It used to be that if you wanted a good night of hip-shaking, booty-peppering, sweat-inducing salsa, youd have to wait for that time of the month, er, when the Vacilón party was held at various restaurants all over town. Things have changed. Even though promoters still like to make the Miami connection (dropping a moniker like South Beach somewhere in the description of an after-dark Latino event), LA RUMBA NIGHT CLUB is the truest spot in the ATL for salsa, merengue, reggaeton and other moves from south of the border. Just outside the Perimeter on Roswell Road, La Rumba transforms itself each weekend to pack in crowds of people from all kinds of nationalities and backgrounds even gringos.
