It’s no mega-club, but Latin dance lovers adore this low-lit, bohemian space. In general, you’ll find Brazilian tapas along with musical and cultural events, but the real party begins Friday and Saturday nights when Latin bands play live salsa on the first floor (with other styles occasionally thrown in). Join dancers of all levels, including beginners—just be warned that the cozy dance floor can get hot and crowded on busy nights. You can also venture upstairs to take in a menu of other acts. When you reach your dancing limit, take a break at the downstairs bar and order a Caipirinha to help you catch your breath.
