For 3 YEARS running we've created space for the sounds of the African diaspora. Space for the people who go out to dance, not just pose/posture. In a city that is constantly losing venues or locking doors to certain demographics, we've made sure you've had a place to revel in good energy! Please join us and add to the positive vibes as we create more beautiful moments and memories! RSVP & book your booths, we'll see you soon.

Join us on Tuesday September 24 at 6.30pm for an evening of spiced rum
Nazzie will be showcasing some new spiced rum cocktails and her knowledge of spiced Caribbean Rum - Enjoy the spirit of Rum.
We Love Rum
Baron Samedi Spiced Rum
The Baron Samedi Spiced Rum is a carefully crafted, supernatural spirit. Made with high-quality rums from the Caribbean, the Baron Samedi includes a small amount of Jamaican pot still rum for depth of flavor. All natural spices--cocoa, cinnamon, and clove--are steeped into the rum, which is then blended with vanilla and an exotic spice from the Baron’s native Haiti.
Deep amber with notes of nutmeg and hazelnut, the Baron Samedi Spiced Rum delivers full-bodied flavor with an incredibly smooth finish worthy of the most notorious of spirits.
Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum
Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum was developed after loads of historical research into maritime rums. The all-natural spices and flavors we chose give our rum a rich, smooth taste characterized by top notes of vanilla and cinnamon. More than anything else, it's our spicing that's responsible for the distinctive character, smoothness and versatility of our rum.
Kraken Black Spiced Rum
AS IT IS TOLD, The Kraken Rum is an imported rum from the Caribbean blended with secret spices. Named for the sea beast of myth and legend, The KRAKEN RUM is strong, rich, black and smooth.
IT IS SAID that a ship carrying one of the largest quantities of black spiced rum ever to be brought over from the Caribbean islands, for unexplained reasons, never reached its destination. Stories were plentiful, and while an attack by the Kraken is suspected, no stories were ever confirmed.
Join us on Tuesday September 24 at 6:30pm, and enjoy the spirit of Rum

resident DJ Dave Campbell and guest DJ Carlos.
Hosted by Hot Stepper Productions' Pedro & Carlos
Summer '19 was our biggest season yet, with 14 consecutive Sundays! Unfortunately, Mother Nature was not on our side on Sept. 1st or 15th and we were forced to cancel our finale due to the rain and cold temperature. As our regulars know, the finale is one of the best jams each summer.
Fortunately, the weather forecast on Sunday Sept. 22nd is looking good - so we're doing one final party to close off the summer and Season 10 of Hot Stepper Sundays!
We invite you to lounge, dance, chow down, sip cocktails and party with us in the open air of one of the best patios in the city! Mark that calendar and tell 10 friends :)
