The world famous Conga Room was founded by real estate entrepreneur Brad Gluckstein and co-owned by Jimmy Smits, Jennifer Lopez, Paul Rodriguez, Sheila E., Amaury Nolasco, Baron Davis, Trevor Ariza, and will.i.am. After closing its original doors, the Conga Room reopened in December 2008 as part of L.A. LIVE, the new downtown entertainment district, offering a significantly larger, more sophisticated destination for loyal patrons and all those seeking an exciting, authentic Latin sabor.
For a decade the Conga Room has earned a reputation as the House of Blues for Latin music. Early on, it broadened its musical repertoire beyond salsa ( Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, Buena Vista Social Club and Oscar De Leon) to spotlight popular artists in other genres: rock en Espaol (e.g., Aterciopelados, Julieta Venegas), world beat (e.g., Susana Baca, Lila Downs, Hugh Masekela, Bebel Gilberto), jazz (e.g., Billy Cobham, Poncho Sanchez, Jack DeJohnette), urban (e.g., Common, Wyclef Jean) and pop/rock (e.g., Jose Feliciano, Nelly Furtado, Los Lobos). With its rebirth at L.A. LIVE, the Conga Room hosts an even broader array of concerts and parties, many in the wake of entertainment, social, political and sporting events at the nearby Staples Center, Nokia Theatre, Club Nokia and JW Marriott and Ritz-Carlton Hotel.
