For more information on public transportation, click on NYC Subway-Bus-Train Maps , or NY-NJ PATH Train Maps or Long Island Railroad Maps or MetroNorth Railroad Maps or HopStop.
 

OTHER INFORMATION No age requirements for entrance to the restaurant and dancing area, but ID showing age 21 is required to order liquor from the bar.

Please Note:  Since commercial clubs have high expenses and need to make a profit in order to stay open and continue playing lots of salsa, they will therefore cater to the customers who spend the most money at the bar.  Mambo dancers can help get what they want by spending more money for drinks at the bar, even if it's sodas, fruit juices, virgin cocktails, water, sports drinks.  You may think you're smart by not buying anything at a club, or sneaking in a bottle of water or liquor, but actually you are pushing them to cater to other customers who will spend more at the bar.  Those are the customers who want to hear other kinds of music instead of salsa.  If you want commercial clubs to feature more salsa nights, you have to pay for it by purchasing beverages at the bar.  This is just simple economics.  www.SalsaNewYork.com is not affiliated with any events or clubs;  we are just being realistic.
