In 1879 the Lezama family settled at the corner of Lavalle and Callao, in Buenos Aires. The population of the city already exceeded 300 thousand inhabitants and within the next 15 years the number would double. Soon, in 1920, progress would bring the Singer’s sewing machine factory to this flourishing corner which later, in 1930, saw an Asturian immigrant transform it into a Café. Buenos Aires, the port and portal for thousands, stood tall at these corners at the crossroads of the aristocratic neighborhoods and the "barrios", where the Creoles and the newcomers blended in.
In 1948 while Avenida Corrientes did not sleep amidst tangos, pizzerias (pizza joints), daybreak and late late nights, the Ramos family soon jumped behind the Los Galgos counter. The bar saw Discépolo, Pugliese, De Caro and Troilo parade among its tables and it became a true legend. After decades of service to the city, the doors of Los Galgos shut down for a while in search of new horizons but soon reopened to pursue its history.
Los Galgos reopened its doors under the talents of Chef Julián Díaz and Designer-Illustrator Flor Capella, both creators of the Bar 878. They not only rebuilt this unique place with original materials, but brought with them their gastronomic expertise creating a unique renewed space with the right buzz.
At Los Galgos, quality is sought in each dish served. Diners are welcomed and treated with great care.This is a place where history is celebrated but not confused with nostalgia. When it reopened on December 1st, 2015 the bar's mission was to make this unique corner shine again. Los Galgos was to become a special place: authentic, noble, memorable. The bar that you choose to visit. The bar you always want to come back to.
