Buenos Aires Attractions

Have a Beer in Plaza Serrano

Speaking of, Plaza Serrano is a favorite locale in the ever-popular Palermo Soho

for an outdoor drink – tons of cafes and bars have tables and chairs that spill out onto the street every evening.

Grab a liter of cold Quilmes and watch the sun set on one of the city’s coolest neighborhoods.

If you’re in the mood for craft beers or international finds, just walk a little ways from the plaza and you’ll find The Temple Bar and Antares with more diverse selections.

Watch a Polo Match or Horse Racing in Palermo

Argentina is known for its horsemanship, so why not take in a polo match or a race while you’re in the Capital? If you’re there between September and November, you can see why Argentina is famous for polo at the Campo Argentino de Polo.

And to Argentina Polo Day to be a polo player for a Day!

Or head to the Palermo Hippodrome to see a horserace – they’ll have several throughout the course of an afternoon.

Tickets for the grandstands are cheap, and you can bet-on your favorites.

Even if you’re not there on a race day, you can still enter the grounds to check out the French architecture and see the horses in the paddock.
