THIS IS OUR SELECTION OF TANGO SHOWS
What is the best tango show in Buenos Aires, what a difficult question to answer. We could say that there are as many answers as there are people on Earth. Tango is one and a thousand at the same time, it is multifaceted like the city of Buenos Aires. It is spontaneous, in fact true tango does not have choreography, it is a series of steps that the man indicates to his partner almost telepathically. It is that tango that it has magic. And it also has stories: that of Buenos Aires; La Boca and other neighborhoods; that of unrequited love; that of deception; that of abandonment; that of Gardel, that of Piazzolla, and that of other greats …

Tango is pure mystique and let’s agree that no one can say with certainty that they knew Buenos Aires if it did not vibrate with the melancholic sound of a bandoneon.
This is our selection of tango shows, each one with its own characteristics, none equal to the other. All recommended. Choose according to your preferences:
SEÑOR TANGO: THE MOST IMPRESSIVE SHOW.
Why do we recommend it? Three reasons. Its singer, Fernando Soler, is one of the best in the Argentine tango scene. Currently, his voice is the most recognized, and he has won multiple awards. The infrastructure of the room is not far behind. It has a large stage that can be seen from any location, as well as LED screens that accompany the different scenes of the show. Finally, the artistic quality in general, the dancers and the Señor Tango orchestra are at the level of the great shows in the world. Highly recommended!
Where is it? In Barracas, a few minutes from the city center, but off the beaten track.
MADERO TANGO: A GREAT SHOW, WITH A DREAMED VIEW.
Why do we recommend it? The price-quality ratio is unbeatable. The dance partners combine skill and passion, and the orchestra accompanies wonderfully. The show is exciting. In addition, a plus: videos are projected that portray Argentine history, from the tango of before, to now, with its exciting mutation through time.
Where is it? In Puerto Madero, hard to find a more perfect view of this neighborhood. The old cranes, the dikes, the river water, and the most glittering buildings in Buenos Aires. A postcard to remember forever.
TANGO PORTEÑO: THE TYPICAL AND TRADITIONAL TANGO SHOW.
Why do we recommend it? The main dance partner is probably the best in Buenos Aires. In addition, the deployment of costumes and staging are magnificent. Its location requires a special mention.
Where is it? In the Center, a few meters from the Obelisk and the Colón Theater. The location is a tourist attraction in itself, it used to be a famous Buenos Aires cinema-theater and even today it preserves the precious details of that era of splendor.
ROJO TANGO: THE MOST INTIMATE AND SENSUAL SHOW.
Why do we recommend it? It is a show different from the rest, hyper exclusive, intimate and sensual. The space is limited and has its benefits: the stage and the artists are close at hand and even the smallest details can be appreciated. A difficult plus to beat: the main dance couple is led by Carlos Copello, one of the most prestigious tango dancers of these times.
Where is it? In Puerto Madero, inside the Faena Hotel, one of the most exclusive and extravagant in Buenos Aires. In addition, its owner, Alan Faena, is one of the world’s top developers with his new millionaire Faena Hotel in Miami. Pure luxury.
LA VENTANA: MUCH MORE THAN TANGO.
Why do we recommend it? It escapes from the typical tango show. Because, in addition, it includes gaucho scenes (with boleadoras!) And Argentine folk music. In a couple of hours, the public appreciates the musical and traditional Argentine wealth, from the deep countryside to city life. As if that were not enough, the conductor of the orchestra deserves a special mention: in addition to showing off his violin, he leads the orchestra with an enviable tango passion.
Where is it? In San Telmo, tango is breathed in all its corners. A plus: the theater is a restored tenement house that revives the true spirit of tango.
EL QUERANDÍ: A JOURNEY IN TIME.
Why do we recommend it? Two fundamental reasons. Its singers, tangueros of good quality, a faithful representation of how tango is sung. In addition, the room is small, with capacity for a small audience. The result? An intimate show with the pleasant surprise that the artists circulate between the tables, displaying their talent within inches of the public.
Where is it? In the Monserrat neighborhood, the historic heart of Buenos Aires. A house from 1860 distinguished as a Notable Coffee for its antiquity, design, and its tango tradition. A jewel!
EL VIEJO ALMACEN: A SHOW WITH OLD CHARM.
Why do we recommend it? It has mystique, great tango masters such as Edmundo Rivero, Polaco Goyeneche, Aníbal Troilo’s bandoneon, and Osvaldo Pugliese’s orchestra passed through this corner. What a record! The place preserves that spirit of yesteryear, almost like a fantasy in which Edmundo Rivero can burst in at any moment to sing his unforgettable “Sur”.
Where is it? In San Telmo, a typical old neighborhood warehouse with 180 years of history. Small, but charming.
CAFÉ DE LOS ANGELITOS: AN ICONIC PLACE OF BUENOS AIRES.
Why do we recommend it? Because the Café de los Angelitos is from a movie. There is no other tango show with such a prelude. Its history begins in 1890 and countless famous people passed by its tables. In fact, curious fact: the Gardel-Razzano duo made their discographic debut right there, a luxury! The tango show takes place in the theater behind the Café, so it becomes the perfect excuse to fall in love with this iconic Buenos Aires place. A plus: the costumes and choreography refer us to the best of the golden age of tango.
Where is it? In Balvanera, a few minutes from the city center, but off the beaten track.
