This is one of my favorite images, as it showcases how street art in Buenos Aires has reached new commercial heights. This is not some random wall! Tegui restaurant commissioned street artist Cabaio/Stencil to bombard the outside of their locale...
Junín 1760, C1113 CABA, Argentina
Sometimes travel is about having faith. I was in Buenos Aires waiting. The month before I had quit my job and bought a ticket to Argentina with frequent flyer miles in hopes to do research for a book I was writing. None of my plans had...
Costa Rica & Fitz Roy 5602, C1414BTF CABA, Argentina
First thing you do when you get off the plane in Buenos Aires? Go get some meat! When I think of Buenos Aires I think about 3 things: Alfajores, Street Art, and the amazing beef that I get to devour. My friend Travis and I headed over to Parrilla...

Buenos Aires, Bolívar 160, C1066 AAD, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Palermo’s Pequeña Italia (Little Italy) was born when a group of guys started serving good food in a tiny trattoria with graffiti-style art on the walls. Try the homemade fusilli or the spaghetti alla puttanesca and a glass or two of Malbec....
Gorriti 5751, C1414BKG CABA, Argentina
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....
José Antonio Cabrera 5556, C1414BHD CABA, Argentina
We asked our hotel concierge for a recommendation on a neighbourhood parilla that served VERY GOOD meat. He sent us to La Dorita in Palermo Hollywood and he was right. Great meat, good wine at very reasonable prices, and a cool local vibe.
Av. Casares 2966, C1425 CABA, Argentina
When the city gets too hectic, retreat to one of Buenos Aires’ loveliest parks or gardens for a walk, a picnic, or a siesta under the trees. The sprawling Bosques de Palermo (Palermo Woods) offers a lovely rose garden and a picturesque lake with...
Salta 1050, C1103ACY CABA, Argentina
The unmarked door at an unremarkable address might have you thinking you're in the wrong place—but you're at Aramburu, one of the city's most talked-about dining venues, and the location is a reminder of the chef's humble start in the business....
Uriarte 1490, C1414DAN CABA, Argentina

Av. Medrano 1475, C1176 CABA, Argentina
A classic Manhattan - paired with a hot dog? You heard that right. Granted, these are gourmet hot dogs. But only the bold and imaginative Fede Cuco, one of the city's premiere bartenders (considered something of a celebrity barman, even, on the...
Most visitors to Buenos Aires divide their time between Palermo and the center, meaning plenty of bus and taxi rides along busy Cordoba avenue. Looking out the window, there's a building that always catches the eye: the striking Palacio de las...
Av. Cnel. Niceto Vega 5510, C1414 BFD, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Buenos Aires' nightlife is famous, and rightly so - but unless you're a serious club-goer, it's unlikely you're going be trekking out to the Costanera Norte to hit up the string of superclubs at four in the morning. Perennially cool Niceto Club...
Serrano 789, C1414DEN CABA, Argentina
The flipside of Buenos Aires' historical bar notables, and just as appealing in their own way, are the contemporary cafés. Look for modern coffee shops and teahouses all over the city, with a particularly high concentration in the Palermo...
