History[edit] Inside the Conga Room Architectural Details of Ceiling Beginning in 1998 as a venue for salsa music performances, the Conga Room expanded its booking to incorporate artists in other genres: pop/rock, EDM, world beat, jazz, and hip hop. As it outgrew its old location, the club reopened on December 10, 2008 at the L.A. Live district in downtown Los Angeles.[1] The new club, with 15,000 sq ft (1,400 m2) and a capacity of about 1,000, is nearly three times the size of the old club. Designed by Belzberg Architects, The Conga Room has a VIP area with views of the Staples Center and Nokia Plaza. The club has hosted record launches, movie debuts, award shows and after-parties for various entertainment, social, political and sporting events. It hosted the press conference that announced the 2001 Latin Grammy Award winners. The Conga Room is co-owned by Jimmy Smits, Jennifer Lopez, Paul Rodriguez, Sheila E., Amaury Nolasco, Baron Davis, Trevor Ariza, and among others.
