Monte Mar Night Club
Music Style: Bachata, Latin,
One of the greatest places to experience top Dominican groups in Brooklyn, Monte Mar combines the "down-home" feel of a neighborhood restaurant with the light and sound production of a larger club. With a capacity of roughly 200 people and a dance floor directly in front of the low stage, the experience is intimate. One can almost be guaranteed that the artists will actually perform, which is not always the case at some other venues.
