Synopses & Reviews
Sprawling and strange, magical and melancholy, continually veering between triumph and disaster, Buenos Aires is an irresistible destination. Written entirely by residents, Time Out Buenos Aires casts a cool, critical eye on the places, people, and culture that have made this metropolis great and the contemporary trends that are conspiring to make it greater still. Bypassing the "Paris of South America" clichés, this guide cuts through the confusing jumble of influences that is Buenos Aires trademark. The book sharply profiles century-old cafés and world-famous steak houses; word-of-mouth bars and back-street bistros; late-night tango salons and all-night clubs; prestigious cultural landmarks and improvised warehouse galleries. Candid, current, detailed, and informative, Time Out Buenos Aires is the perfect companion for visitors both new and seasoned.
