Cafe Cocomo Press:

Hear what the Zagat Guides to San Francisco Nightlife 2002 and 2003 and 2004, 2007 says about Cafe Cocomo:
This "cavernous" Potrero Hill "hot salsa spot" provides "terrific space for dancing" and features "scintillating" local bands, "fabulous instructors", a strict dress code (no jeans or sneakers) and a "friendly diverse crowd"; a few wallflowers whine it gets packed and has "hokey", "prom-style" decor, but dancing fools rejoin that's what makes it a "unique SF experience". The 2007 Nightlife guide has new reviews but they do mention the lessons again and how it is a great place to "get your salsa on" !
We were the only instructors noted in the Zagat Nightlife Guide! --Jake
