If you want to get a glimpse of authentic tango culture, definitely stop by La Viruta. After having attended a few more touristy milongas around the city, La Viruta was a breath of fresh air and confirmation that tango is well and alive in Buenos Aires - after a certain hour, of course. Classes are held between approximately 11:00 and 12:00, then the dance floor is opened up for all to practice. As the night wears on, more advanced dancers make their way onto the floor, offering the equivalent of a live performance. When I wasn't dancing (or rather, stepping on patient tangueros' toes), I was more than happy watching dancers breeze their way around the room while chatting with other patrons about tango and the city.

La Viruta seems seedy on the outside - and perhaps it is, a little, on the inside, too - but it has a character all its own, and always draws an energetic, local crowd to the dance floor. A tango dancer myself, this was one of my all-time favorite places to go and dance; not for the quality of the music, or even for the other dancers for that matter, but just to have a good time and party with friends. Even if you're not a dancer, La Viruta is worth a visit to really see where locals like to hang out until the wee hours of the morning.

Located below an Armenian cultural center in the trendy Palermo neighborhood, this milonga can get pretty hot and heavy until as late as 4 or 5 in the morning. They offer tango classes most days of the week, but after 10 pm or so, it becomes a dance floor for anyone who is interested in practicing the art of tango.
