Neighborhood: Centro

This cafe has formed part of the Porteno landscape since 1858. A shrine to local tango culture, it houses the Academia Nacional del Tango and stages performances as well as literary events in the basement. Legendary literati such as the disquieting poets Argentine Alfonsina Storni and Spanish Federico García Lorca gathered here. Porteno bohemia and nostalgia fuse here over a game of chess, domino and billiards. Chocolate con Churros (hot cocoa and churros) are a traditional Argentine breakfast.
