Salsa Bar & Restaurant


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.

Really good fun and great evening. Celebrated my birthday here a few weeks ago, the lesson was fun and easy for all to follow. We kept adding people to our table for dinner which caused the serving staff great stress but they were always polite and gracious with it. My only problem was that the steak fajitas came with three small slices of steak... other than that... love it.more

I'm a regular and yet always seem to forget to check in here. I've been on most of the nights of the week but my day is Monday. I've been dancing for a while and learning from Mario for most of the time, and yet his advanced class still pushes me. Eldina is also a good teacher and while Clement isn't someone I take a class from, he's always friendly and ready to demonstrate a new move. The...more

It's been a while since a friend of mine practically forced me to give a chance to the Salsa! club.

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
