for $10 US cover you get to shake your bootie along with a fun crowd to live music. Friendly bouncers and bartenders. Cool A/C so you don't roast as you wiggle your body! The place is open until 3:30am most nights, so you can exercise...More

Bazurto is a few blocks away from Cafe Havana and to be blunt, I prefer this place to dance and have some fun. The music is Champeta which is a genre that got really going in Colombia in the 90s and since gained popularity. It...More

Don't be shy, but even if you are they will get you dancing! We came here only because we were really tired and it was a few doors down from our hotel. We ended up staying for hours learning to dance champeta! So fun! A...More

The place is charming, very nice atmosphere. The problem is that is small for the best it can offer: champeta music and dance classes. At least a Saturday it can be very crowdy, and thus not much space for dancing. Even the stage for the...More

Loved the live music. I didn't go for anything else, but found the live bands to be very good! Very Latin though, so if you don't know the latest Latin hits you can either get bored OR be animated by the contagious party atmosphere.
