Clasica y Moderna: Literary Cafe Culture & Live Music Venue
Clasica y Moderna is a venerable place that functions beautifully as a restaurant, cafe, bookshop, live music venue and art gallery. It dates back in 1918 and it's one of the most famous places in Buenos Aires where arty crowd gathers for drinks and live music.
Clasica y Moderna is a very pleasant and relaxed place with a nice atmosphere and an interesting overhead decorations that include old bicycles and signs. Daytime literary cafe culture and nightly live music gives an artistic atmosphere to the place. The program is available in the website; it can be anything from jazz, gospel, tango and Musica Popular Argentina. Though quite small, the bookshop in the back has a good selection of English-language titles, including Buenos Aires photo and history books.
Favorite Dish: As a restaurant, they offer variety of dishes, from salads, pasta, meat and fish dishes and delicious deserts. As expected, quite good wine card is available. I actually never came here to have a lunch or dinner. But when I passed by, I usually took the opportunity to have a cup of coffee or a glass of Malbec wine in this pleasant ambience.
Clasica y Moderna: Great atmosphere
I came to Clasica & Moderna on the last night of my stay for the music show. While not planning to have a big meal, the bartender told me of his favorite menu item, a lomo, which I went ahead and ordered anyway. It was great: well prepared and presented, and more than I could comfortably eat. This meal, combined with a fantastic show of traditional Argentine music and tangos by a trio, made for one of my best evenings in Buenos Aires.
Favorite Dish: Check out their web page for a monthly listing of music shows. It would be a good idea to call ahead or stop by for reservations.
