Default NYC: Reputable venues to dance salsa/merengue/bachata?
Hi, just wondering if anyone can recommend good places for dancing salsa/merengue/bachata in/around New York City on weekends (especially Fridays)...The main issues would be the patrons (must be decent people for the most part), the dance floor (reasonably large for the typical attendance, that is, not too crowded) and the physical location (decent neighbourhood, with good public transport options). I imagine there are many possibilities by Washington Heights and the Bronx, but of course not all may be suitable given above issues. Thanks.

Sofrito is really more of a restaurant/lounge with live music one or two days a week, not exactly a dancing venue.

I dont think Copacabana exists anymore. Latin Quarters is ok but over-rated, if u wanna REALLY get down try Dyckman-200th streets in uptown manhatten the whole strip on Dyckman is filled with Clubs abd bars, and all the way at the end towards the water u have La Marina, probably the best dance/bar/nightlife around on a Sunday but it closes around 1am. Theres a heavy spanish population there and the music is good

Copacabana is alive and kicking. It is located in the old China Club. Has all the nights the old Copa use to have. Tuesday after work is the best with free dance classes and buffet. A band usually performs. Of course, it is not the original shown in Good Fellas but something is something. A good time every time.
