Cafe Cocomo Closing For Good After This Weekend

Posted September 10, 2014 by

Cafe Cocomo Closing Down

We have heard from numerous sources that Cafe Cocomo will be closing down for good after this weekend.

We first reported that Cocomo would be closing back in June, as the location was sold to developers for the construction of new condos. However, the closing date was pushed back multiple times due to permits and other issues, and last we heard that Cocomo might even be open until November.

Kizomba Dancers

Do you dance Kizomba? Kizomba is a sensual dance from Angola that is gaining in popularity in the Bay Area and around the world. Although not technically a Latin dance, kizomba music is often played at events that play salsa and bachata, and there are a number of festivals in the Bay Area just for kizomba!

Due to the growing popularity of this dance, we have created a new Kizomba Events Calendar where you can find a list of all kizomba lessons and events in the Bay Area! Although it’s not salsa, it’s a great dance to add to your dance repertoire. As always, let us know if we missed any events!
