Best of Boston

1999 Best Dance, Latin Scene


If Ricky Martin and Marc Anthony are the demigods of the Latin music craze, Sophia’s, on Boylston Street in the Fenway, is the local place of worship for salsa, merengue, Afro-Cuban, bossa, you name it. Five nights a week those sexy, throbbing beats wash over the club’s three floors—two of which are packed with sweaty dancers, the third with hungry diners sampling tapas.
