Located in the heart of Downtown Monterey, Compact Disco is a HiFi Listening Room by day and discotheque-inspired ultra lounge by night. Textures and elements of the venue’s tropical disco themed ceilings and walls engulf party go-ers with oversized leafy palms and an array of disco balls. An early 1900's Parisian salon-style art installation by famed fiber artist Linda Lay adorns the north wall while back lit vintage walnut and brushed metal stereo components glisten from behind the black marble bar where patrons enjoy their favorite libations poured by the area's best mixologists.  A rotation of world renowned producers and DJs grace the DJ booth each and every weekend, showcasing Chicago House, Detroit Techno, New York Tribal House, Philly Soul, Italo Disco, Balearic Beats, Bossa Nova, Funk, Motown and other sounds that helped build the foundation of modern day dance music.  Our immersive seasonal decor is a must see for both locals and visitors alike.

Open 7 days per week, festivities begin at 5pm daily as customers enjoy an extensive selection of craft cocktails, local wines, craft beer and more during our Happy Hour which extends until 7pm. As the sun sets, the excitement builds as our guests sip from an elite selection of the world's finest champagnes while dancing to sounds provided by internationally renowned guest Djs Wednesday through Sunday nights.  Come early and stay late, the dancing doesn't stop until 2am most evenings. 

The Music : Compact Disco has a focus on music programming that explores the rich history of Disco and House Music. Spearheaded by award winning music producer Kenny Summit who has served as music curator for luxury brands including Ralph Lauren, Kenzo, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Chanel, Dior, Prada, Armani and Burberry, our genre specific musical direction is in line with our event series that have taken place in Ibiza, Tulum, New York City, Cannes, Milan, Paris, Prague, Moscow, San Paulo, St Tropez, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Saint Barthelemy, Dubai, Berlin and Sydney.

OUR RULES (more like guidelines)

The experience our customers receive is paramount, therefore we have a strict NO CELLPHONE / NO PHOTOGRAPHY policy for our dancefloor area. 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.  You can take photos near the bar, just be sure to turn off your flash / light.  Our DRESS CODE is simple, no work clothing, no sportswear of any kind and no hats. You don't have to be dressed like you're going to the Oscars, but we do not allow lounge wear at our venue, so please make the effort to throw on a nice outfit. 

NO REQUESTS : Award winning producers and Djs perform at Compact Disco each and every weekend, therefore we have a strict NO REQUEST policy. We work hard to 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.


Compact Disco is an affiliation of Good For You Records and Afternoon Delight Records, family owned organizations with 75 years of hospitality 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.
