The Yerba Buena Social Club is one of my favorite salsa dancing events, period. YBSC has built a reputation as one of the top salsa socials in the Bay, and though it's changed locations a few times over the past year, the organizers have always found great places to host the social.
The latest home of the Yerba Buena Social Club is Space 550 in San Francisco, which is a great, spacious venue and a worthy successor to Cafe Cocomo, the former capital of salsa in SF.
Space 550 features 3 rooms for dancing-- the main salsa room, a merrengue room, and a hot & steamy (literally) bachata room. 550 also has a full bar (essential) with very reasonably priced drinks for San Francisco.
The dancing at YBSC is top notch, and the event always draws a big crowd with a mix of both beginners and more advanced dancers. Other venues can be a bit hit-or-miss when it comes to good dancers, but I always have great dances when I come to YBSC. The venue is also far enough away from downtown so you don't get the random bar crowd like you see at other events. Everyone is there to dance.
Yerba Buena Social Club also has live music on most nights, which is a plus if you enjoy dancing to live music, and it helps to keep the SF salsa music scene alive.
My only complaint with this location is that the parking is a little sketchy (similar to Cocomo) and it can get a little drafty by the bar, so you'll want to bring a jacket to keep you warm while you're getting a drink.
Beyond those minor quibbles, YBSC is a fantastic event, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to go salsa dancing on Saturday nights.
Never miss another salsa event!
