Club 1830 (outside nightclub?)

Club 1830 has been recommended to me by my salsa teacher in Manchester, UK.

From googling this I believe it is a restuarant and a club. I only interested in it as a place to dance.

Has anyone been? Any thoughts about this place?

Thank you.

1830 runs a little hot and cold, but there can be some really good dancers there. It attracts a higher class of jinetero/jinetera than many places. You'll have no problems finding dance partners.

Cheers,

Terry

And yes, the club is outside so don't bother going if it's raining. It's an old fort right on the water.

Cheers,

A couple of years ago it was about the hottest dancing spot in town - especially on Sundays - but when I was in Havana last time it was completely out of fashion. That may have changed since then, although I suspect not.

They still have Salsa nights outside it is pretty well set up as an outside bar. The time I was there the crowd was quite small but enthusiastic.

The Restaurant is about average for Havana.

But it is worth seeing just to look at the amazing coral castle/sculpture built at the waterline.

You can also get up close to the Moorish looking Gazebo that is at the mouth of the Rio Almendares. Both are great photo ops.

I have heard recently of several of the more popular reggaeton stars playing there - so perhaps it is getting trendy again.

My favourite outside place to dance in Cuba. I have danced there 4 times.

Its still the best place for salsa (in my opinion) on Thursdays and Sunday nights. I go there very often. The crowd is mixed of Cuban pro and street dancers, tourist and salsa holidays makers. Of course there will be some jineteros but its not that bad as in other places. I have never been hustled, only asked to dance and thats the reason for me to go there. Dance, dance and dance. :)

The place close at midnight. And from Feb 2012 they also run Rueda de Casino nights on Wednesday.

Just like Veronika said, Thursday and Sunday nights. 8pm unitl midnight. 3CUC entry. And although it's outside, you're not dancing on concrete - there is an actual dance 'floor' - you can pivot and do multiple spins with no trouble. Great dancers - look for Yunior and Ernesto for example, both are pros and not too rough (Cuban style dancers are often known for their strong lead, but these two have danced with and taught enough tourists to have more of a smooth, soft, LA/NY-style lead). Don't go if it's raining -- if that happens, you'll find everyone at Hotel Florida (5CUC entry with 2 drinks included, 9:30pm until 1am, every night of the week). Enjoy :)
