Authentic Buenos Aires by night

Tango Buenos Aires

Local food and genuine local night time entertainment in lively Buenos Aires.

Shunning smart restaurants and tourist spots, and accompanied by a local expert, dine out like the locals, savouring authentic Argentine dishes in a variety of settings. Next up, experience the excitement of an authentic tango or peña venue.

The evening usually takes place in the upmarket neighbourhood Palermo.  Starting off with traditional street food, you move on to a feast of grilled meats from one of the city's traditional hole-in-the-wall parrillas, accompanied by Argentine wine. To round off the gastronomic delights, , sweeten your palette with artisanal ice cream

After dinner, visit a local milonga - a traditional tango hall - or a peña, similarly popular with Porteños but specialising in traditional music from the Andean north-west of Argentina. These can be wonderfully atmospheric venues, especially late at night when they tend to get busy with dancing into the early hours.
