Five Must-See Arts and Culture Events This Week in Metro Phoenix

We know: The beginning of the work week sucks. But if you take a quick look at the calendar, you'll see we're off to a pretty good week of art events, sporting events, dance parties, and more. Here are our must-see events from now to the weekend . . .

Monday, April 8: Noche Latina @ Club Cloud N9ne (Formerly The New Club Tunnel) Hanging out at a typical hookah bar can be pretty tiresome. The combination of blaring pop music and the veil of smoke all but guarantees a migraine. That is, unless you're lucky enough to find a place that serves hummus or has a couple of belly dancers on hand as welcome distractions.

The Nile Hookah Lounge breaks out of that stereotypical mold with Noche Latina, a weekly dance party with DJs and live bands bumping tunes from genres such as reggaeton, cumbia, and merengue inspiring more movement than a typical evening on a couch that reeks of banana tobacco. Price: Cover is $2 for ladies and $10 for guys -- Melissa Fossum
