What do I think about this place? This place usually brings a good crowd of dancers. This place will, almost guaranteed, satisfy your dance itch if you’re looking for a place to dance on a Tuesday. The venue is not the most renovated looking place, but the people in it definitely make it worthwhile going. People usually get here around 11pm, and they stay late!
1934 Hollywood Blvd #9, Hollywood, FL 33020
Ladies FREE all night. Men pay $10 cover. Groups of 5 girls or more get a FREE champagne bottle.
What do I think about this place? This is a good place to go social dancing in a more relaxed environment. The dancers that come here are just looking to have a fun night out social dancing, not to show off their skills. The level of dancers that come here is on the intermediate side, so as a beginner you won’t feel intimidated to join, and as an advanced dancer, you can still find good dancers. The music is not going to be 100% salsa and bachata. You will find reggeaton and American pop music intermission between the salsa sets. Overall this is a fun place for a Wednesday night to go dancing.
2029 Harrison St, Hollywood, FL 33020
$7 Cover. Women free before 10:15pm. Lesson included before the party starts.
What do I think about this place? Completely renovated venue, and it looks awesome! It usually brings in a good crowd. The beginner dance class at the beginning of the party is not so great, as the venue is not a dance studio and people are not focused. Great place to dance on a Thursday. I recommend getting there around 10:30pm before it gets crowded so you’ll have space to dance in!

What do I think about this place? This is a great place to go if you’re a beginner. Very relaxed atmosphere. The class at the beginning is great, and very informative. Everyone here is really welcoming and friendly. Everyone that comes here is a beginner so you can feel free to practice your dance moves with everyone. The music is great! Must go to if you’re starting your salsa journey out!
Frankey’s Sports Bar
900 Silks Run, Bldg 1720, Hallandale Beach, Florida 33009
No Cover all night long. Paid Lesson before the party starts. Sometimes it has dance performances by local schools.
What do I think about this place? I love this venue! It has a really good atmosphere. The class at the beginning of the party is free and it gets a lot of people, so it is a good ice breaker if you don’t know anyone there. The music is 50% salsa and 50% bachata (sometimes maybe more bachata than salsa). I would definitely recommend this venue any Friday night. the venue is an upscale sports bar so you can have drinks in between your dance sessions. Fun place!

What do I think about this place? The BEST place to go salsa dancing! Definitely catch this party if you have a chance. It is a big ballroom that looks like it has been decorated for a quinceanera (sweet sixteen), but never mind that because the dancers in there are phenomenal. All the best salsa dancers from all over Florida come out to dance salsa at this party. Here is where you’ll continuously catch the best dancers. Everyone brings their own flavor here to show off at the dance floor. It looks like something out of an underground salsa movie. The music is great, this place is a salsa must!
