Karamba 

Pachanga Night in Sugar House

I like to imagine that Latin pop star Pitbull’s ideal night at the club would involve neon-clad go-go dancers, Red Bull & vodka, dem-bow bass lines and lasers—lots of lasers. That being said, I think he would love Sundays at Karamba (1051 E. 2100 South). Every week, CJ Lara of JCL Promotions takes over this Sugar House spot and brings in celebrity-impersonating drag queens, live graffiti artists, dancing models and, of course, tons of glow sticks. A $7 cover gets you into this gay-friendly, Latin-infused fiesta appropriately dubbed Pachanga Night. Sorry, if you no habla español, pachanga essentially means to party your face off, and Karamba’s weekly party lives up to its definition.

You can dance to Cumbia? Then this hat is acceptable.
