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'll feel instantly cool (and maybe even Argentine) just by being there. Argentines come to show the gringos how it's done, and tourists in-the-know feel proud that they're aware of if it at all. Built in an old 19th-century warehouse, the space offers nightly tango lessons on a large dance floor surrounded by tables where porteños snag a quick bite, smoke and a 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 to show them how it's done. This is the perfect “underground” tango spot for all who want to take on Argentina's national dance in good company. Only once you've left La Catedral will you feel like you have finally arrived in Buenos Aires.
