Debauchery in a church.

4.0 Stars

Well, it's not a church anymore, but SOMA (also known as Vieja Iglesia) was once a house of worship. Now it's the site of many a late-night party, with live DJs and spectacular lights/video stuff, too. This is the sort of underground space that you're expecting to see when you think you're headed to a really great party. My friends say it's been around since the 1980s in various incarnations, and the time I went, it didn't disappoint. You're not going to find listings for it in any mainstream press, but get to know locals, especially groups that throw huge semi-legal parties, and I guarantee you'll be setting foot here at least once.
