Win a Night at the Home Hotel!

BAIN is excited to announce that there is yet another raffle prize up for grabs at our End of the Year Party this Wednesday, November 14 at Pur Sang in Recoleta.  For those that attend the event, you can now win a one night stay at the Home Hotel in Palermo Hollywood complete with a welcome cocktail of your choice!

The Home Hotel opened in December 2005 and is the product of the union of an Argentine woman and her British husband.  They designed and created a comfortable, fashionable space in Palermo that offers a luxury experience to all of its guests.  The 20-bedroom hotel focuses on natural light, spacious rooms and adds the funk of colorful French vintage wallpaper.  Their patio is a beautiful open space with a lovely pool and comfortable sitting area for those who want to enjoy a glass of wine in the open air.

Home may be intimate but it offers some big time treats such as a Spa offering ayurvedic treatments with organic products, a Resto-Bar offering breakfast, lunch and evening tapas with a carefully chosen wine list, signature cocktails, and a large range of frozen vodkas.  The bar overlooks the 300 square-meter garden with a heated pool and deck area for sunbathing.  Home is a hotel where you can escape from the city without ever having to leave it.

Contact to get your tickets to the End of Year Party today!  Each ticket allows you to enter the drawing for this and many other great prizes!

Indulge in Lucho’s Homemade Treats!

Lucho’s Homemade Treats was born from Luciano’s passion for cooking and his love for tasty treats.

Having lived in Spain, Canada and the US, Lucho acquired the taste for sweets and goodies that were nowhere to be found in Argentina. Thus, he began to concoct those delicious things he was so fond of and longed for so much right in his very own kitchen. Soon enough, friends became interested in getting a “piece of the pie,” so to speak.

Lucho’s first customers were the expats of Buenos Aires, craving all the good things they were nostalgic for.  Many Argentinians also embraced the new tastes, making Lucho’s Homemade Treats a “must have” item for parties, events, and social gatherings.

Lucho is always on the lookout for new ideas, ever searching for what can hit it off for expats and Argentinians alike. Lucho’s Homemade Treats are always made fresh to order and with choice ingredients.

Nothing is better than homemade—Indulge!

Lucho has generously donated a basket of goodies to the BAIN End of Year Party raffle!  For your chance to win this basket of treats, contact one of our Board Members or come to any BAIN event to purchase your End of Year Party Tickets!


Lucho’s Homemade Treats nació de la pasión de Luciano por la cocina y su amor por las cosas ricas.

Al haber vivido afuera, adoptó el gusto por varias delicias que no pudo encontrar en Argentina. Es así que decidió hacer él mismo todas esas cosas ricas que le gustaron y deseaba tanto volver a probar.

Al principio se focalizó en los extranjeros que viven en Buenos Aires, pensando que les encantaría la idea de poder conseguir todas las cosas ricas que extrañaban. No sólo tuvo razón, sino que descubrió que los argentinos adoptaron muy bien estos nuevos sabores, tanto que hoy en día son los mejores clientes de Lucho’s.

Probando recetas todo el tiempo, Lucho está siempre buscando nuevas ideas  e identificando cuáles pueden funcionar en Argentina.

Los productos de Luchos’s Homemade Treats son caseros, siempre frescos y están hechos con ingredientes de calidad. Nada mejor que lo hecho en casa.

Dale, date el gusto!

Looking for a Healthy Lifestyle? Call the Buenos Aires Life Centre!

Meet Jennifer Klueppel, owner of Buenos Aires Life Centre.  Jennifer wants to help you find centeredness.

Jennifer has lived in various cities throughout western Canada. This is her first time living outside of Canada and now she has been living in Buenos Aires for the last 3 years. She has traveled throughout South America, Europe, and North America.

Jennifer started the Buenos Aires Life Centre with Dina Samelis of Happy Sun Yoga. We wanted to create a community space of well being. We offer massage therapy, thai massage, reiki, yoga, pilates, and wholistic health counseling. She found it quite tricky to find work when she first arrived in Buenos Aires. Though she had always thought about starting my own business, moving to Buenos Aires made it seem like the perfect time to get started. After meeting with Dina they decided to join forces and combine a massage business with a yoga business.

We believe that everyone can get a healthy body, mind, soul and heart through balanced life choices. Follow a program of exercises and good nutrition that not only feeds your body but will manifest in a deeper level of well-being and allow you to grow more fully into your True Self.

We are happy to announce that the Buenos Aires Life Centre is now operating in Barrio Norte, French 2647, 5e.
