We came here for more of an authentic tango experience and weren't disappointed. You can sit at the bar and watch all the Argentineans practice their tango together after their lessons. I would recommend going to the beginners class they offer beforehand as it's more fun if you can join in. We had a quick class at our hostel before... More

Is a good place to go and try to learn how to dance tango, but will be fun if you pay the class, don't go only to watch the class!

Hey there. With friends we spent there at least five hours and enjoyed this amazing and authentic Tango place. In my opinion this place is one of the must haves of BA. Enjoy your time there.

This is the place to try the tango in a real milonga after a couple of lessons. A marvelous place that looks like a big oldfashion barn. Look and learn and if you have the guts take part and try yourself. If you don´t it is a pleasure to just watch the guys that knows how to danse the tango.

You can take classes there, maybe your first class. The space is huge, an old flour factory. So climbing the many steps is the only way to get to the dancing floor and please, do not expect luxury, but an artist venue. The old wood floor is perfect for dancing. The admission price is right, the drinks are not too... More

Super cool, artsy, tango warehouse. I felt like this must be where all the hip Argentines go to dance tango. I took a class and decided tango is not for me, but it's fabulous to watch!

Firstly this place is really difficult to find!! It has a tiny entrance consisting of a blacked out window with a small notice on A4 paper with dance lesson times. You really would right past it, as we did several times! Several locals we asked directions from, didn’t know and one told us it shut at 10pm. We were literally... More

I went with some friends last fall to La Catedral and absolutely loved it! It feels like a hidden gem of a place, even though the secret is pretty much out right now. The place has huge vaulted ceilings, and an eclectic interior. Yes, some of it seems run down, but it adds to the charm. It's not the polished... More

This was far better value than going to a tourist trap tango show, it was a run down old building with a great atmosphere of a true Milonga, go here for a fun evening whether you can already Tango, or if you need some lessons, all are catered for.

Don't be fooled by the very plain exterior. You should definately venture inside for a quick peek-it's actually quite grand!
