Artango Bar and Steakhouse
A family of passionate individuals came together with a dream: to create a magical place where music, dining, dancing and sharing thrive. This idea has been developing for many years: a common passion for good steak, fine wines, Argentine tango dancing, art and good company. You can find it all at milongas in Buenos Aires – Argentine restaurants with tango dance floors. Artango brings the charm of the milonga lifestyle to Chicago.
The food goes back to Argentine roots, without compromising a contemporary touch. Local, fresh ingredients are used to create rustic, flavorful dishes. Try the best steaks in town using ancestral Argentinetechniques. Enjoy a full bar with prohibition-era inspired cocktails, and a selection of classic and rare wines from Europe to Argentina.
Tango was born on street corners, or esquinas, with the mingling of dancers, musicians, poets, and lyricists. Buenos Aires during the 1930s-1950s was flourishing with milongas, tango dance and music venues. Tango is improvisation and connection. A partner dance with two distinct roles: a leader and a follower. Like a language, the couple learns the alphabet and vocabulary, and when they meet in embrace they start a conversation. As Jorge Luis Borges stated, “the infinite tango takes me to everything.” Feel the passion and history at Artango.
Tango is the spirit and heart of the space.
