If you want to dance or watch the locals, this website lists all the milongas for each day.
Want private classes? My teacher Adrian Luna combines tango with coaching (tango as a mirror), resulting in a life changing experience. I also took some classes with Mariana Soler, who has beautiful insights about connection.
Keeping it local
Instead of traveling through the entire country, or trying to visit all the different neighborhoods and attractions of Buenos Aires, I like to ‘keep it small’. I rented an Airbnb in Palermo and mainly stayed within a few blocks of my apartment. This means I get to feel like a ‘local’, getting to know the local shops, restaurants and people in ‘my’ area. So I will not share any main attractions (you can find these online or in any guidebook, but I usually find them overpriced and disappointing), but rather my personal small ‘discoveries’…
The Airbnb I stayed in, wasn’t remarkable enough to mention, but the area I stayed in, is. I love Palermo. Around Plaza Armenia there are a lot of cafes and trendy shops, but I always stay just a few blocks away, so I get the local feel on a daily basis and the trendiness when I want. The area I stayed this time is Thames / Paraguay.
Places to work
Palermo has some really nice co-working spaces, based on the principle ‘pay for the time you stay, not for what you consume’. You pay an hourly rate between 90 and 135 pesos (about €2-3) including all drinks, snacks and sometimes even lunch. Internet is super fast (an exception in the country) and it is an opportunity to meet other coworkers. My favorite local place is Cafe Flor.
I also regularly went to Bar del Pasaje. A lively local book store with a ‘hidden’ cafe tucked in the rear. Daily lunch menu is around 270 pesos (less than €7)
Cafe Registrado is a light modern cafe with great coffee, juices, salads, cakes and a good selection of healthy food. Internet is average, but it is a nice place to catch up on a few emails. I went to their branch on Gurruchaga street, near Plaza Armenia, which is somehow not featured on their website…
