definite kick, any of their causas rellenas are worth a try too.

Ph: SaltShaker

Aldo’s

With a couple of bases across the city, Aldo’s is a hot choice for oenophiles looking for a lengthy wine list along with a sophisticated bistro style food menu. With impressive floor to ceiling shelves of wine, there’s plenty of bottles to choose from. However, with friendly staff who are more than happy to make suggestions, you’ll find your ideal wine match in no time. As an added bonus, if you have any leftover wine after the meal, they are happy to wrap it and send it home with you.

The Argentine Experience

If you’re looking to meet other travelers, learn about the country’s distinct cuisine and rituals, head to The Argentine Experience for a dinner party style evening. Offering guests a three-course wine paired menu, diners sample modern recreations of meaty cuisine (vegetarians are well looked after too) as well as a diverse selection of regional wine. Interactive too, guests make empanadas and can opt for the additional cocktail hour and learn how to shake up a few drinks.

tegui

Ph: Minuto Uno

Tegui

Covered in street art at the front, you’d be forgiven for not giving more than a passing glance at the front of Tegui. Upon entering the discreet door though, diners are greeted with a sleek and elongated dining hall. Argentine chef Germán Martitegui serves up refined Mediterranean fare while balancing his other job cohosting Argentine MasterChef. Highlights include the grilled oysters served with strawberries and seaweed.

El Perón Perón

Restaurant El Perón Perón is one of those places that has to be seen to be believed. Paying homage to the divisive Perón leadership, the place feels more like a shrine than a restaurant. Stuffed full of memorabilia, photographs, and notes of gratitude, you’ll certainly feel the level of support and popularity the Peróns held. A popular meeting point for supporters of peronismo, you may even hear the regimental march halfway through the evening. Serving classic Argentine food, drinks are strong and pack a punch.

uptown

Ph: Drinks & Co

Uptown

One of the most talked about bars to open in Buenos Aires in the past few years, bypassing the picky bouncers and gaining access to Uptown is a pretty coveted feat. Based on the gritty New York subway, visitors enter via a metro station and train car before heading  into the subterranean cavernous bar. Well attended by a team of highly skilled bartenders, drink making comes with an almost theatrical approach. Often hosting invited DJs, Uptown is the place to start your night.

franks-bar

Ph: Panachic 

Frank’s

Once a secret speakeasy, Frank’s has climbed its way up onto rankings of the World’s best bars. Now, practically on everyone’s radar, it’s definitely not unknown anymore, but it’s still an experience not to be missed. With password only access, a riddle or a clue is posted on their Facebook. Only granted entrance with the correct answer, visitors have to then speak the password through a red telephone. If you make it to this stage, a 1920s themed interior and some of Buenos Aires’ most refined cocktails await.

vico

Ph: SalPimenta

Vico Wine Bar

A wine lover’s dream, the second location of Vico is a one-stop shop for those looking to taste a range of lesser-known boutique Argentine wines. The wine bar which is one of the chicest around, houses over 170 different variations in electronic temperature-controlled cabinets.  Slightly futuristic in nature, guests are given a glass upon arrival as well as a charged card.  Visitors are then free to wander at their own pace and select what they want to try from each cabinet, using the card to pay for each glass. Choosing between a sample or a generous glass full, it’s a great way of trying a huge selection of wines.

Spring is Here! New Menu at UCO Restaurant Arrives

As Buenos Aires bursts into shades of purple and pink, we’re quickly reminded why Spring is by far our favourite season at Fierro Hotel. Sunny afternoons and balmy evenings mean it’s the perfect season to be outdoors in Buenos Aires enjoying yourself – preferably with a cocktail or wine glass in hand. 

At UCO, Fierro Hotel’s in-house restaurant, we’ve created a brand new Spring menu to get you in the mood for Buenos Aires’ most picturesque season.

Fierro-Hotel-Patio

To be enjoyed inside or in the green surroundings of our newly refurbished garden patio, if you arrive here between 5:30 PM and 7:30 PM, you’ll have the bonus of being in time for our new happy hour. With a hugely extensive wine menu covering all regions of Argentina (not just your average Malbec) and a few of our latest cocktail concoctions, there’s likely a tipple for every taste.

We like to make sure our menus are always seasonal and incorporate locally produced food, with this in mind, our head chef, Francisco García, has been busy at work coming up with plenty of new culinary creations ready for you to sample. Highlights include our new spicy Peruvian style rice, made up of yellow hot pepper, coriander, lemon, white fish and prawns, it’ll certainly pack a punch for lovers of spice.

t-bone-fierro-uco

With a few new editions to our mains menu, perfect for sharing among friends is our T-Bone beef, served with potatoes, and roasted vegetables, weighing in at one kilo it’s an impressive dish to behold!

