Every Thursday we get together at Pane e Vino, a local Bar/Restaurant in Cobble Hill for a night of Argentine Tango. There is live tango music by the trio Importango (Machiko Ozawa, violin; Octavio Brunetti, piano; Adam Tully, guitar). Regulars hang out at the Bar and Lounge, and couples and small groups have dinner or just a glass of wine.
It's not a milonga (dance event) but dancers come by every week to enjoy the atmosphere and listen to the music they love. Inevitably one or two couples get up and dance a few numbers. There is usually at least one guest tango singer who is a friend of the band.
There are many regulars, everyone is friendly, and we (the band) have a great time playing and hanging out. We even talk about tango history and celebrate the birthday of one great tango composer every week.
Join this group if you:
-Like to hear really good, interesting live music
-Want to be transported to another world
-Are looking for a different scene
-Are a tango dancer who wants to learn more about tango culture - songs, customs, people, stories
-Want to find an amazing neighborhood bar in Brooklyn
Adam runs the band and introduces friends, guests, relatives, and tango dancers-- stop by and say hello to him.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
