Buenos Aires has always been characterized by its early twentieth century “cafetines” (traditional coffee bars), such as “Café Tortoni”. These were meeting locations for artists, writers, philosophers and friends who would gather to drink wine. CAFETIN is a true and fair view of life in those times. The “Tango” was a vital part of these “cafetines” where famous lyrics were written and sung for their very first time.
