Caribbean Social Club

The Caribbean Social Club, a puertorican salsa bar in New York is a unique place and the last latin-american club that remained in the now gentrified neighborhood of Williamsburg. Different diaspora generations meet at this place, also called Toñitas named after the old lady who runs the bar for the last 40 years.

With over 1 million puertoricans living in New York it has the largest Puero Rican population of any city in the world.

Besides the older generation of Puerto Rican Americans, more and more young puertoricans discover this place and come to dance classical Salsa and new Reggeaton hits. „ I come here when I feel homesick and miss my country. It feels almost being home here“, as one of the girls said.
