Dancing Clubs in Tel-Aviv

Many Bars in Tel-Aviv are a combination of a Bar with a small dancing floor (sometimes people are even dancing on the tables). You can find these kind of places a little bit everywhere in the areas mentioned before.
Big dancing clubs with famous DJs tend to be in industrial zones, like Haoman 17 around Florentin, for example. 
To find the dancing clubs that are popular right now, you can look the Tripadvisor Nightlife section. Use the filters on the left, to choose only the dancing clubs.

Go-Go bars in Tel-Aviv

You will not be able to ignore the many leaflets on the floor of Tel-Aviv.
Yes, there are Go-Go bars in the city, a famous one is in Atarim square, at the round Koloseum building, beside the beach.

Salsa dancing in Tel-Aviv

The main clubs are: Havana club near the Azrieli towers (Igal Alon street, 126) and The Complex (Karlibah street, 2).
tlv
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.
tlv
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.

That's it, enjoy the nights of Tel-Aviv.
