    What to Expect
    Visit: El Viejo Almacen, Balcarce 799, Buenos Aires Argentina

    After hotel pickup, head to San Telmo neighborhood to watch the most applauded tango show.

    Experience a show that relives the old times of tango and carries you back to the times of "malevos" and "arrabales" in the land where Tango took its first roots: Buenos Aires show in the most traditional corner of Tango.

    Watch a show at the most traditional corner of tango. El Viejo Almacen is a place with more than two centuries of history. The stage is lit, but the echoes from other centuries do not disappear. Hear the chords of a typical orchestra flow over the tables and watch the dancers spin around in an complicit embrace.

    Choose the dinner option, to have a delicious dinner including an international menu and the most typical dishes and the best Argentine wines.

    After an unforgettable night, be dropped-off back at your hotel.
