World Mental Health Congress Official Dinner

El Querandí
On August 27th, the 2013 World Mental Health Congress will offer it's Official Dinner Tango Show at El Querandí.

In accordance to the Buenos Aires registry of cadastre, the property at the corner of Moreno and Peru was one of the first groups of houses at that time.

El QuerandíEl Querandí

The old colonial house of Peru and Moreno transforms itself into the Bar "El Querandí" for good in the year 1920. With an impressive art deco façade, and, in the inside to be highlighted, a superb cedar boisserie darkened with a walnut brown cover; its reserved place limited by Salomon columns, its chessboard-like floor; its majestic wooden-tinned bar, and its round tables accompanied by Viennese chairs.

Despite its humble origins, in the 20´s tango left the brothels and the underworld districts to reach the high-class ballrooms, but to do so it had to travel to Paris to return triumphant. Typical characteristics of a society that has always looked at Europe for its models. Tango became, at last, a complete cultural expression, a gathering of myths, values, traditions and aspirations. For some people just representative of a past epoch, but in fact, tango is felt in the air of the city, as humidity.

Tango is still alive. A good way of penetrating its spirit is visiting one of the restaurants that offers tango shows of an excellent level, to enjoy tango´s sensual magnetism taken to the stage by some of the best dancers, singers and musicians in Buenos Aires.

Dinner at El Querandí will introduce you to the famous beef and delicious wines of Argentina. This will be followed by a spectacular presentation of the acclaimed popular and sensuous Tango, performed by the world´s best.

Tango is undoubtedly the most authentic artistic expression in Argentina. It is a genuine creation born in the late nineteenth century from the depths of the people´s soul.

It gained international recognition in the early twentieth century and was interpreted in various ways: sometimes with other artistic quality, others it was interpreted in a cartoonish way by internationally renowned artists.
