In the eighteenth century, elements of the tango were born in Spain from a dance called the contradanza. In the early 1800's, the contradanza was later introduced into Cuba where it became the habañera. The habañera made its way to Buenos Aires where the Argentine milonga dance had risen to popularity. In the Buenos Aires brothels, the milonga dance was mixed with flavors of the habañera and the Tango was born. The tango dance was flavored by ingredients of dance from Spain, Cuba and South America. At Tango Restaurant we use the history of the tango as a guide for our latin infused food and drink. Taste our Spanish tapas, Cuban mojitos or South American ceviche and enjoy!
