The New Copacabana is enormous, well located, and tremendous fun. The staff is very personable, and well-known Salsa and Merengue musicians frequent the Club and often sit in with the bands booked for the night. Music is danceable, dynamic, and professional. On December 20, 2002, the Club was festively decorated for Christmas, with neon palm trees and dangling snowflakes, pink and white lights, and lots of Copa girls, who dance on raised stages, sometimes with partners. Smoking is allowed, but ventilation is excellent. Tables service includes drinks and popcorn, and there is an extensive bar.
