Clásica y Moderna

Cafe in Recoleta & Barrio Norte

Catering to the literary set since 1938, this cozy and intimate bookstore-restaurant-cafe oozes history from its atmospheric brick walls. It’s nicely lit, serves fine, simple meals and offers nightly live performances of folk music, jazz, bossa nova and tango (after 9pm). The late Mercedes Sosa, tango singer Susana Rinaldi and Liza Minnelli have all performed here.
