Latin Quater/Columbus, Copenhagen
The Latin Quarter is an area in Copenhagen which is architecturally very beautiful, but the Latin Quarter is also a place to eat, drink, and dance. The dance place called Latin Quarter is not located in the Latin Quarter part of town, but rather in Nørrebro. Confused? Hope not, it's an easy place to find, and it's worth finding. In the downstairs cafe, you can get a simple meal (good though, they have great brunches) or tasty cocktails. Upstairs you can get dancing lessons (mainly salsa, but also some other types, like tango) by a great instructor, and dance on the dance floor to latin tunes once the nightclub opens. The place is small, but that's part of the charm of it, and the mood is very latino. I know nothing about dancing salsa, but still loved Latin Quarter because of it's atmosphere, and the greater variety and mix of different people who come there, including some amazing dancers to stare at in awe until you have the guts to try yourself...
Dress Code: It's not what you wear, it's how you dance...
As avid salsa dancers (and instructors) we had to check out the local scene. We were very impressed! The dancers are actually very good. There is a young and thriving salsa community here. We had such a blast! We haven't danced this much in so long! One night we went to Sabor Latino, we had great fun there. On another night we went to Restaurant Columbus, and were invited to be guest instructors for their salsa class. It was great fun. Also, the restaurant had really good food!
