At the end of the 19th Century when the town of Buenos Aires was trying to become a city, Tango began to spread amongst the locals and immigrants. One of the most picturesque quarters at the time was El Abasto; a working city during the day, but a place where tango prevailed during the night. This is certainly a great thing to experience whilst in Buenos Aires and is one of the most authentic Argentinian activites there is.
The Abasto neighborhood, the main supply market to the city (hence its name, in Spanish, abastecer means to supply) witnessed the rise of a popular idol Carlos Gardel. He grew up in this area and later became the personification of the Tango itself.
Today, more than 100 years later, Esquina Carlos Gardel opens its doors in the original site of Chanta Cuatro, the restaurant and hotel where Carlos Gardel gathered with his friends to dine and sing. This Tango club and restaurant, decorated in an Art Nouveau style, recreating the sophistication and luxury of the salons of old times, features high-tech acoustics and superb dancers, creating a wonderful Tango environment with first class artistic performances, together with great cuisine.
