Toronto is a great place for Salsa dancing. There are various dance clubs and social outings. Here are some places to consider for salsa dancing while in Toronto:

Monday nights: Allycatz night club.

Located in the Yonge and Eglinton area in the upper part of downtown Toronto. This place is pretty small and does not attract too many people but still they play salsa and it's ok to go to.

Wednesdays : Babaluu Supper Club.(It is now closed, unfortunately )

Thursdays El Rancho. Best salsa on Thursdays nights, on 430 College St, Toronto. Food is not the best, but the salsa is good and they have 2 floors with different latin music.

Friday nights: Social Dance Spot

There is a great Friday night Salsa social every week at " Social Dance Spot " dance studio located on St. Clair Avenue and Dufferin Street area (1209 St. Clair Ave West). This is a leading Toronto dance school specializing in Latin Salsa (LA, Cuban, Rueda, On2 etc), Balroom and hip-hop dancing that has a salsa social every Friday. They play a mixture of Salsa and Batchata. Most people go here for a great night of social dancing  (Cuban salsa) and Batchata. The people are real friendly and you can also do some Casino Rueda here. This is one of  the favorite places to go social dancing in Toronto.

Saturdays: Lula lounge

Located in the west end of Toronto and has a live band. The floor is slanted and the club is located in a shady part of town, but never the less they play good salsa music and a more Latin flavour here.  You can expect the cover charge to be at least $15, more if it is a special night.

You can also try El Rancho on Saturday. This club is located downtown Toronto close to "Little Italy". This club plays Salsa, Batchata and other Latin hits and caters to an older crowd. It's known to be "meat market" or a pickup joint and does not really cater to the better dancers.

Sundays: Babaluu Supper Club used to be in the Yorkville district, but now it is closed. Dovercourt house has weekly salsa socials on Sundays 7:00pm and they typically get pretty good dancers. Dovercourt house is located at 805 Dovercourt Road , and costs around 8$ to get in.
