An old timer and one of the fanciest clubs in the center, Forum is where the rich kids go to get rowdy. Although a little pricey – and perhaps even pretentious – it’s still one of the best spots to dance the night away to a variety of modern Latin hits. Be sure to dress up and get in early as it fills up pretty quickly on weekends.
