La Catedral - Bar Buenos Aires - Argentina

La Catedral has everything a first timer in Buenos Aires could ask for: it’s sultry, sexy, artsy, and culturally authentic. You feel instantly cool (and maybe even Argentine) just by being in this milonga. Locals come to show the gringos how it's done, and tourists in-the-know feel proud that they know of it at all. Built in an old warehouse with 12-meter high ceilings, the space offers nightly tango lessons on a large dance floor surrounded by tables where porteños can snag a quick bite, smoke or cerveza before getting up to dance. The walls are covered in art (and guitars) and the room is full of randomly placed junk. On the dance floor, tourists and porteños kick and strut their way through the tango, with and without a teacher. This is the perfect “underground” tango spot for all who want to take on Argentina's national dance for the first time. Once you've left La Catedral will you feel like you have finally arrived in Buenos Aires.
