Seattle

SEATTLE...

The most popular Salsa club by far is Century Ballroom and its sister studio, HaLo. Together, they feature Salsa on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, along with a weekly Salsa Social and Bachata Social.

Other popular clubs include Babalu (very posh), Selena's Guadalajara (probably my favorite in terms of appearance; Seattle's Cuban Salsa headquarters), China Harbor, Rock Salt and Habana Sodo.

I maintain a Seattle Latin dance calendar, with each club linked to descriptions, at http://calendar.sealatin.com. However, I never got July squared away because I was sidelined for a while. I should have August ready to go, however.
 
This is the schedule in Honolulu, Hawaii:

Monday - off
Tuesday - Sanzabar (Waikiki Area)
Wednesday- Panama Hatties (Pearl Harbor Area)
Thursday- Rumours (Honolulu)
-Club Circus (Waikiki)
Friday- Las Palmas Restaurant (Honolulu)
Saturday- Che Pasta (Honolulu)
Sunday- Sheraton Night Club (Waikiki)
Anyone know if this club list is still valid?
 
In San Francisco Bay Area, my favorite places: The Beat in Berkley, CA ever second Friday of the month only, Glas Kat in 504 4th st. SF (Every Tuesday). Rockit Room 400 Clement St. (Every Monday). Vice Ultra Lounge, Walnut Creek (Every Sunday).
 
I saw that a member was inquiring about places to go for Salsa In Toronto.If anyone is wondering where all the hot Salsa spots are in Toronto check out the link below. Anyone from out of town feel free to drop me a message we can meet up and head out.

Salsa in the Czech Republic

Hey, if anybody of you is ever going to the Czech republic...to dance, of course :D, than you should visit Prague, but I dont know it well there. But anyway, here is the website. http://www.salsaweb.cz/Home.asp?La=EN
I study in Brno, there are quite many dance opportunities. I am afraid, though, the website is only in czech, but anyway...heres the link. http://www.salsabrno.cz/
I usually go to Mersey on mondays, there is a cuban lector of salsa - Willy Zamora, he is great! ;) Concerning other cities...it sucks I guess :D well, we are a small country after all ;)

Salsa Pittsburgh

That lists everything that happens on a weekly/bi-weekly/monthly basis and is updated usually a couple times a week. There are always classes and socials too and the occasional salsa night that falls through the cracks, so if anyone is even moving to the area or visiting for an extended period (who knows why you would lol) let me know. I'm pretty well connected.

Kansai! (Osaka/Kobe/Kyoto)

Has anyone else noticed the Kansai section of the Salsa 120% magazine shrinks to fewer centimetres each month - ??? There are several good parties which aren't widely advertised.

For Kansai (and of course specifically Kyoto), I find the best source of information is the Cafe Rumbita website, with its multitude of links and support for other teachers and venues:
http://rumbita.jp/

Kyoto: Fridays at Rumbita = lesson with Masanori (Los Valientes Dance Project) and Kuu - on1
1500 yen w/ 1 d
Saturdays = salsa and zouk with Lenny and Mio
Saturdays: salsa with good drawcards (prices vary) and great DJ (Rodrigo) at Spanish Harlem club

Also for Osaka, Pegao's page:
http://greens.st.wakwak.ne.jp/901780/index.html

When Kanae-sensei has a Pegao Social Party on a Saturday (at the studio in Umeda or at Salud Kobe) that's where the on2 crowd will be. Cheap and popular! She also works with Michael Kim whose parties are now some of the most popular in Osaka. He has revolutionised the bachata scene and the salsa crowd flock to his bachata nights on Tuesdays (Umeda). He pulls the crowd to Cell Block in Horie (Osaka) on Mondays and Faces in Sannomiya (Kobe) on Wednesdays.

Kobe: http://kobesalsa.com; Edwin and Fumiko also run popular parties/lessons in Nagoya. Cafe Macondo in Sakae (Nagoya) is a great venue.

Osaka: Our beloved, LA Congress-decorated DJ :) :

DJ Angel - http://www.an-fi.com/dj/en/events/salsasol.php (on2 parties)

*Shine - every 1st Saturday at Voxx Higobashi (Yotsubashi Line, Higobashi St., exit 2) - 2000 yen w/ 1 d
*SalsaSol - every Thursday at Voxx - 1500 yen w/ 1 d
Wakana from Tokyo teaches at SalsaSol every second week
*Salsa Paradise @ Calling (studio in Umeda) every 3rd Sat

Melbourne, okay!

I did find out how to find out about where to dance in Melbourne. You take a rather stunning Japanese friend dancing with you, and she attracts a lot of attention and conversation partners, who fill us in on the special salsa hideouts. We are set for the next few Saturdays! :) Also found a great website for the scene (although MacMoto probably already knows about it; that woman is amazing and does an incredible job):

www.salsa-inc.com/wheretodance.html

As soon as I saw who created the site I knew I was in luck. Obviously, teacher/performer Sharon Pakir aside, LeeLee is hands down the best dancer I have seen on the floor in Melbourne. Apart from the great technique and unique styling, I just love the cool attitude. Oh, to dance like that!

so I find some places just as work starts to get busy, and uni semester with my night seminars start in 2 wks...aaargh!!...

We dont really have a Salsa club that is open every night here in Jackson, Mississippi, but we do have a salsa studio that is downtown and near some colleges, and on Saturday night from 10 pm until 2 am they have a very cool salsa / bachata / etc scene. I mean as cool as it gets for down here. Its probably the most diverse / hip / awesome place we have to be honest. We have this place, and a ballroom dance place or two, but otherwise its all rather meh.

Anyway, the place is called, shockingly enough, Salsa Mississippi. :) It is in Jackson in the Fondren area.
