The place

In the wide range of  classic places of the Buenos Aires city, more alive and more qualified ones is La Biela. The historic bar of the elegant neighborhood of La Recoleta maintains intact  its prestige and lineage as center  of meeting of a regular clientele that it is also nurtured of the occasional visitors that have an appointment forced with La  Biela   when   going   by   Buenos  Aires, one of the redoubts that grant to the  city  its  unmistakable  elegant  and cosmopolitan air.

 

 

La Biela take his name from the Connecting Rod, the rod that is located in an machine and that it transforms a sway movement in another of rotation or  vice versa. Is  an indispensable part in a car’s or train’s engine, that makes it works.  La Biela is Buenos Aires’s typical coffee. Not only for their history, that has  begun more  than 150  years  ago, but also for the decoration, the facilities, the location, the services that it offer and the warm attention offered by their qualified one personal.


In their wide salon, with capacity for 400 comfortably seated people,  one     can      enjoy     an     interesting conversation tasting a classic coffee or some of the delights of their kitchen. The    comfortable    armchairs    make  pleasant the stay in the place and the tables,   very  distanced  one  to   each other, invite to the distended dialogue.


Their front still preserve the structure of more than 100 years ago, in spite of the last remodeling carried out  in 1994.  The wide  terrace  that is  formed here, where 300 people can be located,  in  view  of  Church  “Nuestra  Señora del Pilar” and of the Cemetery of  the  “Monjes Recoletos”, La Biela allows to enjoy the same services and quality that inside the local, either that we  locate  ourselves  so  that  we  can  take sun, or to the shade that gives us the  centennial  hindu  rubber  tree  that  rises there. football news


Inside   of   La  Biela,  the   sober  decoration gives a distinction touch to the atmosphere. The curtains on the windows  and the  combination with  the  wood  conform a  warm and  cozy place. In their walls the classic radiators Hispano Suiza, connecting rods,  old streetlights and  horns of  old  automobiles  can  be seen.  Due  to the  inclination “tuerca” (nut, colloquially a reference to fans of car-racings) of the place, we can find pictures of the big ones of the motoring, as Juan Manuel Fangio,  five times  world champion  of  Formula One, José Froilán González and Clay Reggazzoni among others.


A special mention deserves the pictures  located  on the  wide bar.  All they  were   taken  by   a   big   of   the  Argentinean literature: Adolfo Bioy Casares who took the photos in order to  illustrate  with  them  an  Jorge  Luis  Borges’s book. Both were customer of La Biela, and these pictures attest the pass of the time in the neighborhood of La Recoleta, also showing a facet perhaps little known of this great writer's: that of photographer.
