Chicago Urbanite: Where to dance Salsa in Chicago?

salsa-dancingI recently met a girl who is new to Chicago and who has the Salsa bug. During the month she has been here, she has been paying full price to get in anywhere. I promised her that I would give her the scoop on how to get in to most of these places for free or by paying half price. So this post is for you Anna, and for anyone who wants to experience the Chicago Salsa scene. Keep on reading and get your salsa shoes ready to dance and to get free Salsa lessons every night of the week. These listings are subject to change, so it is recommended to contact the club or the promoter to confirm. Also, click here to read about Proper Dance Floor Etiquette before you go dancing.
