The following are spots where I hang out to meet or just be around Puerto Ricans. Post where you meet them.
Pepins Restaurant: My top pick!
Salsa, Merengue, Bachata on Friday and Saturday Nights. I hear the food is not that great though. But if it's dancing and fairly priced drinks, it's a great place.
El Matador Restaurant in Downtown Phoenix:
Friday and Saturday Night Salsa & Merengue. Live Salsa Band, Large dance floor.
North East Phoenix, 65th st. & Glendale
Great Cuban and Puerto Rican Food & service. Worth the money. Say hi to Chris, the blonde hostess. She enjoys our food and culture.
Kay Rico: At the Howard Johnsons
Right by the pool. Nice quaint bar. Music by the pool on Fridays and Saturdays.
My opinion, The food is not that great and it's over priced. By stating this, I'm hoping they improve because it has great potential.
