Teatro Peón Contreras, Calle 60 at Calle 57, and Teatro Ayala, Calle 60 at Calle 61, feature a wide range of performing artists from Mexico and around the world. Centro Cultural de Mérida Olimpo, on the main square, schedules frequent concerts; and Cine Mérida, a half-block north of the Olimpo, has two screens for showing classic and art films, and one live stage.

Mérida's club scene offers everything from ubiquitous rock/dance music to some one-of-a-kind spots. Most of the dance clubs are in the big hotels or on trendy Paseo de Montejo, such as the ever-so-cool El Cielo Lounge at Prolongación Montejo and Calle 25. For dancing, a small cluster of clubs on Calle 60, around the corner from Santa Lucía, offers live rock and Latin music. For salsa, go to Mambo Café in the Plaza las Américas shopping center.
