Location Information

Jackson 865, Parque Rodó. Montevideo- Uruguay

We are located in Parque Rodó, one of the most characteristics areas of the city and a really privileged zone, a few minutes from the center of the city and just next to the River Plate coast. There upon the boulevard, you can find the Ramirez Beach, The Summer Theater, and the former Parque Hotel, which is now a base building of the Mercosur.
Within the Park there is an artificial lake, a children play area, an amusement park, and several places to eat. Besides you can also find the photo-gallery "a cielo abierto", coordinated by the Montevideo´s photography center (Centro de Fotografía de Montevideo) which is intended exclusively to the exhibition of photographs.

Inside the neighborhood you can find different points of interest, such as the Visual Arts National Museum, a skating rink, the Universities of Architecture, Economy and Engineering; as well as a lively night scene, full of pubs and restaurants.
