Expat Bars

At one point or another you have probably heard the word “expat.”  It may have been used in normal conversation but there is a good chance it was used in conjunction with a bar, “Hey Nick, lets go to that expat bar!”  Expat bars are in every country.  It is a place that hopefully reminds you a little bit of home (or more so of England/Australia/USA).  Buenos Aires has many expat bars littered throughout the city.  If you are looking for a couple places to hang out with friends and have a beer, just take a look at the following:

1)       Casa Bar – located in Recoletta, just a couple blocks from Santa Fe and Callao is a small bar with many televisions.  Depending on the time of year you can find American football, hockey, basketball, futbol, and many others.

2)      Sugar bar- only a few blocks from Plaza Serano, Sugar bar is a British owned bar providing a number of foreign interests.  Like many expat bars, they have many televisions to watch sports as well as typical “foreign” food such as chicken wings and hamburgers.

3)      The Alamo- not to be confused with the Alamo from San Antonio, Texas, is another expat bar located in Recoletta.  With available space to smoke in the upstairs terrace, this bar is another option for those looking to escape the Argentine bar scene, if only for a couple hours.
