Copacabana, New York City
My first time here we were lucky enough to get on the guest list for this great club. Saved us the hassle of waiting on line as well as the admission price. I honestly really like the place. Upstairs is live music and dancing while downstairs is more of the DJ/mix club scene you are used to. It was great fun.
The other times I’ve been here we have stayed upstairs the whole time where they offer dinner and lessons for the price of admission. Traditionally it is only $10 per person on Tuesday nights. As a side note, they will have coupons on their website for $5 off this $10 for Tuesdays. The buffet and lessons are from 6-8pm.
Dress Code: Dress well here. No jeans and the like.
I went to Copacabana to get in the mood for Brazil which was my next stop..
The main floor is samba and salsa area, it helps if you already have a partner but if you`re an attractive gal then it wont be long before you get asked to dance
Unfortunately Im not an attractive girl so I went downstairs and danced to more traditional pop music. Maybe danced is an overstatement - I tried my best anyhows....
Upstairs house live salsa and Spanish music and dancing. Downstairs has more of the American DJ club scene. I love to watch the dancing upstair, they move so well. Would if I could;) Try to print out the discount that is sometimes available on the site.
Dress Code: No Jeans or No Sneakers or boots. Dress to impress

The apperance should be elegant as salsa dancers are used to.
The music will make you feel like you are in Cuba..yes this is little Havana, people! If you are into Latin music, this is the place for you!There are two floors of dancing. One is the salsa and merengue, with a live band. You will be captivated by watching the professionals on the dance floor. The dance floor is surrounded by tables which must be reserved in advance, but you don't really need a table unless you are going with a big group. Downstairs you can dance
to techno and house music. There are these nice velvet sofas where you can hang out, too. If you're in NYC, do not miss!
The Saturday night cover charge is $25...I found a coupon on the website for $10 off.

Really much fun. There is a salsa-place with live music and donwstairs you can dance to house, r&b and other genres.
On tuesday it opens at 6 and from 6 to 8 there is a free buffet. In the weekends it opens at 10
Dress Code: Don't forget to bring fancy shoes (that is actually a reminder for me..). Sneakers are not allowed. Nor are Jeans. And shirts for men need to have a collar.
My favorite club is Copacabana. It has two rooms/dance floors. 1/2 is house/club music the other is salsa and merengue. They bring top latin music live bands to play. Saturdays is very, very crowded.
Dress Code: Elegant clubwear
And of course the Copacabana girls that danced on many of the songs and mad me wish i had practised much, much more...
These are the Copacabana men.. they made great music and if only i hadn't need to wear those new shoes...