For self-confessed red meat lovers, there’s also our Patagonian lamb shoulder to try – cooked for 18 hours and served with baked humita, seasonal vegetables and a flavourful jus, the slow cooking time makes the meat irresistibly succulent.

patagonian-lamb-humita-fierro-uco.jpg

If you’re looking for something a little more vegetarian-friendly why not try our latest pasta creation. Made up of burrata cheese, smoked aubergine, roasted tomato, pistachio, and a sprinkling of black olive dust, the filling comes wrapped in a tortellini pasta shell – believe us when we say you’ll be back for more!

uco-restaurant-fierro-hotel-tortellini

Closing the three-course meal with a bang is our decadent dessert, the Alfa Centauri choco-galaxy. Consisting of hazelnut ice cream, pistachio fudge, and an eclair served with a berry and Cinzano granite, it’s truly out of this world.

For those who fancy something a little lighter, but nevertheless packed full of flavour, give our take on a Galub Jamun a try.  Made up of an Indian style sponge, homemade greek yoghurt, a confit of pear and spiced tea ice cream, the aromatic dessert is not to be missed.

Don’t forget to take a look inside our next door wineshop and tasting space Cava UCO. With plenty of different labels to choose from, feel free to pop in for a tasting or perhaps to purchase what you most enjoyed drinking with your dinner. All guests who stay with us in the adjacent Fierro Hotel will receive a complimentary tasting.

Año Nuevo en Buenos Aires 2017-18

fuego artificial

PH: Henar Lanchas

Con Papá Noel ya camino al Polo Norte,  hay que empezar a organizar los festejos para despedir al 2017 y darle la bienvenida al 2018.

En Fierro  ofrecemos la opción de celebrar con una cena especial de Año Nuevo en UCO restaurante en la que brindamos un menú degustación con maridaje de vinos argentinos. Además, cuando el clima acompaña, el jardín es ideal para celebrar eventos festivos. Recomendamos reservar con anticipación. Soler 5862, Palermo. Tel:  011 3220-6820

Sugerimos a aquellos huéspedes que no se queden a celebrar la Año Nuevo en UCO que se aseguren de reservar con anticipación y de organizar el transporte de antemano. El 31 a la noche suele haber muy poco transporte, y por eso recomendamos que busquen opciones cerca del hotel, o que coordinen con tiempo y estén preparados a pagar tarifas más altas.

El 31 por supuesto vamos a estar ofreciendo nuestro desayuno especial de Año Nuevo. Como es feriado nacional, la mayoría de los locales estarán cerrados, pero si sale el sol y no hace demasiado calor, es un buen momento para ir a conocer los hermosos parques de la ciudad. Y si las temperaturas son muy altas, siempre existe la opción de disfrutar un coctel y refrescarse en la piscina del hotel.

Para quienes quieran bailar toda la noche, recomendamos mirar las sugerencias de la agenda www.vuenosairez.com para conocer las fiestas que se llevarán a cabo en la ciudad. Sino, siempre pueden consultar con el Front Desk de Fierro donde sabrán darle orientación para recibir el 2018 de la mejor manera posible.

With Santa back in the North Pole it’s time now to bid the old farewell and welcome in the new. 2018 is just around the block and if you’re in Buenos Aires for the festivity best to start planning now.

At Fierro we offer a special UCO celebration with a unique tasting menu paired with some top of the line Argentine wines. All in all,  a great way to get to know our cuisine and to enjoy the holiday cheer! Additionally, when the weather is nice, the lovely garden is ideal to celebrate special occasions.Make sure to book your place in advance! Soler 5862, Palermo. Tel:  011 3220-6820

If you are not staying in the hotel for New Year, keep in mind that transport options are very limited on the 31st at night. We suggest that you plan something within walking distance to the hotel. Otherwise, make sure to make transport arrangements in advance and be ready to pay high rates. Also, make sure to make all reservations with time to ensure that you get a table!

On the 1st, we will be serving our special New Year breakfast. As it is a national holiday, most things will be closed, however if the sun is up and the temperature is nice, strolling some of the beautiful Palermo parks is a great option. If it’s hot, you can always cool off at the rooftop pool!

Most importantly, you probably want to know where the best New Year party will be. We suggest you take a look and pick from this list here. Otherwise, ask our friendly front desk staff and they will direct you to the perfect spot to greet 2018!

Ya llega Papá Noel para la navidad que este año cae domingo y lunes. En Argentina, solemos festejar la nochebuena más que 25 mismo. Por lo general, las familias se reúnen a compartir una gran cena o asado, y luego, a la medianoche se abren los regalos, se prenden fuegos artificiales y se brinda con sidra o champagne.

En Fierro también ofrecemos la opción de celebrar con una cena navideña especial en UCO restaurante en la que brindamos un menú degustación con maridaje de vinos argentinos. Cuando el clima acompaña, el jardín es ideal para festejar eventos festivos. Recomendamos reservar con anticipación. Soler 5862, Palermo. Tel:  011 3220-6820
