Buenos Aires Eats

Sip at the Alvear Palace and Shop at Cardón

If you’re jonesing for caffeine, make for afternoon tea at the Alvear Palace Hotel. Argentina’s affinity for this most British tradition is one reason locals are able to eat dinner so incredibly late (54-11-4808-2100).

One of the country's most iconic brands, Cardón has nailed cowboy chic. The boutique at Alvear 1847 (there's another across the street) has antique gaucho spurs of brass and silver ($1,600) and jackets made from the large South American rodent the capybara—replete with scratches from fights ($900).
