Any excuse to party in Buenos Aires is a good one, but the New Year is a surprisingly low-key event in the Argentine capital, with many porteños (city dwellers) escaping the city heat for the countryside and a number of bars and clubs closing their doors over the sweltering summer months. Those that do stay in the city typically spend New Year’s Eve eating and drinking with friends and families, before descending on the clubs around midnight to continue the celebration into the earlier hours.
With the city’s rooftop alive with house parties and family gatherings, the strike of midnight can be an atmospheric time in the capital – a siren blasts out all over the city and the skyline erupts in fireworks.Editor’s Note: This recommendation was taken from our Argentina Things to Do blog.
