Fascinating street art, a stunning book shop and a wealth of restaurants, bars and clubs are just some of our readers’ highlights from the Argentinian capital
There are stunning bookshops in the world and then there is El Ateneo Grand Splendid. Once a theatre and cinema, it opened in 1919 and became a bookshop 81 years later. Inside El Ateneo clients are respectfully quiet, just like an audience right before the start of a show. Sit in the cafe, order a cafecito, leaf through a Buenos Aires city guide and enjoy the majestic uniqueness of this book haven!
