The well-known tango “Don Juan (El taita del barrio)” was, apparently, written in 1898.

We also know that its 2nd edition bears a lyric written by Ricardo J. Podestá.

According to different authors, it premiered at the dancehall run by Concepción Amaya, Mamita, Lavalle 2177, around 1900.

It was enthusiastically aired at the J. Hansen’s restaurant (Sarmiento Ave.) or the Casares kiosk.
