Friendly place to start the night. That's a dancing place too. I you are into salsa, bachata or merengue, you will find some dancers (males) from the staff to show you how to dance. If you're a male, you won't have any problem to find a girl to teach you how to dance.

This gig is open 7 days a week for people that want to experience local music, dancing and drinks. A good mix of locals / expats and of course professional ladies ... All of which want to dance. Good times!

The best place for BACHATA, MERENGE and other dances :-) It´s a nice club, where are a great performances. There was always fantastic atmosphere:-) These dancers stay there and they dance with turists. So it was perfect for us, we could learn more steps:-)

We went to La Bodega to listen to music and dance. It was a great time. The club has dance instructors that work for the club. They are in the club teaching people how to dance which was fun to watch. Very good people watching. Strong drinks although we didn't realize it until later!

My boyfriend is an accomplished Salsa & Bachata Dancer, so we went here several times during our stay in Las Terrenas. Overall the place itself is fine and the mix of Latin music is good for our style of dancing. The drinks were overpriced & you had to hustle for your change. It was obvious that part of the place...

Good for dancing Bachata, Merengue and Salsa on the nights with the dance school dancers, however, not before 10 pm. General atmosphere is ot very cosy but OK. There are some hookers later in the night but we didn't find it really annoying having those jinetera girls looking for clients as they behaved quite decent. There are other locations like... More

I like that the come and ask for a dance, after one song they say thank you and you go back to your place. Nice! But there are also many sex-tourists who are looking for the hookers there, which I don't like. But all in all I enjoyed the stay.

The music was ok but the bar was very dark. Every working girl and guy in town was there looking for a date for the night. Every two minutes someone is asking you to buy them a drink. I would not return with girlfriend or with friends that do not know the Dominican well. Had to ask three times to... More

This bar is quite rustic but sounds very Dominican. You do not need to be an expert of latin dance to dance here. No body will judge you. Take a cuba libre (with rhum) and you will be ready for the Merengue (easy dance, looks like zouk 2 steps) bachata (a little harder but you can manage it) Salsa too... More
