Avoid the dance lessons beforehand. Rude dance instructor made this place very unromantic.

I visited this club one evening for salsa dancing. I arrived early and was invited to join the salsa dance class for a fee on top of the cover. Since my girlfriend and I already know salsa, we politely declined and waited for the open dancing.
However, the dance instructor did not stop asking us after we declined and asked several more times - she even went so far as to invite my girlfriend to dance for free since she needed more girls without even addressing me. I also noticed her repeatedly asking other patrons about dancing after they declined.
They also advertised the dance lesson as being good for beginners through advanced, but the lesson was a very simple repeat of every other 1 hour salsa intro I have seen. Couples did not even practice dancing together until the last 15 minutes.
Pros: Additional dance floor upstairs and outdoor courtyard in the back nice for talking
Cons: Rude dance instructors
