Salón Los Ángeles

Dancing in Mexico City

Fans of dance-hall music shouldn’t miss the outstanding orchestras or the graceful dancers who fill the vast floor of this atmospheric ballroom from 1937. The live music, consisting of salsa and cumbia (dance music originating in Colombia) on Sunday and swing and danzón on Tuesday, draws a mostly older crowd. It’s located in the rough Colonia Guerrero, so take an authorized taxi or Uber.

Two-hour dance classes are offered on Monday at 6pm and Tuesday at 4pm.
