Latin Dance Venues in Brisbane

Name Location Evaluation / Times

BRISBANE DOWNTOWN

My home from 2023-onwards

Cloudland - Soul'Sa

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (web)

641 Ann St, Fortitude Valley


Brisbane, Fortitude Valley

Evaluation:
This event is awesome! It starts with a couple or a single guy leading the whole floor in a salsa dance (all facing the same way). Super crowded but fun. Eventually, the band comes on, and it's still crowded - almost an issue, but if you wanted a better dance you could go upstairs for more room (and still hear the music). This venue is mostly a fancy restaurant or club at night (quiet or crowded depending on the night), but on Thursday nights transforms into salsa with a live band (video).
Open:
Thursday nights with dance class from 8:30 pm – 9:10 pm... $15 entry after 8:30 pm.


The Sound Garden - Salsa Sundays

⭐⭐⭐⭐⬜ (web)

312-318 Brunswick St


Brisbane, Fortitude Valley

Evaluation:
The description is: "Do you love to have a groove, get those hips swinging, and dance into the night!?". I went and it's really fun.. they have a good sized area downstairs and in early 2024 started playing bachata separately in the upstairs area. Great crowd. Quite lively (40+ people) for a sunday as the night progresses.
Open:
Sunday nights with (free?) salsa class from 8:00 pm in the downstairs area.


Hey Chica - Salsa Wednesday

⭐⭐⭐⭐⬜ (web)

T11-14/315 Brunswick Street


Brisbane, Fortitude Valley

Evaluation:
Fun little dance venue with "DJs playing the best salsa and bachata... bookings advised". I think they like you to eat dinner there, then join the dancing.
Open:
Wednesday nights with salsa/batchata dancing from 8:00 pm to midnight.


Fellons Barrel Hall - El Timbon - Once a Month Salsa

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (web)

5 Boundary St


Brisbane, Fortitude Valley

Evaluation:
Lots of people call this their absolute favourite event! Sadly it's only once a month and I don't think it's predictable timing, so you will have to check the Felon's FB or https://www.facebook.com/gus.cereijo for an El Timbon entry like this.
Open:
Once-a-month Sunday afternoon till late with band El Timbon.


BRISBANE - WEST

The Gap etc

Destino Latin Dance (lessons)

⭐⭐⭐⭐⬜ (web)

Rivercity Family Church, 59 Settlement Rd


The Gap

Evaluation:
Described as "fun and friendly social Latin dancing", this is more a dance lesson than salsa, but it's a nice venue and instructors Diego Fajardo and Katya Guerra will get your legs moving. Depending on when you show up might be 10-40 people (hard to say), and a slightly older crowd but really fun.
Open:
Tuesday nights with beginner salsa from 7pm, then 8pm a very short salsa leading into more advanced lessons. Is $20 for one lesson, $40 for two, or there are passes available.
