The Ranch House

For more than 60 years, the fabled Ranch House has been one of the Ojai Valley's most cherished restaurants — fine food, exquisite gardens, sublime setting ... and now, Tango.

For the "Equinox" on Second Sundays, the Ranch House offers drink specials and prepares a menu of tapas + "small plates" for Tango dancers ...

And for those who want to come earlier + enjoy dinner in the magnificent surrounding gardens, please follow this link to The Ranch House for reservations, full menu, history, directions + more ...

Atmosphere + Music

Launched in Spring 2015, the "Equinox" reflects the warmth, openness and easy-going nature of the Ojai Valley.

Local dancers are joined by tangueros from throughout the wider region — Santa Barbara, Carpinteria, Ventura, Oxnard, Camarillo, Thousand Oaks, and Los Angeles — as well as visiting dancers from up + down the coast, the Bay Area, out-of-state and beyond.

Our intimate dance space is in the Ranch House's bar + lounge area, which features a smooth bamboo floor, a long built-in sofa, and floor to ceiling picture windows all around — opening onto a mosaic of patio dining areas, grottos, ponds, bridges, curving pathways, and the magnificent surrounding gardens.

In keeping with the spirit of "equal nights," the "Equinox" offers dancers + listeners alike finely crafted tandas that alternate between classic Golden Age recordings + the best of contemporary Tango — including modern acoustic work, electronic tango, crossover musicians influenced by jazz + classical music, and "alternative" sounds borrowed from evocative traditions around the world.

Even our logo celebrates this harmonious blend of old + new, drawing its inspiration from the nearly 1,000 year old taijitu ("yin-yang symbol") of Zhou Dunyi, a Taoist philosopher of the Song Dynasty.

For more background + insight into the kind of music you are likely to find at the "Equinox," please visit our More Music page ...
