Great Concert Venue

We saw a great bandoneon concert, with bass, piano and a singer. Small tables in a cozy space and quite reasonable considering the top echelon performers.

in case you are a big fan of milongas on Monday evening, you may well ignore this venue. too small and poorly ventilated, precarious restrooms and quite fumble service in the front bar. only good artists may turn this venue in a cool night out.

We came here three times during our three week stay. First to enjoy international talent as part of the BA Jazz Fest 2016, next to see the "house band" Orquesta Victoria, and the third time to try our luck with tango lessons. With the exception of the Jazz Fest night, each night the place was packed with people who cam... More

We love to see Argentine tango and most places with such entertainment are in La Boca district of Buenos Aires. We stayed in Palermo about 30-45 minutes away depending on traffic. We did some research and found this place, a short taxi ride away. We absolutely loved the place, the show, the friendly local crowd, and everything about it except... More

Alternative jazz/tango bar in Palermo. You'll love the theater. Absolutely charming. You are going there to drink and to listen to music. Have a dinner at A nos Amours.

Music was very good - but to keep our reserved spots we had to arrive an hour early and stake claim to our seats - which were not that comfortable (for an hour + and then the set) The ambience was good & the staff friendly and helpful. That being said we will return when back to BA.

As adviced we arrived early to get a good seat. However, they rejected to offer us the seat we have choosen. We had the feeling that foreigners are not welcomed. However, I must admit that the Performance was very good and the Food as already mentioned nothing special. Service does not speak English and is pretty unfriendly. I would clearly... More

I have been to Café Vinilo during two trips to BA, and more than once on each of those trips. I always look forward to it and the musicians are always first rate. They offer a wide range of entertainment showcasing a variety of musical styles (jazz, folk, tango , blues), so check online for the calendar of events and... More

We went to Cafe Vinilo on our last night in BA and it was probably best that way or I would have compared every subsequent meal to it. We had dinner in the front cafe (to get in, you have to get buzzed in by staff, a bit worrisome when the building looks more like an apartment than anything else)... More

We went here for the Jazz Festival and really enjoyed the venue. The food was standard bar food so I wouldn't recommend going for that but the people were friendly and there wasn't a bad seat in the house.

Staying in Palermo

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
