100-Year-Old Theatre Turned Into Stunning Bookstore

El Ateneo Grand Splendid is the building situated at 1860 Santa Fe Avenue in Barrio Norte, Buenos Aires, Argentina. It was designed by the architects Peró and Torres Armengol for the empresario Max Glücksmann (1875-1946), and opened as a theatre called Teatro Gran Splendid in May 1919. In the late twenties the theatre was converted into a cinema. Eventually, in 2000, the building was renovated and converted into bookstore, which currently welcomes over one million visitors each year. El Ateneo Grand Splendid became the flagship store of current building owner, Grupo Ilhsa. The Guardian, a prominent British periodical, named El Ateneo Grand Splendid second in its 2008 list of the world’s ten best bookshops. Read more on Wikipedia.
