A Pedacito of Street Art in The Palermo District of Buenos Aires, Argentina
Updated: Jul 1, 2021
I love street art! When I was in Buenos Aires in January of 2020, I was surprised to see that the city center was like being in New York! Just like the Big Apple, Buenos Aires, Argentina has outlying neighborhoods that have their own distinct charm and character. One of those neighborhoods, and probably my favorite area in the city, is Palermo.
This neighborhood is an artsy area that has lots of small residences, hotels, bars, restaurants, and lots of art! I'm a sucker from some art. I spent one afternoon in this neighborhood taking photos of some of the art I encountered and I am excited to share them with you. If you go to Buenos Aires, Argentina, you definitely have to check this area out.
After a little roaming through the Palermo district of Buenos Aires, Argentina, it was time for coffee. There is a small chain of coffee shops that I thought was pretty nice and had a good comfortable vibe. Afterward, the group I was with, went into a community gallery and studio where artists can use the space and locals can have a place to learn more about the art and history of the neighborhood.
After that nice coffee break and the visit to the museum/studio, we continued walking the many art-adorned streets of the Palermo neighborhood of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Here are some more incredible images.
Our last stop that afternoon was to a craft beer bar that was centered around the art of the neighborhood, so much so, that many of the artists who are commissioned to make the murals we enjoyed actually hang out there.
We were lucky enough to get to talk to 3 of them while we enjoyed our own brews. The Post Street Bar, located in the Palermo neighborhood of Buenos Aires, Argenitna also has a small gallery and showcases a living mural that changes constantly.
