Hello, I will be traveling to Buenos Aires Argentina next month and would like to know if anyone has a recommendation for a decent Tango Show?

I was recently in Buenos Aires and took in several Tango Shows there. There are so many to choose from. I went to a small one that I was not impressed with. Then went to the most expensive one called Piazzolla which was truely amazing.
I also took a Tango Tour and they brough me to MichalAngelo which was surperb. Great costums and dancing.
I would not recommend dinner at the Tango shows. It is best to go somewhere else first.
Hope that helps,

I went to Buenos Aires last year. I only had 2 days in the city and spoke no Spanish. I took the all day Buenos Aire Tango Tour. I was glad I did too. I actually went to the show Maria mentioned. MichalAngelo. It was in an old building and fantastic. I had dinner at a famous Tango themed restaurant, took a tango lesson and spent several hours touring Buenos Aires and where Tango was born. I think of all the things to do in Buenos Aires, Tango is the most interesting and cultural to experience.
Make sure you oder befe de Chorizo once while there. Argentina beef is fantastic.
Well, have a good time in Buenos Aires.
Oh, and the Day Of Tango Tour I took was through this company.

Thanks Maria and Jennifer for that advice. Can you recommend a good place for befe de lomo?

There are so many fantastic Buenos Aires restaurants that it is hard to choose. I went to about a dozen that were good. You pay for what you get. Most of the corner restaurants are an Italian menu and not really that great.
The best place I went to wasMorena Beach. It was in Puerto Modero and about the best I have ever been to. It has it's own peir over the river and is very romantic and expensive.
Another good one I enjoyed while in Buenos Aires was in San Telmo. It was an old historic home called Casa Esteban De Luca, I think. The service was not the best but the place was extremely interesting. And the food was good.
I think Jennifer and I took the same Tango Tour. It was a memorable day.

A fantastic place for befe de Chorizo or befe de lomo is Chiquilin. It has been in exsistance since 1927 and has been mentioned in a few of my favorite Tango songs.
Here is the link for that:
Also a link for the Buenos Aires Tango Tours
