On Plaza del Carmen, right in front of our hotel, one building is the centre of attention. Initially built by Daniel Zavala in 1898 with the purpose of holding a fronton, in 1906 it was given a new cultural use as well as its sporting one: the Central Kursaal was created, a café-chantant, a Madrid-style music hall where illustrious people such as the dramatist and novelist Ramón del Valle-Inclán frequently went to enjoy different shows with the most famous artists of the time.
Also during that time, in the early 20th century, another building of a similar kind was built on Plaza del Carmen on the land where an old bazaar used to be. Salón Chantecler became a very successful entertainment spot during that time with performances by famous cabaret artists such as ‘La Chelito’, with the “Sold Out’ sign being hung outside every day.
