Clandestino was founded by Nicolas Paredes as a monthly alternative Latino dance night at Crescent Ballroom, but Paredes and crew quickly realized that switching locations and schedules up made more sense than hosting a monthly event. Now, Clandestino acts as a pop-up night, stopping at venues like the Rhythm Room and the Heard Museum. Best of all, the Clandestino team helped coordinate a Latin stage at the Viva PHX festival, which took over a massive chunk of downtown Phoenix in March, hosting groups like LA's Buyepongo and Thee Commons at the Goldwater Room and the Renaissance Hotel.

Since launching in February, Antro Nightclub has remained true to its promise of bringing the pachanga to the people. Whether they're spinning hip-hop, Top 40, EDM, or Latino music, it's always a puro pinche pari at the west-side dance venue. Their Latin nights feature the sultry rhythms of bachata, cumbia, reggaeton, and salsa, as well as provocative dancers decked out in outrageous LED suits or skimpy lingerie. Because Latinos love to get down, Antro's biggest commodity is its vast dance floor, but clubgoers can always opt to take in the super-bueno atmosphere from a number of VIP booths. Libations are readily available at the bar or at tabletops where bottle service is always on tap, and you can always count on the chavos looking slick in button-down shirts and the chicas keeping it sexy in body-hugging dresses and miniskirts.
