After 111 years, porteños of all ages still seek refuge here come nightfall. It's familiar, friendly, and lively, with a long, low bar, a few primitive refrigerators, and creaky crooked floorboards. Reserve a table on Friday or Saturday for a night filled with sangria, calugas de pescado (morsels of fried fish), and live tango (a graying but beguiling trio takes the stage at 9 p.m.).
