Though recorded music is essential in many people’s lives, there is something unforgettable about the way good live music pulls you in and forges a deeper connection. As a creative city with a strong performing arts and live music scene, Buenos Aires does not disappoint for options, especially when it comes to tango, jazz and rock. Whether you are seeking a grand experience or an intimate affair, Buenos Aires has live music venues for every day of the week.
Starting high, consider heading to the Teatro Colon to catch an opera performance. Buenos Aires’ opera house is considered one of the best in the world.

While there are many places to dance and listen to tango music, La Catedral serves as a good introduction to both. For its part, Club Cultural Matienzo is a cool beacon on the local music scene; indie rock concerts are a regular feature.
For live jazz, you can get your fix with nightly performances on at the jazz lounge Notorius or at the weekly jazz sessions from retro restaurant Cafe Rivas. The Buenos Aires International Jazz Festival in the (Argentine) spring is also a treat. Otherwise, read on for more live music recommendations in Buenos Aires.
