"Maldita" is the milonga you want to be in Buenos Aires. A space where dancing and live music vibrates together, mixing traditional spirit and new musical concepts. This place is filled with an intense vibe that comes from the mystisicm of the orchestra, the decoration and dark ambience of the room, and the fact that this place used to be the "meca" of punk-rock´s local scene in the 90s. We have tango classes for beginners and intermediates (9pm). The Orquesta Tipica El Afronte plays its live music with a powerful new sound, breaking schemes and presenting the tango from a young and genuine perspective (11pm) And regulary after midnight, a couple of proffesional guest dancer makes a brief performance. Our milonga is an iconic space in tango scene where you´ll have the opportunity of learn how to dance tango, interact with local dancers, make new friends and truly experience Buenos Aires music of today.

The dancers were incredibly good and I was impressed by the same sex couples that were there! It was inspiring, beautiful and you take the role you choose, either you want to lead or follow. It's kind of hidden and definitely a must-do in the...More

I saw the group playing outdoors at San Telmo Square on a Sunday. The group (12+) included violins, bandoneons, and a great singer. Great tango, some old style. I highly recommend it over the touristy tango shows. You can go to their weekly milongas at...More

This is EXACTLY as advertised! It's a dance hall where locals come to dance - similarly to a country dance hall if your South/Central Texas. Go on Wednesday or Sunday. We went on Wednesday and walked from our hotel in San Telmo. If you're not...More

To be clear: the band and professional dancers were excellent and well worth the price of admission, but the Tango class beforehand was unfortunately a bit of a waste of time. There were so many people that there wasn't space even to walk, and walking...More

As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires,
Montserrat is defined by the historical events that
took place there and the landmarks that have stood the
test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of
this connection to history: countless public
demonstrations have passed through this square, going
back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the
streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos
