  • Best nights to go: Friday is Latin Night. And Saturday is LGBT Night. Fridays are known to be the best.
  • Ambience & Decor: The venue consists of two levels. The first/ entry level is small and where the bathrooms and practice salsa room are both located. Then, when you take the grand stairs to the second floor, there’s a sizable (maybe 50-75 people) dance floor on your left and the bar to the right. It doesn’t feel overcrowded, and people respectfully give others space to have a great time.
  • The Music: The DJ eloquently mixed salsa, bachata, cumbia, and merengue throughout the night, which kept the interest of most dancers rocking the floor.
  • Parking: Free Parking Available — Sanctuary has their own unpaid lot. And if the lot gets overcrowded; then park on East Andrews Drive NW. Parking is free on the street, too, after 10PM.
