Yes, the floor is not the best and the toilets not the cleanest, but the atmosphere is really authentic and there were people from all ages, some tourists but mostly local. the furniture / decoration is funky bohemian. Drinks are cheap as well. They have sometimes live music as well. They offer classes in the evenings and before the milonga,... More

Great tango lesson, even with a substitute teacher! We learned the basics super fast and were able to spend the rest of the night dancing with the more pro locals. The place is super bohemian: a great big warehouse decorated super weirdly and in a very fun way. Drinks are cheapish, but what matters is that the atmosphere is really... More

This very old building with a wood roof, cavernous interior, and dance instructors is a good place to learn to dance the tango (or just watch those who are learning). Food is not the focus here though beer and basic food is available. Arrive before 10:00 p.m. for a discounted entry; but, the musical performance does not start until much... More

There is a reason this place is rated so highly. The vibe at la catedral is amazing. Watching the dancers is mesmerizing! As an added bonus the sangria is cheap and delicious. They also serve food. The pizza is cheap, not amazing but cheap. There is an entrance fee (a few dollars) and if you get there early you can... More

I took a class here as a a beginner, and as a beginner, I mean as someone who does not know how to dance and knows nothing about tango and I still had a great time!!! Took the Saturday class at 7:30 with Pablo and Cassandra and they were great instructors. There is no need to arrive as a pair-... More

This is a fantastic and very authentic feeling milonga set in an old hall that captures the pathos and nostalgia of the Tango. Definitely worth doing. We went on a Tuesday and had a very basic Tango lesson which was fun. Cost 80 pesos. Not a spot to the eat, but a great place to soak up the feel of... More

We just visited La Catedral and took a tango lesson at 9 pm and wanted to hear the band and learned that the band won't even start till 1:30 or 2:00 am!! And I think that's why we hardly saw anyone over the age of 25 as no one older could start the night at 2 am. If you can... More

We tried the beginners tango lessons here. The instructors were amazing and the lesson was great fun. Afterwards we sat in the main room and had food, which was delicious and reasonably priced. All food served here is vegetarian. The decor was vintage and very authentic and it was fabulous to soak up the atmosphere and watch everyone tango dancing... More

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
