The Mayan Club in Downtown LA
The Mayan was originally build in 1927 by leading Los Angeles architect Stiles Clements and designed by famous Mexican Artist Francisco Cornejo, as a spectacular Mayan revival theater. It is one of only eight building built in pre-Columbian style.
The Mayan features a great show nightly and the staff are generally very friendly. This is not your “Run of the mill” nightclub, it is a very unusual venue. The high ceilings help create a much better sound than most other nightclubs in LA and the place is pretty big, so you will see a large crowd of people. There is also a big upper area with stadium type seating. The bathrooms are pretty and nice and clean and with lots of stalls in the ladies room, so you will not have to wait in line forever. If you need a drink there is basically a bar where ever you go and pricing is from $7 – $10 each.
The club has 3 dance floors:
Main Floor, Basement and Mezzanine – each floor offers what you like to listen to, such as Hip-Hop, Salsa, Merengue, Reggeaton, Cumbia, Electro, House and Dance Music, Top 40, Latin Pop, 80s and more ); so there’s quite a diversity in music. It is not a typical “18+ crowd, where you see kids acting drunk, frighting or trying to shuffle. The audience is quite mixed.
Yelp features them with 3.5 stars – Bravo! That’s more than the average.
