Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires Travel Guide

Founded in 1965 by the eponymous Ruth Benzacar, this avant garde art gallery in a hidden underground space near Plaza San Martín is committed to promoting contemporary art in Buenos Aires, paying special attention to the work produced by Argentine artists.

It ain’t pretty, but it’s one of the best places to hear tango music without the distraction of clicking three-inch heels. Famed singers like Osvaldo Peredo start around 10:30 p.m., Tuesdays through Fridays, and sing to a crowd that spills onto the street during the summer.
