Congas Nightclub features live bands and DJs who play the spectrum of Latin music from salsa to merengue to reggaeton and even spin a little bit of house and hip-hop. Congas' understated storefront is located in the back of a Plantation strip mall between a Goodwill and a Chinese buffet. With 1,700-plus likes on its Facebook page, Congas has a strong following among the Latin American community in Fort Lauderdale's western suburbs. The club is open Thursday through Saturday nights. There's no cover on Thursdays, when you can get your hands on $3 well drinks and domestics. During the Friday-night happy hour, from 8 to 10 p.m., all food and drinks are half-priced. Cover on Friday is $5, and on Saturday it's $10.
