Rock & Tango en La Viruta! Friday, Saturday and Sunday night fever in Buenos Aires! It is very nice to take a rock lesson before the milonga when everybody can dance Rock and roll and Tango on the same disco club. Open from 11pm till morning. After 4am you can have breakfast with "medialunas and sub marino" (Milk and chocolate).

This is a real dance lesson. It is not a show, it is more authentic and real, full of locals and few tourists. You can enjoy not only trying to learn some of the complex dacing steps for tango and milongas but also a vibrant environmnet full of enthusiasm and energy for salsa. It is really a pleasure to watch... More

If tango is a typical attraction of Argentina, La Viruta is the place where you can enjoy it. If you don't dance tango, you can sit and watch the dancers while enjoying a drink. Or, you can take a group lesson from teachers who are friendly and helpful. They speak in Spanish, but easy to understand what they want transmit.... More

That's how it's explained by locals (both tangueras and others) wrt being more relaxed as a milongo destination. One of my tango friends started out there wrt lessons; one doesn't feel so intimidated as everyone is more relaxed, wearing all kinds of different clothes to dance - not so specific wrt what goes/ what does not go. We enjoyed it!

This place was very nice to visit and take some classes or just watch. After midnight is FREE entrance but it's not advertised a lot about that . The service was good and the place was clean and safe.

We wanted to experience some local culture and this did not disappoint. We were told that this was the place where locals did Tango but tourists were allowed to join in the fun.

We wanted to experience the local milo ha scene without paying the earth to see seedy tango show. This held in community hall gave us a lesson in Spanish but plenty of gesticulations made understanding easy.

My wife and I were keen to sample some genuine Argentine culture whilst in Buenos Aires, so chose to turn up at this tango club to have a go.

Staying in Palermo

Neighbourhood Profile
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
