For the full Madero Tango experience, have dinner before the show—the restaurant is known for its high-quality Argentine steaks and wine list. You also have the option of skipping dinner and only watching the show. Either way, guarantee admission and secure prime seating by prebooking your ticket. Some packages include hotel pickup and drop-off. The dinner and show package is also included in some city sightseeing tours.
Things to Know Before You Go
Madero Tango is a must-do for those interested in Argentine heritage, music, and dance.
The show features more than 30 performers and a live orchestra.
Vegetarian, low-sodium, celiac, and children’s menus are available.
Ticket prices vary depending on seating selected.
The building is accessible for wheelchair users.
How to Get There
Madero Tango is located in a well-trafficked neighborhood, close to several hotels. Multiple buses stop nearby, and the closest subway station is Independencia, around a 20-minute walk away. If catching a cab from Recoleta or the Plaza de Mayo, it will take around 25 minutes to arrive.
When to Get There
The time you need to arrive depends on whether you booked the dinner and show package or just the show. If not using the shuttle service, try to arrive at least 15 minutes before the show's start to find your seats and settle in. The show lasts around one hour and forty minutes.
The location of the hall works to reinforce the heritage expressed in the show. The building looks out over the Rio de la Plata, the river that brought European immigrants to town. That same group, in the late 19th century, gave birth to the tango.
