Our Review:

This is a really fun event, and one of the top dance spots on a Sunday night in the City. Hot Bachata Nights takes place at the spacious A3 Atmosphere which has 2 bars and a nice lounge area on the 2nd floor.

One of the coolest things about the place is that it has 3 dance floors, 1 for salsa, 1 for bachata, and 1 for kizomba. They also have lessons earlier in the evening if you want to learn the steps.

The downside of HBN is that it definitely attracts more bachata dancers than salseros-- the bachata room is always packed compared to the salsa room. But if you love dancing lots of bachata with a helping of salsa & kizomba on the side, then Hot Bachata Nights is one of the best places to be.

Never miss another salsa event!

Soooo, went here for the first time last night…

– if you go before the party begins, cover is 20… As they presume you are there for class too. Lady at the door let us in for 10 at about 8:39pm as we weren’t going to take a class.
– Classes, kizomba on the main floor. Teacher seems kind, average kizomba dancer. Upstairs is some sort of salsa, teacher was condescending, with the “me you will never dance like me attitude”.
– Dancing, the bachata definitely kicked things up a notch. Great salsa music. DJ kept it fresh.
– Crowd: very clicky, if you didn’t know anyone, you stood alone. The egotistical Salsa instructor thought it was ok to keep bumping into us as we stood at a corner of the bar. When we informed him he was bumping into us, he ignored us, and continued twirling girls into our faces, no apologies, none.

Will I return? HEEEELLLLLL NO! I will go to Cigar bar down the street any day. Better attitude, cooler people, sweet ambiance, and there is a chance I may actually make some friends…

Super Disappointed!!

This is the main Sunday night party in SF and people keep on coming back so you know it must be decent! Nice venue with two bars, a big bachata room, a smaller salsa one, and and intimate kizomba room. Since I like to dance salsa and kizomba, I regularly attend this event.
This is definitely the place to go the bachateros/as out there. The salsa level is intermediate with a couple of more advanced dancers showing up regularly. I like the fact that the three dance styles are in one place so salseros, bachateros and kizombeiros can mix. I think it is always good to be open minded and versatile enough to not stick with one style of dance.
Dancers are pretty “Bay Area” like. Not mean, not extra friendly/smiley either, somewhere in the middle. You might feel a little lonely if you are a newcomer but keep on dancing and people will open up.

My favorite spot to go on Sunday nights! This is a great place to go if you love bachata & kizomba. Great instructors and good dancers in a friendly atmosphere. Salsa dancing is a bit hit or miss, not always a lot of good dancers. Great place overall!
