It's a bit expensive but the atmosphere is pretty good. Great venue - Highball Express is a Cuban themed bar with a huge range of rum.

Mostly salsa and bachata music with occasional zouk. There are usually all types of dancers here, newbies, dance teachers, and latinos who bring the real South American style. Very relaxed and friendly atmosphere, and plenty of people to ask to dance or chat with.
