Tigre Club Municipal Museum, Tigre, near Buenos Aires
This sumptuous club, and later casino, was built in 1912 next to the famous and luxurious Tigre Hotel, which was demolished in 1940 after falling on hard times during the great depression.
The Tigre Club, opened in 1933 on the banks of the Lujan River, in Paseo Victorica, Tigre, near Buenos Aires, also declined because of a subsequent law prohibiting casinos so close to the city.
At first, the Club continued as a restaurant with live shows, and in 1979 it was declared a National Historic Monument. Following extensive restoration it was reborn as the Municipal Museum of Fine Art for the town of Tigre. The Tigre Club is often confused with the demolished Tigre Hotel.
