“Out of the way”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Usina del Arte is l in an out of the way location. The city uses it for special exhibitions and concerts. Worth the trip only if they have something you want to see/attend. Otherwise it is a bare concrete space.

“Great Use of an Old Building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

If around La Boca, Usina del Arte is a must for free concerts and changing art. Built as a housing for the Italian Argentine Electric Company, this Florentine Building is architecturally interesting and a worthwhile destination when in BA.

In the seedier hood of La Boca, is located this architectural and artistic jewel of a space! Great musical hall; galleries; public party/milonga spaces,et al, this refurbished, power/light factory, shines in this typical, residential area, in southern BA.

“World class guitar orchestra in concert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

We attended a concert of the Buenos Aires Guitar Orchestra at one of the Sunday Morning (11:30 AM) concerts. First class musicians in a wonderful, small concert hall perfectly suited to the music. Take a taxi!

“Beautiful building!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

This is a great visit. Perfect to do with children. The building is really nice, the story is interesting and the concert rooms are amazing (I was not lucky enough to see an spectacle but if you can do not hesitate!). The insatalation by Leandro Erlich is interesting, beautiful and very engaging. My daughter did not want to leave!
