Hi everyone!

2 of my students go to Chalkers Pool Hall on Wednesday nights to practice salsa. Has anyone tried it? It is mid town and plays salsa on Wednesdays.

Would like to hear feedback if anyone has it!

I've heard of Chalkers on the jazz station I listen to, and heard they have some pretty good musicians there...

I did NOT know they had salsa on Wednesdays! WHere is this club and who's been to check it out?

I am going there every Wednesday and I just love it!   There are 2 hour complimentary lessons (7-9PM) - merenge, bachata and salsa with Terry Zee and Julio Pena from Dance Casino Rueda, and a live Colombian band La Nueva Revelacion, playing amazing salsa and merenge from 9:00 PM till midnight.   Very nice place, wonderful vibe and a good tile floor.   However, the dance floor is not too big and it is pretty packed recently.   The Chalkers owner mentioned about an idea to expand the dancing floor and it will be fantastic!

This is interesting - too bad it is only favourite night for dancing at babaluus. Maybe will check out soon. Any other new clubs???

Has anyone been to the Old Mill for their salsa nights on Fridays?

I go there once in a while. I knew about the place when Toronto Salsa Practice had an outing out there. That was about a month ago (or maybe more). Then there were mostly old people taking lessons. Currently there is a good mix of old and young crowd. The last couple of times I've been there, it's been enjoyable.
