After months and months of waiting with multiple push backs on the official opening date, Cafe Sevilla is finally set to open once again this Thursday July 14th! I just received word from SalsaCA.com’s Valerie with confirmation of the final permit inspection and that Club Salsa will launch at the new 5th Avenue location this week.
IMPORTANT: The opening night of salsa on July 14 is invite only and you will need to email Valerie at SalsaCA.com to get on the invitee list.
If you don’t get on the invite list or simply can’t make it this Thursday don’t worry. RitmoBello.com in conjunction with the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group is gearing up to bring back the popular Meetup.com night at Cafe Sevilla. The “1st Thursday of the month with Meetup.com at Club Sevilla” is slated to occur for the first time at the new club on Thursday August 4th, 2011. Stay tuned to RitmoBello.com for more information in the coming weeks.
See you all on the dance floor at the new 5th Avenue Cafe Sevilla!

When people mention Cafe Sevilla to me the question today is always, “When will Cafe Sevilla Re-open?!” Well, San Diego salsa dancers your 8 months or so of waiting is coming to an end. Cafe Sevilla is re-opening in its new 5th Avenue location with a whopping 10,000 square feet restaurant and club this month. The former location was only 7,000 square feet back on 4th Avenue and Spanish-born owners Rogelio and Janet Huidobro have invested $2.7 million in making sure that the new location meets every salsa dancers’ expectations.
Some of the major changes will include a larger tapas bar when compared to the old location and an underground nightclub that will accommodate 330 people. We are talking capacity for 90 additional salsa dancers compared to Cafe Sevilla’s old digs.
My hope with the new location is that it meets the needs of San Diego’s salsa dancers and that they bring quality, LIVE entertainment that San Diego sorely needs in a venue.
Cafe Sevilla’s Grand Opening Party & Fundraiser to benefit the It’s All About the Kids Foundation is scheduled for June 29th but the real salsa dancing will begin on a regular schedule on Thursdays each week. I’m already working on getting the first Thursday of each month designated as Meetup.com night and I will get details to you all soon about it.
See you sometime in June at the new 5th Avenue Cafe Sevilla!
Cafe Sevilla is currently moving from their old 4th Avenue location to the new venue at 353 5th Avenue. Although we won’t be able to enjoy the restaurant and dance club during this time, we can still follow their developments online. A new blog was recently launched by Sevilla that tracks everything you need to know about how their move is going and when the new club will open for salsa dancing.
Check out their new blog and let me know what you all think in your comments here on Ritmo Bello.
