Bachata By The Beach

Where: Bacchus Bar, 253 Esplanade, Henley Beach

When: The last Sunday of every month from 3:30pm til late

Entry Fee: Free

Host: La Bomba

Styles: Mainly Bachata and every now and then there are a few salsas.

Overall it's a very relaxed and casual affair with most of the crowd in jeans and flat shoes. The attendees are all very friendly and quick to compliment one another's dancing and are generally a slightly older crowd than what you might find at some other latin nights which is nice. 30, 40 and 50 something all dancing together and enjoy Latin tunes and good wine. Can get very crowded so get in early if you really want to dance!

A relaxed and welcoming dance night with modern music in a fresh and modern studio. The fully liquor licensed bar sets this one apart.
