Overview
More
In the neighbourhood of San Telmo it is located the most classic house of tango of all times, El Viejo Almacén. It offers shows since 1969 and preserves the architecture and atmosphere of tango culture. The house has a unique magic in which the cultural barrier between different nationalities ceases to exist and we all joined by one of the greatest expressions of any culture: the language of music. It has a proposal of Dinner & Show, with a menu of international cuisine a la carte and an extensive wine cellar with the best national wines. Then, any member of the public is delighted with an excellent show of tango composed by prestigious dancers, the famous Quintet of El Viejo Almacén and two highly recognized national singers, who play some of the traditional songs of tango´s history. The most acclaimed tango show in the world accompanied by fine cuisine, recalls the bygone era of tango and takes us back to times of outlaws and suburbs in the ground where tango has its roots ... Buenos Aires.

The show was good, as was the hotel collection and return. The seats assigned for for 'Show Only VIP' tickets were however very disppointing. I believe El Viejo takes 'licence' in respect of the supply of what they claim are "VIP seats". We were assigned...More

We visited here to see the Tango so did not have the dinner, only the drinks. The show was great, seating was a little cramped. The talent on display was exceptional. One of the few shows that permit photos.

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both
locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee
hours of the morning. During the day, the antique

I can't recall if there was an extra fee but I don't believe so, I think it was reserved from when you book the show, however, ask them when you make the reservation.
