Strolling home on Sunday from my local UPS Store after mailing some Christmas gifts, a merry band of revelers paraded down the sidewalk singing and waving flags, and that's how I found out Argentina won the World Cup! I miss relaxing and watching the games in the summertime because I was just too busy to fit in matches at this time of year. In honor of Argentina's win, here's an article that highlights local food, shops, and art in Argentina's capital!

Buenos Aires’ enduring fusion of European and Latin American influence unfurls throughout its dizzying array of barrios, and for newcomers to the city, it’s easy to wonder, What first? Travel advisors can work with Mai10, a Virtuoso on-site tour connection in Argentina, to craft custom itineraries that show off the sultry capital in a way only a true Porteño can. The city is emerging from the pandemic with new cultural attractions – here’s what Mai10’s Maita Barrenechea is most excited about right now.
The performances at Buenos Aires’ iconic Teatro Colón are known for their elaborate costumes and sets, all of which are made in-house by a team of local artists. Remnants from past performances – Aida, La Bohème, Swan Lake, and more – are now on display in an 80,000-square-foot warehouse in the artsy, working-class La Boca neighborhood.
This shop showcasing wares by Indigenous craftspeople from across Argentina just opened a new outpost in the emerging Chacarita neighborhood. It’s Barrenechea’s favorite spot for wool ponchos, rugs, and other handmade textiles.
Mercado de los Carruajes
The former presidential garage downtown is now a cavernous food hall, with florists, breweries, and food stalls hawking churros, alfajores, empanadas, and more local favorites. Virtuoso advisors can work with Mai10 to arrange a private, chef-led tour of the market.
El Patio Rodrigo Bueno
This new food patio and social project in the Puerto Madero neighborhood is home to shipping containers housing food stands that give small catering companies and Latin American chefs a sustainable way to grow their business.
