Roq en español is a rowdy time—concerts consist of a lot of jumping, dancing and loud, drunken sing-alongs. Club Monaco is a Latin nightclub that frequently books roq en español bands in addition to its weekly roundup of house, pop, merengue and salsa. The club and its shows are mentioned often on the new Latin pop/rock station Viva 105.7. Club Monaco is all-ages, with a short wall separating the drinking seniors from the Similac-swilling freshmen. Guys line the walls in the back and stare at everyone walking by. Cute girls get pulled onstage to strut their stuff. The restrooms are barely tolerable. But Club Monaco makes up for its lack of style with intimacy—fans are free to worship bands from spitting distance. "I like it because it's a no-frills club. You just go in, grab some drinks and groove to some kick-ass bands," says Armando Aguillon, a die-hard rockero. (CL)
