Overview
At the corner of the alley named after Carlos Gardel and Anchorena street, there used to be a restaurant where colorful characters of the popular market of Buenos Aires would gather.
What to Expect
Chanta Cuatro Restaurant was a silent companion to Carlos 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.

The expression “Chanta Cuatro” originates from the game of “bochas” (from the Italian bocce). The game consists of throwing the bocha, and trying to land as many as possible close to a special, smaller ball called “bochín”. Each player starts with four balls. If one player succeeds in getting three balls near the bochín, and the other player manages to place one of his closer to it, the first player still has the chance of winning the round. The last ball has to hit the one of the opponent, moving it away and taking its place (playing “chanta”), thus winning four points and achieving “Chanta Cuatro”.

Esquina Carlos Gardel offers an unmatched, unbeatable alternative in Tango Show Restaurants. Dinner starts at 20:30 with the show at 22:30, finishing at midnight. Esquina Carlos Gardel is open every day, all-year round. Transportation is from/to hotels located in Recoleta, Puerto Madero, Palermo and San Telmo, and must be confirmed in advance and is not included in the rates. You can enjoy the most delicious dishes of international cuisine, with Argentinean specialties and a selected wine list. Dinner is a la carte, and includes all the beverages. Elegance and splendor share every corner of this dazzling place. The tango show goes through the history of tango and almost 25 artists are on stage every night.
