El Viejo Almacén

Address: Independencia (y Balcarce) 200 – San Telmo

This is the most famous tango corner of Buenos Aires with more than two centuries of history. This former grocery store located in a square-corner turned into one of the world’s most famous tango salons due to its excellent genuine tango show.
It is not just a tango show for tourists and said fact is evidenced by its history.
From the style set by its owner, the great singer Edmundo Rivero, surrounded by Argentinian slang, an emblematic decoration and lots of tango history, the programs have always been composed of many important figures of the music of Buenos Aires. Nowadays, the great Virginia Luque sings there every night.
This constitutes one of the most interesting dinner-tango-show proposals of Buenos Aires, in a mythical corner of the San Telmo neighborhood.
This traditional corner has now been transformed into a groceries store where all kinds of tango-related products can be bought, many souvenirs and high-quality crafts, books and CDs. The restaurant where the tango-show takes place is located in the extension of the store, across the street.
