El Ateneo Bookstore is housed in a famous Buenos Aires theater that was built in 1919. Many of the most famous Tango acts performed here before it was converted to one of the first movie houses in Buenos Aires with sound. It is located on Ave. de Santa Fe in the Recoleta district. It is a very beautiful part of town.
