These entries are additions and corrections to those that appear in Chapter 4 of Tango Lover's Guide to Buenos Aires:
- There is a new milonga on Saturdays that draws more singles, i.e. more than most other milongas for a Saturday night. It is at La Nacional (Alsina 1465) and it runs from 8PM till 4AM. Check local listings, as startup times sometimes change. The locale has also added three more milongas - on Mondays at 6 pm, Wednesdays at 9 PM and Fridays at 11 PM.
- Club La Independencia (Independencia 572) is relatively new to the milonga scene. It hosts a milonga on Wednesday beginning at 9 PM. On some nights it features live music.
- Chique at Casa Galicia (San Jose 224) has added a milonga on Tuesdays. Their Thursday milonga is very popular and gets really crowded, while the Tuesday milonga is still picking up its clientele and therefore has more dancing room. Both nights offer a class before the milonga.
- New milonga with live music by Orquesta Tipica El Afronte, Mondays and Wednesdays, on Peru 571 (Barrio San Telmo) beginning at 11 PM.
- Lo de Celia (Humberto Primo 1783) offers 3 nights of milongas starting at 6 PM. They are on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday. Their Friday night milonga continues beginning at 10 PM.
- The new Plaza Bohemio (Alsina 2540) offers milongas on Tuesdays and Sundays after 6 PM)
- Boedo Tango (San Juan 3330) now has a Sunday milonga beginning at 7PM. In addition, the organizer, Julia Doynel, has added a traditional milonga Fridays beginning at 10 PM.
