In turn, all the entertainment activities can be accompanied by the various gastronomic options: Huff invites you to discover the pleasure of craftsmanship with a wide variety of beers at La París; the incredible terrace of Tucson is the ideal place to taste the best American food with incredible views of the slopes; and La Isla de Battuta that runs in the center of the track with a unique view, surrounded by lagoons.

About the Hippodrome of Palermo

The Palermo Hippodrome is an emblematic 56-hectare estate that was inaugurated on May 7, 1876 as the first formal equestrian center in Argentina. Today it has become an icon of Buenos Aires culture with 146 years of history, and was declared an architectural heritage of the City. It is part of the Palermo tourist circuit together with El Rosedal, La Rural, the Japanese Garden, the Botanical Garden and the Planetarium.

The venue is currently made up of four well-known grandstands: Paddock, Official, Special and New. The Official Tribune is the most outstanding, and was declared a Historical Heritage of the City for its impressive architecture and excellent location. In addition, between the Official and the Paddock, you can see the imposing clock that was manufactured in Tangerhütte (Germany) especially for the Palermo Hippodrome and is over 100 years old.

Another iconic space of the Hippodrome is the Round of Exhibition, there the horses are shown to the public before each race. The circle surrounds the tunnel of the jockeys who, after preparing to run in the changing rooms and putting on their jackets, come out of the tunnel and mount the horses to go out on the track.
