Where to Stay // Palacio Duhau
Where to Stay // Palacio Duhau
If you’re a fan of Parisian neoclassic architecture, one look at the commanding exterior of this Park Hyatt property and you’ll think you’ve died and gone to heaven.
Sunday Brunch // Oui Oui
Sunday Brunch // Oui Oui
This restaurant in quaint Palermo Viejo has a Sunday brunch worthy of the hippest Parisian quartier. The café con leche and French pastries are some of the best in BA.
Afternoon // Recoleta Cemetery
Afternoon // Recoleta Cemetery
The maze of narrow walkways here is flanked by crypts in nearly every style, from Italianate to art deco. The cemetery is home to a large family of wild cats, and fans of Eva Perón still leave notes and flowers on her tomb.
Brasserie la Petanque
Dinner // Brasserie la Petanque
The French onion soup, steak frites and escargots at this brasserie taste magnifique when paired with cabernet sauvignon.
Nightcap // Bar Milion
Nightcap // Bar Milion
The owners of Bar Milion became so obsessed with a neoclassic French building that they bought it, renovated it and created a lively gathering place and Buenos Aires’ go-to bar.
Architecture Buff: Buenos Aires is called the “Paris of the South,” and it’s obvious why when you take in the neoclassical architecture in Argentina’s capital city.
