When visitors want to take an evening stroll, many head to Puerto Madero, where dazzling city lights illuminate the port that once served as a major destination for European trade. During the day, this area rests as a quiet business hub, but by night, this little neighborhood bursts with energy. Trendy porteños flock to the neighborhood steak and seafood restaurants and tango at festive dance clubs. Standout spots include Rojo Tango and Asia de Cuba, which are both for their sultry dancing and festive décor.

Recent visitors highlight the wide variety of cuisine available here as well as the striking Puente de La Mujer (Bridge of Woman), a white structure designed by architect Santiago Calatrava. Calatrava's bridge is speculated to have been inspired by tango dancers. According to one TripAdvisor user, "The modern architecture is breathtaking. Across the woman's bridge (a sight in itself) is a good museum of modern art […] great for an afternoon stroll." You'll find Puerto Madero just north of San Telmo and La Boca.
