Salsatheque is Montreal’s oldest latin club with mostly reggaetón and Latino pop music with some salsa and bachata in between. It’s loud, in-your-face and makes no apologies for its flamboyant attitude. Since the late 70s, young and old Latinos have shaken their hips on the illuminated disco dance floor.
