It has everything a club must have, in a tall building. Amazing shows, places to read, swimming pool... and it´s very accessible to handicaped. It´s some blocks from a subway station surrounded by luch places, and shops.

It is an interesting place where people go for sports (basketball, footbal, swimming, among others) with a nice garden to stay and a theater to watch contemporary plays and music.
