When we arrived at nearly eleven in the evening Cathedral was empty. We sat ourselves in mismatched chairs around a large round wooden table nearest the dance floor and for the next hour we drank, ordered food and watched the beginner class of mostly tourists take to the floor. As the evening progressed, so did the quality of dancing. However,... More

Went there late on a Tuesday. Knew that a couple of pros from the CITA festival would be there. I thought the place was really cool - there was plenty of room on the dance floor (but we were there pretty late so earlier may be busier). Introduced the followers in our group to the pro and he was kind... More

We went to La Catedral Club in Sarmiento to take a tango lesson and dance. The instruction was great and the drinks were cheap and at first glance, the building looked cool and eclectic and so the evening started out really fun. But when you look a little closer, you see it is absolutely broken down, filthy and cockroach infested!... More

Filthy beyond belief. We watched the lessons very informative. Food was bad. Wine was cheap. Seating crazy. With some chairs being broken with no back. Image on the website very in accurate. It is not a cathedral at all but a seedy upper floor of a building. Ok it was bohemian I credit it with that. But the open lichen... More

Hard to find but worth it. It was my first Tango lesson all levels accommodated, I loved it. Mostly locals and an authentic feel. The lesson was done with no English but it didn't matter. I think the price was 60 pesos.

Absolute magic! The night I went they were asking 50 pesos at the door. The service is a bit slow, but it wasn't really that big of a deal considering how awesome the ambiance was and the fact we snagged a good table. Try the white sangria! I think it's called Clari-co? Absolutely deslish! We arrived around 10:30/11 and the... More

Just the most amazing place. Super cool in a very informal and non pretentious way. This isn't a tourist show...it's for real. I just loved the atmosphere and stayed watching on my own until 4am. Totally absorbs you & I fell in love with tango music that night. Wine very cheap as well. If you want a real, local and... More

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.
