The perfect spot for hosting dance events came into being with the opening of the bar-café WALTER in the new Stade de Suisse in Wankdorf Bern. The extensive parquet floor, the atmospheric bar and the welcoming WALTER team moved me to create a once-monthly Salsa event, in addition to the weekly Salsaare: ESENCIA.
Esencia can be translated as «Essence» or «Concentrate» and this is precisely the theme; the event concentrates on the essentials: a large parquet dance floor, a fabulous bar with a fine selection, exquisite Salsa music, perfect for dancing.
The same criteria apply to both Esencia and Salsaare. Esencia is a thoroughbred Salsa event, created for Salsaholics who enjoy dancing to the complete spectrum of true Salsa music. In reflection of this, Cuban music (Son, Timba, Cha-cha-cha), and Salsa from New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Puerto Rico, Columbia and the rest of the world are all played in equal measures. Latin Jazz and the Cha-cha-cha are also played regularly, and one can expect to enjoy two or three Bachata or Merengue pieces every night.
Opening times and prices
Esencia usually takes place on the first Saturday of each month (the best place to find the next date is under news).
Opening times: 10.00 pm – 3.00 am
Entry: Fr. 15.00
