Tango Sees Return to Popularity in Buenos Aires

Tango, the classic dance of passion, has been gaining popularity in Buenos Aires, Argentina, lately. Considering the dance is so full of sexual intensity, it's difficult to see how the dance could have ever gone out of style in the first place.

It’s almost 10 in the evening and the temperature is as hot and sticky as it was at noon, the traffic noise in the busy street just as loud as it was at rush hour when people were making their way home.

We’re having an early drink at Esquina Homero Manzi, one of Buenos Aires’s most iconic bars in a city of a thousand iconic bars and cafés. Nearby sit groups of hipsters in skinny jeans and Puma sneakers, women of a certain age with nicotine-stained smiles and octogenarian couples dressed to the nines.

Here, as in many confiterias and bars around the city, the night is just beginning, as is my search for the new Buenos Aires.
