Conga Room On Hold

Los Angeles Latin music club The Conga Room is closing at the end of May, eight years after opening in the city’s Mid-Wilshire section.

It is scheduled to reopen in two years in a new, larger-capacity location as part of the multibillion-dollar, AEGt-powered L.A. Live sports and entertainment district, which will house the 7,000-seat Nokia Theatre near the Staples Center.

The club enjoyed early publicity and investments from such stars as Jennifer Lopez, Jimmy Smits and Paul Rodriguez.
