Torquato Tasso

Address: Defensa 1575 – San Telmo

This is a typically porteño place found in San Telmo, opposite Parque Lezama, with a “Filete” (typical painting) in the front that encourages contact with tango at its best. It calls itself THE “milonga porteña”, consisting of a traditional place where “genuine” tango artists perform, and milonga and tango lessons are offered.
The show involves the best musicians and singers in the genre in a café-concert outline, where dinner is available, as well as a variety of drinks or wine. It is on stage every day and, when it is over, the milonga starts and goes on until dawn.
However, the most popular day for this milonga is Sunday at 10 pm, where an informal atmosphere is created by the convergence of experts and novices, old and young.
The lessons offered cater for all levels of learning, or improvement for advanced dancers. It is recommended to consult about the schedule, as there are different daily offers.
