Palermo - A hipster haven in Buenos Aires

Palermo is a barrio in the North of Buenos Aires and, as with the North of Melbourne has become a bit of a hipster Mecca.

It contains foody restaurants, food trucks, markets, hidden bars an street art in its many narrow alleys.

To the North of Avenida Santa Fe, Palermo has a large parkland, including several lakes and a well manicured rose garden.

In addition to the restsurants, bars and extensive parkland, Palermo also has the local racetrack where the Buenos Aires market is held.

The Market is a new addition to Palermo's foody culture and consists of a series of food trucks and craft beer stalls. The quality of the food is excellent and for entertainment you can drop a few pesos on the races :).
