This review is long overdue and I am glad to see that this show is still happening. I went to this show last year and was pleased I did. My husband and I were looking for a local experience and we heard so many great things about local tango clubs that happen into the wee hours of the night. Of... More

Located in the most central and the most striking shopping centre. Most exhibitions are free. We didn't see any of their tango shows but discovered that the tango school many Argentinians attend is on the same floor in the same building. Maybe not suitable for real beginners, the price is certainly right.

We attended the Bien de Tango show at CCB on Friday night. It's also available Saturday night. A video and show information is available on their biendetango site in English. The tickets are only $400ARS ($26USD) for the first 10 rows and even cheaper for seats in further back rows. The theater is similar to a US community college space.... More

We were wandering around the Galerias Pacifico when I saw a sign (and translated it correctly with my limited Spanish) that said there was a tango show there on this particular Wednesday night. It only cost $25/pp. The show lasted an hour and was marvelous! Such a bargain and you didn't have to pay for a dinner or wine which... More

Centro Cultural Borges is located in the Galleria Pacifico, with an entrance on the outside of the building, also. I had read several reviews on Tripadvisor about performances at this cultural center, but nothing adequately prepared me. The dance and the music evoked such emotion, especially on our last night in Buenos Aires. It is obvious that perfection is the... More

In this centre you will find the Escuela Mundial de Tango - previously called Escuela Argentine de Tango.... Here you can get a pass and take tango classes with some fabulous teachers.

Fabulous, ever changing museum and gallery on the top floor of Buenos Aires swankiest shopping center. Constantly changing exhibits, performances, theater, a little of everything. A great break from shopping downstairs.

This centre was close to our hotel and rather than pay $140 each for a dinner and tango show we got tickets here for an hour + tango show for about $18 each. it was very good great dancing , wonderful orchestra and lovely singing.It seems to only be available on a Wed night.

We went to a Wednesday night show here. The performance was pretty much no frills and a little bit budget but this was reflected in the price of the ticket which was cheap compared to other shows. The dancers were extremely talented as was the singer and we really enjoyed the show. The experience was marred by the extremely rude... More

Neighbourhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theatre lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
