Music venue El Club opened in 2016 in a renovated space in Mexicantown that is part bar and part concert hall, with a generous outdoor garden and couch-lounge area attached. Their show line-up (most begin at 8pm) gets good buzz, but this is also a fun place to hang outside of show hours, too. It has a slightly throw back vibe; the bar is long with a sole TV in the far corner and DJ set-up in another (this isn’t a quiet spot), and a neon “El Club” sign hangs high in cursive. Pizza (not just cheese-only bar slices but margherita, sausage and pepperoni, vegan pie with tahini dressing, kimchi-style, a handful of white pies, and so on) is served by Pepe Z on-site. El Club can also be rented out for private parties.
