El Cid is a historic Silver Lake restaurant that presents a wide range of live entertainment, from flamenco and burlesque shows to stand-up comedy and DJs. A white stairwell winds down to a pleasantly lit red, black and gold room with plush leather booths. Outside, the sprawling patio features decorative plants and festive lighting. Early in the evening, the restaurant hosts authentic flamenco shows for a crowd of cozy couples and groups celebrating special occasions. Later in the evening, the DJs take over and play music ranging from rock and salsa to house.
