Salsa dancing every Friday night at the Mint Leaf restaurant (“Casa De La Musica”) in Berkeley, playing the best salsa and timba Cubana spun by DJ Antonio. Smooth floor, full bar, and late night dining menu.
Salsa dancing in an Indian restaurant? Only in the Bay Area!
The Mint Leaf is a nice little Indian bistro located on the outskirts of downtown Berkeley. Parking wasn't as bad as I expected, with plenty of street parking available right around the block.
The restaurant itself is very nice, with great decor and a solid floor for dancing. There is a bar right by the front entrance, and the alcohol prices were fairly reasonable, which for me is a big plus!
The actual dance floor itself is pretty tight, but most of the dancers were experienced enough that there were few crashes. The primary style of dancing here is Cuban, and I only found a couple of girls who followed slot dancing. The music was mostly Cuban salsa with a pinch of bachata, kizomba, and romantica.
Overall, Mint Leaf has a great atmosphere and it's a nice spot to check out on a Friday night if you enjoy Cuban salsa.
