  • What is Dance Fridays?
    It's the San Francisco Bay Area's largest and most popular salsa and bachata dance club. It's a large club, reminiscent of the days of Cafe Cocomo, or if you're a world traveller, the old Copacabana (circa year 2000) in New York. It has multiple dance rooms, caters to all style of salsa and bachata, and is a social dancer's paradise. We are open EVERY FRIDAY, with Dance Lessons at 8p. There is nothing like this anywhere else in the Bay Area.
  • Do you have Dance Lessons?
    Yes, every Friday at 8p (and every Saturday that we are open) there are ALWAYS beginning and intermediate dance lessons in both Salsa Dancing and Bachata Dance. We cater to beginners! No partner is required and you do not need to have any experience - we will get you dancing all night!
  • Are the dance lessons REALLY for Beginners?
    Are you asking again? Yes! Yes! Yes! You'll be fine. Lots of beginner's there and everyone is very friendly! Learning to dance salsa and bachata will change your life! We also offer intermediate lessons for more advanced dancers.
  • What should I wear?
    We're nightclub smart - and we're a dance club. Dress to impress. Smart Casual. We have people coming right after work, and we have people dressing up for a night on the town. That being said - No sportswear of any kind. No Hats (except Panama or similar style of course). No shorts. We recommend leather soled shoes, we have a great dance floor, but really ... Come comfortable, look your best!
  • Is there free parking available?
    Yes! There is a large amount of street parking outside the venue! The earlier you arrive, the closer you'll actually be to the entrance of the club (arriving at 8p for dance lessons, guarantees you great parking). We do recommend UBER / LYFT!
