    Thanks for the info :)

    I'd love to get some casino dancing in, but given that I'll be arriving in London after a 9 hour flight from India I'm thinking I might be too tired to make it. If I do end up going I'll let you know, would love to meet up :)

    No, only had a 24-hour layover in London, on my way back to the US from India.

    I'll be in town on Thursday, is the info still relevant for all the oarties and are they still the onee recommended? I'll also be glad to meet up with SF members at clubs while in town :)
     
  5. Assuming you don't dance cuban that shoul be it for central London.
    I just disagree with the "good venue" for El grande

    You dislike el grande?
     
  7. No but I wouldn't say the venue is great. It's actually not terrible but I'm not sure where else they could run such a big party in central London.
    The old place was a great venue but it's closed now.

    Is Bar Salsa on Thursday worth considering? I am definitely going to El Grande on Friday.

    Haven't been for years but Thursday was always considered one of the worst nights for good dancing at Bar Salsa.

    There is a guy who used to teach there who teaches some interesting/crazy moves. Never did his classes as it was not for me but he is fun to watch dance.

    Edit: Maybe it has improved though!

    There is a new event this Saturday that could be worth checking out due to a live band:

    The Vinyl Bar 2 -3 Old Change Court, London EC4M 8EN

    Doors Open 8pm
    8.30-9.30pm - Classes in Salsa & Bachata followed by dancing till 3am to salsa dura, salsa brava, latin jazz, bachata sensual, dominicana and merengue in town featuring live set by Quarto Elemento

    I've been to the venue (but not the party) before, and the floor was great.

    Sorry I haven't been out much, but if you are going to SOS, see you there :)

    Is SOS happening? I can't find a recent post by them/event. Would love to meet up. I should've checked yesterday, Salsa Fusion was nothing to write home about.

    Yes SOS is a weekly fixture and you can assume it's on unless they put up a notice saying it's not on ;)

    I wish I had taken notice of this prior to going out yesterday. But today at SOS was awesome, one of the best non-congress parties I have been to. I love the positive vibe in London, the gender balance creates a better atmosphere than lead/follow-heavy parties. Had great dances with Macmoto, she definitely knows her stuff! Tomorrow I guess I am bar-salsaing if anyone from SF is going would be happy to meet up.

    Back in Israel now, looking back I would definitely send people to SOS+TNT. El grande was ok as well. Salsa fusion is a total miss. Bar Salsa didn;t do much for me on Monday+Tuesday either. If I were more of a beginner/looking to pick up girls I am sure my preferences would have changed, except for about Salsa Fusion.

    Is there something better than Pexava next week? I'm pondering stay in London over weekend.

    London people - Forge is closing down, this Friday is the last ever Cuban Jam there. If any of you haven't been, this is your last chance, I highly recommend it, great DJ and always a great band performing.

    London people, my plan is Pexava tomorrow, ULU Saturday and SOS on Sunday. :)
