Hello,

I'm an avid traveller and salsero from Mexico living/working in Germany. While travelling to Russian speaking countries I discovered this website and it helped me find out where to go dancing. As a logical consequence I want to inform travellers from abroad about the salsa clubs in Hamburg and - very important - keep it updated (It sucks going to a place just to find out that it doesn't exist anymore).

Hamburg has a big social dance scene and you can find every day a place to dance. Almost all salseros in Hamburg dance on1 (Cuban style or L.A.) and on every party almost 50% of the music is salsa, 35% Bachata and 15% Merengue.
Here are the parties that take place on a weekly basis. All these places are special dancing bars/clubs for salseros, except Grosse Freiheit 36, in this place you will find more "normal" people (without real dancing skills) than salseros.
