Argentina's coolest neighbourhoodBuenos Aires, Argentina

If you want to hang with hipsters and hobnob in BA’s boho barrio, Palermo Soho is your ’hood. Named after New York’s famous arts and entertainment district, Palermo Soho is a trendy fusion of shabby and chic, and a magnet for artists, musicians and writers (famous Argentine scribe Jorge Luis Borges once lived here). Tree-lined cobblestone streets brim with restaurants, galleries, hotels and boutiques furnished with the wares of local designers. Stroll past gentrified European-style buildings, peruse shops, grab a bite to eat and settle in for an evening of people-watching at Plaza Serrano, a small park that plays host to impromptu jam sessions and vocal performances. Be sure to check out the Sunday crafts fair, where you can pick up locally designed, one-of-a-kind pieces at stalls set up alongside the terraces of alfresco eateries.
