A 1930s style cafe
that was immortalised in Sally Potter's
"The Tango Lesson", La Ideal in
Suipacha, Buenos Aires, is a piece of
tango history that lives on.
Walking up the
stairs you step back in time and, as you
step into the dance hall, 60 or 70 years
have rolled away.
half-panelled walls blend with the
smoke-cured creams and beiges of the
pillars and ceiling. Chandeliers and fans
add to the ambience.
