Rumba Lounge Fridays - Onyx Room

Voted San Diego’s #1 nightclub in 2016, Onyx Room is downtown’s hottest stop for vibrant Latin beats. Kick off your weekend right with Rumba Lounge Fridays when two rooms are devoted to Latin hits, bachata, salsa, and more.

Blue Agave

When you’re in the mood for a serious get down to cumbia, salsa, merengue, bachata, or rock en español, Blue Agave Nightclub in Grantville is where you need to go. While there is a cover charge to get it, it is usually FREE before 10pm. Although you will need an Uber to get here, it is worth it to stop in on Sunday nights for live Banda music and dancing.
