Hermosa experiencia, una muy completa librería emplazada en un precioso teatro porteño. Sin duda es una visita para repetirla varias veces, además libros a buenos precios y de variedad amplísima.
Beautiful experience, a very complete book shop located inside a Porteño theatre. It's a visit to be repeated several times with no doubt, besides books are at good prices in a wide variety.

Beautiful and worth a look around even of you're not looking to buy. In a main area and easy enough to get or walk to, it has a cafe on the old stage if you want to spend a bit more time as well. One of the coolest bookstores anywhere for sure!

One of the highlights during our visit to Buenos Aires was this beautiful and huge bookshop in this very old theatre. We also had a very nice lunch in the restaurant located on the stage. The food was very good and the service very friendly and diligent. They also offer great cakes and sweets!

When you are talking about place for bying books, your mind goes to a bookstore.
But when you are talkinng about a bookstore you can not imagine The El Ateneo Grand Splendid. There are too many different titles and kinds of books, CDs, DVDs. But the special one is that this building,at the beginning was a theater that renovated to a bookstore with 4 levels.The stage operates as a cafeteria-patisserie and you can also have a snack.
It ia a nice experience.
