Salsa In Kuala Lumpur: A Fine Selection Of The Best Spots

Where to go dance Salsa in Kuala Lumpur?

Last update on: Nov, 30th, 2011.

Following a nice encounter with a CUBAN salsa instructor in Kuala Lumpur (the inevitable Lingerto) here are some of the best spots for Salsa (and possibly other latin dances like Merengue and Bachata) in Kuala Lumpur City. (List may not be exhaustive).

Waste no more time, here’s the best Kuala Lumpur daily Salsa diet.
Lines with a “★★★” refer to truly happening nights.

★★★ Mondays at Shifz Grill, a few steps away from the McDonalds in Bangsar, KL.
Also got Bachata.
Rarely Merengue.
Directions: No 64 Jalan Maarof, Bangsar Baru, Kuala Lumpur. +6012-314-1668 (DJ Steiner)

Tuesdays @ G Point (formery Salsa Havana). Still a bit calm on late Nov 2011, maybe it was insanely calm tonight.
Apparently no cover charge. To be confirmed.
Some websites say Qba is every night but I have tried tonight (Tuesday) and at 11:30 it was not a Salsa night at all.

Wednesday @ Shivz Grill
(address above)
Cover Charge: 10RM.

★★★ Thursday: @ Qba, definitely. It’s at the Westin Hotel in Bukit Bintang area, near the Pavillon.
Some Bachata.
Rarely Merengue.
No sleeveless shirt.

No cover charge.
Directions: The Westin Kuala Lumpur, 199, Jalan Bukit Bintang

★★★ Friday @ Paradisso Club is nice. It feels like in an igloo due to the blue lights but dancing heats up the vibes.
Directions:
Paradisso Club (Lodge Paradize Hotel), No 2 Jalan Tengah, Intersection of Jalan Raja Chulan / Jalan Sultan Ismail

★★★ Saturdays @ Modestos. I have been there, I really liked this place, lots of room to dance and to relax, good DJs
Got Some Bachata.
First Drink Charge.
Directions : Cap Square Centre G33 Persiaran Capsquare, Kuala Lumpur – 03-2697-4020

Sunday @ Shivz Grill
(address above)

NOTA BENE: La Bomba has permanently closed (triple-confirmed) despite the door sign that says “closed for 15-day renovation”.

Salsa Power is partly obsolete, but great if you adventure yourself in unknown territories. At least you have something.

One thought on “Salsa In Kuala Lumpur: A Fine Selection Of The Best Spots

  1. According to an email I received from Juan-Jose Veredas (13/3/13), the G-Point is no longer playing Salsa. Also, if I may add:
    * The Venue (Pavillion) on Thursday nights,
    * Havana on Changkat Bukit Bintang on Tuesday nights are making a comeback.

    Yes, salsapower.com is only as good as when the moderator takes updates from their correspondents (me). They have updated 30% of what I sent this month (Mar’13). Still, the facebook groups are a very good resource to start with.
