HOURS: Mon.-Thur. 4 p.m.-2 a.m., Fri.-Sat. 4 p.m.-3 a.m.
Deceptively small from the outside, this row-house club is known for its mango mojitos and free salsa lessons.
The tunes get cranked up after 10 p.m., and those with inhibitions run out the door. Everyone else dances with abandon—many of them are very good at various Latin style dances and others who aren’t, but who cares?
Weekdays are less crowded, with more time to work on your form; on Monday nights, enjoy a flamenco show.
