Have time during the day to get out and enjoy lunch with friends? We’d love to have you join us at our Monthly Luncheons. Luncheons are a great way to get together with friends and meet new members while enjoying great Buenos Aires restaurants. Information is sent to members announcing the locale, menu options and approximate pricing. Non-members are also welcome. Luncheons are payable on-site.

Have you tried a great restaurant lately that you think others would enjoy? Please send us a note. We are always looking for new suggestions!

We are excited for you to join us! For more information on the next Monthly Luncheon, see the Calendar.

BAIN Downtown Membership Meetings are held on the last Friday of every month. A casual reception allows members and guests time to “mix & mingle” over a drink and picada. The monthly meetings are the perfect opportunity to make announcements about upcoming events, introduce new members, and discuss relevant topics for new and existing members.
For more information about the next Monthly Meeting, please check the Calendar or contact bain.downtown@gmail.com.

W&T stock imageArgentina has hundreds of great wines to enjoy.  Why not enjoy them with other BAIN members at the monthly Wine and Tapas evening? These events are generously hosted by current members who open their home to an evening of delicious wine, food, and conversation. Somewhat like the typical American potluck, attendees bring a beverage and finger food to share while enjoying the chance to socialize with other members. Check the Calendar for the next monthly Wine and Tapas evening, we look forward to seeing you there!
