Okay, it's not exactly a club. But the LoHi branch of Maria Empanada, the Denver restaurant group specializing in authentic Argentinian empanadas, is a fun and casual place to learn salsa and Bachata on Thursday evenings, and lessons are free. What's Bachata? It's a genre of Latin American music that originated in the Dominican Republic in the first half of the 20th century with Indigenous, African and European musical elements. The instructors, Nina Born and Nico Martinez, are known to Denver salsa lovers and make learning easy. Come with your favorite dance partner or come alone, having a partner isn't a requirement. These sessions are family-friendly, too. Lessons run from 5:30 p.m. to 6:15 p.m., followed by social dancing from 6:15-7:30 p.m. That gives dancers plenty of time to get over to La Rumba to continue the Salsa fun late into the evening.
- Dance Clubs: "Come for the dancing but indulge in the tasty empanadas, too. We all have different tastes, of course, but the corn empanada paired with the sweet chili mayo salsa is delish."
- Best for Dance Clubs Because: Salsa and Bachata lessons at Maria Empanada Riverview in LoHi are fun and free.
