This beautiful, ornate and capacious space opened as a ballroom in 1926. These days, though, it serves as one of the biggest music venues within the city limits. The 4,500-capacity room hosts acts such as The National, Tenacious D, and deadmau5, as well as Spanish language gigs for local Latinos. Fair warning: The noise bounces around that high, pretty, star-flecked ceiling until it's a fat wad of mud in your ears.

The Aragon is simply beautiful. Seeing a concert here is a touch surreal, as you're surrounded by elaborate balconies in a historic theater, but you might be seeing, say, an EDM band. The concert calendar is fairly varied, and the drinks tend to be pricy, but just being in such an epic space to enjoy live music and perhaps a Lagunitas is well worth any cost.
