In need of reading
Why locals love it
There's probably nothing better than wandering around a bookshop and Walrus stocks English speaking second hand books so if you're not quite ready for Spanish speaking books (like me) then this is a good place to find a decent read.
Why you should visit it
Walrus is not just a bookshop but also hosts many writing classes if you're looking to throw in a bit of learning when visiting Buenos Aires. The classes I would highly recommend are the creative writing classes and 'poetry slams'... Yes, all you budding poets out there will have a place in Buenos Aires to show off your hidden talent ;)
Classes are great in the 'winter months' as you're tucked away in a cosy and retro room in Palermo, feeling very creative and inspired. Bliss.
