Bar El Federal is located close to Plaza Dorrego, but far enough that it’s nice and quiet. It’s a favorite among tourists and Porteños alike. The picadas platters are fantastic. It’s a nice place to stop for a late lunch or an early dinner and drinks.

My opinion: It’s a definite tourist must-do. Old, really Porteño, and with good food.
Location: On the corner of Peru and Carlos Calvo, San Telmo
Price: Inexpensive.
