CLASS, $8 with the Milonga and $12 for the class on it’s own. (Students $3 off)
Every month Milonga Le Chat Rouge features well-loved DJ' s including in-demand DJ' s from NYC. Our atmosphere is unique in that we feature the multidisciplinary work of Paul Walcott which creates an ambiance all it's own (Urban industrial Arts aesthetic, custom lighting etc), along with the work of a featured artist every month. Boston and especially the cutting edge South End is a ripe for this expansion of Tango. And as Boston's first dedicated Argentine Tango/ Art Space we will keep you interested and stimulated and eager to return each month.
THE FLOOR IS SMOOTH, THE SCENE, LIVELY AND SEXY, THE SOUNDS FULL, and the cats only purr and do not bite.
This month's art show is all our Paul!!~

THE SOUTH END
The South End is a vital and diverse part of Boston with a demographic we are well positioned to tap, thereby expanding the reach and the appeal of our beloved tango.
Our SOWA (South of Washington Arts district) Gallery district offers lovely and funky restaurants walking distance from the Milonga. Try Cinquecento, Meyer and Chang, The Gaslight, Estragon, and more.
(The Galleries are open Saturday till 5 and you can make a day of this fantastic burgeoning Arts district.)
