Founded in 1852, the Club del Progreso restaurant is the oldest “gentlemen’s club” in South America. The house where it’s located originally belonged to the Duhau family and many important Argentine politicians passed through its doors. The restaurant is located on the first floor, and the main room boasts magnificent boiserie and bronze lamps. There is also a smaller, more intimate room for private events, and a patio with chequerboard floor on the ground floor, with a parrilla grill and clay oven, along with a well-stocked bar. Specialities of the house include the empanadas, grilled entraña steak, lamb ribs, puchero stew and Segovian style suckling pig.
