Event 2017-04-30: Que-Rico monthly party at the Bedford in Balham!

Philip Frost and Miguel Mayana run a monthly salsa event at The Bedford in Balham which is one of my favourite venues. The main room for salsa is ideal: wooden dance floor, capacity for 250 dancers, excellent sound system, air conditioning that works and  free parking nearby for 250 cars! There are two other large rooms devoted to bachata and Cubana and the event is called Que Rico which means to a Spanish speaking salsa dancer something like: Isn’t it wonderful!

Above all the venue has a friendly atmosphere and attracts all the best dancers from miles around thus guaranteeing me my salsa fix many times over in one evening!  I usually aim to arrive around 10pm for the club dancing 🙂

Tonight it’s a smaller version on Bank Holiday Sunday with salsa in the theatre and Bachata in the upstairs room normally used for Cuban dancing.

Admission is £10
