Rumba 54 (the old Montas Lounge) has converted pretty thoroughly on peak weekend nights to a young Latin scene, complete with long lines and sonic domination by the latest in reggaeton/house blends.
For old school salsa lovers though, Betto Herrera is reviving the Sunday salsa social at this venue, a tradition going back to the days when it was Montas Lounge.
Rumba 54 (2223 E. Hwy 54)
Sundays, 6:00-10:30 pm.
FREE; an optional lesson at 6 pm costs $5.
Betto says the party, which started shortly before Christmas, is picking up steam. The director of Mambo Dinamico Dance Company, Betto also organizes a very popular Tuesday social at Carmen's Cuban Cafe. See calendar for details.
