Piola Palermo Hollywood
Explore the contemporary culture of Palermo
If the city’s history and architecture is downtown, and the old money is in Recoleta, then sprawling Palermo—divided into several sub-neighborhoods, including Soho, Hollywood, and Palermo Chico—is the center of the city’s contemporary culture. From modern art and politically charged graffiti to craft cocktails and an evolving gourmet-dining scene, this is the place to see the city’s contemporary tastemakers in action. Come for dinner and drinks in a closed-door restaurant, pop into an edgy art gallery, or rent a bicycle and cruise past some of Buenos Aires’ most striking urban murals.
