A quick fix of Tango

This show was a part of our tour, and it was spectacular. The food and service was good, and the dancers were outstanding. It is a bit pricey, but I think it is worth it and not to be missed.

Sat in the "stalls," aka the orchestra section, aka the ground floor. I opted for the cheapest package, the show and drinks for $96 a person. The seats were great (you have a great view no matter where you sit in this venue) but the drinks were pretty cheap. As much as I enjoyed the show - and I absolutely... More

Don't miss this evening if this is the only thing you do in BA. The dancing and choreography were excellent. The show is world class quality. The story line follows tango from the 40s to modern day with gorgeous performances by these highly trained dancers. The venue is also beautiful. We took the package which included transportation to and from... More

I went to Esquina Carlos Gardel with my boyfriend last week, and it was absolutely amazing. Staff was very professional and the show just perfect. I had never seen a tango show as complete as this one, they danced a great variety of tangos, dancers were incredible!! As Argentinian i feel very proud of this show and i will recommend... More

This was part of our tour package and we had really been looking forward to it - my wife particularly. The venue was interesting, but not what we were expecting - which was more of a club atmosphere with separate dining tables. However, the orchestra was absolutely fantastic, the dancing was far more acrobatic than what is thought of as... More

It goes well beyond a typical touristic attraction. Nice and well organized theatre, ample table space, very good food, wine and service. The show runs with an introduction on tango history and the story of Carlos Gardel with interesting old documentary movies. It would be nice if the sound could be a little louder. The show itself was very professional,... More

Smaller of the tourist tango clubs, and nice setting. The show has some nice quirky elements. Food was only OK

This was our second tango show in Bueno Aires and my favorite. We had done the Los Angeles show before which was lovely, but I preferred the historical aspect of the Carlos Gardel experience. This show brought in more of the history of Tango and it was interesting to learn about Carlos Gardel and how revered he is and was.... More
