Milonga mar de los abrazos. Milonga , escultora de formas que duran lo que dura un tango. La milonga no sabe donde viene , no sabe donde va… perdida en su ir y venir entre ella misma y si misma… La milonga, se teje, se desteje, se abraza…

Tuesday's at Parakultural can can very crowded so table reservations are advised.
An orchestra is usually playing from 0100 - 0230 which makes for a very congested, bumpy dance floor. The best time of night is after 3 am when some of the non-serious crowd goes home and other dancers appear from other milongas, resulting in a dynamic change of atmosphere.
Mixed crowd with all kinds of dancers from young salon professional to old milongueros and everything inbetween including beginners, tourists, taxi dancers and predators.
If you are a new girl in town watch out for the predators that regard you as fresh meat. They can be spotted circling the outside of the floor stopping in front of unsuspecting victims with an outstretched arm - which somehow is supposed to replace the cabaceo. Dance with them at your own risk.

THE milonga of Tuesday night. It's like 2 milongas in 1.
Earlier in the night there is an older crowd and they have always a nice orchestra and a good show. After 3 AM the younger crowd comes from another milonga which lifts upp the energy. The milonga normally goes on until 5-6 AM.
You should call and make a reservation of a table, but remember to be there before 11.30 PM otherwise they will give away your table.
There is a bar but they can't make not fancy drinks (expect Fernet! ;) They have the best empanadas in town!

Definitely the place to be on a Tuesday night after 3. Its free and a lot of dancers come in from other milongas and raise the energy. Before 3, it is sort of an older crowd. But it is still semi-formal. Salon canning is big and very well lit. So even if you dont get good tables, cabeceo is relatively easy.
