El Camaroncito - The Player's Club

The Devil likes to dance! Who wouldn’t really, but there is a widely spread and widely-believed story that the Devil himself actually paid a visit to the El Camaroncito dance hall back in the day. The story goes thus: A handsome man entered the bar and immediately enchanted a young woman into dancing with him. They danced and danced until, alas, she glanced down and saw that instead of dancing shoes, he had either cloven hooves or chicken feet (apparently rumor can’t get this slightly pertinent detail straight). In any event she screamed and the Devil beat feet (or hoof). Supposedly this is still the Devil’s favorite place to dance and he appears regularly. This location is now a place where couples who are open to new experiences with other couples can meet and -experience. So if he’s haunting it, I imagine it’s because he enjoys the scenery. However if you wish to check this place out, you should know it is members-only.
