So, Bissap Baobab is a restaurant by day and a Latin/Caribbean club by night. I opted for the night option. For a $5 cover charge with valid identification, you dance to your heart's content until 1:50 am. The after hours are professionally ran to ensure everyone has a drama free night.
Having spent extensive time on the east coast, I was craving traditional Soca music. Although, Bissap did not offer the pure Caribbean experience advertised, the evening we had was better. This is a small place that invites diversity and a wholesome time. People of ALL walks of life were there simply to spend an evening dancing. There were locals, tourists, Caribbean, white, Latin and even a guy from Idaho. Some could dance, most could not, but all were dancing in a place where it is about unwinding and having a good time.
People would ask you to dance and only to dance a salsa, a steamy Caribbean song or whatever beat has you hips swinging. There were not concerns of unwanted advances or petty theft. The dress varied from typical club wear to just comfortable without looking tacky. I have never been to a place so laid back with so many different backgrounds. This was a welcomed break from the traditional club scene.
