The treat that you are in for at Café Tu Tu Tango is evident as soon as you walk in. Vibrantly colored walls, and an abundance of art on display. Local artists paint throughout the restaurant and display their art while patrons dine. Aromas from the kitchen mix with the sound sounds of vibrant music and sights of eclectic dancers weaving their way through the dining room. Café Tu Tu Tango evokes a time when artists found inspiration and community in sharing food, drinks and philosophy with one another. The bohemian ethos fashioned life as a grand celebration, a feast of the senses to be shared and treasured. Together, artists found kinship over meals shared on appetizer-sized plates, drinks, music, and conversation.
Café Tu Tu Tango was founded in 1991 by three friends who had just returned from a trip to Barcelona, Spain. While in Barcelona they marveled at the creativity and culture that surrounded them at so many of the cafe’s and coffee shops…artists scribbling sketches, writers working on novels, poets weaving sonnets together as they shared inspirations, encouraged one another’s creativity and noshed on small plates of unique and eclectic foods. These friends began imagining ways to bring this magic back home with them; and this was the genesis of the super creative, always evolving and sensory invoking experience that is our locally-owned Café Tu Tu Tango!
Local artists paint throughout the restaurant and display their art while patrons dine. The works of these and other artists are also available for sale through the restaurant. Don’t be surprised to see spontaneous entertainment erupt during your meal, as opera singers, tango dancers, interpretive dancers, puppeteers and magicians are regulars at Café Tu Tu Tango and often simply can’t resist adding their art to the party!
