Sleek, opulent, and architecturally stunning, Puerto Madero's al fresco dining and all-night partying lure Buenos Aires’ in-crowd. A riverfront barrio that once felt forgotten, Puerto Madero is now the neighborhood floating through the minds of revelers looking to wear impossibly chic clothes while dancing to epic DJ sets. Puerto Madero is more than high-end, fast-paced fun. From its riverwalk to its Ecological Reserve, the neighborhood's natural beauty is as striking as its man-made marvels.
