Santa Salsa looks like a dive bar, but it’s so much more than that. This Bushwick spot throws salsa, merengue, and reggaeton dance parties, and they serve a menu of Venezuelan street food that’ll make you want to crawl out of bed at 1am for a late-night snack. Stop by for a platter of fries topped with steak, a burger with ham and avocado, or a sandwich stuffed with chorizo, cabbage, and grilled cheese. There are also a few hot dogs to choose from, all of which are messy and satisfying. Santa Salsa is open until 2am every night, and they have a long bar and a few indoor tables, as well as some outdoor seating.
