For those who appreciate the intimacy of dancing, San Diego offers a handful of places for you to get your fix. In this piece, we’ll touch on the best places to dance in San Diego. From Bachata to Salsa, we have you covered!

One way to start your week off right is to hit up Cafe Sevilla, located in San Diego’s famous Gaslamp Quarter. This vibrant cafe caters to crowds that love to move their feet and feel the rhythm of the music. With lessons on bachata, salsa, and merengue, every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Cafe Sevilla is one of San Diego’s most popular dance spots. Whether you bring a partner or not, you’re sure to meet fellow dancers and make connections that last for a long time! The dancing community in San Diego is strong, and it is not unusual to see the same faces at different venues! This dance club also features bottle service and VIP treatment for those looking for a more upscale experience!

For those who like to line dance, look no further than Moonshine Beach. This hopping bar offers weekly line dancing lessons on Tuesdays, and also features special DJ performances throughout the week. Whether you’re a seasoned dancer, or new to the activity, take on the chance to learn how to line dance at Moonshine Beach! You’re bound to meet some interesting people, and have fun dancing the night away! If you’re a music lover, make sure to hit up Moonshine Beach for their many country music shows!

One more spot we love for those nights when you’re craving some salsa or bachata dancing is Tango Del Rey. With the word ‘tango’ in its name, this beautiful dance hall also is a place for you to get your tango on. Its awe-inspiring Spanish architecture, and over 5,000 square feet of space make Tango Del Rey a must-visit! For those that are not as seasoned, they offer lessons in the tango, bachata and salsa. We love their Wednesday nights for dancing bachata! There is a fee to enter, so check their website before heading on over!
