Salsa in the City

Posted By on Thu, Sep 28, 2006 at 12:16 PM

Though Ohio City may have celebrated when Moda, West 25th Street's hottest club, shut down this summer, the rest of us were suffering. Okay, so the nightly brawls, gunfits, and the owner's conviction on money laundering charges may have created small problems, but the club also provided the best place in town to learn salsa dancing. Without it, where were we supposed to get our sweaty, drunken, Dirty Dancing groove on? Thankfully, View on Prospect Avenue has stepped up to the plate. The club now hosts dance lessons on Friday nights at 9 p.m., for a $5 cover. Granted, the live band and disco ball that made Moda feel like 1950s Havana are gone, but the enthusiastic instructors (including the ever-popular Carlos) are back. Next Friday, the club is even hosting a party after salsa lessons at City Hall. That's right, Mayor Frank Jackson thinks he's Patrick Swayze now. Let's just hope he doesn't try to dress the part. -- Lisa Rab
