NEIGHBORHOOD NOTES | Loring Kitchen and Bar


A few Saturdays ago, a group of friends decided to venture into the Loring Kitchen and Bar despite the terrible parking situation, snow and cold weather. Inside, we found a surprise…salsa dancing on Saturday nights.

Loring Kitchen and Bar, 1359 Willow St S, Minneapolis, MN 55403. (612) 843-0400

Now, I’ve been away from the salsa scene for quite a few years. Law school did not make enough time for me to enjoy the luxuries of life. It was fun to coincidentally bump into a salsa night and see some familiar faces. Fatima, a DJ and salsa instructor, was there. She gave free lessons to the eclectic crowd of smiling and enthusiastic salsa dancers to kick off the evening.

Free valet. Good music. Sweet potato fries. Definitely worth another night back.
