    I will be at a conference in Denver at the end of October and will stay at the Hyatt Regency downtown. I don't know if I will have time to check out the salsa scene but would like to be prepared, haha.

    Which clubs are recommendable on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights? Are there clubs that play mostly salsa? I prefer Puerto Rican salsa, by the way.

    I saw there is a Samba Room in Denver. The Samba Room in Orlando, FL, has great salsa on Fridays and Saturdays in a separate room. Does the Samba Room in Denver have salsa nights or is this predominantly a restaurant?

    When I'm going to travel I check the salsapower salsa cities section. Not sure if it's 100% up-to-date but it's a place to start.

    Yes, I already did that and always check the Internet first. However, often those sites are not up to date. And also, one does not know what music mixture those clubs play. I was hoping that there might be salseros from the Denver scene here who can recommend places.

    Contact Eric Freeman from salsaville. He should be up to date. I've never heard anyone mention the samba room though.

    Saturday at Parc 55- Two rooms, here there was a real error, during the night time shows in the bachata room they did the shows to one end of the room (as a pose to the middle dance floor) and basically if you didn't get there when they started you couldn't see a damn thing, pretty terrible for people that cared about the shows and a few people even said in my presence "never again will I come here". I didn't care and went down to the salsa room. The salsa room was probably the most happening on saturday night with lots of talent. Tito Garcia was ok that night but I've heard him do better, I went upstairs to catch some Domenic Marte and I thought there was extremely weird feedback with the sound system/acoustics of the live show and so I left since I couldn't get into it, which was just as well as I mentioned with the salsa room being strong.

    Hi, I will be in Denver from September 26th to October 10th. Planning on hitting the Salsa congress but would love info about clubs, preferably serious Linear style and bachata ones rather than casual pickup bars. I would also be happy to meet up with SF members in the area :)
