Discover the Best Live Latin Music in Los Angeles

Given the diversity of our city, looking for venues where Latin music in the wider sense is offered means looking at nearly every general venue in the city, especially for acts that bring in massive audiences. These days you won’t find Mexican norteño supergroup Los Tigres del Norte at a Latin-only club—they recently headlined the Hollywood Bowl. Likewise, Rock en Español stars Café Tacvba play classic rock mecca the Troubadour; '60s nostalgia packages headlined by Argentine-Mexican crooner Leo Dan pack the Dolby Theatre in the heart of Hollywood; DTLA’s Microsoft Theater books any big-ticket Latin act from romantico singer-songwriter Ricardo Arjona to the Reggaeton Kings; and pop reggaeton sensations like Ozuna can commandeer The Forum in Inglewood. Brazilian acts of all types also constantly play the mainstream venues.

So besides the venues below, if you’re looking for “live Latin music in Los Angeles” you should really check the calendars of every major L.A. music spot. After all, Latin music is Los Angeles music (and vice versa).

Eighty Two in the Arts District of Downtown L.A.

Top 5 L.A. Arcades to Get Your Game On

03/13/2018

James McCall

EightyTwo is a popular, full-menu bar in the lauded Downtown L.A. Arts District. One room has video games and the other has a large selection of pristinely kept vintage pinball games. Extra points for the 90s action side scrollers like the Simpsons, Ninja Turtles, and a very rare X-Men game. You can even get down with Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker game. However, the main attraction here is the Street Fighter 2 cabinet that brings loads of good players to the scroll as well as the aging hipster who remembers a few combos. The Street Fighter matches are projected above the dance floor where the amazing DJs spin.

The Best Underground Bars in Downtown L.A.

12/12/2017

Hope Ewing

There are so many fun bars in L.A. but there is something about descending below-ground that conjures feelings of mystery and adventure - just ask Alice. In few places is this more true than the underground bar. Secret entrances, darkened staircases, being in the know are all part of the appeal.

There's no better place to enjoy this feeling than Downtown Los Angeles. Early 20th-century architectural gems have been revived right and left since the start of the 21st - and with them the basement bars, dance clubs and jazz lounges that once served the booming city’s movers and shakers. Bank vaults, a power plant and historic speakeasies are being redesigned for the thriving Downtown L.A. nightlife scene. If you’re searching for the best underground bars Downtown read on for Downtown L.A.’s finest in subterranean drinking, dining and dancing.
