Best for Kids in Buenos Aires

, 2 Options Found

After an exhaustive and careful restoration of this beautiful 1919 theater, the biggest bookstore in Latin America opened in what used to be the old Grand Splendid cinema. Without altering the old structure—twinned with the Opera de Paris theatre—it still has its original features and magnificent friezes, like the one on the spectacular dome. There is now a cafeteria in place of the stage, where you can read books taken from the bookshelves. There are also reading places on the corners of the main floor and in the old balconies on the first floor, furnished with tables and comfortable armchairs, computers for searching or online purchasing and an area dedicated to children, 'El Ateneo Junior', with interactive games and storytelling. There is also a small music stage, CDs and DVDs for sale, art exhibitions on the third floor and facilities for watching DVDs.

A city filled with book worms, where do locals go to browse through shelves of novels, history, poetry, and art books? Unlike the massive bookstores throughout the city, Libros del Pasaje offers a more cozy, boutique feel where intellectuals spend hours perusing the vast collections and lounging on comfortable chairs. Even for those who struggle reading books in Spanish, Libros del Pasaje has a small selection of English books as well. Bring your laptop and take advantage of the free WiFi, sitting for hours in the covered patio. Order a coffee and a sandwich and you'll never want to leave.
