Esquina Carlos Gardel Show

Highlights / General details

At the corner of the alley named after Carlos Gardel and Anchorena Street, next to a statue that immortalizes the most famous tango singer, there used to be a restaurant that was the gathering place for the colorful characters of the popular market of Buenos Aires. Chanta Cuatro Restaurant was a silent companion to Carlitos Gardel’s nights of dining and tango singing until sunrise with friends.

Chanta Cuatro opened its doors for the first time in 1893, at that time as a two storied restaurant and family hotel. Visitors were invited to play “bochas” (bocce) at the court attached to the restaurant. The opening of Chanta Cuatro was almost simultaneous with that of the old Mercado de Abasto (produce market) of the city of Buenos Aires, sharing its glory and decadence. It housed workers, immigrants and “malandras” (scoundrels). It witnessed the splendor of tango, maybe due to the proximity to Carlos Gardel’s home at Jean Jaures Street, less than two blocks away.

Today, more than 100 years later, as if by magic, this story comes back into life. Esquina Carlos Gardel, located exactly on the same lot where Chanta Cuatro used to be, offers an unmatched, unbeatable alternative in Tango theme restaurants.
