MEDELLIN: SALON MALAGA: "NOSTALGIC TANGO" Colombia Restaurant Tip by swesn
Colombia Restaurants: 40 reviews and 37 photos
Carlos Gardel, the famous Argentine tango singer, died in a plane crash here in Medellin.
As a result, somehow, as fans mourned his death, tango music took off here, making Medellin a mini-Buenos Aires.
Salon Malaga is an absolutely delightful find. It is lined with jukeboxes and pictures of faded artistes and musicians. The tables and chairs are all old-style. Locals gather here for drinks and the nostalgic melodies of oldies and tangos.
I highly recommend visiting it.
Directions: Get off at San Antonio metro station. Walk south along Carrera 51 for just about half a block.
