Thank you for contributing to the list. Please include location, time, cover/parking charge, and dance style if possible. Preferably, the events should have plenty of people to dance with. No special or annual events please.

New York, New York:
Copacabana Times Square: every Tuesday and Friday 6pm-12:00am (LA/NY style salsa). No cover if registering as guest online and arriving before 10pm, $10-$15 otherwise. bottle water is $6. (** it ended up costing me $100+: $50 parking, $50 tolls, $20 water. so if you want to save money, don’t drive in NYC.)
Havana club: $6 cover, very small floor. dancers arrive after 11. hard to find parking.
the Salsa Room, almost everyday: $10-20 depending on their mood, good place for practicing belly dancing! seems like body-roll is all they do there. the women will reject you if you do a few patterns. lol. 2 thumbs down.
Nevada, Las Vegas:
Gold Coast casino: live band every Saturday night. $10 cover including 1 free drink.
New Jersey, Atlantic City:
Tropicana casino: every Friday/Saturday 11pm-4:00am. $10/$20 cover. (went on a Friday: serious dancing prohibited)
