El Viejo Almacén - Restaurant Buenos Aires - Argentina

A 40-year-old tango complex in San Telmo, the four-story El Viejo Almacén is more than a place to enjoy a juicy slab of beef, fine wine and an hour and 50-minute tango production. On the grounds, formerly a British hospital, there's a dinner/performance hall with balcony seating, a library/lounge in the lobby, three separate dining rooms serving international cuisine, a terrace on the upper level, tango lessons, corporate events, cocktail parties, wine tastings and even outdoor entertainment near the entrance. The general consensus is that El Viejo Almacen offers the most traditional and authentic tango experience in the Capital. Don't forget to visit the upper-level terrace and take in the BA view from the top. Call to check prices and hours before going. In BA, they're always subject to change without notice. Lunch daily from noon, Dinner daily from 8 p.m., Shows: Daily at 10 p.m.
