VolvoTango is one of New York City’s Great Milongas
VolvoTango is an outdoor milonga of Argentine Tango at the end of Pier 45 in the West Village. It happens on fair-weather Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays.
It’s mostly a Spring-Summer-Fall milonga, but it even happens when we have warm days in Winter. In 2017, VolvoTango ran regularly until mid-November.
VolvoTango starts as early as 1 pm and as late as 6 pm, depending on the season. Confirm the time on the day of the milonga at volvotango.com
