Buenos Aires - Post Report Question and Answers

What are some typical ways to socialize, either with local people or with other expatriates? Are there groups or clubs that you can recommend?

See above. I know people who joined theatre or singing classes, local gyms, churches, etc. I personally took Russian classes and took our toddler to creative dance class. Whatever you want is out there! - Jul 2020

There are newcomers groups and international groups. There are various Facebook pages with people wanting to meet other friends, new mothers, enthusiasts for various activities. There is the American Club, the Buenos Aires International Newcomers group (mostly on-line), and various embassies that host events. - Jul 2019

Cafe culture. One thing to keep in mind is that Argentines eat really late 10pm or 11pm is the usual time to get to the restaurant so eating isn't usually done until 1am or 2 am which means most clubs don't open until at least that late. - Jun 2015

Cinemas here are pretty cheap, bars/clubs, going out to eat, going to an all day Argentinian asado (cookout), going to a show (even if you don't understand the language they're still entertaining), learn tango, etc. There's so much to do here. If you're bored, you're just a boring person. - Jan 2015

There is a vibrant restaurant community here that make eating and drinking wine a sport. - Aug 2014

People go out very late here. - Aug 2011

Plenty to do and see. Polo games, dance clubs, restaurants, concerts, tango shows. - May 2011

Yes - incredible! Entertaining and going out is a way of life here. But be prepared, the party starts late. Dinner at a restaurant isn't before 10, bars don't get crowded until 1 & clubs won't be empty until after 3:30 or 4 in the morning. - Jul 2008
