The original café at the corner of Av. Rivadavia and Rincón was built in 1890 and became one of the most famous in Buenos Aires.  Carlos Gardel, who lived nearby on Rincón, was a regular customer.  It got its name Café de los Angelitos in 1917 when the duo of Gardel-Razzano performed.   The history of the café including a photo of the old façade was published in Oscar Himschoot’s magazine Club de Tango in 1997.  Cafés were among the many venues where tango musicians performed during the 1920s and 1930s.

Today,  Café de los Angelitos is one of the many restaurants featuring a tango show.
