Best Place To Hear Live Rock En Español (2008)

LA KUEVA

Which should not be confused with the easiest place to hear it. Rocking out at LA KUEVA requires stamina. An extended dance party precedes all live performances, with patrons flailing to an eclectic mix of rhythms from warmer climes. When a band finally takes the stage in the wee hours, the crypt-like bar transforms into the world's tiniest arena, complete with a pulsating light (and fog!) show. Considering that some of Latin rock's top acts travel thousands of miles to play here, it's well worth a trip to Astoria to see them.
