Hi Everyone; Iím very know to the Salsa world as a social dancer and I enjoy only those places that really know what Salsa is all about. Ryles happen to be a great and prestigious places ware many people enjoy the awesome music of Jazz and mellow to the easy enjoyable social drinks and great food. But when it comes to Sunday!! I urge all of those salsa dancers to come and enjoy the best salsa dancing motivated by my own opinion the best D.J. in the Boston Community, know as (Rob Suave). For the ladies thereís none stopping action when it comes to the guys that are always looking to encourage new none experience or experience dancers on the floor. So if you ask me!! Ryles is the place to be definitely. The place is full of friendly people, great atmosphere and a great Bartender a plus. One of the most exiting happening at the Ryles is that there is always activity for those that like to learn Salsa. Tue through Thr there is always Salsa Instructor for beginner and intermediate lever of dancing for those that are willing to upgrade there lever of dancing. LadiesÖ at Ryles you donít have to be the best dancer; once you enter the doors you become the best dancer because everyone will attend to you. Lol. So for a great night out on a Sunday, Ryles is the place to be. Check it out and you well be back for some more.

I had an amazing time at this club! Even though I am a beginner salsera and had only ever learned on1 salsa, the lesson for bachata and salsa on2 at 6 started me off in the right direction. The cover was $10 and parking was so easy- validated at S+S Restaurant across the street. There was a buffet for $5, and the food was decent. The guys were so friendly and patient- and before the night was through, had this total beginner doing dips and multiple spins all over the place! After a couple of hours, some really amazing dancers took to the floor and it was almost as fun to watch as it was to dance. My best advice is to give it a try, take the lesson, and to smile frequently. This place is a blast!

Don't go there if you want to take a lesson on Sunday. You'll be the only one there :-)

I moved here about a year ago from LA. I had been into the Salsa scene in LA for a couple years solid, would go out sometimes 5 nights a week. When I moved here I found a lot of "S.American" style dancers in the couple clubs I went to. I hope you all know what I mean, they dance a side/back step, not the traditional international style salsa we all love so much. I got discouraged and to be honest I've been out a total of 12 times in the last 2 years. I've been really missing it. I decided to check out Ryles on Sunday night. I'm feeling a bit rusty, heck I've forgotten more patterns than I can remember! So, what did I find at Ryles Sunday. Friendly crowd, didn't feel cliquey, that's always a plus when you don't know anyone at all and haven't brought a partner. The music however left me feeling limp. It was light and fluffy Salsa, a little slow for me. I like it with a bit of an edge, a little faster, more like really hot Mambo, or Samba. The dancing ranged, there were beginners, intermediate level and better. The dance floor is small by my standards, could hold maybe 15-20 couples without constantly bumping into each other. Lots of seating comparatively. I'd probably go back once in a while and see if the music ramps up a bit.

Having just moved to the area from a much smaller and much less diverse city, I was looking forward to a better salsa environment. Asking around, several people recommended Ryles to me as the hot spot for salsa in Boston. Man, was I ever disapointed. I must say I have never danced with worse leads in my life. Not only was I continually jerked around the dance floor, I had to constantly be aware of the couples around me, because the leads were not doing their part in keeping my safe. I had to dance defensively the whole night. Apparently dancefloor etiquette is unheard of in these parts. I was sorely disappointed because the music and the atmosphere were so great.
