If you're waiting for a table at the downstairs Porteno restaurant (which offers classic South American food)head to Gardel's Bar in Surry Hills. With ruby red walls and tango music, this bar is appropriately named after Argentina's favourite musician and actor, Carlos Gardel. It offers an extensive cocktail menu, exotic liquors and syrups, and a funky atmosphere. And the food doesn't disappoint either – specialities include the pulled-pork sliders, empanadas and meatballs with romesco sauce.
