Friday
Salsa nights are every Friday with the doors opening at 9:30 p.m. There is a cover charge of $10.00. Salsa nights here are hosted by DJ Moy and he plays a mix of salsa, merengue, bachata, reggaeton, cumbia, punta, and Latin pop. There is good parking in front of the building and the place seems safe for curious non-Latinos wanting to experience something different. I would advise women to travel with a friend, if available.
