Each commercial space has its own purpose. At a restaurant, we eat food. At a bar, we drink beer. At a cafe, we take a coffee. We rarely drink beer at cafes and we do not ask for coffee at bars. As Google Map shows, cafes are not listed when we search for bars. Similarly, bars do not appear when cafes are searched for.
However, many commercial spaces in Buenos Aires, Argentina serve more than one purpose. For instance, Hobbs Palermo is a restaurant. However I ordered a bottle of alcoholic beverage late night and, at a day time, I saw a person who drank only a bottle of Coca Cola. It is a restaurant, bar, and cafe.
Bar El Federal (or the Federal Bar) is even called as cafe bar. Located in the old downtown of Buenos Aires, it is a dusty, raw, and authentic pub with wooden interiors and antique bottles. However, some people eat sandwich, take a coffee, and read books under dim light. Inside this space, some drink beers and others read books.
We can drink wine or eat pizza at Starbucks. Alternatively, we can only drink coffee or beer at Michelin two star restaurants. If we overcome the thought that one space should be used only for a single purpose, we could use the same space more creatively.
