What people are saying:

A very beautiful bookstore, it is also a cultural landmark of the city. It feels that the interior environment of the bookstore is completely built according to the model of a theater. There are so many books in it, which is very good.

Additional Information


Originally a well-established theatre, El Ateneo Bookstore was founded in 1919 and provided a variety of entertainment services for Buenos Aires, including opera and film shows. In the 1970s, it was gradually abandoned due to years of disrepair. Later, the abandoned theater was turned into a bookstore. The original ground floor of the theater sells children's books and toys, the second floor sells other books, and the third floor sells records and DVDs. The bookstore also retains some seats on the fourth floor, where any reader can read and overlook the entire book store.
