The Scene

Just a little way past the pedestrian walkway of Rue Masséna sits La Havane, an upscale salsa venue offering live Latin music and dancing almost every night of the week.

Just a little way past the pedestrian walkway of Rue Masséna sits La Havane, an upscale salsa venue offering live Latin music and dancing almost every night of the week.

Tiki-style umbrellas on the patio put the high energy patrons in an island state of mind, while inside, the red lighting, Latin beats, palm trees, tropical birds, and murals of Cuban life inspire even the wallflowers to join the talented salsa dancers demonstrating their sensual moves on the dance floor.

Those who need a little extra push, however, can pick up some tips from the international dance competitions that are projected on the back wall or head to the second floor for a bird’seye view of the action below.

Early evenings draw a sizable crowd that shows up to savor the wonderful Cuban/Caribbean menu and slow-dance to the more romantic tunes, but by 10pm, the upbeat salsa music and the well-dressed, international clientele it attracts definitely take over to create a fun-loving atmosphere.

From a delectable dinner to a few animated hours on the dance floor, La Havane is a festive place to spend the whole evening.

HOT BLOOD SALSA DANCERS
Sabina B. Oct 3, 2013
The place was made for people with hot blood, people who like to be sexy and beautiful and people who like sexy moves of salsa. It is a colourful bar with a good quality but pricy cocktails. They do have salsa classes and salsa parties that take you for a imaginary trip to the Caribbean. Good vibe, sexy people , sexy music and delicious cocktails. All you need for one night. CONs It is little out of the city centre if you wanna change the venue or go elsewhere after your classes. It is pricy. PROs Good vibe, something unusual, delicious cocktails
For Salsa Lovers
Tara R. Dec 12, 2012
I’m a girl who loves her salsa, so even though this was the only place that ever carded me in Nice—and of course the day I had forgotten to bring my ID—it still holds a special spot in my heart. I took a salsa lesson here, which came with a free drink and had me doing the merengue from one side of the room to the other by the time it was over. A lot of the locals are regulars and amazing dancers, and will spin you around to show you some steps as soon as the class is over.
