upscale Faena tango show

It’s not hard to find a tango show to attend in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Tourists have dozens of them to pick from, which is kind of a problem in itself. Which is the best? In the eyes of our contributor Carole Edrich, who is a dancer herself, it’s the Tango Salon show at Faena Hotel + Universe. See the full story here: Red Tango/Rojo Tango.

We have a full review of Faena Hotel and Universe as well and if you’re staying there, you have even more reason to just pop downstairs and take in the show. It’s definitely a hipster hotel though, so if you’re into frills more than fashion, you might be happier taking a cab over from the Four Seasons Buenos Aires, Palacio Duhau Park Hyatt, or┬ Alvear Palace Hotel. Carole is heading back to the city next month and she’ll be checking out the new St. Regis there (upgraded from a ho-hum business hotel, so we’ll see) and a couple of boutique hotels that rise above the sea of overpriced too-cool-for-you little places that have sprouted up like mushrooms there.

Meanwhile, see the tango show article if you are headed to Argentina and would like to learn more about the scene and the lingo.
