El Querandi, Monserrat, Buenos Aires

The Basics

El Querandi has been making its mark in the tango world since it first opened its doors in 1920, and while the nightly dinner shows are now mostly for the benefit of tourists, the passion and artistry of tango is still very much alive. Tuxedoed waiters and glittering chandeliers bring a touch of old-world glamour, film reels showcase clips of tango greats, and sultry shows feature performances by some of Buenos Aires’ most talented dancers.

To best experience the offerings at El Querandi, choose a night tour including a 3-course gourmet meal your choice of dishes—including Argentina’s renowned steak— as well as wine, a tango show, and hotel pickup and drop-off. Some Buenos Aires wine tours include a tasting at El Querandi.

Good show.
The tango dances were really good. Orchestra was v good as well. Great costumes. Besides tango dances, there were a number of solo/duet songs. Didn't understand as they were all Spanish opera. Could have fewer songs. We opted for show only (no dinner) but were offered complimentary wine/beer and one appetizer or dessert item. Good touch. Pick up and drop off at hotel was great as show started around 10:15 and ended 11;30.

El Querandi Tango Show Buenos Aires
It was a fun show in an interesting venue. Food was great. The Malbec wine was delicious. We went on the VIP rate and had upgraded selections of both.

El Querandi Tango Show with Optional Dinner
Tango show was excellent, even better than we expected. Songs by male singers were all unknown to us as Americans. They may have chosen those more classic and familiar. Dinner was generally good but steak was disappointing-a bit tough and difficult to cut. We could have done without the photographer. All in all, it was a worthwhile experience and would highly recommend it for its talent and small, intimate venue. Transporting to and from our hotel was well organized.

El Querandi Tango Show with Optional Dinner
Entertaining show. would have liked it better if the seats were closer to stage. Too far away. Food was ok. After a seat adjustment because of an insect issue i felt better.

El Querandi Tango Show with Optional Dinner
The tango show was a very good way to experience tango. We would have preferred a bit more dancing and a bit less singing and musical instrumentation, however, we very much enjoyed the show. The dinner was nice but not exceptional.

El Querandi Tango Show with Optional Dinner
Pickup and drop off were fast and prompt. Dinner was delicious and as a solo traveler I got a bottle of wine to myself (didn’t drink all of it, but still nice). The show was very good, showcasing the history and evolution of tango. My guide book had stated that the show at this venue was more “low key”, but the dancers had some pretty impressive moves! Tiny complaints: there was a bit too much singing and musical interludes compared to the dancing, and be advised that pillars may obscure some views (not by much though - you will still see the majority of the action).

Excellent way to get introduced to the tango

El Querandi Tango Show with Optional Dinner
Everything came off as advertised. We were picked up on time, the venue was small enough that everyone could have a decent view, and the talent was excellent. The violinist in the orchestra in particular was a major concert-level talent. We enjoyed that the show focused on the history of the evolution of the dance, as we didn't know much about it. The food was much better than expected and the service was excellent. Our one complaint was the use of cell phones by other people. People would hold their phones up to tape the show, right in front of others, both interfering with and distracting from other peoples' view of the show. This kind of behavior, while increasingly prevelent these days, is extremely rude. I would recommend that the place make people turn their phones off or throw them out.

Argentine Tango

Argentine tango is an improvisational dance that originated in the suburbs of Buenos Aires and Montevideo (Uruguay). Tracing the history of Argentine tango from the late 19th century bordellos—through its many generational interpretations and including plenty of modern, gasp-inducing modern twists—the El Querandi tango show is a stylish introduction to the iconic dance.
