Cafe Tortoni, Buenos Aires

If you want to experience the oldest café in Buenos Aires, the Gran Café Tortoni is it. With high ceilings, art nouveau design, it’s a classic Porteño café dating from 1858. High profile visitors have included Albert Einstein, the King of Spain and Hillary Clinton among others. Don’t miss their specialty, Chocolate con Churros- thick, creamy chocolate with fresh donuts.

The Café is a historic tango scene and every evening they present a different show and you must have reservations. And for that small fee and the cost of a drink, you can sit in their historical basement salon and enjoy lively tango music and dancing.
