cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious
apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect
combination of old and new. The river provides a
quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the

Is it open on New Year's Eve? And if yes, how to make a reservation ahead of time. Is there any other way than calling.
