All-Nighter at The Beat
This event is one of the longest-running North American all-nighters and attracts dancers from and outside of the bay area. It celebrated its 20th anniversary in January 2020, shortly before the COVID-19 pandemic changed the world.
The milonga is typically held on the 4th Saturday of every month (with rare date changes or cancellations due to holidays or event conflicts), currently hosted by Felipe & Ayano and Jonas & Xiaomin. The cost of admission includes delicious snacks and wine as well as hot tea and coffee to provide sustenance for the long night of dancing. Join Tango at The Beat Facebook group for the latest info.
