Located near the Los Angeles Convention Center , this chic dance club has a rich heritage to boast. It was a former theater building constructed in 1927, and relaunched as a nightclub and major event space in 1990. Mayan features Salsa nights on Fridays and Saturdays, with GoGo dancers gyrating to the hip-throbbing beats. So if you plan to hit the party scene at the club on the weekend, come ready to sweat it out in the Latin heat!
I love this club! It's one of the best in LA.
Especially because it has 3 floors. First floor its rock en español & ragaeton music. The second floor is salsa, merengue & ragaeton! Third floor is Hip Pop and some ragaee! I love this club!
Being a former theater, the high ceilings and large dance floor create an expansively grand, but not cavernous, atmosphere that is a refreshing change from other LA spots that take the idea of being "cozy" with the fellow revelers they pack in to the place a little too far. The architecture and decor designed to resemble Mayan stone carvings make the place historic but avoids feeling kitsch. The music is energetic and the Salsa dancing was fun to watch for those of us not quite up to more than quick try at the elaborate hoofing on display by the skilled regular patrons.
Cover is a bit steep at $18, but considering its a club with live music at times, there is more of an entertainment quality then you would find at a normal bar. There are also two other dance floors in the basement and on the second floor playing more a more general dance music mix.
There is an enforced dress code, meaning you will be required to wear dressier clothes than you might normally wear out in LA. The bouncer the night we went was turning men away for not having dress shoes (leather and devoid of any design asthetic that could make them seem remotely athletic or casual). I would definitly avoid wearing jeans or cargo pants also, although this particular bouncer seemed to be less strict on this matter. Not sure of the requirements for women, but almost all were in cocktail dresses and high heels.
well, hmmm. when i need to be semi-formal for the privilege of walking thru a metal detector and get pat down before paying to enter i should need a head examination. ladies, please: don't patronize a place illfit for gentlemen. Gentlemen: should u knowingly subject urself to such presumptions of ur general kind?
And if it really needs to be like that then maybe it's just unfit for me. I prefer to walk in places i like however i like wherever i like unquestioned. I like dressing well, but not feeling concerned with security measures. I am repulsed and apprehended. Ok lol. maybe that's over the top poetically. but u know.
