Las Cañitas… A Trendy Culinary Ride

Buenos Aires, like any big city, has its stories of success and also its stories of decadence, of quick development and quick oblivion, such as the astonishing recycle of Puerto Madero or the sad downfall of the once famous calle Lavalle. One of this stories of success takes place in the barrio de Palermo on a district called Las Cañitas (map).

It was historically a slum area but is now an upmarket area of restaurants and bars next to the Campo Argentino de Polo in the extreme north of Palermo. What began with some restaurants and bars is now one of the most requested areas for the enterprising, and the most visited by porteños as well as lovers of  the good cuisine.

Yesterday, there were only houses with big gardens. Today, there are plenty of modern buildings and lofts, where the day and night movement is constant. There are options for all the ages and taste. The younger crowd will be able to enjoy of the variety of pubs and discos that play great music and which are decorated with the lastest trades in fashion or with a very retro style.

There are also many restaurants of elegant or casual style where you will find menus that go from classic food to ethnic and fusion dishes, all prepared by the most imaginative chefs. The area offers an alternative ride. Some of the best restaurants and clubs you’ll find here are Bokoto (map), Soul Cafe (map), Morelia (map), Campo Bravo, Lotus Neo Thai , El Estanciero  , Novecento  (map) , Sushi Club (map) to name a few.

During a stroll in Las Cañitas you will also find a huge number of exclusive boutiques, leather goods, health and beauty spas, wine and liquors galleries and antique stores. Las Cañitas Creativa street fair is worth checking out every Friday and Saturday evenings around 6pm. So don´t miss out.
