Tango Thursdays @ Bottegin Palazzo Xara RABAT


Tango Thursdays is all about tango & friends. A beautiful way to spend  summer nights in Malta.


On Thursday the 7th of August 2014, Isla del Tango will be organising Tango Thursdays up north to enjoy one of the finest townships in Malta which was part of the Roman city of Melita, RABAT.

Venue: Bottegin Palazzo Xara, St. Paul’s Street, RABAT.

The first part of the evening will be dedicated to a tango lab + an assisted practica session between 7.30pm and 9pm in the hall (€6). Book your place by emailing info@isladeltango.com.

At 9pm we will move into the courtyard to enjoy an open-air milonga until the cumparsita at 11.30pm. Free.  This is a gift to our tango friends.

Bottegin will be serving food and drinks before and during the milonga, all at reasonable prices.

Tango Thursdays @ Medasia Playa

Medasia Playa Sliema

Medasia & Isla del Tango Malta collaborated to host 3 Tango Thursdays, an evening of Argentine tango in a superb location, right by the water’s edge.  A chic and mellow ambiance was created, the food and drink offered were of excellent quality.  The dancing was sweet with the help of the local and visiting tangueros/as and our 3 local tango DJs:  Abby Hoffman, David Bugeja and Matteo Lamanna.
