Interaction with Guests
I wait almost every guest with fresh flowers in the apartment, to give him the keys , one or two sets. I usually explain details of the neighborghood, and my favorite spots of the city, tango shows, museums, restaurants, bars, bookstores.
It is a quiet and cozy apartment in the heart of Palermo Soho a small area of Palermo Viejo around Plaza Serrano (officially Plazoleta Cortázar) .
It is a newly fashionable area for fashion, design, restaurants, bars, tango and street culture. The atmosphere in many cafés and restaurants strives to be "alternative", which makes this area of the city especially popular with young, upper-middle class Argentines as well as foreign tourists. The traditional low houses have been adapted into boutiques and bars, creating a bohemian feel. The square has a crafts fair on weekends
I posted some pictures of the street and the neighborhood, which I hope you will love to discover.
The apartment is close to Plaza Italia, the Zoo, the Botanical Gardens and the Rural Society, the main exhibition center of the city, and near the Palermo Parks, for picnics, running or biking.
It is close to all the attractions of Palermo Viejo, bars, restaurants, design shops, tango and with very good public transport. Six blocks from the metro (Subte) and bus lines that go to different parts of the city.
There are several markets (Disco, Carrefour, Coto, Cordial) and good places to eat, get ice cream or a drink. If your program is tango, La Viruta, the most famous and popular milonga in Buenos Aires, or Salón Canning, with its sophisticated wood flooring and elegant dancers or Villa Malcom, The Milonguita, Dinzel study, etc.
Buenos Aires is a flat city ideal for walks and biking. The Bicicleta Naranja is a bicycle rental nearby the apartment in Nicaragua and Borges Street.
Buenos Aires’ largest barrio, Palermo, (by size) beckons expats, vacationers and an ever-growing number of porteños like moths to a flame. Regardless of where you choose to live/stay, it’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that most of the people you know and meet in the city will live in Palermo. And, if they don’t, you’ll still wind up here to take advantage of the boundless café and restaurants, bars and nightclubs, parks, museums and galleries, shops and artisanal markets.
That’s Palermo in a nutshell. Now let’s concentrate on Palermo Soho. This vibrant area of the bohemian sub-barrio Palermo Viejo sits between the streets Santa Fé, Coronel Diaz, Córdoba and Juan B. Justo. This is one of the trendier parts of Palermo (along with Palermo Hollywood) and a favorite haunt of backpackers, hipsters and designers. It is home to lazy, tree-lined cobblestone streets where new businesses continue to spring up in the old Spanish-style houses and converted warehouses.
