Cafe La Puerto Rico , down town Buenos Aires
Topic: Apartment Rent

Cafe La Puerto Rico opened its doors for the first time in 1887. Today is a notable bar-café, a protected historical café by the city's government and also listed in the Book Cafes de Buenos Aires, see photos below…..

 

 

 
« previous | next »
This book is tiled in Spanish as Cafes de Buenos Aires, Coffee Bars in Buenos Aries 
Puerto Rico, on Alsina Street ...... Modern or Classic, hip or traditional, shaggy or well staged, the option is as broad as one can imagine. This is a two century old tradition that started with the flows of European Immigrants. Those origin old continent marks can be traced in our cafes. For example, the great pleasure taken in small strong cups of espresso coffee is without a doubt Italian origin. While the Spanish input can be found in the variety of snack like appetizers known in the Peninsula as Tapas and in Buenos Aires as picada (literally meaning chopped, for it consists in small plates of cold cuts, cheese, veggies, etc) or tablita (because it was sually served in a wooden cutting board). As to the other influence, I think France is the place; for no other country in the planet worships cafes as a philosophical round table scenario as French and Argentines do. The combination of those influences together with the very sense of Argentines and portenos created a particular cafe culture that's typical of our capital city. Visitors from around the globe when visiting Buenos Aires usually delight themselves with great food, but the last place they think that might raise some eyebrows is a cafe, but it happens. After the perfect grilled Argentine steak, the most delicious pasta dish and superb ice cream, the culinary surprises brought by the argentine palate might seem covered. But you haven't tried Buenos Aires flavour until you enjoy an espresso and a tostado. The consistency and rich flavor beheld in the small cup complements perfectly crispy thin bread layers mixed with just a perfect slice of ham and cheese. Within its simplicity this true Argentine combo is a treat to the senses.

 Its black stone façade brought up by its pompous windows and lovely carpentry; behold the entrance to a timeless ambiance of tango, coffee, pastry and a lot more. A day like today back in 1887, in the Southern neighbourhood of Monserrat near the city's Cathedral, the quarter changed for good, once Don Gumersindo Cabedo opened La Puerto Rico, filling the air with the ever sweet smell of freshly grinned coffee. The café's name is in honour of the paradise like country of Puerto Rico, where the owner used to live before finally settling in Buenos Aires. Firstly located on Peru Street, but by 1925, La Puerto Rico moved to its actual location on Alsina 416 where we find it today. Just around the corner from the apartment we have to rent, on Defensa Street 251……….  Famous personalities of the local political scene such as Jose Ingenieros, Paul Groussac, Arturo Capdevilla, Jose Maria Monner Sanz and Rafael Obligado as well as artists such Willy Guzman, Alberto E. Lopez an outstanding photographer, Alberto Selvaggi watchmaker, architect Jose Maria Pena were among its frequent visitors. For many years, this café was the chosen spot for the National Buenos Aires School alumnae -the most important and sophisticated top notch college in the city.  This house of coffee, passion and tango is one of the three oldest houses in the city, and it has maintained original to present. It is a must for every visitor and local seeking to discover the original feel of Buenos Aires, its people and its traditions.  

 

Staying in Monserrat and San Telmo, a wonderful experience for the traveller who wants more…  Monserrat and San Telmo is the top hip location in the city without exuding the “made for the tourist” feel some other places in the region might have. Bohemian, Artistic, Cultural, Amazing San Telmo is an expression of the novel Buenos Aires. This is the all friendly area for travellers par excellence, the artists’ place, the city with a plus; that’s why locals and visitors alike love this place.  With a huge array of gourmet options mixed and matched with a broad variety of true local pubs, tango bars and cafes, Monserrat and San Telmo has what it takes. Just a stone throw away from any other major city site, San Telmo is indeed a perfect spot for the traveller who wants independence, freedom of movement at the time he or she wishes to capture the essence of “Portenos”, that’s what we are called.  And while some prefer the traditional hotel option during their stay, we know that those travellers who travel following the lemma “When in Rome, do what Romans do”, rather prefer to stay at their own place and enjoy Argentina as an Argentine. If that is your case, we have this apartment Fully Furnished for RENT on Defensa Street, but first take a look at the surrounding areas ...

 

 
Defensa Street and 251, Everything along Defensa Street, in-between the Alsina and Moreno Street, from the Saint Francis Church, the City Museum, the old Pharmacy on the corner and a great place to eat “asados”, our Barbeques….. And last but not least, the Building at Defensa 251 where we have apartments to Rent. For more information on Buenos Aires email: Email: admin@frassinetti.com Bob Frassinetti.

Cafe Society
Topic: Buenos Aires Historical

Cafe Society

Where Art meets Life.

