ssr said:Well, Buenos Aires never had much shine for me to begin with. And do you really find Buenos Aires anywhere near as diverse at Toronto? Any small city in the US (and, I assume, Canada) has a great deal more diversity than Buenos Aires.
I appreciate the response, though. I ought to, perhaps, wander around Palermo a bit more (I do live here) but part of the problem is that, with the exception of a few highlights, there's an awful lot that's carbon-copied in Palermo. The cafes, for the most part, could save money on printing costs by just sharing their menus. I've been to lots of bars and nightclubs (in Palermo and elsewhere) and very few stand out in my mind; the DJs, in particular, are just god-awful here and may as well all just be playing the same CD.
Now, I'm sure I'm missing some cool stuff out there. If anyone's got a great tip or two, please, do share.
Yes Canada has much much more diversity. The UN lists Canada as the most diverse country in the world.
I did say BA was diverse on a much smaller scale
You are correct the music here played in the clubs is awful. That's why I go to Sao Paulo or Rio every other month for my fix.
There is a new club called HUMAN on Saturdays if you like clubbing in Palermo by the domestic airport.
Palermo Soho/Hollywood has that NYC meatpacking district feel of many years ago.
