We have been coming to Buenos Aires for several years and always stay two months, which gives us plenty of time to dance in at least a dozen dance halls each time. This ranks near the top of my list for several reasons. Remember that...More

Canning is the one sure bet in the carousel of BA tango. The etiquette is clear though relaxed and the Argentinians (or Portenos) are polite and respectful to all who behave well. The quality of the music and the demonstrations is good. The djs know...More

There are a few good tango clubs that are recommended by the tango maestros in New York. The best of these is Salón Canning, which is located in Palermo Viejo. They offer tango classes, which precede the evening milonga. The dance floor is large and...More

A tango dancehall for locals. Opens 11 p.m. and looks like it could continue till dawn. Very few tourists, but welcoming. Fascinating observation of social mores. Recorded music on the night we were there. Drinks and snacks available - wine-by-the-glass pretty mediocre! Otherwise, highly recommended.

You should really try a Milongo there; de rigueur as we say (a 'must'!) to complete your tango experience in BA.

This is intense! An amazing, intimate insight into the Argentinian culture. Expect to be surprised and amazed!

This is not tango with glitz and glamor. This is the real thing for locals- aging from 40 to 80. You can just as easily see a 38 year old woman dancing with a 73 year old man as with a 40 year old. It...More

This is where Buenos Aires residents go to dance - without tourists. It's the real deal and a must do. Men and women enjoying themselves and the glorious tango.

When we compared the idea of amateurs dancing at the milongas to the cost of the tango dinner shows, we thought we'd take a chance. Boy were we right. What a neat experience to see 20 couples taking "advanced" lessons followed by live tango. It...More

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

I believe it is 3:00pm. Check the milonga listing at hoy-milonga for exact time. This is their only milonga that is not packed like sardines so it is relaxed and very enjoyable.

I don't have a pic, unfortunately, but had no problem finding the place from address: Av. Raúl Scalabrini Ortiz 1331 . Street numbers are scarce enough in the area - but it's not difficult. Enjoy!
