Buenos Aires is the birthplace and the world capital of tango, a rhythm that was created along the banks of the Rio de la Plata, at the end of the 19th century, as a fusion of European and African music. The Tango is manifested in the lyrics (any of the words used in the tango come from lunfardoor porteños' slang), in the music (the bandoneón provided the music from the Rio de la Plata, with its melancholic and somewhat sullen sound that characterizes tango today), and in the dance.
Enjoy one of the best shows in the city at La Ventana! A great display of performances with over 30 artists on stage including dancers and musicians resulting in one of Buenos Aires' most memorable shows!
The architecture of La Ventana is as graceful and engaging as its tango dancers. The interior of the building is beautifully preserved, making each of the three stories a unique setting for the three distinct tango shows held every night. The lowest level, where La Ventana takes place, is especially elegant, with brick walls and wine bottles tucked away as in a vineyard's cellar. As one of the newer tango shows in the city, La Ventana's enthusiasm is fresh and palpable. The menu is fixed but you can choose between various meat and veggie dishes and sides, all of which are delicious and accompanied with a wine of your choice. The traditional tango dancing is mixed with folkloric dance and song, keeping the performances varied. La Ventana keeps the neighborhood's artistic legacy alive by helping to foster its own community of artists, maintaining thirty-five artists in residence, two tango orchestras, a folklore band and a recently opened tango school for those with the desire of learning Argentina's signature dance.
The tour includes shuttle transportation from your hotel to La Ventana and back.
