DAY 2: Buenos Aires

Although the origins of tango began in the middle of the nineteenth century, it wasn’t until the following stage that tango adopted its name, its original music and creative original choreography. In that period, it begins to take part in the life of aristocracy, so we drive to Recoleta, neighbourhood where we find the Palais de Glace, that used to be a dance floor. Later, we visit two sites that, although nowadays they do not exist anymore, were of great importance for the tango. First we approach the place where the Armenonville was one of the most luxurious cabarets in Buenos Aires. Moreover, we drive to Lo de Hansen, in Palermo, said to be one of the cradles of tango. We end up taking a snack in Esquina Aníbal Troilo, a remarkable coffee (“bar notable”). In the evening, we enjoy a dinner and a sensual tango show at Rojo Tango.

At night, we attend a wine tasting where our palate goes through different wine areas of our Argentina. Then, we enjoy a dinner crowned by a couple of dancers who perform three styles of tango: milonga, lounge and stage

Moreover, we visit Abasto, area that gave him the nickname of “Morocho del Abasto” (Brunette from Abasto). Through a walking tour, we visit the house where he lived, today turned into a museum, Zelaya Passage with murals dedicated to the singer, Paseo Gardel with his monument and the corner “Chanta Cuatro” where nowadays we find a “tanguería” (where tango shows take place).
