Azucar: A Sweet Place for Salsa in Buenos Aires

Share on:

Mix a little salsa and a little sugar and you get Azucar,  Buenos Aires’ most famous salsa club.azucar3

Delightfully cheesy with jungle murals and neon-lights, the flip side is that here you will never feel too fat, too badly dressed or too old to get out on the dance floor – in fact you’ll probably get dragged out for a few whirls, whether you want to or not.

The classes, given by Cuban instructors, are low-cost and usually included in modest entrance fee. Azucar is a fun place to salsa the night away, whether is be at the original Abasto location, across from Abasto Shopping Mall, or their more upscale disco in Belgrano.

A popular night is Tuesday, when there is a free salsa and meringue class from 10 until 11:00 p.m. Afterward you can stay on and dance with other students and long-time Salseros until the wee hours.
