What To Expect

A favorite haunt of the late tango singer Carlos Gardel, this venue makes an appropriate place for you to begin learning about the history and culture of the tango from your expert guide, also a seasoned tango dancer. Enjoy a drink on the house and put yourself in the shoes of the generations of dedicated Argentinian tango dancers, or milongueros.
Learn about Buenos Aires' historic San Telmo neighborhood, where immigrants invented tango during the 1850s. The colorful buildings and eclectic architecture were the backdrop for the choreography of claps, steps and stomps that make up this expressive dance.
