Tetro Colon is an exquisite theatre gracing the widest avenue in the world, la Avenida 9 de Julio. The interior is stunning and is one of the oldest European theatres in South America. Splash out on a ticket for an opera, ballet or play or alternatively take a guided tour. The 5 peso standing only tickets are a bargain, if not a little straining on the legs, especially though a three act opera. Enquire at the box office.
The Teatro Colon is situated on the Avenida 9 de Julio, just past the Obelisk.

A genuine art deco masterpiece of a bar. In my 2 years living and working in Buenos Aires, I've yet to find a better looking place to sip a gin and tonic. Expensive by Argentine standards (around £4-6 a drink) it's well worth it once in a while.
Plaza San Martin (at the end of Florida).
