    Great DJs, chilled relaxed multicultural vibe. It's one of the best places to go dancing if you don't like big clubs. Get there early and chill in the hammock with a Mojito. Read more

    Amazing Brazilian vibes. Only downside is the size; it's very crowded with hardly any room to dance. Also note that the watermelon drink everyone recommends is basically vodka w/ a splash of fruit.

    Small, buzzy bar playing Latin music. Recommended to us by several locals for dancing but make sure you arrive ready for it as a bit too loud for pre-drinks.

    Very dimly lit, great for dancing, always popping if you show up at the right time and in the right mood. May have a $10 cover charge some nights.

    Came with a friend looking for salsa & Afrobeat dancing. What I got was a bunch of square-jawed guys dancing awkwardly with a slew of drunken girls. The live percussion & drinks were on point though.

    Rum and salsa. Very small but cozy place. Dance the night away. Friendly doorman who borrowed me his coat when I had to use the ATM outside. Went there on a Thursday.

    I went here once before I lived in NY. It was a raging packed dancehall party. Never could find the place again until this year. Def a gem, but PACKED.

    Loved the music especially the drummer but the space is super cramped and im not a fan of hipsters pretending to bacchata. . I prefer a more authentic experience

    Cash only!!!! Good Spanish hype music and average drink prices for Williamsburg. If you come after 12 be ready for the wait in line.

    Live percussionist and DJ keep the crowd dancing all night. Mostly Afro Caribbean and samba. Small venue, always crowded.
