Founded in 1852 by the liberal wing of the Argentine political elite, this European-style club was a hotbed of progressive ideas up until the mid 20th century. Many former presidents and political leaders have wined and dined in the wood-paneled, chandelier-lit dining room and one, Leandro N Alem, was on his way here in 1896 when he had second thoughts and shot himself through the temple. Try the cochinillo (suckling pig).
