Great concert venue in the heart of Buenos Aires. It's all seated, but the atmosphere and acoustics are great. Apparently the venue has seen many famous bands, both local and international grace it's stage. There's also a Starbucks next door with free wifi (a real bonus in BA).

Many renown artists' concerts and first class shows are held in its premises. Tickets can be purchased online through different retailers or bought at the ticket booth situated at the entrance. Just beware of seats chosen as some of them may provide partial or limited views of the stage.

Staying in San Nicolas

Neighbourhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theatre lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
