      This classic San Telmo pad from the 1920s was quite special. It truly felt like someones home(it had been the owners childhood home) with beautiful high ceilings, original tile work and lovely light.David, the Columbian manager was very helpful in advising me on places to explore the city and also in introducing me to Campari, lime and Sprite while chatting around the kitchen table. Until 3am. Perfect location! San Telmo has the most soul of the BA barrios, in my opinion. The oldest barrio in BA!

      Night Owls
      Porteņos, in my imagination, do not sleep at all. Dinner and drinks seem to start at 9pm at the earliest (more like 10pm), but a weekend evening might begin at midnight (or later!) and go until 7am (and then it's off for morning coffee!). Of course, talking to adults 30+, I've heard that is an early 20's thing to do. Still, I get called an abuela for wanting to sleep by 3am.
