Mr. Wonderful – Latin House Volume One: Booty Trax (A Side) [199x]

“The club’s official name is Polonaise, the party producers call their events “The Polo Club,” but the neon sign inside the joint lights up just enough letters to read Polon.

It may be a little awkward, but the name game says a lot about the place. An old Polish club that has been around since either the mid-19th Century, 1901 or the 1930s — depending on which security guard, barkeep or customer you’re listening to — Polonaise is a cavernous old nightspot with a wide-open dance floor, plenty of seating room in the dance hall and a separate bar room for serious adult drinkers, talkers, and anyone interested in a friendly game of pool.

There’s agreement that, once upon a time, Polonaise was a hangout for Polish immigrants, then slowly but surely lost its client base when the neighborhood — the bungalows that line the residential streets off Belmont and Milwaukee — went from European to Latino and, now, slowly, to American-born white yuppies.

No problem on Thursdays and Saturdays, though. Al Cisneros (cousin to writer Sandra), formerly of the Alcatraz club, has put together a pair of lively weekly teen parties that draw a mightily mixed, relatively friendly crowd: second-generation neighborhood kids, service folks from the Great Lakes naval base who want to party but aren’t old enough to get into real bars yet, and hipsters who just want to dance to the B96-sponsored music (that means the kind of heavy bass that’ll push your heart through your throat). Every now and then, they mix in Latin rock or salsa, causing a flurry and scramble on the floor.” …
