Some lovely stalls selling handicrafts and antiques. Was not too busy when we went but worth ending up in the square to watch the locals dancing. So much fun to see them enjoying themselves and all ages dancing together.

Sorry but I have no idea. I loved San Telmo. I saw nothing of Greenwich Village in this area except pure Buenos Aires.

Expensive for a small show, my experience is they were not friendly at all. It's only one pair dancing in between your meal. My experience came with unfriendly service. For a small show you overpay.
