Sydney– 20 June 2013 – Hilton Sydney’s internationally acclaimed Zeta Bar evokes dramatic mystique with the launch of its new cocktail concept ‘Alto Tango’ – translation ‘High Tango’. Delve into the romance and seduction of the world’s only UNESCO heritage listed dance – Tango - presented with a side of Zeta Bar’s friskiness.
Dancing its way every Friday from 12 July, Zeta Bar will be transformed into an experiential venue reminiscent of the glamour of 1930s Buenos Aires.

This is what guests can expect to see, hear and taste at ‘Alto Tango’, the perfect spot to while away a winter’s Friday night.

Guests will be further immersed in the authentic sounds of Tango presented by Sydney’s most renowned Tango performers, ‘Fuego Blanco’ guided by Maggie Ferguson – all graduates of Sydney’s Conservatorium of music and The University of NSW. The traditions will be juxtaposed with Zeta Bar’s resident DJ mixing ‘electro-tango’ beats, the ever popular body art live statue, a timeless photo booth and lively light projections.
