Of all the romantic things you can say about Buenos Aires, one that most tourists will not want to go home without experiencing is a tango show. One great option is the Sabor a Tango (literally: Flavor of Tango) show, held in the vast Palazzo Rossini, built in 1878, and which was formerly home to an opera singer’s guild. Guests generally come as part of a tour, which bring them from area hotels to the palace in central Buenos Aires. There is a dinner option that includes a free hour-long tango lesson, in which participants learn basic moves, and a three-course meal before the show begins. Food options include Argentine specialties such as empanadas, as well as international, vegetarian and fish options, a dulce de leche custard for dessert, and unlimited drinks.
Or you can dine elsewhere, and come for just the spectacle, which starts at 10:15 PM, and lasts about 90 minutes. It consists of singers, four couples dancing tango, as well as a display of criollo music, which is Euro-Argentine music, as well as some music from the Andes. There are photographers on hand snapping photos of guests during the tango lessons and show, which make a unique souvenir of a special night, which for many is the highlight of their trip to Buenos Aires.
