After the Revolution Frank Sanborns leases and renovates the Casa de los Azulejos (House of Tiles), historic building that had fallen into disrepair, making it a luxurious restaurant, tea room, sodas, gift shop, pharmacy and confectionery. The reopening in 1920 was a success, and many personalities of the political, social and cultural life of the country attended the event.
