This place gets packed!! Salsa night at Vinnie's brings out a huge Latino crowd, which is great because there are plenty of people to dance with, but it can get so crowded that you can barely walk around, let alone dance.

On the plus side there's no cover and the drinks are affordably priced, although it can take a while to get your drink at the bar because there are so many people.

The music is a mix of salsa, bachata, merrengue, and reggaeton, but the small dance floor doesn't provide much space to dance.

Vinnie's is a good place to go to if you just want to take a free salsa lesson and grind with people in a night club style atmosphere, but as far as actual salsa dancing goes, it's hard to do much more beyond the basics.

Night club atmosphere, very busy place (especially at the bar) around 10:30pm-2am. Good DJ and lots of dancing. Variety of Reggie, Salsa, Bachata, and contemporary music.Gets quite crowded, hot, and music is loud. Some good dancers. Casual place with a separate pool room. Free parking, lots of nearby restaurants, and very close to BART.
Lessons at 8pm.

This place gets PACKED with a wide variety of people from 10:30pm – 2am. Serious dancers should show up early (around 9pm) and enjoy the allotted space while it’s available. The first thing you see as you walk in is the dance floor… you’re on it… try not to bump into anyone. Nice place, okay crowd, and good drinks. Not a bad Thursday night hangout.

Love this place! Been going for the last 2 years every Thursday! Great salsa dancing for all ages! The over 30 come at 9pm and the under 30 come after 11pm. So we all get what we want with DJ Eddie Torres, the best DJ in the bay area! Casual attire and great cheap drinks! The Bar staff and Security staff are the best in town! Can’t say enough good things about this place!
