For the absolute best New York-style salsa party in Frankfurt, you simply have to drop by Conexión on Saturday nights. For a € 7 cover charge you have access to two dance floors and some of the best salsa dancers in the city. Plus, a free glass of champagne and chips to snack on are included as you walk in the door…
Hit the small dance floor first to warm up with a few spicy bachata dances, or work your hips with merengue. Then grab a quick drink at the bar to refresh and head over to the second (much larger) dance room, where the salseros are.
If you’ve come early, from 20:30 – 21:30 there is a free beginner salsa lesson. Once you’ve finished with that, take your new skills and warm up for an hour or so until the floor starts getting crowded. No partner? Don’t be shy – just ask someone who looks like they know what they’re doing to show you a few moves!
If you’re in luck (or if you like to plan and check Conexión’s website in advance), there might even be a show to watch. The club often showcases performances from dance groups in and around Frankfurt for no extra charge.
Though it’s not directly in the city center, Conexión can be easily reached by taking the metro line U6 to the station Fischstein; it’s just across the street.
