About La NOCHE

La NOCHE was born in September of 2017, and launched to a full house of excited guests! Since then, La NOCHE’s popularity has been spreading like wildfire, and guests just can’t get enough.

What to expect:
People come out to experience the event in many different ways, and all come out saying the same thing: That was the best Monday night I’ve had in a long time! Heat up the dancefloor under our beautiful roof; enjoy the experience from a different perspective as you relax in the lounge and socialize with your friends or neighbor; grab a margarita and empanada while you watch the room energize with electricity.

No matter what your reason is for stopping by, the Kimmel Center invites you to experience dance, song, storytelling, and invaluable artistic contributions from across the Latin community throughout the year.
