Esquina Carlos Gardel Tours

Tango is the word on everyone’s lips when visiting Buenos Aires. It was here where the sultry dance was born and survived through a period of outlaw, and the passionate heart of the Argentine arts scene that emanates out from San Telmo. Though it isn’t in the San Telmo neighborhood, Esquina Carlos Gardel is regarded as one of the city’s best tango shows, and is named for the singer, Carlos Gardel, who brought the tango to fame. More than just honoring him by name, however, the show takes place in the very building where Gardel would croon his tango hits throughout the 1920s. From humble beginnings in this Abasto neighborhood, Gardel would rise to international fame for his passionate, mournful songs—many of which are performed here today as part of this elegant show. Even though the theater seats 410 people there isn’t a bad seat in the house, where after a dinner that’s paired with wine, you’re treated to performances by 25 different dancers, musicians, and singers. It’s a moody evening full of romance and lust, of talent, history, and desire, and a great way to spend a night on the town in the city where tango was born.

Practical Info

Transportation to and from the theater is included with the price of a ticket. Dinner begins at 8:30pm, and the show runs from 10:30pm-midnight. Dress code is formal and semi-formal.
 
Did You Know? In 1915, Che Guevara’s father shot Carlos Gardel in the chest after a late-night bar room brawl. The bullet remained lodged in his left lung for the rest of his career as a singer.
