Salón Corona

Salón Corona opened just a few years ago, but immediately this place has become a reference for salsa in Guadalajara. It has the name of the very well-known Mexican beer, so you can imagine that you will enjoy a good drink while dancing and having fun with friends and the new people you can meet there.
