BEYOND Gay Martini Bar Buenos Aires sneak preview

Author: , May 8th, 2012

BEYOND Gay Martini Bar Buenos Aires sneak preview | Buenos Aires, Argentina | Will Buenos Aires get back on its feet and revamp a sophisticated, trendy and interesting Gay Night Scene, that somehow, sometime along the way, in the last two years, has totally  been lost ? Well judging from what I have seen today, the answer is YES. BEYOND, the first ever Gay Martini Bar of Argentina and of the city of
Buenos Aires, right over Juncal street, meters away from 9 de Julio Avenue in
Recoleta
. Today, Edgar its owner – original from Chicago, US – invited me to a sneak preview of what by late May 2012 will become, hopefully, Tuesdays thru Sundays, into the hub of the Gay Scene of Buenos Aires.
… A few month ago, this was a multilevel furniture store with a cafe on the top floor, explained to me Edgar. I used to come here, because I liked the old-french and art deco style furniture. I would stop by to have a look and spend sometime at the cafe, but the store was always empty. So I came with the idea to take over, furniture included and transform it into an exclusive Gay Martini Bar. Buenos Aires needs and deserves an space like this for the local and international gay community…
The venue will have three levels, a BEYOND members area, and a VIP room with a private access and elevator. They propose an innovative Martinis Menu, full bar and Tapas. To be open from 06PM till late night, six days a week. The average price of drinks will range from Pesos 45 (USD 10) on. Chill out music and randomly live DJ performances.
Personally, I am so excited about this new option, in a very depressed and almost inexistent gay night scene in Buenos Aires. A place to have a quick bite, drinks (specially my favorite Martinis), mingle with locals and foreigners in style, enjoy a sophisticated atmosphere, chill out and lounge over funky music. But well that is what I have in my head from seeing the space and listening to Edgar, but we will have to wait and see the final product, which I hope it wont become in yet another disappointment. Beyond, to be opened late May 2012. Juncal between Libertad and Talcahuano.
Hey guys, dress up, shine your shoes, a get your act together and attitude to walk down the main stairs of Beyond. I, personally, look forward to spend sometime at Beyond on my next visits to Buenos Aires, hopefully to a beyond happening, interesting and smart gay night scene. CM

SERENA Hotel Buenos Aires  |  Buenos Aires, Argentina |  SERENA Hotel Punta del Este, has been for long time my favorite option at that destination, and over a year ago, they expanded with their second property to Buenos Aires nesting the Argentinean branch in the exclusive area of Recoleta over Libertad Street. I spent there the last 2 nights and here are a few comments based on my own experience. But one thing I would like to highlight right from the beginning is the excellent job they have done with the Spa/Sauna area on the ground floor, where space was planed, executed and used brilliantly, see photo below. > Check the Full Post and more at www.carlosmeliablog.com
