With a low ceiling and a shadowy atmosphere flecked with glittery Christmas lights, this large downtown bar is a great place to hear live music by local underground and indie rock bands, as well as weekly DJ nights that include Latin and dance music. A large, colorful painting of a matador and bull dominates the club's stage and dance floor, and the long, wooden main bar boasts a full range of cheap drinks and exotic liquors. La Cita also has a second bar in the back on "El Patio," where barflies can watch sporting events on television and sip their drinks while gazing up at the illuminated skyscrapers towering over the downtown skyline. Full bar. No food. Street parking. Ages 21 & over.
