Although coming second to the Mercado de los Artesanos for crafts shopping, and without quite the same relaxed ambiance, the advantage of choosing here to buy your souvenir mate cup is that you can relax upstairs afterwards in one of the bars, waiting for your tango class to start. Joventango holds classes daily (except Sunday) from 7 p.m. and caters to all levels, including beginners. It also stages regular milongas (open tango sessions). Check out the English website for details.
