Several years ago, the Unicorn was born somewhere on earth. He quickly made it his mission to travel all corners on earth in search of new cultures, landscapes, beaches, nightlife and good parties.
After enjoying Asian culture and partying with the Buddhas, he had rested on the islands of Indonesia and Thailand. Then he decided to wake up the Egyptian mummies from their eternal sleep and go explore the African night.
In Australia, he enjoyed jumping into clubs with some random kangaroos. During his time in Europe, where he especially got crazy with Copenhagen, he was one day enjoying the strong, Scandinavian liqueur, Snaps. As he was walking down Stroget to go sunbathing at his favorite spot, Island Brygge, he took a look around at the happy people surrounding him and realized that was his life: to live amongst these laughing and smiling faces. That’s when it dawned on him: He should open a bar.
Today, The Happy Unicorn has landed in Buenos Aires and he invites all the lovable people from around the world to perform their party fantasies in a relaxed atmosphere, to come and spend a good time at his bar house, a unique and hidden one in the neighborhood of Palermo, Buenos Aires.

Buenos Aires Multi-Lingual Language Exchange Night
An Indian, a Russian and an Argentine walk into a bar… “Ouch!”
This isn’t just a bad joke, it’s also a reality. Every week in an Irish pub in the heart of Buenos Aires people of all nationalities, including local Argentines of course, come for a drink, a chat, and even a bite to eat. Some come to meet new people, some looking for a date, some even come straight from the airport looking for a couch to surf on! But most come with the intention or at least the excuse of practicing another language.
How does it work?
It’s probably the most relaxed kind of language exchange you can imagine. There are no rules, you don’t have to pay for anything or write anything down and nobody is going to tell you what to do. You can talk to whoever you like. To make it easier to find your perfect language exchange partner(s) just find the little table with the flag stickers. There’s a kind of system worked out in which the sticker that represents your native language goes at the top, and the rest follow in order of ability. You’ll see people wearing flags from most European language speaking countries, as well as Slavic, Arabic and Asian languages. Of course the most common exchanges are Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French.
So that’s ‘What’ and ’Why’. Who, When and Where?
Everyone is invited and nobody is excluded. People here are very warm and inviting. Nobody get’s left behind and as you come back the second and third time that you start to recognise some people. The event is every Tuesday in the Micro Center. To see more info, photos and to find out about Slavic and Asian nights check out the page at facebook.com/mundolingo
Tired of being a typical tourist and exploring cities in the most generic fashion?
Here is your opportunity to ditch the norm and have a truly unique experience.
Once you have arrived in Buenos Aires you will realize that this beautiful city is way too big to explore everything without a little help. Barrios like San Telmo, Recoleta, La Boca and Microcentro are full of unique and fantastic history that shouldn’t be missed, but there’s more to see off the beaten path. WalkBA will allow you to see the city more authentically as you travel on your own two feet with a local as your guide.
You’ll be taken to the beautiful parks of Palermo
where you’ll learn about their historic background while walking by the Planetarium, the rose garden (El Rosedal) and the Zoo; to the beautiful historic area of Belgrano and Chinatown (Barrio Chino); and finally to Nuñez, a neighborhood that holds part of Argentina’s modern history, where you’ll see the biggest clandestine center to have held people in captivity during the Dirty War and the Memorial to the Desaparecidos and the victims of state terrorism right by the river.
In this tour you will be amongst the people of Buenos Aires
and experience daily life, as we will travel from one barrio to another by bus and subway.
The tour runs Saturdays and Sundays and starts in the corner of Libertador and Pueyrredón avenues (Recoleta) at 10 am.
To have an anything but ordinary experience, reserve your spot by e-mailing email@example.com and be sure to specify the date and number of attendants.
Buenos Aires is a city with history–and nowhere is its grandeur on fuller display than in its classic cafes.
From the touristy can’t-miss Cafe Tortoni (Avenida de Mayo 825) to the slick modernism of Florida Garden (Florida 899) and the intricate stained glass of Las Violetas (Rivadavia 3899), Buenos Aires’ best cafes are as much about ambiance as great coffee. But it’s hard to enjoy your visit if you don’t know how to order what you want. So here’s Once in Montion’s simple guide to making the most of Buenos Aires’ coolest cafes!
Have it Your Way.
Sure, the word for coffee in Spanish is “café,” but if you just ask for “un café,” you may be surprised to find yourself with a bitter black espresso shot and no room for milk. (Of course, if this is what you like, order ahead!). If you want a small espresso shot mixed with milk, ask for “un cortado,” and if you want a bigger one, say “un cortado en jarrito.” But a cortado is still pretty strong; if you’d like a weaker coffee, go with a “café con leche”–half coffee and half milk. And if you want just a hint of coffee and lots of milk, order “una lágrima.”
Cancel the Caffeine.
BA’s cafes aren’t just for coffee lovers. If you’re in the mood for tea (té), they’ve got you covered. Another specialty is called a “submarino”–a bar of chocolate submerged in warm milk. Stir it up to make something like hot chocolate. Finally, most cafes offer “licuados”–fruit shakes with a base of water or milk.
Take Advantage of Desayunos and Meriendas.
Most of BA’s classic cafes charge an awful lot for real food, so approach the steak or pasta with caution. But they’re the perfect place for a snack–especially if you take advantage of “desayuno” (breakfast) and “merienda” (snack) specials. Most cafes offer café con leche served with “medialunas de manteca” (sweet, sticky croissants) or “medialunas de grasa” (denser, savory ones). Many others will serve café con leche with “tostadas,” small pieces of toast accompanied by jam and cream cheese. These specials shouldn’t put you out more than 20 pesos or so, making them the most affordable way to dabble in BA’s café culture.
Thank you all for coming!
