What does it mean to be among the exclusive group of spectators at the Argentine Open Polo finals? Let us assure you, it means a lot. This is the star-studded culmination of the most important polo tournament on the planet, and it’s held in the tantalising capital of the premier polo-playing country. Argentina has not only dominated the sport for the past century, but it’s a country that knows how to do polo right – the old world luxury way.
More Than Just A Polo Match
A heady mix of glamour, glitz and fiercely competitive sport, this is a must for anyone seeking a socially significant sporting event. A crowd of over 15,000 well-heeled locals, celebrities and international jet setters attend the finals at the Campo de Polo in Buenos Aires’ affluent Palermo district.
With sets from some of the world’s leading DJs (the creamfields crew always attend) it’s one of the best international party experiences we’ve come across.
The Capital’s Main Attractions
With a week in the city you can take in the Polo finals and simultaneously enjoy the urban chic of Buenos Aires, not to mention the attractions of the surrounding region. Buenos Aires – easily on our top ten list for hip world cities – consists of an eclectic collection of neighbourhoods, each with its own unique charm. Stroll the mansion-lined avenues of Recoleta, shop in the funky boutiques of Palermo Viejo or visit artists’ studios in San Telmo.
Spending your nights in the effortlessly cool Hotel Faena you’ll experience the height of contemporary style. Located just a stone’s throw from San Telmo, the city’s oldest neighbourhood famous for its classical architecture, you’ll be steps away from antique shops and tango bars.
