Dinner and a Tango Show

I was skeptical - a dinner tango show sounded like a touristy nightmare in Buenos Aires with mediocre food and overpriced tickets. However I decided to try this classic tourist activity because I simply wanted to see some really great tango.

La Ventana, a tango and folk dance show in the San Telmo neighborhood seemed like a good choice. The theatre was charming and surprisingly the food was good and plentiful. But when the show started I looked at my watch - it was 10:15PM and I thought that it may last for an hour at the most. However 2 hours later my companion and I looked at each other in amazement - we were impressed with the variety and quality of dance and music - as well as the length of the show.

The show had singers, 4 tango couples, a live tango band, a folk band and some amazing folk dancers that were probably the biggest surprise of the night.

Yes - it was touristy - but it also was a fun night out, a decent dinner, and a chance to see some of the best talent perform.

More details - shows are daily and can be booked with or without dinner. Each dinner comes with a bottle of wine. No photos are allowed of the show.
