Babaluu Salsa

Babaluu Salsa Club (also spelled Babalu'u and Babaluus) is one of the most famous salsa hot spots in Toronto. Located in the heart of Yorkville, a trendy upscale downtown area around Bloor and Yonge, Babaluu is a small intimate club for an exciting evening of Latin dancing.

Babaluu Salsa Club opened its door in 1993. With almost twenty years of business under its belt, the club is still extremely popular. With a great restaurant that focuses on Latin fusion cuisine, they have many specialty items such as their Lemon Chicken Platter, Seafood Platter, Paella and Peruvian Chicken.

The dance floor at Babaluu Salsa Club is very small and the ceilings are quite low as it is located in the basement of a small building so expect some bumping while you are salsa dancing. It can also get quite hot in such a small space but they do have a patio that dancers can cool off on at the front of the club.

There are some rules to keep in mind if you plan on dining at Babaluu Salsa Club. A minimum of $45 dollars consumption per person is applicable on Fridays and Saturdays.
For group bookings of 6 or more, a deposit request is in effect. For diners and dancers, there is a dress code in effect with no running shoes, no baseball or other sport caps, and no sleeveless shirts for men. In addition, they will ask you to check all coats and bags at the door so make sure you leave your valuables at home. They are strict with enforcing their policies so keep these in mind.

For serious salsa dancers, Tuesdays and Wednesdays are the best evenings to attend Babaluu Salsa Club. These evenings are geared towards those who dance regularly and want to spend the evening on the dance floor. Weekend evenings tend to feel more like a regular club with some Top 40, Hip Hop and Reggaeton music played in addition to the usual Latin styles.
