Fodor's Expert Review El Ateneo

Recoleta Books/Stationery

An imposing theater dating from 1919 provides a fabulous backdrop for this bookshop. The former foyer holds a small selection of CDs and DVDs; the orchestra seating area has art books and fiction (including some English works); specialist subjects are arrayed in the circle; and you pay at the box office. Argentine cookbooks, illustrated gaucho classics, and coffee-table tomes are some of the weighty souvenirs. There are similar offerings at the less dramatic store on Florida.
