Colegiales is a small neighborhood sandwiched between Palermo, Belgrano, and Chacarita. It’s quieter than Palermo and was once very residential, but today, it’s a pretty area with tree-lined streets and old colonial houses, along with great coffee shops and craft beer bars. Buenos Aires has seen an explosion in craft beer in the last five to ten years, and one of the best examples of that is Colegiales’ Strange Brewing, which also serves food. 

Grab a coffee at Altar or La Noire, and don’t miss the Colegiales Flea Market on the border between Colegiales and Palermo. The market sells everything from vinyl records to vintage clothing but specializes in refurbished and antique furniture. For dinner, check out, Anafe, a new-ish venue that opened in 2020 and won the “American Express One To Watch Award” for LATAM in 2021. 

On a nice day, check out Plaza Mafalda, a small park where you can see murals of Mafalda, the Argentine artist Quino’s iconic comic strip character. Fans of architecture should also take a trip to Pasaje General Paz, a private pedestrian alley built by the engineer Pedro Vinent in 1925 that connects Zapato and Cuidad de la Paz streets. From the sidewalk, you can see the alley’s elegant curved balconies and beautiful plants. 

Finding spots to work in Colegiales is easy because the neighborhood is full of cafes. It’s also quite small, so walking to nearby Palermo Hollywood or Belgrano to use a coworking space there is an easy commute. If you’re in Belgrano make sure to check out the spectacular coffee at All Saints Cafe, which also has a location downtown.
