Caroline’s Buenos Aires address book

Caroline’s Buenos Aires address book. Discover her hotspots.

Why Buenos Aires? “I went there for three days for a fashion shoot, which made for a short yet very intense little visit. The best thing was that I was surrounded by people who knew some of the best spots in the city. As a result I fell completely in love with the place and I’d like to bring my family back. Everything from the friendly people, to the beautiful neighbourhoods I visited completely seduced me. I really felt at home as if I’d been visiting forever.”

1 A market - San Telmo Market. “It’s a typical Sunday market, but where you’ll find an incredible mix of products all set up one next to another. It’s the only place in the world I’ve seen a record seller, butcher and fur dealer all share the same stall. It’s unique and full of charm!”

2 A vintage boutique - GIL Antiguedades, Humberto 1o 412 San Telmo next to the market.As the vintage go-to in town, you’ll find everything, right from beautiful old pieces from the 1920s. I loved wandering around, it’s quiet and the clothes are carefully curated. Ask the slightly grumpy owner if you can head down to the basement and you’ll find a huge selection of dresses, capes and vintage jackets.”

3 A spa - Spa Park Hyatt, Palacio Duhau - Park Hyatt Buenos Aires, Avenida Alvear 1661. “Because I came for a photo shoot, post airplane, I decided to try out the spa’s cleansing face mask. The entire environment is splendid with an amazing pool that makes for the perfect place to relax and recharge.”

4 A bar - La Catedral Club, Sarmiento 4006. “There’s nothing better for feeling part of this town than heading to enjoy a drink and dance the night away to Tango at Catedral. This amazing place from 1880 seems to be stuck in time and makes you forget everything, it’s magical!”

5 A restaurant - Restaurant Basa, Basavilbaso 1328 | between Av. del Libertador and Juncal CABA. “Because I only spent 3 days in Buenos Aires I wanted to taste real Argentinian wine and meat. I found this highly rated spot, it’s where fashionable Buenos Aires residents go to chat and enjoy incredible wine and meat.”

Four perfectly Parisian foreigners

Four women, four icons and four reasons to believe that you don’t have to be born in Paris, to be Parisian, just “reborn” there as Sacha Guitry argues.
