It's too bad "the city that never sleeps" is already taken, since in Buenos Aires, you're not even going to get to a club before 2:00am. Chances are, you'll still be going long after the sun's come up, and the weekend pretty much starts on Tuesday, even when everyone's perpetually broke. But there's more to BA than just debauchery and its worldwide reputation for throwing the best parties.

Buenos Aires is really a mix of everywhere in the world, with upscale bougie neighborhoods that resemble Los Angeles, seriously gritty parts of town, and former Parisian-style mansions now housing everything from orphanages to restaurants. The art scene rivals New York's, and both the ladies and the guys here are hotter and better-dressed than in the capitals of Europe. And holy crap, the food! They might not be able to make a respectable pizza, which is crazy considering the amount of Italian immigrants, but you can cut your steak with a butter knife.
