Dinner and Tango Show at La Ventana. Private Services with English Guide - Departs: 19.30 to 20.00hs.
Depart from the hotel to San Telmo, called "the Tango District". The tango is the music of Buenos Aires par excellence. Its origins date back to 1880.
The tango emerged as a mixture of Cuban and Spanish rhythms, some polka and, according to some, also a little African music. Its lyrics, difficult to
understand and impossible to translate, are deeply poetic. Each one of them has something to tell about the city, about its history and its people.
Despite its humble origins, in the 1920's tango left the brothels and the underworld to reach the salons of the upper classes. Tango finally became a
finished cultural expression, a set of myths, values, traditions and aspirations.
"La Ventana" is a pleasant atmosphere where the visitor can enjoy some delicious dishes of the local food -especially a good “bife de chorizo”, accompanied by
an excellent wine- and then enjoy the passion, the fire and the charm of the tango. In the style of the great orchestras of the 1940s, the place invites you to take
part in a luxury tour of the music of Buenos Aires par excellence. Around midnight,return to the hotel.
