Libro y Bar Borges y Álvarez - Bar El Calafate - Argentina

Libro-Bar Borges y Álvarez’ narrow, glass-walled balcony overlooks El Calafate’s main avenue. This is a perfect hideaway during the day, to browse a book or have a coffee or drink. On a sunny day, you can relax on the patio below. At night, this is a great place to listen to live music after a day of excursions. Libro-Bar Borges y Álvarez has every type of liquor imaginable, from local microbrews to international whiskies and liqueurs. Even though the shelves do hold tomes by Jorge Luís Borges and several authors surnamed Álvarez, these aren’t the bar's titular inspirations. It’s named for a hit 1980s social comedy show. Closed Tuesdays.
