There are two Buenos Aires: one is the traditional, with the tango nights and classical concerts at The Teatro Colón. Another is the home to some of the best and trendiest restaurants, bars and shops. Since the economic crisis that brought down Argentina in the late 20th century, Buenos Aires just gets better and better. New places to eat, shop and dance open all the time, as if to help porteños (as Buenos Aires' inhabitants are called) to forget the problems the country still faces.
