The Mayan, Los Angeles
A hot spot downtown is the historic and beautiful Mayan Theater, on Hill St. Close to other popular venues like Staples Center and world-class hotels, The Mayan is an evening escape for adults to get down and boogie, especially to Latin beats. Salsa competitions are common here. Beyond salsa, a variety of music including hip-hop and rock (en español), is featured. Boh the interior and exterior of this local historical site is breathtaking, in an otherwise so-so surrounding area of downtown. See website for interior shots! Virtual tour pictures are featured.
Dress Code: strict code: evening dressy style; men should wear a dress shirt and pants and nice dress shoes; women should wear an evening gown or nice shirt and blouse combo (esp. good for salsa or freestyle dancing) and dressy heeled shoes
No casual wear (jeans, t-shirts, sneakers, flip-flops, etc)
See website for full dress code details!
One of my favorite salsa clubs is the Mayan in Downtown Los Angeles
On Friday and Saturday nights you can dance to the best salsa bands in L.A. Occasionally, world-renowned bands perform here (Oscar D'Leon and Grupo Niche are some of the recent artists that have performed here).
Dress Code: Like most clubs in L.A. the Mayan has a dress code, which basically means no jeans, sneakers or work boots, or t-shirts.....most people dress to impress.
