Save to wishlist

Some places excel in the dining aspects, while others are known for good music, and Nacional 27 is a rare find that does everything extremely well. Come during the day at off-peak times to taste their amazing Latin-fusion cuisine, and return on the weekends for a party that never stops. Their DJs play a wide range of mixes from cultures throughout Latin America, and it’s a terrific place to pack in the food and then dance all of your troubles away.

Congas

Save to wishlist

Friday and Saturday nights are their special salsa nights, but Congas is worth a visit any day of the week. They serve an inclusive Latin menu from the likes of Colombia, Cuba, Peru, and many others. Make the trip to Norwood Park, and join them for a special event, rent out their space or call them for catering.

Good to know that you can take time out and salsa once in a while...
