Buenos Aires celebrates New Year’s Eve in it’s own special way. On New Year’s Eve in Buenos Aires, you will not come across lavish fireworks displays as you would in many countries, but the city celebrates the start of the New Year in its unique way, incorporating its rich tango heritage into the celebrations.
In Buenos Aires there are thousands of restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Many of these places make the effort to prepare something a bit different for New Year’s Eve, but nothing compares to the shows put on by the tango houses.

If you need more convincing, here are our 3 reasons why you should book a new year’s eve tango show in Buenos Aires:
1) A unique Buenos Aires experience
The first reason to book a New Year’s Eve tango show is because it’s something a little different, something you wouldn’t be able to experience back home. Booking a New Year’s Eve Tango Show is an experience unique to Buenos Aires! This is your opportunity to leave old customs behind and adopt new traditions on New Year’s Eve in Buenos Aires.
At the start of the New Year in Buenos Aires, many travellers take advantage of the holiday season to escape the heat and routine of city life by fleeing the capital, meaning the city is not nearly as crowded as it is during the rest of the year. The whole idea of visiting another country is to do something different and learn a little about other cultures, and for that reason, there’s nothing better than spending this special evening at one of the top tango houses and enjoying an amazing tango show.
