Every Wednesday, this hole-in-the-wall in San Telmo turns into a temporary nighttime milonga with tango dancing and live music from local tango band, El Afronte (translating to In Your Face). Having visited Buenos Aires for a month, La Maldita became my favorite spot to go. El Afronte is simply phenomenal -- whether or not you are a tango dancer. They play with a crisp yet haunting style that brings decades-old tango tunes back to life.
Aside from the music and dancing, the attendees tend to be chatty and friendly, a mix of locals and out-of-towners. Even if you aren't a tango dancer, you will more than likely be asked to dance (or, at the very least, to share a bottle of wine).
