Las Canitas


Posted 5 years, 2 months ago at 10:16 am. Add a comment

A little jewel tucked in between the neighbourhoods of both Palermo and Belgrano, the small neighbourhood of Las Canitas is trendy, young, sophisticated, modern, and antique, and its mix of personalities makes it one of the city’s most favourite spots to visit.

Bordered in between the avenues of Luis Marie Campos and Libertador, Las Canitas is characterized by narrow and tree-lined streets, both old and modern apartment buildings, and a very peaceful and a laid-back vibe. The area is set-up like a square map, about 6 blocks wide and 14 blocks long, and can be easily enjoyed by a stroll through the neighbourhood to take in the scenery. If you live in Las Canitas, you can literally find everything here; deli’s, bakery’s, supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, bars, pubs, clothing stores, shoe stores, hairdresser’s, hardware store’s, electronic stores, gyms, and the list goes on. The residents of Las Canitas love their neighbourhood and it shows by the endless people on the streets, busy if not full cafes and restaurants, people walking with their children and family pets, friends chatting on the corners of every street, and the general feeling that is in the air.

Las Canitas is not visited to see incredible city historical sights, it is however frequently visited to enjoy fantastic shopping (everything from boutique stores to a shopping mall), enjoy a coffee with friends, or head-out to the very trendy Las Canitas bar scene. If you are coming down here, to visit or to live, just make sure you enjoy this Buenos Aires neighborhood and take advantage of everything it offers.

Restaurants

Mikado

This Japanese restaurant serves up delicious sushi, day and night, and probably offers the best quality for the price in the city. The inside is in Asian/modern style, and the outside patio is open in both winter and summer.

Las Cholas

The first of the chain of Las Cholas, this genius parilla/restaurant has done everything right; great food, great price, great atmosphere, great service. Its young, its traditional, its funky, and its modern all in one.

Kansas

This huge lounge/restaurant is almost like heading out of Argentina for the night and landing in an American steak house. The best thing about Kansas is that it manages to deliver its American-steak house image perfectly, keeping this place full to the brim every night of the week.

Jackie O

This local pub becomes full at night, especially on the weekends, and serves up great drinks, pub food, and later plays loud music to all of its dancing clientele.

Novecento

This Argentine restaurant is owned by a few Americans and really hits the spot; a beautiful atmosphere, incredible food (both traditional and infused), and good service keeps this local place hopping with people.

Soul Café

This funky 70’s style bar is a red light in Las Canitas; the inside is painted completely red, with disco lights, and 70’s style decoration around the bar and tables. Great for a weekend drink before heading off to a nightclub.

Sights

El Solar

This upscale shopping mall is on Luis Marie Campos and houses a myriad of stores, everything from home decoration to the latest fashion, and a downstairs cafeteria that is great for an afternoon snack.
