Best live salsa in Isla Verde and Condado in Janaury

What are your favorite venues for live salsa dancing (prefer older Cuban sounds as well ) in Isla Verde and Condado. We have enjoyed (last year this time) the few hours of live music at the El San Juan hotel (early evening) and want to know what is happening there this Janaury. Regards Martin

Hi Martin, in Isla Verde the place is still The Waldorf Astoria El San Juan, they have the best live band performing everynight. Is you are a "salsero" this is still the place to go hands down. In Old San Juan there are two places Neuyorican Café http://www.nuyoricancafepr.com/ (my favorite place) and Latin roots www.thelatinroots.com/our_schedules.html behind the Sheraton Hotel

In Condado the San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino offers good salsa and La Concha sometimes but both places do not compare with Old San Juan or The Waldorf Astoria El San Juan

Just wondering if it is appropriate to go to Nuyorican Cafe at night with a teenager and parents? Would we all feel comfortable?
