Night at Plata
Smile, You Are in San Miguel
By Jade Arroyo
Plata is a new, vibrant bar and nightclub in town. Plata is an inclusive space which celebrates sexual and human diversity. However, it’s seems so much more than something to be defined as a gay bar. It’s a showcase for queer performing arts; it’s filled with great DJs and performers, such as amazing singer and poet Lady Zen, the mesmerizing drag shows and DJ sets by Ula LaFaggot, cabaret nights and special guests artist like soprano Morgana and Hip Bird, and fundraisings for the LGBTQ rights community programs like local Colectivo 41.
When you come here, you can be certain to have a high quality show. Plata just launched the Kiki Tuesday, a weekly entertainment night about LGTBQ history and culture. Don’t miss out on the night of The Rocky Horror Picture Show (my personal favorite) on Tuesday, June 14.
Plata is located on Zacateros 73, in an underground—–literally—venue.
We were down at Plata last weekend and ran into most fabulous people in town. Make this a must to visit on your next night out. You won’t regret it.
