    Pasaje Solar Restaurant in Antique Row San Telmo Buenos Aires

    The neighborhood of San Telmo in Buenos Aires, Argentina, is most known as the Antique District in the capital.   Cobblestone streets, pictureseque 19th century architecture, a state of the art Modern Art Museum, weekly flea market, incredible antique stores all combine to create a wonderful neighborhood for anyone, especiallly those looking to find the new Les Halles.
    The restaurant, Pasaje Solar (also an 8 room hotel built in the late 1880's) has excellent food, a great cellar and the friendliest staff I have ever seen!

One example of America’s love for the vintage is the iconic, sultry television show known as Mad Men. Set at an advertising agency in the 1960s, Mad Men displays beautiful vintage decor as well as sets a contrast to the cutthroat dealings that occur in the show.

    History And Characteristics Of The Art Deco Style

         Art Deco made its signature mark during the 1920s and early 1930s. The style occurred against the backdrop of the Roaring ‘20s in America and recovering Europe on the mend from World War One. It gained popularity once again in the 1960s and then again in the 1980s. The Art Deco style can be found in fashion, architecture, furniture, and art throughout the US and the world. Great examples of Art Deco buildings are New York’s Chrysler Building and Radio City Music Hall. The tropical Art Deco style can be seen in the Art Deco Historic District in Miami Beach, Florida.

Susan Weber, founder and director of the Bard Graduate Center in New York, says the style resonates on multiple levels.
