So there's dancing—and there's dancing.

As for the latter, you can now point your hips toward The Conga Room, a new super-sized version of the famed original Latin club.

You'll find it in the L.A. Live complex—Downtown's new answer to CityWalk, but with a towering Ritz-Carlton skyscraper—with a huge dance floor and five bars. (If you count the private one stowed away in the green room, which you always do.)

There's also a whole lot more VIP-ness, with two raised and railed-off corners of the dance floor with prime views of the bands onstage. And a hidden room above the main dance-floor bar. And if the others won't do, there's another two-roomed hideaway with private patio access and views of the complex's outdoor courtyard (you know, where Britney Spears just flipped the switch on the tree lights—important stuff).

The in-house restaurant has been reincarnated as Boca, offering Chuleta de Puerco (a jerk pork chop) and Pollo Mojito to fuel you up before the show or your salsa lessons. (Maybe you could teach a few.) But what you've really been craving lately is a J. Lo sighting, so you should know that she remains among the celeb backers who founded the original in 1998 B.A.

You know, Before Affleck.
