This dance hall is perfect for salsa exponents, those looking to tgive it a whirl without disgracing themselves and those who want to just take it in. Great atmosphere, music and fun crowd. As to why the cocktails were deadly, you will just have to try for yourself

I have not eaten here, but it is the place in Oaxaca for salsa, meringue and mamba dancing. If you dance well and have money to keep buying drinks before the waiters move you out of your table, I guess this is the place for you. I love watching good dancers and I have danced with the instructors who give... More

I agree with previous reviews that this is not actually a restaurant. They are closed on Mondays and there were very few people in there on Thursday night, but it picked up on Friday night. Apparently there are lessons at 10 pm, but on the Thursday night no one was there and the bartender and doorman gave myself and my... More

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 !

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... More

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.... More
