Must Do Cultural Activities in Buenos Aires

Argentine Lifestyle/Culture

Laid Back

The Argentine Lifestyle is much more laid back including the large cities. We like to sit, eat, and talk for hours with friends, enjoy ourselves at night, etc.

Fast Paced City

In Buenos Aires, it’s much more fast paced. There is so much “transit”, so many cars, buses, lots of people.  It’s also a beautiful city.

European

Buenos Aires is the only city in Latina America that looks and feels like Europe!  BA has such a prominent Spanish, Italian descendance as well as France, Germany, and other European countries as well.

Friendly

People are very friendly- even though you might not know each other very well, you still meet and greet people with “un beso” a kiss on the cheek. You can start talking to anyone in the bar.

“Smooth Talking Men” = CHAMUYEROS

Los Argentinos (Argentine men) are quite the “smooth talkers” with pick up lines.

Value Family

Argentinians are very friendly and close to their families.  Usually they eat at 9pm or 10pm at night.

PARTIES

On the weekends, at night, they usually do a “preparty” of getting together with friends at someone’s house to have a drink or in a bar.  Afterwards, they go out to dance at around 2am until 6am and afterwards, go out for breakfast!

During the week, after work, usually go to “After Office” = happy hour and drink beers or other drinks.

Free Tango Classes

Classes in LA CATEDRAL y LA VIRUTA

  • Where the young and “not so young” people go to dance!
  • You will learn the basic steps
  • Afterwards, you can dance in a “Milonga” which is the Tango Dance Hall

 

Highly Recommended:

  • Thursdays classes in the Cathedral
  • It’s a medium sized, dark place, above is the bar. It has a very “tango” ambience.

See Tango Singing at Tango de Barrio on Thursdays at night in Almagro

(Roberto o el Conventillo de Teodoro).

 

Tango:
You can either go to a touristy show where you watch tango (quality is high, includes dinner) or go to a local milonga, to see how the locals do it and take a class.
Best touristy tango show is Señor Tango
Vieytes 1655 Barracas
Capital Federal , 1275
+54 11 43030231
Another good place is Esquina Homero Manzi (more traditional)
