Shoeless Joe's - El Alamo - Restaurant Buenos Aires - Argentina

Shoeless Joe's - El Alamo is a bar and grill in Recoleta open 24 hours a day. It occupies an entire stately building from circa 1898.

El Alamo is the only location in Argentina that offers every NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, and every college football and basketball game. However, this, is a little misleading since 95% of the clientele has no interest in sports. The usual regulars are a mixture of Argentineans and travelers, with a very high percentage of 18-22 year old females.

It is always crowded, let me repeat, always crowded, 24 hours a day. Why it's so popular is not clear. Argentinean students, especially girls, go to El Alamo because of the cheap food and drink prices in an upscale setting. Plus, girls drink for free most of the time.


It is definitely an experience, but it is not an experience for everyone.