Joan Osburn.

 

Coffee is a fleeting moment and a fragrance.
--Claudia Roden




It was a pleasant cafe, warm and clean and friendly, and I hung

up my old water-proof on the coat rack to dry and put my worn

and weathered felt hat on the rack above the bench and ordered

a cafe au lait. The waiter brought it and I took out a notebook

from the pocket of the coat and a pencil and started to write.

--Ernest Hemingway



Coffee falls into the stomach...ideas begin to move, things remembered
arrive at full gallop... the shafts of wit start up like sharp-shooters,
similies arise, the paper is covered with ink... - Honore de Balzac

 

 

Cafes are an intrinsic part of every day life in Buenos Aires. Portenos -as
the people who live in this portside city is known as- feel cafes are almost
like an extension of their home, study or work environment. Probably some of
the best poems, songs, paintings, business plans, romances and break-ups have
had a Buenos Aires Cafe as their main stage.

Modern or Classic, hip or traditional, shaggy or well staged, the option is as broad as one can imagine.

This is a two century old tradition that started with the flows of European Immigrants. Those origin old continent marks can be traced in our cafes. For example, the great pleasure taken in small strong cups of espresso coffee is without a doubt Italian origin. While the Spanish input can be found in the variety of snack like appetizers known in the Peninsula as Tapas and in Buenos Aires as picada (literally meaning chopped, for it consists in small plates of cold cuts, cheese, veggies, etc) or tablita (because it was sually served in a wooden cutting board). As to the other influence, I
think France is the place; for no other country in the planet worships cafes as a philosophical round table scenario as French and Argentines do.

The combination of those influences together with the very sense of Argentines and portenos created a particular cafe culture that's typical of our capital city.

Visitors from around the globe when visiting Buenos Aires usually delight themselves with great food, but the last place they think that might raise some eyebrows is a cafe, but it happens.

The consistency and rich flavor beheld in the small cup complements perfectly crispy thin bread layers mixed with just a perfect slice of ham and cheese. Within its simplicity this true Argentine combo is a treat to the senses.



Each quarter in the city has its own trademark cafe, some even more than one. Each features a unique and personal style, the conjunction of ambiance and public, those steady customers that regularly come, sit on the same table and have become part of the cafe's spirit. And such is the love and care Argentines have for those coffee houses that the government has come with a cultural patrimony project that preserves those historical and cultural icon places under the concept of Notable Cafes. There are 53 in the city of Buenos Aires, but the list broadens constantly. Cafe Tortoni, La
Giralda, 36 Billiards, La Biela, La Ideal and Bar El Britanico, are just some...................

Buenos Aires has become home & all of South America as my back yard
Topic: Bob Frassinetti
Multiculturalism: My own Point of View: Buenos Aires has become home, and all of South America as my back yard.  I’m a true multi-cultural man. I was born in Argentina a long time ago now. My British Mom and my Italian-Argentine Dad had me and my brother traveling around the world, discovering amazing fantasy lands such as British Guyana and other Caribbean locations at a young age. After living only a couple of years in my native Argentina I have lived around the world, I’m Argentine by heart and British at the same time. If I had to choose I would breakfast in London, lunch at the Guyana and Dinner in Buenos Aires… May be that explains a lot of me… I also lived for many years in England. My teen years and a bit more I spent them at Mount St. Mary’s College in Spinkhill, a small town near Sheffield in the English Midlands. This Jesuit boarding school was my home; my classmates were my family and some of the finest memories date from those years… I also travelled in the Bahamas, and back in those days one of my friends’ had a small mansion by the sea side, where I spent several summers there, and once a group of 4 chaps, young, loud, and amazingly famous stayed there while touring and making a movie called, “Help” … their names were John, Paul, Ringo and George. Yes, The Beatles, so I also got to know them. It was the 70s and England was bursting with enthusiasm, creativity and wittiness. I’m happy to know I witnessed those amazing times. I have no doubt about the fact that those early experiences in my life have shaped my mind, my soul and my interests, that today I see taking shape and body in the broad cultural project I develop passionately every day.  As Latin as I am, thanks to my Pop’s influence, I feel deeply passionate about art, style, culture… As a Brit as I have come to be, I feel English is my mother tongue, the borderless language that allows us individuals to transcend geographical borders and limits, the language of my thoughts and my chats… Thanks to my lifetime experiences I’ve become who I am, and along the way many of my projects, those that start in one’s mind and come to take shape along the road of life, began to be real and my input in this modern global world.  

I’m a proud citizen of the world, who has chosen Buenos Aires to become home, and all of South America as my back yard.

