  • Sabor Latin Street Grill
    After Dalton Espaillat spent an evening reminiscing about the Latin American street fare he grew up with, he decided to go out and get some. It didn't take Dalton long to realize the effort was futile—there wasn't a trace of the Caribbean and South American comfort food he craved anywhere in Charlotte. So, instead of building the world's longest dumbwaiter to Brazil, he founded Sabor Latin Street Grill. Dalton's restaurant celebrates the street foods and informal family dinners found throughout the Spanish-speaking world right here in North Carolina. The cooks aren't afraid to branch out from traditional Latin fare, though. In addition to the fresh corncake arepas and spinach-stuffed pupusas, they also assemble American-style tacos and burritos stuffed with chicken, fish, and homemade sauces. Of course, they allow guests to construct their own taco, burrito, and gordita from a lineup of veggies, black beans, steak, and shrimp.

  • Charlotte Ballroom Dance Academy
    The consortium of professional instructors at Charlotte Ballroom Dance Academy shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Paired with a partner or teamed up with instructor-founders Zenaida and Bryon Chandler—Latin and Showdance and Open Smooth champions, respectively—students can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or mambo. Dancers can develop their skills and confidence in private and group lessons or during jovial practice parties, where they'll trip the light fantastic without tripping on the light itself. Charlotte Ballroom Dance Academy also hosts occasional specialty classes, such as Cardio Ballroom, and leads betrothed couples through special wedding-dance lessons.

  • Dream Nightclub
    At an hour when many bars and restaurants are busy closing up shop, Dream Nightclub lights up as a beacon to nocturnal wanderers from across the city. Custom-designed graffiti murals, pulsing LED lights, and energetic dance beats greet patrons as soon as they enter the after-dark dancehall and performance venue. The 5,000-square-foot club features ample lounge seating for bottle service or dramatically lit staring contests, as well as two bars and a full-service kitchen that churns out plates laden with chicken wings and french fries as late as 2:30 a.m. on most nights. A QSC sound system floods the dance floor with Latin, techno, or hip-hop tunes depending on the day, although the club also hosts occasional DJ sets and regular jazz-band performances.
