Located on Charing Cross Road in the centre of London’s West End, the Bar Salsa bar and restaurant is the South American party heart of the capital. A great deal of effort has gone in to creating a truly Latin atmosphere here at Bar Salsa, starting with the décor which comes straight from a Rio guide book, bright colours blended with rough hewn wood for a rustic beach-bar look. The restaurant is furnished with cosy leather booths and oversized sunburst mirrors while below stairs painted wood furniture, vintage ads for Havana Club rum and Babalu cigars and exposed ducting whisk one away to the sweaty back streets of Sao Paulo. Signature cocktails from the Americas are the favourite of the bar, though bottled beers and wines from the region are also popular, while Bar Salsa’s food menu is typically relaxed and indulgent, featuring fabulous tapas sharers as well as main dishes for the hungry along the lines of burgers, fajitas and other Texacarna favourites.

I've only gone there for the Bachata nights and the Fridays. Tuesday Bachata nights are super fun, with some good dancers around. Fridays are the typical crowd, but you can have fun too.. Classes aren't my thing, but I didn't see much use due the noisy ambience - you can hardly hear or follow!

Good fun any day!more

I would give 0 stars if possible. Substandard service, tapas that had obviously been microwaved. When I tried to complain the waitress could not understand a word I was saying and asked me if I wanted more food! !

When we asked for the drinks menu it was full of delicious sounding drinks. When I tried to order a cocktail I was told that cocktails could only be ordered if seated downstairs....more

Decent place for salsa dancing. I came here on a Monday and a Wednesday night (five pound cover each), and for the couple hours I was here (10p-midnight) the dance floor was always busy with dancers of all levels, and people were quite friendly (not always the case with the London salsa scene, I've found). Didn't appear to be a place I would come for food, though others have said that the...more

Very good restaurant / bar / salsa dancing venue.

Cocktails and tapas (as a meal) are very affordable and taste great.

Service is fairly quick and friendly.

The best thing about this place is that while you eat you can watch people on the dance floor having salsa lessons. There are some great dancers who come to this place - and some not so great but very amusing ones too, nonetheless...more

Ok, so it's been a few years since I've been to this joint, but the last time I went, I just loved it. They had some excellent food, great live music, and an awesome and spacious dance floor that just makes it ideal for when you want to dance, and not get too cramped.

We went, had some dinner, enjoyed the class, and the live music, and then spent a good few hours dancing, before calling it a...more
