    My brother visited from Wales. He is a very adept salsa dancer. This is fun place to dance. They have a beginners class the first hour and then it's party time. Highly recommend for a first date 😉

    Oh boy. Salsa night! A fantastic teacher. A fantastic night. It did get really hot in there but I recommend this club for beginners hands down. Brilliant night.

    Visited Zanzibar to see The Moth. Fabulous vibes, just enough space, large lounging areas. Better to opt for street parking if you can; if not, there's a big lot across the street

    A fun option for New Years Eve. Live music, plenty of dance floor and lounge areas, and champagne

    Guys have mandatory cover $10 at least, and mixed drinks have little to no alcohol and are EXPENSIVE

    If you pay cash, count your change. I bought a beer for $6, gave the guy a $20, & only got $11 back.....

    The worst DJ ever. I don't like the drinks and the music was shit. The way he tried to mix songs was horrible.

    Bring your dance moves. Maybe you should even wear your TOMS for the added comfort you'll need after a night at our favorite salsa-dance spot in SM.

    I've worked as a bartender so I know how it gets sometimes but I've never seen people as bad as the ones that work here.

    They might as well rope off the line outside and put a DJ since it never moves!

    Place is really chill. Serves a pretty good Old Fashioned. Great dance floor because it's never really crowded on the weekdays. They play really good funk music. House music here is okay.

    Diverse, sexy crowd. The best night is Thursday's with Afro Funke! But any other night you're bound to get into the groove. Very laid back atmosphere.
