We love salsa music.

The infectious rhythms. The audible textures. The delicate, soul-pleasing melodies that lure you onto the dancefloor.

We challenge you to think of one situation that wouldn’t be improved with a sensual salsa soundtrack.

Don’t believe us? We’ll prove it to you.

Here’s a selection of salsa covers of great pop songs that only got greater after the remixer added a twist of Cuban passion.

Bruno Mars – Uptown Funk

Remember the HUGE 2015 hit? Course you do. Now how do you make such a hit even bigger – let alone better?

Give it a Latin makeover, obviously. We didn’t think it was possible to want to dance to this song even more but, well. Have a little listen and see.

2. Daft Punk – Get Lucky

We guarantee you’ll be ‘up all night’ dancing to this Latin-enhanced masterpiece. Yes, you can thank us later.


3. Whitney Houston – I will always love you

Usually, this is the kind of song you go to when your heart is broken and you want to wallow in your sorrow.

Of course, after it’s been given a salsa twist, it’s transformed into the kind of song that mends your heart!


4. Coolio – Gangstas Paradise

Only salsa can transcend the dark subject matter of this track and turn it into such an uplifting anthem.


5. Chaka Khan – Ain’t Nobody

An irresistible song made even more moreish with a generous helping of salsa.


6. Michael Jackson – You Rock My World

Literally, the only way in the world to make the king of pop ‘pop’ even more.


7. Frank Sinatra – My Way

You haven’t ever heard Frank like this before, but once you do, you’ll never want to hear the original again!


8. The Beatles – Hey Jude

The best genre in the world meets the best band in the world – could you ask for a better combination?


The thing is, we don’t just write about how incredible Latin covers are.

We like to bring them to life in our bars.

We’re always inviting the best salsa bands from across the country to unleash their rhythms on our dancefloors. From classic Cuban standards to exciting covers of songs you know and love, we know you won’t be able to resist the live music we showcase.

Fancy it? Book a table – and don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes.
