What to do in Villa Crespo, a detail of everything you can enjoy in this neighborhood rarely visited by tourists.
Regardless of not being central or touristy, Villa Crespo has endless activities and stories so that your stay here continues to be pleasant.
Its identity as a quiet neighborhood remains intact thanks to its streets full of trees and low houses. You will notice that blue and yellow colors abound, but it is not related to Boca Juniors, rather this neighborhood is the birthplace of the Atlanta Club, which wears those colors.
It is located southwest of Palermo, becoming a very popular place for young and modern lovers of gastronomy. It became a notable space thanks to its immense variety of bars and restaurants that recently opened their doors.

Thanks to this explosion of gastronomy, this quiet neighborhood of Buenos Aires has become an incredible option to enjoy the beautiful nights in the city, away from the hustle and bustle that Palermo generates, but still close.
Its history begins in 1800 with the opening of a shoe factory where immigrants and workers returned to this place a mixture of races. Chosen as an ideal place to live and stay, it has many new apartments or recycled townhouses. It is located very close to Corrientes Avenue, one of the most important avenues in Buenos Aires.
Here, you will find Café San Bernardo, one of the spaces declared a Notable Bar and Site of Cultural Interest. This place grew hand in hand with the neighborhood itself, becoming a daily meeting place, a witness to the Buenos Aires tradition, a meeting point for thousands of people who enjoy its ping pong, foosball and pool tables.
