About these ratings

If you came to Buenos Aires to dance, sashay your way over to this stylish southern neighborhood where tango has left its mark. Though its streets garnered a reputation for seediness in the early 1990's, the area has since blossomed into jam-packed bohemian blocks. Meander through San Telmo's cobbled streets and you'll pass colonial houses, quaint cafés, traditional restaurants, eclectic shops, and festive flamenco and tango clubs.

For shopping, venture to Calle Defensa, a narrow, cobbled street lined with stores. For food, sit down at La Brigada, a steakhouse known for its hearty steak dishes. And for dancing, head to Independencia Street, which brims with nightclubs. If you happen to find yourself in San Telmo on a Sunday, you'll also want to peruse the vibrant San Telmo market in Plaza Dorrego, where you can pick up some fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, and vintage clothing. One TripAdvisor comments, "There are lots of things to do […] getting lost in the endless antique stores, people-watching in a café, gorging on meat and wine in a parrilla."

Entrance into San Telmo's clubs will cost you, but strolling through the streets is free of charge. San Telmo is located to the south of Buenos Aires' city center and is easily accessible by taxi or by public transportation via the Independencia subte stop.
