But sometimes they organize concerts of salsa bands, so it is a good idea to have a look at their Facebook page.

  1. Hello! Thanks for the information!
    I noticed almost all of those are Cuban places. Do you know of any place to dance L.A. or NY style salsa in Rome?

    • Hello Tom,
      In Rome is more common to dance Cuban Salsa, even if in the last years it’s getting more popular, most of the schools still teach cuban salsa, therefore, most of the salsa events are cuban and not linea.
      The best opctios is Palacavicchi, because is always at leats 1 dance floor of linea. Or you can also check on the club pages on facebook for special linea events, but they are less. Hope you have fun!
