Tango by the River, Northern California’s premier venue for authentic Argentine tango, is located in the picturesque and historic district of Old Sacramento in California’s state Capitol. Tango by the River evokes the feel of Old Buenos Aires (where tango originated) with its 19th century historic buildings and the rich cultural heritage surrounding Old Sacramento. Reminiscent of another era with its wooden boardwalks and horse-drawn carriages, there are also the modern conveniences of plenty of parking (with two huge parking garages and metered parking on the streets).
The studio itself has been called the “nation’s most elegant tango salon.” With over 1500 square feet of beautiful hardwood floor, spacious fourteen foot ceilings, and five 12-foot windows overlooking Old Sacramento, it is also probably the most romantic. Draped with velvet curtains and decorated with antiques and reproductions, there is no better place to dance the tango.
