I went to El Viejo Almacen a couple of years ago to see the show, and I liked it very much. The restaurant on the other hand is expensive and nothing really special. But the show was great, I went with my mother and my brother and they had a blast. It's true that you won't see a "traditional" tango show there, this is not a milonga at all.asadofed said:I am an ARgie and personally believe there's nothing wrong with tango shows for tourist.
It is true that real milongas give you the real thing, but it's also true that taking your foreign momma and grandmother to a real milonga might not be the best thing.
I saw a couple tango shows....as a hotel employee they let me go for free.
I found "El viejo almacen" as a great option for a mix.
Great orchesta....great dancers that mix real tango with a 30% of theatrical tango.
No flying women/ No horses
+IT is a historic tangueria..
I mean, sometimes seeing the real thing could be a little boring to some people.
Just an idea
