Eat, drink and read – and you’ll be happy this week in Buenos Aires. Monday
The Buenos Aires Book Fair is still going strong all of this week until 12 May and weekdays are the best time to avoid the crowds, Entry is also cheaper, at 25 pesos during the week. The biggest cultural event in the BA calendar. La Rural, Plaza Italia. Until May 12. Tuesday
Need a fling with some raw fish? You’re in luck because throughout May on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, classic watering-hole and restaurant Gran Bar Danzón is putting on special sushi nights given that their chef, Gabriel Dellepiane, has just returned from a trip to Japan. Libertad 1161, Recoleta. Wednesday
For one of the most buzzing happy hours in town, get down to Pony Line bar in Recoleta. Lady of the musical night SRZ checks the tunes, while the superb drinks list will keep the most demanding of palates content. From 8pm. Pony Line, Posadas 1086, Recoleta. Thursday
Got a yen for some real beer? Check out the closed-door Bröeders craft beer night. Two Argentine brothers brew up a storm in Palermo and you get to sample three different types of pint. Book a communal table with friends or keep it intimate with a table for two. You’ll also be well fed with some delicious treats from the NOLA chef Liza Puglia, so expect some southern spice and flavour. We love her fried chicken! Friday For the more mature among us (that would be over 25 in the Latino city that never sleeps) a brand new party comes to Palermo. Promising the likes of an event that has never been seen before in BA, Smile Party kicks tonight at the Central Hall at La Rural. Tickets in advance. Sarmiento 2704, Palermo. Weekend
Every Sunday, Graffiti Mundo runs a bike tour to check out some street art hotspots around the city. Get your pedal on and bring your artist’s eye to the three-to-four hour tour around Palermo and check out works such as this rather appropriate stencil by Cabaio.
