This seventh floor one-bedroom apartment is located in the heart of Palermo, one of the most sophisticated barrios in Buenos Aires.
Ornate apartments rise above even more ornate spires in Palermo, a graceful neighborhood in central Buenos Aires. Despite its expansive grandeur, Palermo's niche neighborhoods feel approachable. Browse sleek ceramics in Palermo SoHo, brunch the day away in Palermo Hollywood, or find peaceful seclusion in Palermo Chico. Wherever you spend your hours in the sun, you'll find yourself joined by the masses on an outdoor patio or atop the stage come nighttime.
Like its neighbor, Palermo Soho, Palermo Hollywood is all about wining and dining as opposed to sightseeing. But for something different, what about a spot of tango? Palermo Hollywood is home to the well known milonga Práctica X (Humboldt 1464). This milonga is notable for the fact that its patrons are overwhelmingly non-Argentine, which might be a good thing or a bad thing depending on what you’re looking for. It’s a young crowd too. Check their website for exact details, but a preliminary tango class from 9pm to 10:30pm, and a dance from 10:30pm until 3am is standard.
Stretch the boundaries of what you consider to be Palermo Hollywood just a little and you get the opportunity to visit the Mercado de las Pulgas (Niceto Vega 200), which technically is in Colegiales. You won’t see many tourists at this covered market, which sells second-hand (or probably more accurately fourth- or fifth-hand) furniture, something which Buenos Aires has no shortage of. Its rabbits’ warren of stalls are fun to poke around in and offer a glimpse of the city’s opulent past. Open daily from 10am to 5pm.
Yes, I know it pops up on every one of these lists, but French-style café Oui Oui (Nicaragua 6068) is so good that it bears mentioning again (and again). Reasonable coffee, fresh lemonade, bacon and eggs, fruit salad with yogurt and granola, great salads, croissants, eggs benedict, bagels…are you convinced yet? And it’s also just a really nice place to hang out and read the paper or abuse the free Wi-Fi for a couple of hours. AND it’s only a short walk from Ministro Carranza subte station, so it’s easy to get to.
It is, of course, hard to get good Asian food in Buenos Aires. It makes sense – Argentineans don’t have much of an appetite for spicy food or complex flavors, and it’d be silly to try to rely on foreigners alone. Vietnamese restaurant Green Bamboo (Costa Rica 5802) is therefore an oasis in the desert. Its menu is littered with words like ginger, soy, fish sauce, lime, chili and coriander. To be honest it’s not perfect, and by Buenos Aires standards it’s expensive too, but for we Asian food lovers, even an approximation is better than nothing.
Sticking with a theme, Palermo Hollywood also offers The Bangalore Pub & Curry House (Humboldt 1416). With its powerful spices it’s hard to imagine a cuisine less suited to the Argentine palate than In
dian food, but the crazy fools who run Bangalore have gone ahead with the concept anyway. The food is great and they offer G&T jugs in a cozy pub atmosphere. Perfect!
Sick of both steak and Argentine interpretation of Asian food? Why not move up the food chain (jajaja) and try the fine dining restaurant Tegui (Costa Rica 5852). Its entrance is a featureless black door in the middle of a wall of graffiti, so you just know it’s going to be cool before you even go in. And it is, and thankfully, in a good way. The restaurant is in fact visually stunning, with gleaming, contemporary black-and-white décor and a large open kitchen at the back. The food is also fantastic, cleverly put together and extremely tasty. The menu changes from week to week. It’s expensive (150 pesos for the tasting menu), but given that it might just be the best meal you eat in Buenos Aires, it’s worth it.
