Today I Checked IN for the next two nights at the Club FrancesBuenos Aires, in the neighborhood Recoleta, in Buenos Aires. During it’s more than 140 years of history, the Club has hosted personalities from politics, science, culture and sports world, always with an important presence and heritage of French origin. The hotel has 28 rooms, of with only two Deluxe Executive Suites like the one I am being hosted at.
It makes me beyond happy and proud when my clients send me texts like this. BTW the hotel they loved is the brand new HUB Porteño Buenos Aires, Argentina. (www.hubporteno.com) Now they are lounging in Jose Ignacio, Punta del Este, after spending New Year’ Eve in El Calafate and El Chalten. She quoted …” The trip has been the greatest. U have done and exceptional job!!!…”
Sneak peak of Haute Experiences and Carlos Melia Recommends cocktail last night at the Rooftop Terrace of the brand new boutique luxury HUB Porteño Buenos Aires. Thank you everyone for joining us, HELPING US HELP. We collected lots of toys to be handed today at one of the local hospitals, to draw a smile on this Christmas on child’s faces. THANK YOU and Happy Holidays everyone.
Nestled at one of the most charming alleys of Buenos Aires, right in Recoleta, is Sirop & Folie, managed and run in a very casual chic style by Agus Numer. They define themselves as contemporary Argentinean Cuisine. Open for lunch, hight tea, dinner, Brunch or your own private event.
Their slogan is Live you own local experience in Buenos Aires, and this is the HUB and heart of this new project that opened only three month ago, in the heart of the district of Recoleta. They propose six experiences based on all or any of the following: Art, Entertainment, Countryside, Tango, Culture and/or Polo. From the moment you step foot into HUB Porteño, you can feel and experience the sophistication and exclusiveness, achieved by using only native elements, materials and creations.
So today I was supposed to have dinner with friends and they cancel, then with family and they cancel on me too, no my lucky night. But hey I am very well used to travel solo and dine and wine on my own, and I must admit I ENJOY IT. So I decided to have my full down and dirty Porteño Gourmet experience and I did indeed.

BEYOND Gay Martini Bar Buenos Aires sneak preview | Buenos Aires, Argentina | Will Buenos Aires get back on its feet and revamp a sophisticated, trendy and interesting Gay Night Scene, that somehow, sometime along the way, in the last two years, has totally been lost ? Well judging from what I have seen today, the answer is YES. BEYOND, the first ever Gay Martini Bar of Argentina and of the city of Buenos Aires, right over Juncal street, meters away from 9 de Julio Avenue in Recoleta. Today, Edgar its owner – original from Chicago, US – invited me to a sneak preview of what by late May 2012 will become, hopefully, Tuesdays thru Sundays, into the hub of the Gay Scene of Buenos Aires.
