Café Central information
The social hub of Oaxaca’s artsy, bohemian, alternative scene, the Central is owned by one of Oaxaca’s innovative painters, Guillermo Olguín. It hosts independent films at 9pm Wednesday (free) and a spectrum of rarely seen live music acts at 10pm Thursday and/or Friday (admission from M$40). On Saturday it turns into a packed nightclub (free) with a great house DJ who plays highly danceable music ranging from ‘60s to Balkan to contemporary electronica and everything in between – ‘music you won’t hear in your car,’ as one regular put it.
