Vieja Habana Salsateca - Bar Arica - Chile

Salsa had its roots in Cuban son rhythms almost a century ago. With time, the music got spicier, taking on the flavorings of other countries where it took root. Thus the name: salsa. Salsa from Old Havana has arrived in the north of Chile, here in Arica. Well, not solely son—cumbia, reggaetón and tropical dance music from other nations also has a home here. But this is the place to go, to dance the rest of the night away until almost dawn. Drinks $2-4. Open Friday, Saturday and holidays midnight-4:30 a.m.
