UPDATE: This event is now held on Saturdays and is called Hot Salsa Saturday.
Hot Salsa Friday is one of the biggest dance events in the South Bay held at the D’venue (formerly the Dance Spectrum) in Campbell. HSF features beginning and intermediate dance lessons, a complimentary dinner, and dancing until 12am in the morning.
Hot Salsa Friday (aka HSF) is without a doubt one my favorite places to go salsa dancing in the Bay Area. Hosted on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Friday of every month, HSF is one of the biggest salsa events in the South Bay.
The event is held in the Dance Spectrum (edit: now D'Venue) in Campbell, which is a spacious dance studio so you have plenty of room to dance, with a great floor and plenty of parking. However, they aren't kidding when they say "Hot" Salsa Friday, so be sure to bring a towel or a change of clothes, because you will be sweating!
Hot Salsa Friday frequently has shows and performances from top Bay Area salsa teams as well as salsa competitions throughout the year. The dancing is great too, and you'll be able to find someone to dance with whether you're a beginner or a pro. I can't recommend this place highly enough.
Update: The event has been ending early lately (midnight) due to noise complaints. They are currently in the process of getting permits to stay open later, but until they do I'm docking a star for closing too early.
HSF draws a great crowd, and has a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Since HSF is an all ages venue (a ballroom with a huge dance floor), its also one of the few places that tends to draw a younger crowd and even offers a student discount with ID. The music gets better as the night goes on, and very much caters to the mambo dancers.
HSF has been around for many years, and is run by non other than Ricardo Sanchez, organizer of the SF Salsa Congress and US Open. As a result its a venue that really draws the bay area salsa community as a whole, and is popular with everyone from first timers to long time professional dancers.
