Tango Shows in Buenos Aires

Open the door to Argentina’s heart and soul at one of our recommended Tango Shows. An Argentina trip wouldn’t be complete without spending an evening in Buenos Aires and watching a Tango show. Enjoy a delicious 3-course meal where the wine is always flowing. Let the performers captivate you with their elegance and style. Although they all offer excellent services and experiences, there are some differences that you can consider when you choose a venue. It is always a good idea to know what to expect and customize your trip accordingly

1.La Ventana

This show gives you a feel for Argentina as a whole and is ideal for travelers who want to see more than just tango. La Ventana combines tango, folklore, gaucho, and Andean music in one entertaining performance. Upon arrival, choose between sitting on the balcony or the main floor. The smaller intimate setting gives for a romantic dining experience and a more dynamic show as the performers interact with the audience.

La Ventana also offers a VIP Tango Show, with more Argentine food and wine options,  renowned dancers, and the best musicians. If you are visiting a tango show after your wine trip to Mendoza, you can find your favorite wine on the list and enjoy the VIP show.

2. Tango Porteño

Tango Porteno is for the modern traveler looking for a grand Broadway-style tango production. At Tango Porteño, you will be in awe of the different and ever-changing backdrops as the dancers move across the large stage. This show highlights the sexy “Golden Age of Tango” from the 1940s. It combines the classic beauty of tango with modern culture and tradition, highlighting the passion behind the Porteño culture.

Take a step back in time as you set foot in the large luxurious movie theater from the 1920s. It comes with a lounge and private salon for VIP tables. Sit back and let the performance draw you in with the elegant dancing, live orchestra, stage changes, wardrobes, and more. Meanwhile, enjoy a delicious 3-course Argentine meal of your choosing and fine wines.

3. Tango Piazzolla

Tango Piazzolla’s Belle Epoque theater – carefully restored luxury salon with the perfect acoustic- will make of your visit a memorable soirée. A beautiful display of live music with an excellent set of dancers. The flawless performance of their singers and the most exquisite dishes will accompany you with the remembrance of Buenos Aires, Piazzolla, and Tango. Tango Piazzolla with its Tango sextet, accompanied by dancers and the best of Argentinean voices, will offer every night a unique show called Las Cuatro Estaciones del Tango (Four seasons of Tango). It is based on Astor Piazzolla´s traditional songs and great Argentinean compositors.

4. El Querandi Tango

El Querandi is located in the historic part of Buenos Aires, San Telmo. You will probably visit San Telmo Neighborhood during your Buenos Aires tour. The venue is smaller than most of the Tango Show venues in Buenos Aires. That is surely making it an unforgettable experience. You will get a cozy feeling, especially when the tango show is playing. The dancers don’t keep themselves only on the stage, they literally dance right next to you. As well as dancers, the live band puts on a great show for music lovers. This show will show you the complete history of tango. From the Belle Epoque time to the modern tango of today.
