• Will these nights go back to Casa Publica?

At some point we will, however due to the currently climate, which affects many busineses and their functionality. Unfortunately this has affected bars including staffing issues for events like this. For now these Friday events are running Salsa Latina until we can hold these events again. Please do join our newsletter below for when things change, you will be notified.


• Do I need a Mask or CVC?

No, and no need to wear entering either, it's also not recommended for dancing. ... read more >
