The Alvear's chic French restaurant, La Bourgogne, may be the city's best (the only Relais Gourmands establishment in Argentina), but the Lobby Bar is where it's at. Located in the Recoleta neighborhood, the most refined quarter in the city, the Alvear Palace Hotel stands as an elegant icon in Buenos Aires. Slink into the Lobby Bar and mingle with well-heeled Argentines, international jetsetters, and visiting royalty. The bar offers a fine selection of cognacs and single malt whiskies, and creative cocktails abound. Try The Alvear, a sultry mix of gin, pineapple pulp, Benedictine, lemon juice and champagne, served in a Martini glass and topped with a cherry.
