Milion, Buenos Aires
It's definitely one of my favourite spots in Buenos Aires. The catch about this place is the building, which is a 3-storey mansion from the beginning of the last century.
The entrance was built for coaches to be able to go into the house and leave the people at its door. They still keep it the same way.
From September to April the best thing to do is to sit in the garden, cos there's a great view of the building and a staircase which leads to the second floor. Whenever I'm there, I always get the picture of a bride walking it down.

I really like Million. It reminds be a lot of Establishment in Sydney. The bar area is small but nice with the strangest picture on the wall behind it. Looks like Len Berman with a knife in his chest.
I come here every time I am in town and really do like it. I have never had the food here though and next time will try it.
It’s a good place to come and have some drinks and just chill and enjoy the evening. It is becoming more and more well known on the travel circuit but the good thing is even though a LOT of my friends have been to Buenos Aires it is still not yet on the mainstream radar. So even being busy here is not so bad for those of us who enjoy it.
In warmer weather you can get your drinks downstairs out back.
In short this is my favorite bar in all of Buenos Aires
Apparently this place is quite well known, though I have just discovered it. It is a place to go with friends to eat or to drink. It's situated in what was once a HUGE house, on three levels, and there are all these different rooms on different levels with different atmospheres where you can just sit and chat to friends. It's very casual, with small stools for sitting, couches, etc. It's really hard to descibe just how great this place is if you have not been. Part of the place is reserved for eating as well.
There were lots of foreigners there as well as locals, so this place is known and very popular!

Cute club with nice ambience, atmossphere. Nice looking people; professional cute bartenders... But watch out. This place is HARD to find. No Signs front the street. You have to KNOW it's here. That is how Off the Hook this place is!
Dress Code: City / Urban hip...
Very posh and brimming with sexy women, Milion is a dark, candle-lit, ornate place with numerous glass doors and partitions, situated on 3 floors. The middle floor appears to be the bar; the ground floor is a restaurant, although the heat suggests it could also be a sauna; and the top floor is a labyrinth of small, white rooms, with sofas, tables and cubed-seats.
Dress Code: Dress to impress - GONZALO (See Photo) is the best bartender! Cute too...
This sophisticated bar, restaurant, and gallery with tables outside in its inviting open air garden in the stately streets of Barrio Norte is actually a converted mansion once home to an eye doctor. And now one of the city's coolest bar/restaurants.
Despite the originally old house, the place is modern and warm.
A two-course meal featuring lashings of
carpaccio, the grilled local fish abadejo and ample beer and Argentinian wine cost just $25 a head, but the experience is just priceless.
Milion is very posh and brimming with sexy women. Milión is a dark, candle-lit, ornate place with numerous glass doors and partitions, situated on 3 floors.
This place used to be a stunning mansion with a garden but was then converted to become this go to hot spot.
I was told that during the '01 economic crisis in Argentina, the former owner of the property sold it for 1 million dollars making it a hell of a bargain.
Milion is a great place to have a private party, romantic dinner, or drinks with friends. A cool, breezy summer night would be the ideal time to check it out.

How to find it - at first glance you may have some trouble finding the place because there is no sign but look down on the ground at the main entrance and you'll see a discreet name plate set into in the floor. As you enter through the main corridor don't be intimidated by the grand staircase to the left.
A must to check out while in Buenos Aires!
Dress Code: Trendy
In my opinion, the best bar in Buenos Aires! Drinks are very good there, they have a nice selection of wines and the food is great too!
Happy Hour starts at 7pm and it ends at 9 pm!
En mi opinion, el mejor bar de Buenos Aires! Los tragos son muy ricos, tienen una buena seleccion de vinos y la comida tambien es muy buena!
El Happy Hour es de 19 a 21 Hs.
Read other reviews before my trip down there and agreed with all. We were there on a Sunday night. Service did not start until 9pm and we finished dinner shortly before midnight. Bar area was hopping but restaurant far from full, probably because it was Sunday. Food excellent but relatively limited menu. Service superb, friendly and professional. They knew enough not to remove my empty plate while my wife was still eating her course. No sign on the outside so you need the address: 1048 Parana. It is about 100 feet south of Av. Santa Fe on west side of street. Recommend sticking to main streets late at night.
Dress Code: Saw variety of styles but mostly cool casual. Not the type of place you wear shorts but jeans were represented.
This bar/restaurant is definitely one of the prettiest spots I've ever been to! The interior of this converted 19th century mansion is separated into multiple areas - bar area, side room off the bar, cozy lounge area, and dining area, all on the second level. The first and third levels have more seating options as well. I loved the outdoor terrace and garden area! They even have a dj spinning music.
Only negative is that this place is filled mainly with foreign expats and tourists. When it first opened it was primarily locals, but now the mix has changed due to the high prices for drinks and food.
A must-go night club!
It is a converted mansion in the heart of Buenos Aires, which is chock full of Portenos and tourist. The structure is amazing, with the sweeping staircases and large waiting roms of a Southern mansion. The bathrooms can be hard to find and are small. Lots of tourist and locals. The waiters come by slowly, the place is packed and the waiters did not speak English. no problem for moi, but girlfriend had to wait until I got back from bathroom before she could get a drink. I saw more Americans here than anywhere else in BA. I met the bartender of an American bar on BA who was trying to chat up some beautiful Portenas. Unfortunately, due to lack of time, I never made it to the Ameircan bar to check it out. Great place to people watch.
Lots of very attractive people.
They also serve dinner.
Dress Code: CAsual-Everything from jeans to suits.
Million is an old French style Palacette from the turn of the 20th Century. It used to be owned by a rich family. Now, it's the nicest place to visit not only for the ambiance but to admire the archicteture itself of the house.
It is a three-floor house where the ground and first floor is to eat and/or have a cocktail and the second floor is a cool lounge/art gallery. The third floor is a mistery, it is closed to public but someone told me that's the floor where the owner and his wife had their fabulous room.
During summertime, try to get a table out in the backyard of the house to enjoy the fresh air and the moonlight.
Best drink for me, Kir Royale (champagne and cassis liquer)
Dress Code: There is no special code but don't go as a grounge guy because you'll feel out of place. People are not stereotyped there so you can feel free and confy.
When you mix an early 20th century house with electronic music, then you've got Million. This place is THE place to go before going dancing. Get a couple of drinks, grab something to eat, chat with your friends, or simply take a look at the impressive house where it's built, the place is simply great. A "must-be" if you're in Buenos Aires.
One thing: there is no sign outside the building, so you just have to get there by the address.
Dress Code: No dress code, but don't appear with shorts or sandals. Argentinian people do dress quite well, so don't be the clown of the party.
This Recoleta bar is seemingly hidden away on the street - but once you enter it's easy to be impressed by the effort put into restoring this former French-style family home.
Downstairs there's a restaurant serving a mix of rich fusion-style dishes. Take the steps up and you'll be greeted by a mix of some of the city's most stylish 20/30 something residents mixing with tourists lucky enough to know about the place. There's a wide selection of extremely good cocktails and the very friendly staff (who all speak English) will also be happy to bring you a selection of Spanish-style tapas and olives to nibble at. In the warmer months you'll also be able to sit out in the candle lit garden and look up to the stars. Finally the top floor houses a vip area where suits & the latest styles are very much the fashion.
Very much recommended for the start to a classy night out.
