“a cool club for salsa”
Reviewed 26 May 2012

If you like dancing the salsa, or just watching, this is the place to go, the fun starts at 11 pm, but you can get free lessons before that. Just go !

“Great for salsa!”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

I've never eaten here but it's an excellent place to go for salsa dancing. There is a 50 peso cover; the live band usually starts at 11. There are tables to eat and drink around the dance floor. There aren't usually many foreigners here--just locals who really know how to dance! They also offer a free salsa class from 10-11 if you want to learn the basic steps before trying to keep up with the professionals! Even if you don't know how to dance, don't worry. There are plenty of locals who are happy to teach you!

“Great music but eat before going”
Reviewed 2 February 2012

This place is attempting to regain a clientele & it has wonderful music most nights but the wait staff seem astonished if you ask for a menu & then there's the long process of getting someone to take your order and then - and then - waiting to see if your food will ever arrive. It does & it's so-so. The good thing is that the music is great while you're waiting, but if you aren't there for the long haul you may want to grab a snack before going for the music.
