    La Catedral is a vegetarian restaurant, art gallery, tango house (milonga) and a place in which you can see live music--all in one. If you're interested in learning a few tango steps, you can do so at a reasonable rate, and their teachers are excellent. Vegetarians and meat-eating foodies alike will love the food, which is also reasonably priced and delicious over a glass of Argentinian wine. If you want to check it out during the week, Monday is the best day for dance lessons and Tuesday is the best for the overall atmosphere.

    La Catedral is a clandestine tango bar, housed inside a disused flour mill, with tango classes and live music most nights of the week. Artwork from local artists is displayed along its walls, candles are used to illuminate and fascinating knick-knacks can be found throughout its many rooms. The tables and chairs are recycled from wine barrels and disused slabs of wood. It’s full of character and frequented for the most part by locals. It has just the right level of creativity for art lovers looking for inspiration during the evening in Buenos Aires.

    First to Review

    Up the creaky stairs of an old building in Almagro lies a post-punk/neo-goth hall that hosts the largest beginner tango lesson in the city. Made up mostly of college-age tourists and local couples, the lesson often turns into a polite mosh pit of tango beginners accidentally running into each other and muttering "perdon." Once the lesson is over, the venue becomes an all-night extravaganza of singing and strumming the guitar, drinking, dancing and flirting.

    Though sometimes the sheer number of people at the venue could be annoying, I loved going to La Catedral for the atmosphere. I almost always met someone new and, of course, danced for hours.

Description

Locals and tourists alike flock to this large neo-goth hall in Almagro to learn the basics of tango. But the party doesn't end after the lesson; music typically plays until people are ready to leave, and Porteño locals are more than happy to keep dancing after dawn.
