The tango and its various forms of expression are bound to seduce you.
It would be difficult not to be seduced by the culture of deepest Buenos Aires, whether it be its sights, sounds, or both. The city offers endless way of enjoying and living this culture. Street tango, which you will find walking thorugh the San Telmo, Palermo and Recoleta districts on any day, gathers hundreds of amateur and professional artists, who take to the streets to honour this cultural heritage. Across the city, you will also find tens of locales offering dinner, drinks and tango shows, including exclusive spaces, such as the legendary El Viejo Almacen and La Ventana in San Telmo, La Esquina Carlos Gardel in the Abasto neighbourhood and the Querandi in Monserrat. The general recommendation is to enter any place you may find on your travels, which buzzes with the sound of tango. The most daring individuals also have another interesting option, which is to partake in tango classes for one day or for several, as they are easily accessible and offered in several places. The majority of the city’s ‘tanguerias’ (tango locales) have rooms for dance classes, as well as the specialised tango schools, such as the Argentinean Tango School in the Congress district and the Carlos Copello Academy in Abasto. The easiest way to partake in this is to attend one of the parties held in various locales across the city centre. This is where people meet to dance and attend classes beforehand, to familiarise themselves with the art.
