What are the Buenos Aires spots a first-time visitor can’t miss?

El Rosedal, San Telmo, La Boca, Recoleta & Retiro.

How much do you spend on an average night out on the town?

If you are planning to have dinner in a select restaurant and then complement it with a few drinks in a Speakeasy, you can spend up to $1,000.

Which Buenos Aires shops do you hit up when you’re itching for something new?

To buy clothes in Argentina, I go to a store called Bolivia.

Your all-time favorite musicians:

Luis Alberto Spinetta, Jorge Drexler and Fito Paez.

What’s the one place in Buenos Aires you think is underrated?

Devoto Neighbourhood.

Where would you take a date for a romantic night out?

To Melian Street in the neighborhood of Belgrano R. The neighborhood is surrounded by breweries and ice-cream shops, so I would choose one of the two options for accompanying the walk.

Drunk and hungry - where do you go in Buenos Aires?

Lo de Charly (Avenida Álvarez Thomas, Donado 2101 y, C1430 EEN, Buenos Aires).

Your go-to brunch spots:

Loreto Garden Bar & LAB New American Cuisine & Coffee Shop.

Which local creators do you admire?

Pablo Siquier and Marta Minujín.

Tomorrow’s your last day in Buenos Aires. How do you spend it?

I'd get up early for coffee at Cigalo and then I'd go for a run. I would walk around Palermo Soho in the afternoon and at night I would end the day with a barbecue with friends.

You’re meeting the mayor of Buenos Aires - what constructive criticism would you give them?

Buenos Aires in recent years has been in search of becoming a gastronomic capital, so my recommendation would be that each "Porteño" neighborhood has its gastronomic pole as it has been built in Devoto or in the DOHO, where people from all neighborhoods began to go to enjoy their proposals and the properties were revalued.
