I always say BA reminds me more of NYC than Paris with the exception of Recoleta. This is comparable to Montreal centre ville, with clear French influence in the spirit, the architecture and the cafes. One of the must do when in BA

This is the French style of Buenos Aires, surrounded by typical European buildings, from the Belle Epoque in Argentina. You can see beautiful and elegant women walking around, smelling really well, have beautiful cafes to sit on the street. Always be aware of your belongings.

If it's your first time in B.A. you should go. Great architecture, Weekends are very busy with a street market. There is a lot to experience. For a quieter look at the area, go on a weekday.

an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll

There is very little that is authentic about any of the shows. The tango here is over commercialised and lacks all attractiveness. Don't waste your money

If you want tango, or younger, confiteria ideal on suipacha and corrientes . But call first, they are going through changes. Tango is early, disco/ club is later
