El Cante brings Flamenco Music to Beach Drive

El Cante is a new dance club at 10 Beach Drive. The concept features Mediterranean cuisine, tapas, live music, and dancing in the space formerly occupied by Ceviche/Ché.

On Friday night while walking my dog down Beach Drive I was mesmerized by an array of brilliant lights projected on the side of the old Ceviche location. A couple was dancing on the sidewalk while a live band played on the porch above.

Below, in the basement, more music could be heard.

It was a resplendent and enlivening sight, and one that is the norm at El Cante. The concept quietly opened at the end of April and has already proven to be a hit with downtown revelers.

Guests can enjoy ample and spacious seating outside along Beach Drive and Central Avenue. The club downstairs is also open, and those visiting are asked to please wear a mask when inside.

Featured menu items include delicious hummus fries, anatolian shakshuka, beef shish kabobs, Turkish coffee, and Mediterranean baguettes.

El Cante is open from 5pm-midnight Tuesday through Sunday.

Keep up with the club by following El Cante on Facebook and Instagram.

Weaving together music and dancing downtown

Previous live performances at El Cante have pair music with pure performance. Last weekend, Johanna Zenobia danced while Daryal Kafkasso Erdem played guitar.

“LOVED dancing last night at @elcante.club with @kafkasso; nothing better than weaving visual and aural art with old friends,” wrote Zenobia in a post following the event.

Do you love to salsa?

El Cante plans to host a salsa dancing night every Thursday evening in its space.
