Floridita, in the heart of Soho, is the place to go if you're in the mood to salsa.

The Bathhouse, a refurbished Victorian building that used to be home to Turkish baths, is at once a late-night bar, live music venue, fine dining restaurant and a place to stop for a quick bite at breakfast or lunch.

Young fashionable crowds flock to the Bathhouse for its elegant atmosphere, dance floor and excellent drink selection.
