It was particularly cold out today and we were highly recommended to go to Cafe Tortoni.
It was almost as cold inside as outside and I didn’t take my coat off, which was a shame, as I needed to warm up, and never did.
Put simply: you won't be getting any real tango shows. It's basically a mixture of some random dances (of which 10% was perhaps tango) with random music as well. The music isn't live, there's no band: just some cd records in two big loud speakers....More
On our last evening in BA, we decided to treat ouselves with one last tango show. To kill two birds with one stone, we opted for the tango show at the Cafe Tortoni, as it it an insitution in itself. We made our way there...More
We went around 1900 and there was quite a long queue to get in as the tango show is at 2000. We opted to go just for the cafe, not the show. We had very high expectations after reading all the reviews but actually its...More

As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos
Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighbourhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
We bought our tickets in the afternoon for the evening showing. I had been told that if you go before the show was due to start there would be a queue. When we got there we were shown to our seats straight away. We were able... More
We bought our tickets in the afternoon for the evening showing. I had been told that if you go before the show was due to start there would be a queue. When we got there we were shown to our seats straight away. We were able to order food and drinks before the show started.
