Can anyone recommend a venue or nigthclub that caters to latina clientele. Doesn't necessarily have to be salsa music. Thanks in advance.

There have been nights at Simone's in Pilsen where I have been one of very few white people in a largely Latino/Latina crowd. It's ironic, since many longtime locals seem to consider it one of the newer "white" establishments. This is probably because it fancies itself somewhat of a "gastropub" with craft beers, custom cocktails, brunch, etc., but late at night it has more of a club kind of feel, with DJs spinning.

Harbee's, also in Pilsen, is a smaller bar that has DJs and a packed house many nights. The crowd is usually fairly racially diverse, but majority Latino/a, I would say.

Last time I was at Castle nightclub, there were a bunch of hispanic/latino people there and one DJ even played some bachata and salsa for a little bit. I find that whenever I go to the clubs in town, they're pretty racially diverse. There are obviously other places in town, like Nacional 27 in River North, and many other places in primarily hispanic neighborhoods of course. One South American bar I like is Barra N in Avondale which is more Argentinian though they can make you Brazilian drinks as well. It's a little off the beaten path though - need a cab for it. It's a pretty small space but can be fun.

I love it too. Not for everyone, but I enjoy the intimate space and dancing. The women who go there can be hot too. They make a damn good mojito there as well.

Agree on the women. Caiprinhas are good. Easily some of the best music in the city

My Brazilian friend was very happy that they could make him a decent Caipirinha. He fully expected them to mess it up.

Better or worse nights to hit Ñ just to check it out for the first time?

That's been on my list for years and even though I'm super close I just have never gotten around to it.

A good caipirinha is heavenly, much preferred to a mojito for me.
