Housed in a former San Telmo general store dating back to 1798, El Viejo Almacén offers a vibrant example of how good—and surprisingly uncheesy—a full-on, traditional tango show can be. The venue was launched in the late '60s by the tango artist Edmundo Rivero, who has lovingly re-created the mood of an old-time milonga with a two-hour revue propelled by a classic orquesta (a tango ensemble that leans heavily on the bandoneón, or button accordian), four sets of bailarines (dancers) and a retinue of singers. The saucy spectacular is served up with a dinner that runs in the direction of empanadas, pasta, and steak.
