The Conga Room is one of Los Angeles’ most exclusive nightlife venues, opened in 1998 by a team of owners that included actor Jimmy Smits and singer Jennifer Lopez. The venue was designed by Belzberg Architects and is located directly across from the downtown Staples Center, serving as the city’s premiere pan-Latino nightlife destination. The club has hosted major record launches, high-profile special events, awards shows, and after-parties throughout its existence, including the press conference for the announcement of the 2001 Latin Grammy Award winners. Its 15,000-square-foot complex offers three bars, a dance floor, a full-sized stage, and a restaurant curated by Wolfgang Puck sous chef Ricky Lopez.
