Guadalajara is more than mariachi music and tequila. There are many other rhythms and kinds of music to be found in the city, and one of the favorites for Tapatíos is salsa. Here are the best places to dance and hear salsa in Mexico’s second largest city.
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.
Right on Chapultepec Avenue, one of the most vibrant areas in Guadalajara, this place has a Cuban feel, with old cars and the music, food, and drinks to transport you directly to La Habana. A great venue for having fun with friends or to meet someone.
