Polo Style at the Four Seasons Buenos Aires
A recent renovation brought modern touches and a polo theme to the Four Seasons in the Recoleta neighborhood.
At the new Pony Line bar, Sebastian Maggi crafts cocktails such as the Des-Coya martini (vodka, pisco, torrontés wine, and Saint-Germain) to go with oxtail empanadas. The hotel offers seven spacious suites in a restored Belle Époque−style mansion adjacent to the main building. Gaucho blankets keep guests warm at private, open-air asados (traditional barbecues).
From $425. Posadas 1086, 54/(0) 11-4321-1200. This appeared in the May 2013 issue.
