Get inspired!

Lonely Planet, one of the largest publishers of travel guidebooks, released the 2011 Top 10 cities for artistic inspiration list and…guess what? Buenos Aires made the 3rd place! .

Cafe Las Violetas (Almagro)

In Buenos Aires, Lonely Planet points out “the elegant cafes where the city’s best writers hung (and still hang) out”. One of the mentioned places is the Cafe Tortoni. In the first half of the XX century, writers Jorge Luis Borges, Roberto Arlt, Alfonsina Storni, Spanish Ortega y Gasset used to visit this café on Avenida de Mayo.

Bar o Bar (Retiro)

In the nearby café London (Avenida de Mayo and Peru), it is said Julio Cortázar wrote his first novel, Los premios. In the Recoleta neighborhood, everyone knows that the favorite bar of Adolfo Bioy Casares was La Biela.
