Nestled in the heart of Downtown Monterey, Compact Disco stands as a testament to the golden age of nightlife, merging HiFi Listening Room vibes by day with discotheque-inspired ultra lounge energy by night. The venue’s tropical disco-themed ceilings and walls wrap partygoers in a lush, immersive experience. Oversized leafy palms, a constellation of disco balls, and retro audio components of vintage walnut and brushed metal gleam from behind the sleek black marble bar, where California's top mixologists craft favorite libations.

Every weekend, the DJ booth becomes a sanctuary for world-renowned producers and DJs, spinning an eclectic mix of Chicago House, Detroit Techno, New York Tribal House, Philly Soul, Italo Disco, Balearic Beats, Bossa Nova, Funk, and Motown. These genres form the bedrock of modern dance music, ensuring a dynamic auditory journey. With its ever-changing seasonal decor, Compact Disco is a must-see spectacle for both locals and visitors alike, encapsulating the essence of a bygone era with a modern twist.

HOUSE RULES (more like guidelines)

The experience our customers receive is paramount, therefore we have a strict NO CELLPHONE / NO PHOTOGRAPHY policy. Much like how cell phones are not allowed at the movie theatre, the light from your phone ruins the ambiance and experience on the dancefloor (plus you look very boring with our face buried in your phone while you're at a club).  Patrons may take photos near the bathrooms as long as the flash on their camera is off.  

We have a very simple DRESS CODE; be stylish or you will not get past our doorman... we reserve the right to be selective, which means you wont get in if you don't look the part.  So, no sportswear of any kind and no hats; you don't have to dress for the Oscars, but we do ask that you make an effort to throw on a nice clean outfit. 

NO REQUESTS (and this is THE most important rule)

Award winning producers and Djs perform at our Disco each and every weekend, therefore we have a strict NO REQUEST policy. We bring internationally recognized talent to Monterey, DJs who are masters of their craft, so we ask our guests to respect their art form and kindly let them work their magic.  If you're looking for hiphop and pop music, this is not the place for you as we veer from any mainstream and commercial music.


Compact Disco is an affiliate of Good For You Records and Afternoon Delight Records, family owned organizations with 75 years of music industry, hospitality and DJ driven event experience, operating on principles passed down from generation to generation.  Our 'Service before self' belief structure is in line with the global Rotarian creed. We pride ourselves on truth, fairness and goodwill, which is reflected in our local and international charitable efforts.  


Anyone showing the slightest aggression towards any of our guests or staff will be banned from all Compact Disco events for life (no second chances).  Compact Disco is more than a club, it's a community, one that we've worked hard to grow and we are keen on protecting our customers, members and valued guests.  This is a safe space.  If someone is making you feel uncomfortable, please immediately get the attention of the bar staff or go to our head of security at the front door and we will handle the situation no matter how small or big.  Note, at Compact Disco you can BE YOURSELF without judgement, you can lose yourself on our dancefloor and experience the music knowing you are surrounded by good folks.
