Tel: 54 11 4361 3537's insider take:

Mansion Dandi Royal, the luxurious "Residential Tango Academy" housed in a 1903 San Telmo mansion, opens its Salon Dandi ballroom to the city's tangueros every Wednesday night for a milonga event called Milonga Bacana. The atmosphere of the relatively compact hall, with its bentwood chairs and neat corner bar, is refined yet cheery, a perfect place to watch (or join) the old pros, tourists, and acolytes of the Dandi's tango seminars, cutting loose with such steps as the mordida (a bite or, more loosely, a sandwich), gancho (hook), or ochos (figure eights).
