We have heard from numerous sources that Cafe Cocomo will be closing down for good after this weekend.
We first reported that Cocomo would be closing back in June, as the location was sold to developers for the construction of new condos. However, the closing date was pushed back multiple times due to permits and other issues, and last we heard that Cocomo might even be open until November.
However, it now appears that this week will officially be the last week for Cocomo, and the building is scheduled to be torn down, bringing an end to one of the most iconic salsa dancing venues in the Bay Area.
The management of Cocomo is planning on openning a new venue called “Playa SF” near Fisherman’s Wharf at 2801 Leavenworth Street. There is no word yet on what events are planned for this new venue, but we will keep you posted on the details (here is the full announcement from Cocomo).
In the meantime, if you want to enjoy dancing at Cocomo one last time, this week is the week to do so.
