So inspiring, artistic, unique, real underground, where you can enjoy great music, performances of authentic artists, dance tango, meet people from all around the world. I felt wonderful there!

Went on a Friday night for the 10:30pm Tango class then stayed after for the band / dance floor. The “class” (more like an informal open workshop) was in a side room, out of the main club floor, and was surprisingly informative; was pretty basic...More

Rather than spend a hundred US dollars each on a tango show, we asked at our hotel where the locals go. And it's at this cathedral that they pray tango. Off the beaten track, in a cavernous room (former garment factory?), a funky place (reminded...More

We had seen great reviews for this venue, but the ambiance and service was so poor we left after 10 minutes. We have never left any other venue due to bad service before, but La Catedral was appalling. When we arrived, it was completely dead,...More

Better than going to a fancy Tango show. You can go to La Catedral, take tango classes for 100 pesos (1h30 of class) and if you go on a Friday evening, you can see the true tango lovers dancing just for the sake of it....More

I took a tango class here. I was the only tourist, and by far the worst dancer. But it felt like a local experience and I'm glad I went. No photos, because, well, you don't really want to see me trying to Tango! Less that...More

Want to go to a milonga at La Catedral, but there appear to be three different things: La Catedral Club La Catedral Tango La Maria at Catedral I’ve checked Hoy Milonga and some of these appear to be at the same time... because of the wildly differing reviews of La Catedral are there really three different milongas going on at the same time, and if so, which one would I go for .

La Catedral is a club, i.e. a venue. La María is the name of one milonga that is held in Catedral (on Tuesdays and Saturdays). On the other days of the week the milongas don't have special names, but they are all held in the same space. It's hard to advise you on which one without knowing why you chose Catedral and what you're looking for. La Maria on Tuesdays attracts some very good dancers, all very young. On Saturdays, the milonga is about changing roles (followers who want to practice...More
