Casa Panza Spanish Tapas in Little Havana Miami – Flamenco Dancing, Salsa Dancing Lessons
1620 SW 8 St.
Down in Miami a few weeks ago for a conference and checked out Casa Panza in Little Havana Miami. It’s a Spanish Tapas restaurant that features a free Flamenco show and on Mon and Weds you can take salsa dance lessons by Dimension Latina Dance Studios in the back room from 7-9PM or call David at 305 979 4419. David, his sister and his girlfriend run the salsa lessons – really great people and excellent dance instructors. The back room of Casa Panza also has a large stage where they host live bands – I’m sure it gets pretty crazy on the weekends. I was there on a Weds night so it was a little slower but I enjoyed watching the flamenco dancing in the restaurant. The food is a little pricey but little did I know how enourmous the plates were. I had the osso bucco which was amazing. They also have a fixed menu that has a wide range of classic dishes like Arroz Caldoso, Paella de Mariscos, Frito de Verano, and Chorizo Guisado con Patatas.
I’m sure it’s a lot of fun on the weekends with the live music and dancing. Definitely going to go back and check this out again.
