This airy old-school café opposite the Recoleta Cemetery (be sure to check out the giant gomero, or rubber tree, out front) is a bona fide Buenos Aires classic. The city even designated La Biela—whose name refers to the connecting rod in an auto engine and whose walls are plastered with racing memorabilia—an official cultural landmark. Although it's mostly known as a place to spot local TV stars, grab a toasted ham-and-cheese sandwich, or peruse the paper over a café con leche, La Biela stays open until three in the morning, serving a variety of beer and spirits.
