Walk around and people watch. Feel the city lights and pulse. Get lost in one of the dozens book stores open at 2 AM, grab a pizza like a cool porteño. Corrientes is a big part of BA and worth a short walk at night....More

Corrientes is a huge Avenue - the only remotely nice area is close (I mean 4-5 blocks) from the Obelisque. Small streets, cheap shops, and definitely not the best architecture in Buenos Aires. Beware if you're walking on the streets between Palacio Barrolo and this...More

Close to many of the main city sites in Buenos Aires, you will probably find yourself walking down it without knowing it. Check it out on a map, or simply enjoy it without knowing you are there!

If I wasn't seeing a show, i'm not sure I would seek this place out but i also didn't spend a ton of time here and didn't come here at night. I love the culture of a city and this was a little too "busy"...More

As someone who loves walkable streets, I can say Av. Corrientes is neither great nor horrible. Yes, the theaters along the street do give it a Broadway-like feel at night. The sidewalks are wide, and there are shops and restaurants along them, so not a...More

Average street. Just like any other big metro city. Has it all like anywhere else. I did not hate it, I did not love it. Just simply average. Would not go out of my way to see it, but if you end up here, keep...More

We stayed at the Novotel Hotel which was located on this very busy, wide, one-way street. On our first visit to the hotel our room faced out onto the street and even though we were on one of the higher floors the noise levels, particularly...More

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes
