Where to DancePrint
Though the Milongas listed below are predominantly popular for their particular category, the beauty in them is that they are always mixed, especially between the Milongureo and Salon styles. If you want a table, its best to call and make a reservation well in advance. Simply say: “Una reserva, por favor, para (una, dos, tres, quatro…) persona(s). Often there are live orchestras playing and almost always there are dancers performing – usually late, meaning 2 AM or so. I’ts good to check online or in the magazine, El Tangauta. (See Publications) At many of the Milongas, there are classes beforehand. Take a class, break for dinner, and come back for the dancing – all for one price!
also Wednesday and Saturday afternoons 4932-8594
Entre Tango y Tango Friday night Los Consegrados Saturday afternoon
La Catedral – Sarmiento 4006. 15-5325-1630 Alternative and traditional music in a cavernous space. A great underground feel where you can go to dance, drink, eat from the delicious vegetarian menu, and just hang out. If you don’t dance, but love to watch, this is the perfect place to soak up the vibe.
La Marshall (Wednesdays) – Maipu 444. 4912-9043. Though this is listed as a Gay Milonga, everyone goes. Totally friendly, fun, and super relaxed. There is always something interesting happening on the dance floor and the performances are top notch.
El Motivo Tango – Club Villa Malcolm, Cordoba 5064. 4208-0623 Monday night from 8 PM, Thursday nights from 9 PM directly after classes. Here you can practice what you learn, experiment with the unknown, or simply watch some of the most innovative dancers in town.
Tango Cool Club Villa Malcolm, Cordoba 5064. 4383-7469 Wednesdays from 9:30PM and Fridays from 10PM directly after classes. Most of the best dancers come here to warm up, dance with friends, experiment, and enjoy unique performances before they move on to Canning much later.
Practica X Anchorina 641 Starts at 9 PM. A huge space that can be daunting for the uninitiated. Here both the men and the women won’t necessarily respond to you unless they’ve seen you dance already – easily resolved by taking the class beforehand.
