Villa Luro: the new bars and restaurants of a gastronomic pole that does not stop growing


With Plaza Los Andes as its axis, this neighborhood circuit has some proposals in the best Palermo and Puerto Madero style.

For more than half a decade,

Villa Luro, a neighborhood in the west of the City, has climbed positions as a gastronomic circuit:

year after year it adds restaurants and bars with the most diverse proposals. 

His is a very broad target

, ranging from innovative foodies to young people exclusively beer lovers and neighbors looking to "eat out" the old-fashioned way. 

The great change in this

neighboring neighborhood of Liniers, Velez Sarsfield, Versalles, Monte Castro, Parque Avellaneda and Mataderos

began more than twenty years ago:

along with the

growth of towers with 10 floors and more, young couples with young children arrived, who renovated the landscape and the habits of the neighbourhood


This is how the tire shops and auto parts stores gradually disappeared and bars, cafeterias, ice cream parlors, breweries and restaurants emerged.

As a trace of the past years, there are also some

low houses, chalet type, that still survive and maintain the neighborhood charm of its streets.

Bars and restaurants of a pole that grows

Tap to explore the data



The first shops to arrive were located around the Ejército de los Andes square

(Rivadavia height 10,300, between Corvalán and Albariños).

They timidly began to expand along Ramón L. Falcón boulevard, García de Cossio street, Larrazábal avenue and later, they advanced through internal streets where they coexist in harmony with neighborhood stores and hardware stores that resist modernity.

Little cafes and ice cream parlors are the busiest during the day, with their attractive and varied offer.

As the sun goes down, the birrerías transform the area with their garlands of lights, music and young people who come to enjoy the night in the west of Buenos Aires.


not only the neighbors and nearby people try the novelties


More and more cars arrive with visitors who want to know these renovated streets.

As an added value, the circuit has excellent accesses such as Rivadavia and Juan B, Justo avenues, the 25 de Mayo Highway and the Sarmiento train station, which bears the name of the neighborhood.

As in the entire City,

parking is a complicated mission, but not impossible (at least for now).

The more than 30 establishments that make up this pole are not the only culinary attraction in the area:

Emilio Castro Avenue (from General Paz to Basualdo) also offers a varied gastronomy.
