Live (But Don't Starve) Like an Artist in Buenos Aires

Posted March 12, 2009 by Kate Hamman

Argentina-BuenosAires-60276 In Buenos Aires, Latin American heritage blends seamlessly with European sensibilities exhibited in its cobblestone streets, worldly cafes, and grand avenues. It's no wonder so many artists flock here to paint this subtle blending of cultures. Examine local artwork in a museum, or delve into deep philosophical conversations at a cafe. And then live like an artist in your very own—and affordable—apartment.

Play
Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (Malba): Stop by the Malba, where you'll encounter more than 270 pieces of Argentinian and Latin American artwork from the 20th century through the present. During your visit, you can take part in many of the different educational programs available for adults and children, such as the Encounters for Debate activity that brings curators, artists, and the public together.

Eat
Dada: Named after the early 20th century art movement, this cafe embraces the same rebellious philosophy, with an energetic spirit that encourages conversation and gatherings. Open until 4:00 a.m., you can chat the night away to the sounds of bossa nova. The menu may be a bit heavy on the meat dishes, but the Lomo Dada (sirloin medallion served on top of potato au gratin and covered in a Dijon sauce) keeps people coming back for more.

Stay
Art Suites: Just a few minutes from the financial district, you'll find a sleek and simple place to live like a local. The Art Suites serve as a home away from home by providing all the necessary amenities you might need in your own apartment, including a refrigerator, microwave, cook-top, cutlery, and cookware. This makes it simple to save extra cash by cooking some of your own meals. You'll also enjoy the extra space of a living room and a balcony. Rooms start at $120 per night, and include continental breakfast.

Hey, I visited MALBA. What a great museum! I´ve been to Buenos Aires and I can tell you that people in Argentina is unique. The mixture of cultures makes Argentina such a perfect country. Palermo can be a little posh, but I stayed in an apartment in Palermo which was near the down town so it worked for me.
I hope I can go back, I miss Tango!
Regards,
Rachel
