Milongas in Buenos Aires

by RubinBarry

We are going to be staying at the Marriott Plaza in Buenos Aires from 14 February to 18 February. Is there a Milonga at the hotel or very nearby?

Sincerely,
Barry Rubin

Re: Milongas in Buenos Aires

by Porteno

No, there is no Milonga at your hotel and there are some fairly close to your hotel but I would recommend these milongas are probably your best bet,

* Las Glorietas, an outdoor milonga held on Saturday afternoons in a gazebo in a park in Belgrano, totally charmed me. It attracted lots of onlookers, and people were even taking pictures, which is usually a no-no at milongas. Nobody seemed to mind. I have heard there are lessons but don't know when they start. The link I posted says it takes place (and offers lessons) Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but check when you get there; I thought it was only Saturday afternoons, but I could be wrong.

* La Catedral is an interesting experience. If you plan to dance, do not wear your new shoes -- the wooden floor is pretty torn up. The venue is unique, to say the least. When I went, there weren't many people dancing, but lots watching (it was Halloween and there were a few performances, so that may have had something to do with it). I believe it's open every night but can't confirm that -- call to check. It's at Sarmiento 4006 in Almagro. Phone: 4342 4794

* Confiteria La Ideal is by far the best venue I saw for people who just want to watch (or even take beginner lessons). It helps that the building in which it's held is gorgeous and dripping with history. They often have live music, and I believe most of the instructors speak English. This not my favorite milonga for dancing, but I would not hesitate to recommend it as the genuine article to someone who would like to see real tango in action.

Have fun! (sorry forgot that the links do not work on VT)

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

A Pedestrian Street

by Bwana_Brown

On our first major walking expedition in the downtown area, after checking out the Obelisk on Av. 9 de Julio, we decided to get away from the busy traffic on this huge thoroughfare. It happens that the very pleasant pedestrian walkway, Av. Roque Sanez Pena (unusual because it runs diagonally across the city blocks) leads away from the Obelisk. We chose a direction that would take us toward Plaza Lavelle in the area of Tetro Colon, the famous theatre. It was great to be out in the morning sunshine enjoying the sights of the city. With it's tiled pavement and great foliage, this is a very calm and relaxing street which reminded us of our walks in Lisbon, Portugal. Avenida Roque Sanez Pena even had some nice Jacaranda trees with their purple blossoms for us to admire!

Tips are not included on bills

The local custom is to leave a 10% of what you had paid on your bill to the waiter/waitress at restaurants. If you paid $arg 50 you should leave a $arg 5.00 tip.

Anyway not everyone leaves tips. For example, if the service was a disaster or the food was horrible! you might not leave any tips, or you can leave less than the 10%

Some people gives taxi drivers tips but it's not a local custom.

IF you have your hair cut in Buenos Aires, you can give a tip around $arg 5.00 to the hairdresser.

The most common place where we leave tips in Argentina is just in Restaurants, but you can give a tip to anyone who you think has done a good work or good service.

Im travelling to The Arg from Scotland at the same time as yourself and Im having problems getting sorted for the football. Where did you get the fixture list ?? I cant find one for the new season anywhere. I was given BsAs4u.com as a good site for tickets but it wasnt the best at all. If you have any luck can you reply to this so that I can give the same site a go. Ill keep a lookout for other replies to yourself as well,
Enjoy your hols
Cheers

This beautiful building is worth looking at!

by wadekorzan

Easy to find just near Plaza de Mayo and the beginning of Florida shopping street, this is an immense structure owned by the Bank of Boston. It has two huge domes done in the style known as "neocolonial", and has a beautiful entrance door and hall. It's a beautiful building!

Café Tortoni

by Porteno about Tango shows - Tango places

http://www.cafetortoni.com.ar/index_ingles.html
Founded in 1858, Café Tortoni is the oldest coffee shop in Argentina.

Great place for people watching, having a coffee, etc and watching a bit of Tango

Definitely a tourist place but hey so is the Eiffel Tower :)) not too dressy but a step above jeans and sneakers
