If you arrive mid-week in Buenos Aires, Kandi will get the blood flowing. Imagine a duplex apartment with the bedroom overlooking the living area, make it about 20 times bigger, pimp it out with decadent lighting, play Victoria’s Secret catwalk videos on the cinema screen, add in two well-manned bars downstairs, fill the place with a horde of young, beautiful porteñas and a few handsome Argentine men, and hire a DJ to get the proceedings moving.
rnFood is an option at this Las Canitas candy shop, but don’t expect an excellent dining experience: the music is far too loud for a civilized supper, and the sushi is average at best. Few will care, however – because after all, it’s all about the look. Kandi is as close to a nightclub as you will get without it being a nightclub: a pleasant medium/fast-paced bar for the hard-hitting, hip traveller.
