Seating and drink choices are plentiful in this central bar, with a more extensive selection of beers than many spots in town and a good assortment of other drinks available by the glass or by the bottle. The abundance of seating, however, suddenly vanishes when a band strikes up. Once a week, a group of musicians led by one member of the Buena Vista Social Club performs the songs of this celebrated band, drawing crowds composed equally of tourists and locals. People fill the room, watch through the windows, and couples show off elaborate spins and shimmies in the narrow aisle left between tables. Waiters and waitresses manage to slip past all of this to keep everyone's drink full throughout the evening.
Perhaps Antigua's most elite dance club, La Casbah leaves nothing to be desired for location: it overlooks the ruins of a Baroque church as dancers enjoying popular hit songs fill the floor. The club often projects movies directly onto the church wall as an added point of interest for customers, and people walking up the street can see the "screen" from a few blocks away. Drinks can be expensive, and there is a cover charge some nights, but ladies' night on Tuesday and Salsa/Latin night on Wednesday (no cover) help keep the revelry affordable.

Pay attention to the interpretive bathroom signage when you walk over after a few drinks!
Known for salsa and merengue music, La Sin Ventura is usually packed with dancers (of varying expertise) enjoying the live bands who often occupy the stage beside the entrance. Otherwise, various popular songs play over the sound system to keep hips shaking, and the center bar keeps serving drinks at fairly typical Antigua prices all night long. The crowd is surprisingly polite, considering the atmosphere of the place; its name, after all, translates to "the luckless". Care to try yours?
