The junction of San Juan and Boedo streets is a historical corner of Buenos Aires steeped in local tradition. The bar that was built on this site in 1927 became a symbol of the urban culture of the Forties, hosting many of the popular musicians who turned tango into the foremost artistic expression of Buenos Aires. Every day hundreds of tourists visit this unique and charming site , which is protected as a building of historical importance. It was essential to save it, and to bring back the magic of tango beat. The corner of San Juan and Boedo represents the heart of the arrabal. It is a fitting place where to recreate the atmosphere of the days of cobbled streets and malevos while, at the same time, incorporating modern facilities and comfort. The challenge of the project, which was directed by architect Carlos Liuzzi, was to restore the building and recreate it as a meeting place and center of cultural interest, preserving the original frontage and using the construction designs of the time when it was first built. The re-opening marks the launch of an establishment fitted to the highest standards required in a modern city. Intimately linked to local tradition and culture, “The Corner” is a place dedicated not only to the people of Buenos Aires but also to all music lovers.
