El Ateneo Grand Splendid was a theatre that opened its doors in 1919 and had a seating capacity of 1,050, and staged a variety of performances, including appearances by the tango artists Carlos Gardel,Francisco Canaro, Roberto Firpo and Ignacio Corsini.

In February 2000, this former theatre was leased by Grupo Ilhsa. The building was renovated and converted into a huge book and music shop under the direction of the architect Fernando Manzone. He removed the cinema seating and in its place he installed book shelves. The 2,000 m² (21,000 ft²) El Ateneo Grand Splendid sells over 700,000 books a year and over a million people walk through its doors annually.

Entrance is of course free and you can also have a coffee in this magical and beautiful place.
