4. GUAYABA LATIN BAR & GRILL Another one of those restaurant/bar combinations, Guayaba boasts some killer mojitos, things become even more exciting when the lights go down. A dance floor, some sweet DJs and all the Latin music you've been missing in your life -- it's all under that restaurant roof.

3. METROPOLIS DISCOTHEQUE & EXTRAVAGANZA If you haven't been to Metropolis, you're really missing out. It's enormous, with one of those two-for-one club things going on, which will mean something when you see the equally intimidating line outside. Just remember, as you stand and wait to be given the once-over, it'll all be worth it in the end. Beers, bachata, and babes.

2. CRYSTAL NIGHTCLUB A Latin gay club, complete with fabulous drag queens and an uber-friendly crowd? Don't mind if we do! Crystal has been around for nearly 20 years, but this well-kept little treasure doesn't receive the same fanfare as the more visible Montrose establishments. (It's way far away from there.) The commute is worth the effort for the salsa dancing alone, even if you're just hanging out on the sidelines and taking in the view.
