Café Latino (Coffee House / Amarillo) Mikonkatu 9, 00100 Helsinki + 358 10 7663 550 Fridays 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. A new addition to the Helsinki salsa life, but immediately very popular. This a Coffee Shop in the immediate centre of Helsinki that plays salsa, reggaeton, merengue etc. every Friday from 11 p.m. onwards, although the place itself is open (as a café) earlier too. It is usually very crowded, partly owing to the fact that it’s a quite small place, and the atmosphere is usually quite nice. The bar is well-equipped and the dance floor is good, even though it isn’t as big as in Club Havana. The entrance is free of charge, and the cloak-room charge is 1,5 €. In the same house, on the other side of the entrance is Amarillo, a nightclub with a questionable reputation, mainly because its visitors are so drunk. Venture there at your own risk. www.amarillo.fi/english (choose...
