The Spanish Harlem museum is staying open every Wednesday night this summer, pairing Latino art masters with Latin beats. Pregame the party with a gallery talk by artists featured in “La Bienal 2013: Here Is Where We Jump,” an exhibition of emerging New York–based artists. Then move to El Café, where South Bronx DJ Les Carbonell spins house, soul and Afrobeat with his crew 5ifty 5ive. Step into the modern, 4,625-square-foot courtyard for stunning sunset views of Central Park’s Conservatory Garden, and channel the tropics with specialty cocktails like the Radiance ($8), a mojito with fresh strawberries.
