La Cita

Club in Downtown Los Angeles & Boyle Heights

Pulling everyone from hipsters to urban vaqueros and nostalgic Latino aunties, this red-vinyl Mexican dive bar just keeps on kicking, despite Downtown's ongoing gentrification. DJs whip the crowd into a frenzy with hip-hop, reggae, ska and post-punk, while Sundays feature veteran band Doble Poder, who keep the floor heaving with old-school Latin dance tunes between 2pm and 9pm.
