Argentina as a country started next to the river, where San Telmo is located. Is a wonderful place that you should visit during the day (because during the night is not that safe). Many museums, ancient bars and a colonial atmosphere. History itself recreates with life.
Plaza Dorrego is a park. is one square with a lot of space that during weekends many sellers offers many different items, all very argentinian. You would find from singers selling and singing their stuff to paintors and antiques from last century.
If you are in the area, great place to have lunch. They have a happy hour of local beers. Antares blonde from Mar del Plata is one of my favourite, and the Mexican sandwich is awesome. Great prices, great service, great food and great draft beer.
Once you visited San Telmo, in order to continue with historic places, you are suppose to visit this cafeteria. Get a coffee, some "medialunas" (croissants), or pan dulce (I don´t know, just try it). "Chocolate caliente" (I dont need to translate that) also is a good one. It is ancient in many ways, but it´s a place worth visiting if you would like to understand argentinian culture. You see, in there people would gather to talk and interact without any cell phones.
It is located underground and you should make a reservation if you go near the weekend (except for sundays night). Get the cassoulet as a starter and the lamb as a main. Medium rare, because medium would be dry for the kind of meet it is. They have many catena wines: I love the DV Cabernet Malbec, or the Malbec Malbec.
Next to Sivela, drinks are awesome and they have one the best variety I´ve seen in a bar in Buenos Aires. Service could be awesome or just nice, but always have people around takin care of you.
Is one of the museums I like the most. Sometimes it´s up to the artist who is visiting the place (they usually change their guests), but most of it it´s interesting. It´s not expensive at all and you dont have to know about arts. I dont
I have to recognize that I dont know tha place yet, but so many people recommend it to me (and I know a couple of guys who work in there who recommend it also) that I´m pretty sure you would find the best meet you could find in a restaurant.
Maybe for the afternoon, it would be a good call to visit Puerto Madero neigborhood. And inside there is this beatiful hotel (Faena Hotel) made from a silo from 1904. Phillip Starck designed the place, so it totally worth it. Maybe for the tea time.I
They called it (almost every single magazine) the best restaurant in Buenos Aires. Go and have a look for yourself.
No shows, no expensive dinners. Tango for learning, for dancing, for living. People from Buenos Aires go to dance tango, and it is something you should experience, not only watch. This would be the place.
Quiet and relaxing. You been to Buenos Aires to know a large city, now get to tigre to have some peace. Outstanding.
Fourty minutes by boat would get you there. You´ll enjoy the trip to get there, and the restaurant. It´s not amazing because of the food or the service, it is because the place is unbelievable. Dont miss it.
The museum itself it´s just fine. But the castle worth the visit (and the pictures, mostly).
Worth the visit. They have some incredible paintings. But still, another tip from someone who doesnt know much about art in general
Wine bar! Get your dinner at the wine bar and ask for suggestions. You have a sommelier who would guide you through different labels, and you should get different dishes in order to combine with awesome wines. Service in there is always great. Colonia Las Liebres Bonarda is one of my favourite wines, and the Ceviche (peruvian dish) is delicious.
