The city's night life hotspot
If nightlife is what you seek then Palermo is the place to be. Located northeast of the city, the neighbourhood is a trendy hotspot for shopping, dining and nightlife. If you're looking to party most of your Buenos Aires nights away, then you might want to book your accommodation close in Palermo.
Within the neighbourhood are several individual parts. The oldest part of the area is Palermo Viejo where Jorge Luis Borges and Che Guevara once resided. While this area is often popular for a stroll, it's Alto Palermo and Palermo Soho that attract most of the focus thanks to their numerous cafes, restaurants, bars and boutiques. The Alto Palermo Shopping Centre is also located here and offers some of the best shopping in Buenos Aires. For something more boutique and quirky, Palermo Soho is painfully hip with a thriving scene of avant-garde boutiques.
When the sun goes down the numerous bars and clubs of Palermo spring into action. The best thing about this area is it offers numerous niches rather than trying to please the masses. The super clubs are outnumbered by boutique bars and dance floors with plenty of personality. There really is something for everyone too. If you like to mix your beer with board games then Acabar will show you a good time, or if you like to boogie between bites of sushi, Soul Caf' is where you need to be.
If you're keen to keep the party going past 3am, Miloca is a popular after-party spot. Laid back and with a house-party vibe, the best way to end your night is to grab a spot in the backyard to watch the sunrise with some new found friends.
