An Tua Nua is a great contemporary Irish bar & grill on Beacon Street just outside of Kenmore Square (only about 3 blocks from Sophia's).  In the back they have a dance club about the same size as the upstairs at Sophia's, with a sizable dance floor that holds about 150 people, a bar, and plenty of lounge seating. 

Close to the green line (St. Mary's on the C train, Fenway on the D, Kenmore on the B), plenty of street and lot parking.

Irish/America/Bar food available until 10pm.  I have eaten there regularly, it is very tasty and modestly priced.

Note: they have Karaoke with my man Kev-Mac Daddy in the front portion of the bar when you walk in, but don't let that scare you... Salsa is in the back room!  Full Bar.  Please check your coat.

I am writing with an inquiry about the possibility of your making a general announcement to your listserve as part of a community collaboration.  I am currently co-producing a free, outdoor concert series as part of a collaboration between Inquilinos Boricuas en Acción (IBA), Berklee Colelge of Music and The City of Boston Department of Parks and Recreation. 

The series is named the Tito Puente Latin Music Series, and it will feature two free, outdoor performances in O'Day Park, which is located next door to IBA's Jorge Hernandez Cultural Center in the South End (85 West Newton Street).  The shows will be from 7-9pm on Thursday, July 13 and Thursday, July 27.  It is all being done for the community and will feature La Tradición on the 13th (Lead by Bernardo Hernandez) and the Ernesto Diaz Afro-Latin Project (Lead by Ernesto Diaz).  Both groups will play a combination of Salsa, Cha Cha, Rumba and traditional music of Columbia and Venezuela. 

I appreciate your consideration.  This is very important for both the Villa Victoria community and all communities in the Boston--area, especially since violence in the South End has risen so much this year.  Please feel free to contact me at the number below if you have any questions.
