This building, now a concert hall, served for many years as a playland for tourists who came to have food and drink served while comfortably watching and gambling on jai alai games.
Wikipedia (visit link
) further informs us:
"El Foro is currently a 3,000-seat venue for concerts in the city of Tijuana. A few years ago, this venue was used in Tijuana as a fronton/jai alai venue. In 2002 was closed by the local government, and was totally reconstructed. It was reopened in 2003. Since then, artists like Julieta Venegas, Facundo Cabral, Luis Miguel and Cafe Tacvba had perform here."
