"Retiro & San Nicolas : Confiteria Ideal" Retiro District Tip by ptitetoile

Retiro District, Buenos Aires: 25 reviews and 31 photos


Confiteria Ideal is a century old, two-story building with twenty foot ceilings on both floors. The coffeehouse is downstairs and the ballroom is upstairs. The walls are covered in dark wood paneling; the floors and round columns around the room are marble and from the ceiling hang elegant art deco chandeliers. It is one of the oldest and most elegant place to dance tango... there are tango balls in the afternoon every day and some days in the evening.
