The Esquina Carlos Gardel (Carlos Gardel Corner) is a dinner Tango show restaurant with an orchestra and stage rumored to be located on the exact corner where Carlos Gardel, used to sing in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Carlos Gardel’s birthplace and date are shrouded in mystery. Historians believe it is one of two places, either Tacuarembo, Uruguay on December 11th, 1887 or in Toulouse, France on December 11th, 1890.

Carlos Gardel sang as a child hoping to sing popular songs but his path would be changed after a poet and a musician composed a piece titled, Mi noche triste. A few months later he recorded it, and became the first singer to perform a tango cancion (song). He went on to appear in many films collaborating with his friend, Alfredo Le Pera. Unfortunately, his life was cut short by a fatal accident on June 24th, 1935 but he lives on through his music.
