Havana club near the Azrieli towers (Igal Alon street, 126) and The Complex (Karlibah street, 2).
Start from these places and ask the regular dancers about more places to dance (it changes).
You can look at the Salsa Power site for more places, but it is not necessarily updated, so before you go to a place, try to phone or look at the website or facebook page or ask people, because from time to time a place closes.
In Tel-Aviv you can dance Salsa almost every day. The evening usually begins around 22:00 with a class of one hour in many levels and just after comes the party.
Going to Salsa in Israel is a good way to meet people and if you can't dance Salsa, simply join the beginner level group.
In summer time, there is Salsa dance in some of the bars on the beach, but you’ll have to ask people because each year it happens in different places at different days.
You can look at this Video of a Salsa night in Havana club (after class, Bachata demo). Visit also my page about the Salsa dancing styles.
