La Trastienda Club is a prominent café-concert style venue in Buenos Aires.[4]

The club was established in 1993 in a late 19th-century building originally housing a corner grocery in the Montserrat section of Buenos Aires. Seating 400 with standing-room capacity for another 1,000, its proximity to both downtown and the bohemian chic San Telmo section of the city has since helped make it one of the city's best known café-concerts and a leading local venue for artists in the world music, funk, jazz and other genres, featuring performers and bands from both Argentina and abroad.[3]
