"Restaurants and Nightclubs in Buenos Aires"

Restaurants in Buenos Aires.
If you go to Argentina, you know that the word vegetarian is unknown in there. so lets face it, you must try meat, so taste, so mmmmm...

so here are a few tips, if you are near Recoleta visiting Evita's (Eva Peron) grave you can walk along Junin Street where you can find a finest option of food, so instead of choosing the sports cafe, or the Henry j. beans ( yes! Argentina got them too!) You can give it a try in Cabaña Las Lilas restaurant. It is posh and not for a low budget (17 pounds per persons not wine incl.)However, you have to treat yourself in a place like this! The specialty is tenderloin that in spanish is lomo, but don't worry, the menu is in english too.

But what happen if you are visiting the docks? Ah! Here you can can invite yourself to Hereford and try their taste ribs (asado) or if not try "achuras" a wide range of different meat and other cow stuff, only for braves! Why? They include more than we want to know! (kidneys, sweetbread, intestines, brains...) prices round 10 pounds per person. Don’t forget to book your table so you can enjoy a beautiful view to the docks. If you're planning something romantic, go at night!

If you are hungry in the city centre make your way up to Corrientes Avenue to eat in el Palacio de la Papa Frita (the kingdom of the french fried) and try a juice steak. If you are really hungry, try the "bife a caballo" a steak with fried eggs on top, also with french fries! Here the prices are lower.

Try the meat and you'll see why it's that famous!

Night clubs in Buenos Aires.
Buenos Aires is proud of their nightlife.(and their well dress ladies too!)

You can find in the capital federal lots of mega nightclubs one next to each other, specially in what it's called Costanera, there you can find:

Caix, only for the Ibiza music type lovers.
Pacha, a friendly environment with the last hits playing all night long.

El Santo is not a building is just a huge grass area with lots of bars and a bonfire with a nice view of the river (it is where the rich Argentinian youth spend their Friday’s nights.

Rivera Este, its el Santo rival, the same facilities and it is next to this one.

The attractive of all these is that they are located next to the river plate. So you can enjoy the sunrise from any of those balconies... sunrise? Yes! Sunrise! Nightlife in Argentina starts at 2 a.m. until 6 a.m. during springtime and up to 5 a.m. during wintertime. If you go there round 10 p.m. or it is closed or it is teenagers time, and I mean early teens.

Remember you can only enjoy music time during Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays if the next say its bank holiday. Argentinean culture protects their students from nights of excess!

You do not have to worry about your age, each nightclub has their restrictions but in all of them, you have to be at least 21 years old.

Do not forget to phone a taxi in your way back
