The area
Address
Neighbourhood: San Nicolás
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.

At 83 years of age, the theatre is in pretty good shape, with very comfortable seats, fairly good leg room and good view angles (at least from the first balcony). It’s not opulent nor very decorative inside, but the acoustics were good and enjoyed the concert.

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).

We caught a last minute show for Les Luthiers here. The theater is pretty modrn. It has huge staricases on both sides of it. Ot's huge, so make sure you pay attention where you buy your ticket. We got on the 2nd row of the 1st floor (which is actually the 2nd floor) and those were great seats. I must add.... amazing prices. However, I'm pretty sure that from the last seats you can barely see the stage. Sound was amazing as well. It has elevators for universal access but inside the theater lots of steps, so make sure to check that if needed. If you're in town for a visiti check what's playing in Gran Rex. We had a great time and really enjoyed the atmosphere.

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.

If you're lucky enough to be in Buenos Aires when something you'd like to see is showing in the Gran Rex, don't miss the chance to see this venue. When it was built, it was the largest movie theater in Latin America. It's now used mostly for stage shows and concerts. We saw Gilberto Gil there once and it was really a special treat. Chances are, you can get good seats for a lot less than what you'd pay in the U.S.
