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).

In the early 1900s, lavish theatres and movie palaces began popping up across Los Angeles. Though a large number of them have been transformed, altered or razed over the years, several of the historic venues remain in operation and in pristine condition. While the opulent sites are not always open to the public, they can be accessed a number of ways, such as the Los Angeles Conservancy’s Broadway Historic Theatre and Commercial District Walking Tour, and the Conservancy’s Last Remaining Seats film series program.

Because the theatres are regularly used for filming, you can also catch a glimpse of them onscreen. Read on for a list of ten historic venues and the productions they have appeared in.
