A cool bar & lounge located in Mountain View with a great instructor and chill atmosphere. Plenty of seating, a full bar, and live bands of Friday nights. Music is a mix of salsa and bachata, with a sprinkling of cha cha and merrengue.

Albertos is a fun place to go dancing salsa. Pantea, the instructor there, is really great, and teaches some fun patterns as well as basic body movement. The venue is nice as well, with a lounge area to relax in, as well as a full bar.
The atmosphere at Albertos really depends on which night you go on.
Tuesday is the quietest night, with a good crowd coming out for the lesson, but not as many staying for the dancing afterwards. They do offer a $7 discount for students on Tuesdays though.
Thursday night is the best night to go dancing, and always draws a large crowd of dancers, with a good mix of both beginner and advanced dancers.
Friday night is the rowdiest night, and there is usually a live band playing. However, usually on Fridays there are a lot of people that are just out looking to drink and party, so it's not as good for dancing.
Overall, Albertos is one of my favorite places to go salsa dancing in the South Bay.
Alberto's is a cool venue in a great location that has really picked up in recent years. The music tends to steer more toward the "Romantic" side of salsa, meaning it's generally a bit slower than the harder hitting "Salsa Dura."
Alberto's is not the place to go if you're looking for "hardcore dancing" but it's a fun club with a very beginner-friendly vibe, and one of the best all around venues in the South Bay. Thursday night is highly recommended.
