New Businesses in Buenos Aires that you Should Know About


By | December 9, 2010 | 15 comments

During 2010 many new businesses opened up shop in Buenos Aires, some small, some will be huge within the next few months. Here’s our list of the new guys around town that you should check out!

BA Cast,
Expat Dan Karlin and Buenos Aires local Fernando Farias chat it up once a week on an entertaining Pod Cast about Buenos Aires life. Tasteful jokes about general living in BA, interesting guest speakers, tips and a “buena onda” or good vibe. All in all, definitely a cool listen.

New to the nightlife scene, PlooxBA boasts to play only the latest and new electro, hip hop and indie music every Friday night at the Red Room (side entrance of Hummer on Juan B Justo). After going to a few clubs in Buenos Aires, most complain of the same thing…hearing the same music. These guys are bringing you refreshment for your ears.

From the founder of Spanglish, Beerlingual strives for the same goals; to have fun and to meet new people. The night is based around a trivia game where teams compete, have some beers and a good time. Show up with friends or solo. It’s worth going just to hear some of the improvised answers!

Fresh Air
Buenos Aires Boot Camp,
is a great way to stay in shape with an English/Spanish speaking trainer. International mixed groups enjoy meeting in different areas of Buenos Aires and training outdoors. Individual classes are offered so track down their unlimited biweekly pass.

Bici Bike Sharing System
Finally, a bit of the “Green Movement” gets to Buenos Aires. Following two years of empty promises, the Buenos Aires government has made a strong push to get the rent-a-bike system in action! It is official: Bici Bike System is up and running as of December 1, 2010! A great business that we can all get behind.

FC BAFA, If you have any interest in playing soccer (futbol), these are the guys to talk with. With organized games every week, your level of talent, gender, nationality, whatever- it doesn’t matter. Everyone is there to have fun and play soccer. A good place to meet new people and make some new friends in Buenos Aires.


Buenos Aires Delivery,
A popular concept from college towns in the U.S., Buenos Aires Delivery allows you to order food from some of the best restaurants online. An easy-to-use web page allows you to select whichever type of food you seek and see what restaurants deliver to your neck of the woods in Buenos Aires. Oddly, these delivery orders are rumored to be faster than regular delivery! A very convenient business addition to BA.

Hot Sauces:

El Tejano has jumped at the opportunity to answer Buenos Aires’ call for help in the spicy department. This guy takes his sauce making seriously high quality ingredients, no preservatives, delivery to your home and a low cost. Impressive one man operation!

Also, rumor has it that these two jokers are making their rounds with a new hot sauce called La Boca Roja:

Top It,
Is all the rage when it comes to real-deal frozen yogurt. One of the few existing options right now in Buenos Aires (December 1, 2010), they supply a nice variety of regular and exotic toppings. We personally dig the melon/blueberry combo for a refreshing treat during the summer heat.

Pancho Villa Tortillas,
If Buenos Aires was guilty of anything, it would be a lack of variety when it comes to food. Luckily, this city seems to attract a nice blend of entrepreneurs that know how to remedy just that. Pancho Villa Tortillas now supplies the hungry with real corn tortillas and a few other traditional Mexican products for your home cooking needs!

KE Viva El Mundo
An interesting hostel has sprung up that also offers a low-cost asado option, one available to the general public, on the weekends!

SendLoveBA,, last but not least is SendLoveBA. A company that you should know about, though it’s probably more important that your friends and family abroad know about this one. SendloveBA sends care packages to people anywhere in Buenos Aires. Cupcakes, bagels, chicken soup, cookies…everything is homemade. Try to subtly send your family the link!

    Hey Landing Pad BA! The rumors are true! I am one of the jokesters out there selling La Boca Roja. We’re definitely jokesters, the videos on our site can attest to that, but we actually have a good hot sauce too! We spent a month on an organic farm in El Bolson where we developed the recipe. We will deliver it anywhere in the city. Just email us at We’ll have a real site dedicated to our hot sauce soon but for now enjoy where we cover aerosmith songs in our underwear and document our life with a video update every week.

    Thanks for the post WEBMASTER. We got excited when we saw it.

    Cinco Arriba,

    Send Love BA is the best idea ever. Madi, the owner, is probably the coolest girl in this entire city – nay – this entire conurbano. I’d like to thank her for bringing birthday cake into my life and to show my thanks I’m inviting her and all her friends to a free asado at my house this Sunday! Come one Come all!

    It appears that I need to tighten the grip on the comment system of this new site. Thank you for pointing that out Madi.

    As an expat, I find that among the things I miss the most, are spicy Mexican foods. Thanks for the info about these great companies…

    I wanted to let you know about a new web site that we’ve started here in Buenos Aires, with plans for world domination in the near term.

    It’s called Otro Servicio, and brings a much needed ratings system to the services trade in Argentina. You know how your friend’s cousin’s brother’s great aunt came to fix your bathroom and ripped a hole in the ceiling big enough to fit the entire selección argentina through? Well worry no more! Now you can rely instead on the collective opinion of thousands of people like you. It’s free and it’s easy.

    Check out this video of the tragi-comic tale of one famous couple’s plumbing-fuelled passion and subsequent demise. But who will she choose, her valiant prince or the exotic newcomer?
