San Diego has seen some movement in the salsa club scene as of late with some closures and management changes. With the closure of salsa Tuesdays at the Keating Hotel, a new opportunity for great salsa is starting this Tuesday September 18th in the Gaslamp Quarter. The new club, presented by Rumba Entertainment, will launch at the Onxy Room located on Fifth Avenue. The club has a good reputation as a regular club so it will be interesting to see how it fares as a salsa dance venue.
For more information and to RSVP for the Grand Opening party check out the event page on the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group.
See you all Tuesday at the Grand Opening of Noche Latina Onyx Room!

Unfortunately the club is not yet open but will be soon enough.
Although they’ve pushed the opening date back to late May, they have been hard at work putting together a state of the art venue for San Diego’s salsa dancers. The new location on Fifth Avenue boasts $2.7 million worth of upgrades including a tiered club setting with 3 levels, tapas bar on the first floor, and an open exhibition kitchen.
To follow the progress of the new Cafe Sevilla you can go to their construction blog.
See you all at Cafe Sevilla in May!
After 22 years, Café Sevilla is trading their subterranean salsa dance venue on Fourth Avenue for a larger, more heavily trafficked Fifth Avenue location.
Although I love the current location for Café Sevilla, I have to admit the changes sound good. The new location between J and K streets will boast a larger dining room and tapas bar than the current location. Even better is the expanded room for live entertainment as the club will take advantage of the 3,000 more square feet they will gain in the move.
I think the new location on Fifth Avenue will help the restaurant and bar attract a whole new group of people who have yet to experience Café Sevilla. As a dancer I’m going to appreciate the same great Café Sevilla but with lots more room to go out and dance. As I find out more information about these changes I’ll let you know. Until then let’s keep enjoying the current location on Fourth Avenue and join us on August 4th for the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group’s next 1st Wednesday Event.
See you August 4th at Café Sevilla!
