Post updated 5th December 2013
Thanks to all who have provided info on this venue!
It was new in 2013 and purpose built for tango. The organisers have rushed to hold their milongas behind its doors. I visited on a Friday night and liked its trad vibe and spacious feel. Since I was there a new wooden floor has been fitted – sounds good, so I’ll have to go back and try it out. Meanwhile, so you can get on the parquet before me, here’s a glimpse of the current schedule:
Monday 4pm to 1am and moving from Ideal, El Abrazo Tango Club (also continues in Ideal on Fridays), organised by Diego Alvaro y Zoraida Fontclara with DJ Gabriela Laddaga
Tuesday 6pm to 2am, Inolvidable organised by Juan Lencina (joint organiser of La Cachila in Gricel on Thursdays) and Nestor Astarita with DJ Carlos Rey
Wednesday 9pm to 3am, Milongueando (Facebook page here) organised by: Carlitos – Tito – Pepino with DJ Carlos Rey
Friday 5pm to 3am, Milonga de BsAs (Facebook page here) organised by Carlos Gallego with DJs Vivi La Falce and Dany Borelli
Saturday 9pm to 4am, Cachirulo (also continues in El Beso on Tuesdays) organised by Norma and Hector with DJ Carlos Rey
Sunday 7pm to 1am from 4th August, La Milonguita (recently moved from Centro Montanes, Facebook page here)
I’ll update this post as more milongas open in Obelisco Tango, watch this space! Meanwhile, it’s super we have a new venue instead of a venue closing, very positive stuff, and I wish all at Obelisco Tango and all the organisers great SUCCESS!
