Dance Floor(s): (1) Nice large oak hardwood dance floor. Unknown (2) dance floors. Otherwise unkown. Unknown My guess would be a portable dance floor since it is an occasional outside event. However, I have not been to this event before. Allegro ballroom has 4 floors; 2 huge floors, a smaller junior ballroom floor and a smaller practice room. The main floors are huge with beautiful floors. There are 4 dance floors at this venue. The Salsa dance floor is nicely sized. Dance opposite of the stage if you want air conditioned air, otherwise it can get pretty warm out there. The bachata floor is much smaller. Generally, it gets very crowded in there, like body to body crowded, which also makes it quite warm. Expect to get very little space on the floor in this room.
Ages: 18+ Uknown 18+ 18+ Unknown. Possibly all? All! 21+
Crowd: Davis is a college town, so you can expect a good amount of college aged people there, but there are middle-aged adults there as well. Sometimes there are really good dancers there, and there are always beginners there too. While some people are “just checking it out”, most people are there to dance. Even if you go by yourself, you’ll have plenty of people to dance with. Just remember while out there with the other beginners to keep your own space as best you can. Uknown Unknown I haven’t been here before, so I’d go with whatever you would wear to an average Salsa club. Unknown The people here are dancers and are there to dance. There are dancers of varying levels, so expect them to have a general sense of rules of the dance floor. Crowd is 21 and over. Good mix of ages, but probably none to few over late 50’s. This is the spot where the “dancers” frequent, so expect to see some pretty decent dancers out there, and of course beginners as well. The better dancers know how to keep their space and of course will expect you to keep your space as well. There are a few there just to “check out the salsa club” and drink as well, but most people there are there to dance!
What to Wear: It runs the gamut. Some people choose to dress up a bit. Others choose to keep it casual. Unkown. Go with what one might normally wear to a Salsa night. I haven’t been here before, so I’d go with whatever you would wear to an average Salsa Club. I haven’t been here before, so I’d go with whatever you would wear to an average Salsa club. I haven't been here before, but the venue is outside, so dress for the weather and for dancing. I haven’t been to a Salsa night at Allegro in some time, but when I was going the attire ran the gamut from very casual to more dressy. Regardless of what you wore, if you were willing to go out in public like that, you were probably ok. If you go middle of the road, you can’t go wrong. Dress moderately well. Ladies could wear a dress or skirt, but they don’t have to, to fit in. Men: Wear a nice pair of jeans with a nice button up.
Other Offerings: It’s a bar, sports, hang out, dance place. They have a menu with burgers, sandwiches, pizzas and salads which includes other things like fries, mozzarella sticks and other fried things. There are also a few billiard tables. Well, it's a steakhouse so….. Unknown They have a bar. Otherwise unknown. Unknown This location offers other styles/ nights of dancing as well. Ample parking. Multiple ballrooms. 2 huge ones. Often times there are snack foods at these dances. Free parking with security patrol. There is a paid coat check and bar.
Comments: The Grad is the closest place to us for some decent Salsa. Be aware that on some Salsa nights at some point in the late evening it will switch to more of a free for all, like hip hop/reggaetón. The website does not provide any more information and I have never been there, so I can’t really make any. I have never been to this venue, so I have no other information that I can give. I have never been to this venue, so I have no other information that I can give. I have never been to this venue, so I have no other information I can give. Allegro ballroom has huge beautiful ballroom floors and mirrors. Parking is plentiful, open and free, and it is conveniently right of the 80 freeway before the SF bridge. Definitely would recommend this location! Parking around this area can feel a bit sketchy, but they say they have security patrolling. I would suggest that ladies go with friends or have a trusted person walk them to their car when leaving at the end of the evening. The rooms can get quite warm. Expect to sweat with everyone else! The bachata room gets quite squishy. Be ready to be squished into the masses if you enter! There are dancers of all levels at this venue, but they definitely get some more advanced dancers there too. Definitely a plus!
