Originally practiced in brothels and bars, the Tango has evolved into a world-renowned cultural phenomena associated with sultry and steamy nights filled with romance and intrigue. Join Ben Thomas and his trio for a thrilling evening of Tango music paired with Argentinian wines with room to dance and blush.
