Topic: Gallery Nights BA
Sofitel Hotel, Arroyo Street, Gallery nights and why not Lighthouses. Argentina is returning to an improved cultural life, new cultural centers are coming to life daily, art museums, the rebirth of those once famous Porte?an cafes, bands of street musicians, the growth of artisans fairs as well as markets for collectors, the daily artistic street shows, as well as many more that are being held in theatres of Buenos Aires. All this is putting this city, once more in a central place within Latin American culture. Favourite spots: Every Barrio -neighborhood- is coming back to life, showing in every corner some cultural ambiance... even on the train, when traveling back and forth from work, passengers enjoy great folk music played by street musicians. What's really great: All this, plus this city's amazing architecture, blending the chick modern areas as Puerto Madero and Recoleta with the colonial Monserrat and San Telmo, adding some of the bohemian style of Palermo Viejo and the lights of Microcentro (downtown BA and the most famous Corrientes Av which was renamed as the Bookstore Av.) make of Buenos Aires a place one must visit at least once in a lifetime! Accommodations: Tips for the Traveller that enjoys good living. Straight down Arroyo St, located in one of the most important and luxurious district of Buenos Aires is the Mianovich Tower. This Neoclassic evocation of a light house reflects upon a 1920s atmosphere of elegance under the name of Sofitel Hotel,Buenos Aires.The origianl owner of the Hotel and building,wanted that every ship sailing into the docks bringing imigrants to Argentina, would be able to see the lights on its lighthouse like tower, and know that they had a room there for them. Gallery Nights. Surrounded by art galleries that are currently exhibiting superb porte?an and European art, this historic and artistic treasure invites you in through an internal promenade of crystal ceilings.Every last Friday of each month, all are invited to Gallery Nights. Restaurants: Le Sud, is in the same building,the restaurant in this the Sofitel Hotel,a petit and very sumptuous liberal Art Dec? styled restr? with a splendid and discrete service, is a perfect opportunity for a delicious and intimate meal. The menu at noon offered us an impeccable selection of several excellently handled prix fix?e dishes. Codfish dices on a spicy cream souse laid on a puff paste and vegetables crust combined a strong flavor fussed with the delicacy of the fish, is one excellent dish. Also highly recommended, is the exquisite duck confitte ordure followed by an delightful rabbit roast on a soft french mustard cr?me. Desserts are ecstasies delicatessens, such as the worm wrapped apples or the three chocolate terrine. All generously accompanied by a fruity Merlot. Just an excellent choice, a treat for your soul. As we leave, on our left we notice La bibliotheque, a magnificent option that invited us to return to this superb site for a late brunch.