After a day or 2 here and around these places we will carry on travelling towards Chile, going via Rosario, Cordoba and then Mendoza, seeing the Pampas, the Andes Mountains visiting Wine Bodegas, wonderful unique sights, searching town by town for Arts and Antiques, for those especially interested in old tractors steam engines we will also be hunting them, likewise for those insulators collectors, and visiting Museum and Art Galleries on all mayor stops, this adventure is not only about “hitting the road, jack” but also looking out to a parts of the world, that are rapidly changing and it might be one of the last times do see and document it before “man and the weather” change it for ever…. See sights and sounds like maybe have been the same for hundreds of years, remote villages, high up in the mountains or across in Chile.

So we will be also crossing over to Santiago de Chile, the Pacific Ocean, Valparaiso,  and then down south to the Big Island of Chiloe, this mystical and magic island, with hundreds of churches and strange wooded buildings over the sea, lighthouses and many islands to visit, and then back  crossing over gain the Andes mountains, back across to Argentina, Via Esquel, Route 40, Ruta 40, seeing and travelling on trains, crossing lakes and bays, on paved and unpaved roads, hunting antique tractors, visiting lighthouses and museum, buying art and antiques and sleeping in small towns and villages some times in top notch boutique hotels other time in down and out places… Bariloche and Puerto Blest, for those by now tired out can catch a flight back to Buenos Aires, then home, or for those willing to spend Christmas and New Year in this part of wild South American and in style can carry on with me ……..  Eating and tasting local foods and drinks, as well as wines … the idea is to have a total adventure in places I have already travelled to and others that I’m not familiar with. All this, for an adventure, that could well turn out to be  ……… a drive of a life time.

We would be travelling in a 4 wheel drive vehicle, 4WD this is a good on and off road vehicle, with all the equipment necessary also for camping out a night or 2 on the road, when its nice to ….. so far the idea is still being worked on, so its subject to some change, all I wanted to check out with this auction is if there are any possible candidates who would be willing to accompany me…… at the same time we would be documenting the trip for deferent purposes… I have worked out some kind of cost for the trip, its based on a daily rate per person, this doesn’t include any extra expenses but only the use of the vehicle and me driving it (included all running costs of the vehicle, me, there the 24 hours helping, couching and providing information on the sights we will see ) and insurance, it would be US $190 per person per day of adventure, minimum days 21, calculated on a base of 3 passengers and if all seats are occupied and sold here at auction, today or in future run up auctions. Great trip for a family of 3, friends, or adventurers who never got the chance to be one…… and why not just for those lovers of art and antiques who want to experience pure fun a dn the sport of hunting down items, village by village town by town ….. All other expenses; from trip down, to Buenos Aires and back home, from food lodging here and on the road and all personal expenses all the way to medical costs if any, all , and each expense for each person, are apart, are to be paid by each of the individuals doing the trip, and you can do this threw your local travel agent or any way you feel fit in doing it. There are some risks involved so its best only to do trip if you are in good health and to let me know of anything before hand.

Some information on myself, Lonely Planet has me listed as a “friendly and bohemian art dealer guide” on page 49 of its latest edition of Lonely Planet Guide for the city of Buenos Aires. This guide was written by Sandra Bao, and is just out, by the way, a great in view to our City. I'm also known on Internet online magazines and forums where I publish my insiders’ articles and inputs for travellers & dealers on art to antiques dealers, just Google my name! Or Yahoo! I’m a qualified eBay seller with great feedback! And I have been on line on eBay since 1998. That goes back a long way for Internet users.

I also sell Books on Route 40, Argentina. You can alos buy books and Route Guides like this one The Magic of Route 40 by Federico B. Kirbus.

Apartment Rent in down town Buenos Aires Argentina
Topic: San Telmo
Staying in Monserrat and San Telmo, a wonderful experience for the traveler who wants more…  Monserrat and San Telmo is the top hip location in the city without exuding the “made for the tourist” feel some other places in the region might have. Bohemian, Artistic, Cultural, Amazing San Telmo is an expression of the novel Buenos Aires. This is the all friendly area for travelers par excellence, the artists’ place, the city with a plus; that’s why locals and visitors alike love this place.  With a huge array of gourmet options mixed and matched with a broad variety of true local pubs, tango bars and cafes, Monserrat and San Telmo has what it takes. Just a stone throw away from any other major city site, San Telmo is indeed a perfect spot for the traveler who wants independence, freedom of movement at the time he or she wishes to capture the essence of “Portenos”, that’s what we are called.  And while some prefer the traditional hotel option during their stay, we know that those travelers who travel following the lemma “When in Rome, do what Romans do”, rather prefer to stay at their own place and enjoy Argentina as an Argentine. If that is your case, we have this apartment Fully Furnished for RENT on Defensa Street,  but first take alook at the surrounding areas ...
