Where to stay

Milhouse Hostel

Travellers from all over congregate here to dance the night away at the city’s best clubs and continue the debauchery into the morning. The centrally located 19th-century building offers free breakfast, a well-stocked bar and many lessons and activities. Dorms in this party hostel start at £10 a night. 

Art Factory Hostel

This one-of-a-kind hostel is jam-packed full of original work from budding Argentine artists. The vibrant, eclectic space is an experience of its own and it’s also just a few minutes’ walk from San Telmo market – perfect for exploring the city’s artier side. Dorms start at £7.

Casa Esmeralda 

Located in the more upmarket, trendy drinking area of Old Palermo, this hidden gem also has a tranquil garden, sunny terraces with hammocks and a resident dog. More of a guesthouse than a hostel, doubles start at £12. 

Food and drink

La Cabrera

No visit to BA is complete without a meal at this legendary steak restaurant. Expect mouth-wateringly thick cuts of perfectly cooked sirloins, accompanied by every condiment under the sun. Although try not to be alarmed by the numerous pictures of cows on the walls.

La Morado

To enjoy an empanada, which is a traditional Argentine snack – pastry stuffed full of juicy meat, chicken and corn, or cheese – head to this cosy little cafe hidden off a main street. The impressive range of flavours can be enjoyed at the bar, which is jam-packed with football paraphernalia and vintage toys.


This bar and restaurant is set inside a stunning early-20th-century French mansion. Adorned with pastel window frames and twinkling fairy lights this is possibly the most romantic and beautiful spot in the city. The food can be pricey but go just for a drink or tapas, which can be enjoyed in the courtyard under the stars.

La Bomba de Tiempo

Nothing beats to the tempo of BA quite like La Bomba. The 17-piece improvisational drum group uses African tribal beats and Argentine folk rhythms to whip the gigantic crowd in to a frenzy. The fact that beer is only served in two-pint plastic cups helps too. Prices have soared due to its popularity but it’s worth the pounds. Every Monday at 7pm, £37.
