About this event


Hola lovely tango dancers, Our weekly milonga will be in Portobello Town Hall this week, due to our usual hall being used for the Edinburgh Festival. This Thursday we bring you a very special event when we have the Tango Jazz Quartet playing for us, alongside our DJ Willie.

TJQ play a fusion of jazz and tango. Check them out on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQDTgdttc4U
Our milonga starts at 7 till 10.30pm. TJQ will play 8.30-9.30. Entry is £8. It would be appreciated if you could email me at tangodeljueves@gmail.com to confirm a place; it will give us an idea of expected number. It should be another fabulous evening in an amazing Buenos Aires-esque venue!
Catch a 26, 19, 21, 42 0r 49 Lothian bus to be brought straight to the door. Come early and enjoy a walk along the prom, enjoy the independent eateries and bookstores ;-)

As always, Thursday’s TDJ is an opportunity for all levels of tango dancers to come and practice or just dance tango. It’s also a good place to catch up with old tango friends or make new ones over a cup of tea or coffee! We aim to provide a casual, friendly vibe so it’s an ideal place for newbies and visitors. And we have a different DJ each week playing some terrific tango tunes. Check out our Tango del jueves Facebook page for other details.

Whilst we have no legal covid requirements at the moment, we ask you to still consider the following:

  • If you feel unwell or have any cold like symptoms, cough, sniffles or headache please do not attend. Get well soon and keep others safe
  • Please use the hand sanitizers or wash your hands regularly

We look forward to welcoming you all for a lovely evening of tango and friends!
