What to do
Today in Buenos Aires.
Here’s what Art Factory Hostel offers every week:
Every Friday: San Telmo Art Walk
Explore San Telmo’s burgeoning arts scene including galleries, graffiti, antiques and local artisans’ and designers’ shops. Although it’s a long tour, it’s an excellent introduction to Buenos Aires, in general, and we stop for empanadas or ice cream along the way and end up in one of San Telmo’s oldest bars for a beer or two. If you ask me nicely, I’ll take you to La Puerta Roja.
For Art Factory guests, the Art Walk costs AR $25. For those outside the hostel, the Walk costs AR $75, a little under USD $20, unless you book at least a day in advance. Book here.
Every Tuesday: Asado!
Most Fridays we host a traditional Argentine BBQ. $35 pesos gets you all the beef you can eat, plus salad, potatoes and one beer or soda. We pour the Argentinian red wine until we run out.
Every Wednesday: Movie Night
Join us and a horde of local film buffs in the bar every Wednesday for an eclectic selection of international and local cinema. Often art-house. Unsurprisingly, what with it being Art Factory.
Every Thursday: Music, Mexican & Mojitos
Well, it might not be mojitos every week, but I needed something that rhymed. Anyway, join us every Thursday for excellent live music, delicious mexican food and the two magic words loved the world-over: Happy Hour.
Drink some wine, take a tango lesson, eat typical Argentinian food and watch a tango danced by the pros. $160 pesos includes transportation to and from the milonga .
