Tango Shows

Tango is the national dance of Argentina, so if you haven’t already mastered your tango moves, the Argentinian locals are the best to learn from. Milongas is a specific type of tango dance and is the best kind to watch. Milongas typically happen in the afternoon or very late in the evening. Tango enthusiasts can dance into the early hours with Milongas sometimes going on until 6am. Be wary of the “tango eyes”- locals interpret a brief moment of eye contact as a signal to bring you into the dance. They don’t need much encouragement to whisk you off into the centre of the floor!  

There are many great tango spots in Buenos Aires. For the most traditional Milongas, head to Cachirulo, where you can get a taste of how a formal Milongas operates.

For a more historical experience, Confitería Ideal is a great pick. Be blown away by the fabulous architecture as well as the dancing. The name Confitería means pastry shop and that is exactly where the Milongas is held. It’s a famous pastry place located in the downtown area of Buenos Aires.

San Telmo also has some wonderful tango offerings. Maldita Milonga has live music and an electric atmosphere. Go on a Wednesday and hear the Orchestra play. Be sure to make reservations if you’d like a table, as this is a popular hangout spot. If you fancy an outdoor dance, go to La Milonga del Indio on a Sunday. With the laid back environment, it’s the perfect place to dance in the night.
