The Salsero Movement Begins In The Capital Of The United Kingdom In January 2022
The salsa parties don’t stop in London that is why here we make a list of the best places to dance Salsa during this first month of the year.
We started with the Bar/ Restaurant/ Nightclub Salsa Soho, listed by many as one of the most authentic Latin music venues in the UK. Here, you can enjoy Salsa classes from 7 PM to 9 PM (every Thursday), excellent dishes of South American origin, and 50 types of cocktails. This seven-day-a-week bar has been located at 96 Charing Cross Rd since 1997.
On Thursday, January 6th, the Cross Body Salsa lessons begin with two groups at the beginner and intermediate levels (7:30 PM & 8:30 PM), added to the Cuban Salsa and Rueda Casino classes at the same two times and levels with ten teachers in constant rotation. The cost of the class varies according to the amount chosen, for example, one class has a cost of £ 10 while two classes add up to a value of £ 15. The Salsa Soho Nightclub/ Restaurant has high-definition screens, an outdoor area, an area for smokers, and a great dance floor with Latin parties until 2 AM. The mix of Latin sounds goes by DJ Dani K, DJ Massimo, DJ Tuli, DJ Erick, DJ Dennis Dale, and more DJs in rotation. Admission is £ 5 after 9 PM, and you can get more information by visiting its website.
We traveled south specifically we landed at Hideaway, a club with an elegant and relaxed atmosphere, designed to appreciate the best of live music with a drink in hand due to its bar, and tasting the best international food prepared by the restaurant’s chef. In Hideway every Thursday night is the Cuban Hideway with Salsa Casino lessons to develop the skills of Cuban Salsa dance with qualified teachers. Beginning class is from 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM, and lessons for intermediate students continue from 8:40 PM to 9:40 PM, culminating until dawn on the dance floor with DJ Rich, one of the specialist DJs in Cuban music from London. The entrance fee plus a class is £ 6 (£ 8 for live Cuban band nights – first Thursday of each month), and the price of both classes together with the entrance is £ 10 (£ 12 for Cuban band nights live – first Thursday of every month), and club entry alone is £ 5 (£ 7 on live Cuban band nights – first Thursday of every month). Hideaway is at 2 Empire Mews, Stanthorpe Road SW16 2BF.
We continue with the tropical cocktail bar, Kona Kai. This Polynesian-inspired bar transports you to the southern shores and offers the Fulham Salsa & Bachata Club every first Sunday of the month with the Incognito Bachata Salsa team. The instructions of the Dominican rhythm are the first and begin at 7:30 PM followed by Salsa classes at 8:30 PM, ending with the social dance starting at 9:15 PM with the most recent hits of Salsa, Bachata, Cha-Cha, and other Latin rhythms.
