History[edit]

Inside the Conga Room

Beginning in 1998 as a venue for salsa music performances, The Conga Room expanded its booking to incorporate artists in other genres: pop/rock, EDM, world beat, jazz, and hip hop. As it outgrew its old location, the club reopened on December 10, 2008 at the L.A. Live district in downtown Los Angeles.[1] The new club, with 15,000 sq ft (1,400 m2) and a capacity of about 1,000, is nearly three times the size of the old club.

The club has hosted record launches, movie debuts, award shows and after-parties for various entertainment, social, political and sporting events. It hosted the press conference that announced the 2001 Latin Grammy Award winners.

The Conga Room is co-owned by Jimmy Smits, Jennifer Lopez, Paul Rodriguez, Sheila E., Amaury Nolasco, Baron Davis, Trevor Ariza, and will.i.am.
