Take your seat inside a restored tenement located in San Telmo, the Buenos Aires barrio where the sultry dance began.

Know More about this tour

After hotel pickup, head to the cobblestone streets of San Telmo, the birthplace of tango and the oldest barrio in Buenos Aires. Arrive at a conventillo, a historic tenement restored and now used as a restaurant-theater, where La Ventana takes place.

As you stroll through the theater’s preserved architectural interior, travel back in time to the tango grandeur of the early 1900s. If you’ve opted for dinner, arrive 90 minutes before showtime and dig into a three-course meal featuring a wide array of Argentine and international dishes, accompanied by Argentine wines. See below for a sample menu. Or, if you chose the show-only option, slip into your seat in time for the performance, and enjoy provided wine or soft drinks.

Two tango orchestras and an Argentine folk music group provide live accompaniment to the five smartly costumed couples on stage, who grace the stage with sensuality and breathtaking precision.

Listen to both Spanish and indigenous styles of music from the bands as well as vocalists. Get a glimpse of the gaucho culture, or Argentina’s version of cowboys, through a demonstration of boleadoras, used to wrangle livestock.

After the show closes with a moving tribute to Eva Perón, your driver takes you back to your hotel.

  • Transportation was a bit iffy. We were told 8:30 whereas everyone else seemed to be told 9pm. After 40 minute wait we were ready to go back to room but thankfully we didn't show starts at 10 btw. Also you need to ring up to confirm that you required transportation, not easy when you have no phone. Organisation of transport after show was pretty good though.

    What an amazing show though, loved every second of it !! A masterclass in Argentine Tango 50 of show , and a superb taste of South America for the remaining 50. We saw another show while in BA but for me this was head and shoulders above. Just Superb !

    Bravo La Ventana !!!

  • This is good to see

  • This was a great show full of very talented dancers, musicians and vocalists. The setting is a beautiful period venue with excellent lighting and sound rigs. I didn't have the food but a very kind Mexican chap I sat next to shared some of his steak and it tasted exquisite. You can sit for an hour to relax and drink as much red wine or soft drinks as you like on arrival. It is central Buenos Aires so no long slog to get there. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The show lasts over an hour and is full of beautiful songs, dances and a diverse array of talented performers. I loved it and although you are not permitted to take photos during the show understandably You can have your photo taken afterwards and chat to the performers. Highly recommended for authentic Argentinian entertainment.!!

  • The service was fantastic! The dancers were amazing, as well.

  • We really enjoyed this show on our first night in Buenos Aires! The Argentine Tango is one of my favourite dances to watch so a tango performance was a must-see for me. The show was set in a charming theatre, and the dancing and singing were excellent. Only minor criticism would be that the performances looked too choreographed. The show only option also included 2 glasses of wine per person.

  • We loved this show, it was really amazing and longer than I expected. The venue has great ambiance. The staff were nice and courteous. The food was slightly above average for this type of event.

  • Our tour did not start very well since they did not pick us up at our hotel as requested and confirmed... We went there by taxi and arrived just in time ! We did not take the optional dinner and almost missed the show !
    The show gives you a good idea of argentinan culture. Musicians, singers and dancers 3 couples dancing Tango are very talented. The place is nicely decorated.

  • The tango was fabulous. I liked that their was a broader contribution of other things, however I expected that to be a much smaller party than it was - more 80/20 rather than 50:50 to the tango. It was still a great show I just wish it had been advertised as more of an Argentinian experience evening

  • Tango Show was high energy and delivered what it promised. Liked the venue. There was confusion around the pick up time. We were given three different times, finally got it sorted out. We didn't opt for the dinner so can't comment on that. Wine was included in the ticket. Bit confusing when you exit the show, make sure you keep asking to find your bus for the included drop off.

  • Excellent dinner, great service and a spectacular tango show that lasted more than on hour with a wide variety of performances.
