The outdoor pool is one of BA’s prime see-and-beseen spots.A sexy vibe imbues the sultry Library Lounge and El Cabaret, which host nightly tango performances.
Bursting with flavor and flowing with Argentina’s famous red wines, Faena Hotel Buenos Aires is an epicurean destination ranging from an authentic estancia-style asado barbecue in El Mercado to Bistro Sur’s haute cuisine.
