El Convento Rico
Prepare to lose half your body weight in sweat, because the energy here is high and the ceilings are low. Dancing isn’t optional in a place that’s this much fun, so expect regular trips to the bar for cooling beers. With its wild Latino and disco music, it’s pitched for the gay, lesbian and transgender community, but the rest of the city can’t resist it, either.
Expect gorgeous men in drag on the dance floor (and in the ladies’ loo) with full on-drag shows every Friday and Saturday night at 12.30am. Squealing bachelorette parties aren’t unusual, and are honey to a few straight men looking for a squeeze (they’ll use the Latin music as an excuse to bump and grind). But everyone here’s clearly having a ball.
