A flower shop by day, but, at dusk, Florería Atlántico opens up one of its doors that leads down to a hidden bar in the basement. This Argentine speakeasy, located in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Recoleta, was recently awarded the third spot on the World’s 50 Best Bars, an annual list compiled from the votes of over 500 drink experts, including bartenders, drinks writers, and cocktail aficionados. Florería Atlántico´s jump up from its 14th spot on the 2018 list is a testament to Buenos Aires’ growing cocktail scene.
Florería Atlántico´s décor and special cocktail menu have been culturally influenced by the wave of immigrants that arrived from many different countries and settled in Argentina in the 1900s. Here are some uniquely diverse cocktails from the award-winning bar:
