We saw a concert of a great local orchestra. It was amazing and the place is very interesting. Make sure you find out what is going on at the moment before going.

I enjoyed a performance of La Mega Big Band at Usina del Arte in early November of 2015. What a unique performance space! A former factory now has new life as a cultural events center. In addition to the concert hall area, there was an art exhibition taking place on a different level. An added feature is a cafe area... More

The government pumped a lot of money into this old factory space, and it turned out beautifully. Numerous performance spaces with fab acoustics.

I went there two times. The first time I went for an art expo and while I was there I took the tour that tells you the history of the place and what was restored. I loved it so much that this year when I was visiting again, this time with my husband, we went again and I took the... More

We went for one of the free events. The place is a nicely transformed factory. They did a nice job in building a hall with excellent acoustics and maintaining at the same time some idea of the building historical aspects. Nothing really spectacular however. I t seems there was a photo exhibition when we were there but we had no... More

Ups. The place is well restored and has potential.- Downs. The neighborhood is not inviting, some security issues maybe. The place is huge but there were just one exhibition

We visited during the Tango festival. Great auditorium and rooms to provide great concerts. The price of admission is typically free, but do not go at night. Best to only visit during the day as it is a tough party of town at night.

Staying in La Boca

Neighborhood Profile
La Boca
A neighborhood defined by its immigrant roots, La Boca still maintains this past alive in its streets today. Due to its proximity to the river, the neighborhood became the preferred settling area for immigrants of a wide variety of origins, who ended up living together in the conventillos. Thus, these houses became a melting pot of different cultures and traditions that birthed creations like tango and lunfardo. Nowadays, this legacy can be seen and felt on Caminito Street, which welcomes visitors with colorful facades, cobblestones, and street artists showcasing their skills. Just like its neighbor San Telmo, La Boca is one of the prime destinations to experience the traditions and customs that originated from the city’s immigrant past and which have shaped its distinct identity.
