The Ateneo Grand Splendid

Even for Buenos Aires, the Ateneo Grand Splendid is a big name for a business. From the looks of it, this bookstore is both grand AND splendid! Yes, it was built as a theater, in 1919. The conversion to a bookstore in 2000 was done with care to preserve the grandeur of the original theater. See more pictures at 91 Days. Link -Thanks, Juergen!

I LOVE this place! I spent a summer in Buenos Aires and I must have gone at least once a week just to hang out. And if I recall correctly, I think Recoleta is really close, so it's a nice place for a break after roaming one of the most gorgeous cemetaries on the continent :)
