Puerto Madero

“Every year, when we produce the festival of creativity El Ojo de Iberoamérica, at the Hilton, I take the time to experience the region. The Puente de la Mujer and the hotel Faena, with its restaurant El Mercado, are located there.”

“When I had an office in Palermo, this corner bar was my favorite place to have breakfast. With a French style, it has artisan dishes and a lemonade with ginger that I love.”

Lago de Regatas, Palermo

Av. Infanta Isabel

“It’s where I have always enjoyed going for a run, a walk or simply taking the time to clear my head among the greenery, near the lake. It’s also a good place to go with friends and catch up. It brings me good childhood memories, because that’s where I used to play as a kid.”

Calle Malasia

“I lived on this street between Palermo and Belgrano until I was 17 years old. For me, it’ll always be called Arribeños. It still has cobblestone streets and houses of different styles. The region has its legends: rumor has it that it was on the hills of Calle Maure (where the Abadía is located) that José Hernández (the author of Martín Fierro) wrote part of his work, when Avenida Luis María Campos was still a river.”

Xalapa

El Salvador 4800

“In the corner between Calle Gurruchaga and Calle El Salvador, this Mexican restaurant serves some great margaritas. After, take the time to explore the streets in Palermo Viejo, like Calle Honduras, with its mixture of fashion and audiovisual creativity, art and drawing. It’s also an interesting district for food.”

Barrio Saavedra

“Just like we were the first to move our base to Palermo Hollywood, we came to this neighborhood that’s also in transformation three years ago. This quiet region with small restaurants is easily accessible and it has been attracting more and more offices. Explore Avenida García del Río and Avenida San Isidro, or Parque Saavedra, and stop by Tienda de Café to have a coffee and a tasty sandwich, for instance.”
