Confitería El Molino

Address: Rivadavia 1800 – Monserrat

This building, which opened in 1915, is now out of business, even though it will always be “Confiteria El Molino” for porteños. It was one of the “Bares Notables” (literally “remarkable bars”, were considered so by law because of their close relation to the local culture), a symbol of our city’s life, as a big part of our History originated in it. Being opposite to the National Congress, it was always a luxury neighbor; now it is up to your imagination to picture the gatherings that took place there and the rules and decisions made between those walls.
It is a dazzling Art Nouveau piece of architecture, with some outstanding pieces, like stained glass windows, bronze capitals, collector’s lighting objects, golden Venetian glass mosaic and the entrance marquises, which, even being disregarded, still keep their beauty. The most notorious symbol is the mill on top of the building, whose two arms appear as if they could start spinning at any moment…
Everybody longs for its reopening so our History may be built around it.
