Daddy Yankee gets some serious play on Friday nights at Henry Jack's Place, as does Don Omar, Pitbull, N.O.R.E., and Hector El Father. No, playa-hater, we ain't firing off a list of Latin Lotharios who've been hooking up at this Avondale nightspot. It's a rockin' rundown of the superstar reggaeton artists whose hits are getting spun on the turntables of resident DJ 2Swift. While the weekly dance fiesta usually starts off with the spinster warming up a throng of twentysomething barrio boys and babes with a combination of cumbias and old-school hip-hop, it only whets their appetites for a main course of reggaeton, as 2Swift slings up two straight hours of the popular Puerto Rican-born hybrid of reggae and dancehall with Latin hip-hop, from midnight until the joint closes. Occasionally, he's joined on the decks by fellow reggaeton mixmasters Luis Boy and DJ Ray, who help work the packed crowd into a frenetic fervor as they shake their moneymakers to jams like Ivy Queen's "Libertad" until last call.

This place bills itself as a nightclub/lounge, but it's actually a really shabby dive bar. The "lounge" area is comprised of several fold-out tables that they charge an extra $20 to sit at. Security and doormen are very unorganized. Bartenders are un-attentive and overcharge for their concoctions. If you don't shell out an extra $20 for a table, you're forced to sit way back at the bar, which offers no real view of the stage, and because of the poor sound system, you really can't hear much either.. If a show is canceled, don't expect to get your money back. Horrible customer service. Stay away from this place at all costs!


FYI!! I have been to the same nightclub...We have had great times in this club!!
