ETS Tango Brunch at The Counting House 20 years and onwards

Stories : Story : Chronicle : History

Did you know that the ETS Brunch Milonga at The Counting House started way back in 2003? In fact, it has been running for some 20 years.

This humble image of the fruit bowl, taken at the very first brunch all those years ago, is our only known evidence.

The ETS Brunch is held once a month on Saturday afternoon. Brunch is served buffet style in the bar lounge while the milonga continues in the adjacent dancehall. Dancers can eat, drink, chat and dance all afternoon.

From the beginning and every month without fail the brunch, organised by Toby Morris, has been supported by The Counting House, many local community DJ’s, volunteers and dancers near and far.

It is a splendid way to spend a Saturday afternoon in Edinburgh.
