I met some swedes at salsa congresses in Sweden who were curious about the salsa scene in Copenhagen so I thought I'd compile a little guide here. The best salsa portal for Denmark that know of is Hifi Salsa that among much other info has a listing of salsa clubs in Copenhagen. Here are the alternatives that I am familiar with, organized by week day:
- Monday - Cafe Kellerdirk. Great atmosphere, music, and crowd.
- Wednesday - SalsaVida used to have dancing at Cavi club but they had to shut down, probably because they couldn't attract enough people.
- Thursday, Friday, and Saturday - Latin Quarter or Sabor Latino. Sabor Latino has a more cuban flavor, a good location right next to the city hall, and attracts a lot of tourists and locals who have never tried salsa before. I prefer Latin Quarter for the better music and more salsa savvy crowd. Latin Quarter is newly renovated and just opened with an interesting concept of playing hip-hop funk etc. for a small dance floor and the bar downstairs and hard core salsa for the big dance floor upstairs.
- Sunday - Park Cafe. Good atmosphere, interiors, crowd, and music.
