Regular Schedule

Milonga on Tuesdays at the Eighteenth Street Lounge (a.k.a. ESL MILONGA):

A restored town house mansion, the Eighteenth Street Lounge is one of DC's most  exclusive clubs and an enticing environment for modern tango dancers,  with original hardwood flooring, high ceilings, and comfy antique couches and chairs all around. 
Plan for a  quality evening of relaxed dancing. Eighteenth Street Lounge has been legendary in DC nightlife for years; so hip, in fact, that the entrance is secret and unmarked!   Enter at 1212 18th St.  through the unmarked door directly to the left side of The Little Beet Restaurant. http://tangomercurio.org/milonga/

The event is in the Gold Room, behind a curtain just off the main floor, or the Jazz Room, one floor up.  Please note: you'll need to present your ID at the door downstairs.

Tango Mercurio is an arts education organization presenting Argentine tango as an agent of community development.
