The box was made of wood, which was accessed by a small staircase. It was the place where the great ensembles of the Guardia Vieja and the Guardia Nueva stood out.

The atmosphere inside the coffee was flooded by cigarette smoke and cigars , added to the full range of sounds coming from the attendees and cries of the waiters, when ordering orders.
