Overview

In the neighbourhood of San Telmo it is located the most classic house of tango of all times, El Viejo Almacén. It offers shows since 1969 and preserves the architecture and atmosphere of tango culture. The house has a unique magic in which the cultural barrier between different nationalities ceases to exist and we all joined by one of the greatest expressions of any culture: the language of music. It has a proposal of Dinner & Show, with a menu of international cuisine a la carte and an extensive wine cellar with the best national wines. Then, any member of the public is delighted with an excellent show of tango composed by prestigious dancers, the famous Quintet of El Viejo Almacén and two highly recognized national singers, who play some of the traditional songs of tango´s history. The most acclaimed tango show in the world accompanied by fine cuisine, recalls the bygone era of tango and takes us back to times of outlaws and suburbs in the ground where tango has its roots ... Buenos Aires.

The atmosphere and Tango were fantastic. The set and building are very authentic and you feel taken back to the time this dance was born. We were very close to the stage but really every seat had a great view. The dancing was nothing short...More

The tango presentation is beautiful and sexy! Classic tango house in Buenos Aires. The dinner is just OK, so I recommend only the show, the dinner was below average for the price.

Watching the dancers who make up the tango show here was a true experience. We had limited knowledge of the dance and were easily drawn into the sensual nature of this dance. This is a long term tango hall well established since 1969. The music...More

Our hotel arranged for this excursion, saying it was the most traditional in the city. It featured folkloric musicians, tango dancers and a live 5-piece orchestra. The evening included a so-so meal at the accompanying restaurant across the street. overall a pleasant evening

An old establishment, we did not have dinner but instead paid $100. per person to sit up front and center with unlimited champagne. What a great show! Very professional with several couples dancing, soloists, instrumentalists, singers and more.

How far in advance do you have to make a reservation? Do you pay in advance? Is it refundable should you decide not to go?
