Just on the other side of the L.A. River sits La Zona Rosa, a Boyle Heights dance hall with a decidedly south-of-the-border feel. The Coronas come in buckets here, a complex run of light strings keep things the perfect shade of dark, and country-western wear is practically the dress code. Still, for the mid-thirties crowd, La Zona Rosa gets down (sometimes way, waaay down) on the dance floor, with wailing accordion music pouring out the door until the strike of 2 a.m. The occasional big name Norteño act might roll through town and collect on a $20 door charge, but on most nights the spacious dance floor is open and inviting to anyone looking to dance. Don't fool yourself into thinking you'll be the best-dressed person at the bar though; there's already someone at La Zona Rosa with a better jacket and shinier boots – and dance moves to match.
