This is an old school, afternoon milonga with an older crowd. The dancing is not flashy, but it is high-quality and charming. Men sit on one side and women on the other side of the floor, and it is cabaceo-only. I found it to be a lovely window into the tango cultural tradition in Buenos Aires, but it is not a style of dancing I particularly enjoy.

This is in a large old hall, the Leonessa. It's a beatiful floor, the best in Buenos Aires in my experience. Smooth wood, but not slick, and it feels sprung. It is undergoing renovation -- they had only one chacarera instead of two, because stomping would knock plaster off the ceiling in the floor below the dance hall.
It is probably my favorite milonga here, but I only give 4 stars because it won't be to everyone's taste. It's an older crowd, and the dancing reflects that -- beautiful, from the heart, but no longer as athletic or new. I love it, but not everyone will.
