I'm headed to Buenos Aires in May and I'd like to find some good venues to get my dance on! I'd like to go to places with good drinks, maybe food, and definitely good live music. My friends and I are in our 20s and 30s. What would be some good places for us to tango? Thanks in advance!
La Catedral (Sarmiento 4006) is a nice place for young people to get into Tango music. It's pure, not fancy or touristy, you'll find a great mixture of locals and tourists interested in tango music.
It is a unique place, you can also take tango lessons there. :)
I went to one tango spot in BA and it was great! It's called El Boliche de Roberto. Most folks would probably be really put off by the exterior because it looks shady on the outside, and it's still divey on the inside, but it's so much fun and carefree! There are lots of fancy spots in BA, but this is not one of them. There's wine flowing and some of the best live tango music I heard during my entire trip there. The crowd is on the younger side, mostly 20s, so this could be a good place for your group. Hope you all have fun!
Hi Rhonda. I recommend you La viruta.
Its a place where locals go. Good young and old dancers.
Once in Buenos Aires you have to ask for "milongas", this is the name for that kind of places.
Hello Rhonda! I have another idea/option for you!! You can visit Tango Porteño located at Cerrito 570, Buenos Aires, Argentina. My niece highly recommended the show and the tango lessons. The show starts every night at 8:00 p.m.; however, prior to the show (at 7:00 p.m.) you receive tango lessons with the dancers of the show! After the lessons you receive a certificate and you have the option to stay at the restaurant to watch the show and have dinner! Sounds nice right?

If you want to se a great tango show and dinner I strongly recommend you Cátulo Tango
For drinks, Jack The Ripper, The Kilkenny, The Clover (http://www.guiaoleo.com.ar/restaurante/urlredirect/nombreClave/The-Clover-1453), Notorious, and The Temple Bar(http://www.guiaoleo.com.ar/restaurante/urlredirect/nombreClave/The-Temple-Bar-14422 ).
I hope you will have a great time in Buenos Aires. Regards!
