    Hi everyone,
    We are salsa group from Bulgaria and we want to make a team building in Istanbul next april. I know that it is very early, but it is complicated to organize salsa team building without knowing in witch days there are salsa parties. I have read previous commentaries - Fridays and Saturdays are good for salsa parties and most of them are around Taksim?

    Bringing out an old post, it seems that the Salsa in Istanbul is a happening place! There is a good chance I'm am going to be there from June 27th-30th (Mon-Thurs) and I'm really excited to see the city for the first time and also to check out the local salsa scene. I am interested in staying the extra night on Wednesday for the salsa at 'My house' - is this still ongoing for 2016?

    I do have a few concerns since I will be traveling by myself for the last day or two:
    From the previous posts here, it seems that on1 is also welcomed by the community?
    How is the transportation from Taksim to Istanbul at 1am in the morning?
    Any general tips for a female traveling solo in the area?

    Thanks so much!

    hi @mlemonl
    Please remind me when the date approaches, then I'll be able to share more up to date party information.
    MyHouse is cancelled but we have some other parties in Wednesday.
    Apart from then Fridays and Saturdays are lively.
    ON1 is the dominant style here.
    Transportation depends where you stay. Parties generally finish after 2am. You'll need to use taxi. Or you can rent a hostel room in Taksim.


    Regards,
    ilker

    Please I
    need to know the Salsa Nights' weekly schedule in Istanbul. I will attend Istanbul Salsa Festiv in Pendik and I'm thinking to extend for more 3 days, but need to make sure first that there are running nights at these days.

    Thanks,
