Yes, Masa Thursday is not really a club but as soon as you walk in, DJ Ricardo's music, a mix of classic 70's and contemporary salsa grabs you. Approach the bar area where a most interesting bunch of folks mingle over tapas and cocktails, or some who just dance right there while the restaurant is turned into the "club". Soon you will find yourself right at home going to and fro the dance floor where you can start out with a salsa lesson with Chavez "Travieso" and you've got no excuse but to have a great time on a Thursday night (without breaking the bank).

Masa is a restaurant, it's not a club. It's casual but the music is EXCELLENT. IMHO I like that there aren't a ton of people. I love to listen to good music and to dance.

I would have to agree with the review below. There is salsa dancing but the diners seem have priority. Even though the night is advertised to start sooner the week I went tables were still being cleared around 10:30pm to make room for the "dance floor". The DJ and music was good, but I would not recommend it. Salsa addicts will likely be let down unless you bring a group with you. You are better off at Ryles or even Mojito's on a Thursday. Although it is free! So you get what you pay for.

Masa is a restaurant that wants to be a dance club when it grows up. That's not gonna happen anytime soon. I went there because Ryles was closed that Thursday. While it was nice to have a place to dance, it was quite odd dancing between tables in a restaurant. It was ok once the crowd thinned, but odd non-the-less. On the plus side, there was no cover charge. My Margarita was expensive ($9.50?) but it was big and delicious. The dancers were the usual Boston hard-core. IMHO, does not compare with Ryles on Thursday.

"Masa" is an up and coming hangout on Thursday nights, this night being open about 6 months or so now. It's a classy southwestern restaurant (great food if you want to go dining) in the South End. It's got a nice bar with a selection of great mojito's, margaritas, and so forth. Drink prices are definitely high, but they don't charge cover. The bar area is usually pretty packed with regulars. Additionally, they serve $1 gourmet tapas, order a plate full. For entertainment, they had been having a variety of smaller live latin acts of sorts, but they have recently converted to a DJ'd format, so the dancing has really picked up. I'm told this is permanent. After about 9pm they close most of the restaurant area and remove the tables for dancing. The crowd is pretty diverse, made up largely from the somewhat upscale south end population. All in all, not a bad place for a change of pace. Street parking, open until 1am.
