If you´re visiting the Recoleta area, stop by Centro Cultural Recoleta where Pablo Siquier murals are being displayed.  Also in the area is La Biela Café, a lovely traditional spot to stop for a coffee break.

Of course you don´t want to miss out on tango dancing while you´re visiting Buenos Aires, so stop by Club Gricel where a milonga will be taking place from 8.30pm-4am.  To ensure your safety we recommend organizing transport with the hotel.
