Latin Bar Salsa

This small alcove squirreled away in Oyafuko-dori is a magical pocket of Latin heat in the soup that is Fukuoka. Locals and transplants flock here to forget the troubles of the weekly grind and cut loose on the dance floor. But this place isn’t just for the weekends. From 7:30 pm to 9 pm enjoy Cuban Salsa on Tuesdays, Salsa on Wednesdays and Bachata on Thursdays. The dance floor opens up for “social time” after 9 pm for you to mingle and maybe learn some new steps from a friendly stranger. Friday and Saturday nights are decidedly the more lively times to visit. Opening only two years ago, this place is relatively new on the Fukuoka scene, yet it offers something decidedly different from the other dance clubs in town. Small, intimate, and family-owned, this place has a certain charm. Rather than the anonymity, you might feel at a dark dance club, the warmth of this place makes you feel like you are amongst friends. The place attracts an interesting mix of people of all ages from all over, but you are far more likely to run into Ticos, Weones, Parceros, Boludos and other Latin Americans than any other club in Fukuoka. Owners Natsumi from Columbia and Yusei from Saga have created something truly special, but don’t take my word for it. See for yourself.
