This is the room where billiards used to be played, but today it is a much quieter meeting spot. The Café's owners decided to name this space after Eladia Blázquez, a great artist who was much loved and remembered by all "porteños". The room holds up to 45 people.

The Bodega

Description of the room

Since the 1920s the Quinquela Martin Room, better known as "La Bodega", has been host to rich cultural activities and was, in the words of Conrado Nalé Roxlo "the organized extension of the Café table where it originated; that deserves to be remembered as a very important chapter in our literary history". Quinquela Martin called it "el sótano" (the basement) and in some European countries it is called the "cellar". It is accessed via a narrow staircase with photoluminescent and anti-slip steps. The room can hold up to 80 people. It has two appropriately signalled exits, an emergency light system, fire extinguishers and a well stocked first-aid kit, emergency service, air conditioning and ventilation systems, as well as CCTV.
