Opened in September 2006, Boulevard3 was sparked by Famulari’s initial reaction to the space five years ago. A former denizen of New York City, he says, “This was how I visualized clubs: big, free-flowing, dramatic. I felt it was the only place that could possibly follow Skybar.” Having experienced such New York venues as Studio 54 and The Tunnel in their heyday, he was also motivated to open a venue that shattered the malaise of the typical club scene. “There really are no dance places in Los Angeles,” states Famulari, who probably knows L.A. nightlife better than anyone after working to keep Skybar hot for nearly a decade. “People go to clubs and stare at each other.”
An intimate “manor library” takes guests inside Boulevard3. Gaining a sense of grandeur with its vaulted ceiling and marble fireplace, the library blends old and new through the art on its walls: ornate picture frames with DLP projection screens displaying dynamic images as opposed to portraits of dead kings and placid countrysides. When the main ballroom is open, the library serves as an antechamber; otherwise it can function as a freestanding space accommodating its own bar.
The intimacy of Boulevard3’s library opens to a 7,500-sq. ft., three-level ballroom, including a 1,500-sq. ft. dance floor (the former Olympic-sized pool of the old Hollywood Athletic Club -prior to embodying the role of Flash Gordon, Johnny Weissmuller served as its lifeguard and trained to win a gold medal in the 1932 Olympics). Capable of accommodating a large stage for live performances, the ballroom features a main bar situated beneath 30′ high ceilings and a majestic skylight.
Around the periphery of the ballroom, a Mezzanine is set three feet above the main floor that provides a perfect locale to experience dance floor festivities. For the perfect mix of luxury and comfort, the mezzanine boasts a 36′ long plush velvet couch with unobstructed views of the “Niche of Possibilities”. As you move onto the dance floor, Boulevard3’s design further challenges the senses by interpolating the worlds of hospitality and entertainment. Interlocking platforms are carefully plotted to set the stage for dynamic performances that occur throughout the evening. Ranging from innovative cirque performances to full choreographed shows, Boulevard3’s guests are provided an unforgettable experience.
