    This classic San Telmo pad from the 1920s was quite special. It truly felt like someones home(it had been the owners childhood home) with beautiful high ceilings, original tile work and lovely light.David, the Columbian manager was very helpful in advising me on places to explore the city and also in introducing me to Campari, lime and Sprite while chatting around the kitchen table. Until 3am. Perfect location! San Telmo has the most soul of the BA barrios, in my opinion. The oldest barrio in BA!

The waiter asked whether we would like any champagne or limoncello... We declined and he said it was an invitation, i.e. free!!! Well who can argue with that so we ordered the champers!! 2 glasses of free champagne is less than 24hrs... Not bad going at all!! I could get used to these ...
