ATTENTION SF Salsa Community: After doing further research and discussing with other promoters and team leaders, I have come to the conclusion that it is in our community’s best interest that we close Latin Wednesdays at El Valenciano for this week and the foreseeable future.
The novel corona virus was declared a pandemic, and all the experts indicate that taking pro active steps will help in reducing the transmission. I apologize for the late notice and ask that you share this message with the rest of our community. We will re-open as soon as possible! Please take care of yourselves and be aware that even if we are healthy as individuals there are people in our lives that are older and/or have health issues that transmission could be fatal for. Thank you for always supporting us and I look forward to dancing with you all again.
Wednesdays 8:30pm – 1:30am.
647 Valencia Street, San Francisco.
Hope to see you all tonight at Latin Wednesdays Salsa Y Bachata where spinning salsa dura / mambo hardcore for the dancers! Hope to see you there.
Don’t forget the slamming cocktails from El Valenciano Restaurant & Bar. See you there! In the heart of SF’s Mission District.
$12 CASH ONLY ALL NIGHT
ATM ACROSS THE CORNER AT MR. LIQUOR CONVENIENCE STORE.

About the Bouncer Emeritus
She’s mean but she has a nice smile. She’ll try not to flip out at people who sprinkle baby powder on the floor, those who crowd the entry way, and those who spill drinks on the Bouncer’s Table. For the sake of everyone’s sanity, don’t do those things.
