You can experience Argentina’s home-grown dance, the tango, in an entertaining yet authentic way at this dinner show. The production tells the story of tango, from its humble roots to its worldwide fame, and includes many dexterous, gravity-defying routines.
Most visitors to Buenos Aires only dine at the most touristy parrillas published in guidebooks and sadly miss out on some of the city’s most delicious gems.
