Even though Catalonia claims not to be Spain, that doesn't mean we don't want (or expect) to be able to enjoy Salsa around the calid coastline - which is the perfect place to enjoy it. In fact, there are some great places for salsa lovers (salseros) in Barcelona, and there are several small groups dedicated to roaming these clubs on a regular basis (See meetup.com). So, we'd just like to give you a run-down of the salsotecas you can expect to find yourself in once you have arrived in BCN. Azucarrr!
Here is a quick list of the popular salsaplaces in BCN. See you there!
Salsa club and school (as Buenavista), open daily with a great mix of salsa and latin flavours. Try Thursday evenings and become part of the Salsa "Circle"(you'll see what we mean - it's great fun). Fridays and Saturdays you will need to get there around 10-11 for the salsa sessions as after 12.30-01.00 the music moves to pachanga, bachata and reggaeton. Sundays there are great cuban style sessions starting around 8.30 until 12 midnight - just because it's Sunday, the music doesn't have to stop!
