洛杉矶夜店攻略 - 嘻哈篇

最近国内节目“中国有嘻哈”牵起了一股嘻哈风,美国这边的嘻哈风气亦逐渐盛行,在电台节目或是大型运动比赛里都有嘻哈音乐的踪影。要真正感受洛杉矶里的夜店文化,嘻哈趴是绝对不能错过的。身在洛杉矶的您,快来看看城里最受欢迎的嘻哈夜店。

1 OAK LA

随着电音的冒起,顶级的嘻哈夜店已经越来越少。不过1 OAK 这个夜店品牌却屹立不倒,在洛杉矶、拉斯维加斯和纽约三大城市都有分店。时尚的设计和一流的服务是1 OAK 最大的卖点。就算不是经常有顶级的DJ坐镇,这里也是城中嘻哈爱好者的必然之选。加上这里不时会出现荷里活的A级明星,喜欢嘻哈和荷里活电影的您,快到这嘻哈夜店之王看看吧!Discotech现正提供1 OAK LA每星期五的免费Guestlist,有兴趣的朋友可以按以下的链接登记!

The Argyle

The Argyle主要分为酒吧和夜店两个部分。楼下的酒吧没有震耳欲聋的音乐,也灯光也比较通明,与楼上的夜店区形成强烈对比。The Argyle的老板在访问中提及夜店的设计主要想让客人可以随时到楼下的酒吧交谈,不用每次都对着对方的耳朵大喊。因此酒吧餐单上的鸡尾酒都是经过精心挑选和设计的,确保客人在休息的时候都能得到最好的补充。

Bootsy Bellows

曾是Trousdale Lounge的Bootsy Bellows由演员David Arquette一手创立,而店名是根据其母亲名字改的。2015的装潢将这里变成一家金碧辉煌的高级夜店,无论是服务和环境都是城中数一数二的。因为老板是名人,光顾这夜店的大多是富豪或明星。如果想看看荷里活明星的风采,记得来这边逛逛哦。不过男士的话,就可能需要订台才可以进去了。

Elevate Lounge

Elevate Lounge是城内比较特别的一家夜店。它位于市中心某高楼大夏的21楼,跟其他开在地面的夜店有着鲜明的对比。它窗外的景色俯瞰着市中心各式各样的高楼大夏,在霓虹灯下更能特显出洛杉矶的天际线,光是这个景象已经值回票价。场地方面,摩登的设计配上已白色为主的家具和墙壁,让Elevate能轻松融入市中心这个商业区。有兴趣的,这里10点半前都是免费入场的,而且是城里订台价钱较为低的夜店。

Hyde Sunset Lounge

晚上10点前的Hyde Sunset是一家高级餐厅。分针转到12的一刻,这里马上变成荷里活最豪华的夜店之一。由于地方比较小,而且价钱昂贵,所以光顾这里的大多是名人或富豪。每个星期一是嘻哈之夜,DJ会轮流播放经典和现代的嘻哈歌曲。到了周末,更会有著名DJ的演出,是嘻哈爱好者的天堂。想到Hyde走一趟的,要注意这里并不售卖夜店门票,想进去就要订台和卖酒哦。

Warwick

Warwick基本上是一家放满高级家具的旧货仓。暗淡的灯光配上红砖和火炉,却发出一种特别的吸引力,无损其高级夜店的身份。这里可是城里最难进的夜店之一,大部分派对都不设门票。想进去就得订台,或在门口碰碰運氣,但是保安通常只让美女进去。订台是常客们的必然选择,不过酒吧的饮料都由高级酒保调制,素质有所保证。Warwick有时候会请来有名的嘻哈DJ,谨记留意Discotech APP以获得最新信息。

洛杉矶夜店攻略-电音篇

电音可算是当今最受歡迎的音乐类型!EDC、Ultra、Escape等电音音乐节相信大家都不会陌生。洛杉矶虽然是个嘻哈城,但是电音在洛城里的影响力绝不比嘻哈逊色。来看看洛城最火的电音夜店吧!

Exchange LA (LA 市中心)

Exchange的前身是洛杉矶股票交易所。从2010年开业起一直是洛城里最好的电音夜店之一,世界排名更直逼40。四层高的Exchange可以容纳1500人、拥有6个酒吧和全城夜店里最多的洗手间。顶级的DJ包括Armin Van Buuren、Dash Berlin、Don Diablo等都曾在这里演出。每个周末排队进Exchange的人都会堵满整条街,所以记得尽早购票(留意Discotech独有的优惠代码)。

Academy (荷里活)

2017年12月31日 R3hab新年派对结束的一刻正式为Create的夜店生涯画上句号,取而代之的将会是Insomniac和Exchange联合创办的Academy。Academy的开幕秀会在1/12举行,由Krewella担当DJ。Benny Benassi、DVBBS、TNT等名DJ都会在接着的两星期在Academy打碟,千万别错过哦。不过现时Academy的网页和社交平台还没有透露太多改名后的变动,请大家拭目以待。

Avalon (荷里活)

Avalon在2003年由音乐厅成功转型成为夜店,自此可算是荷里活夜生活的地标之一。定期举行的18+/19+ 活动为Avalon带来了不小较年轻的面孔,是很多洛城大学生的首选。随着Avalon的客源不断增加,被请来演出的DJ也一个比一个出名。当区内大部分夜趴在凌晨2点已经结束的时候,Avalon这边还是播放着强劲音乐,一直开到3/4点。

Sound (荷里活)

Sound播放的主要是deep house/techno这一类地下音乐。这里的Funktion One音响系统绝对能让你感受到震撼,是一套世界各地很多夜店都引以为傲的利器。比起区内其他夜店,Sound算是比较小的一家,不过这样也代表里头的人们能亲密一点。如果跳舞跳饿了,大门旁边的小café有各式各样的小吃让您选择。Discotech长期提供免费的Sound宾客名单,要登记就赶紧下载我们的APP吧!

Most Exclusive Upscale Nightclubs in Los Angeles 2017

These exclusive Los Angeles nightclubs are not for the faint of heart. Packed full nearly every night of the week with local scenesters, beautiful trust fund babies and Los Angeles’ elites, there’s even a good chance that you run into a celebrity grinding on the dance floor, or catch an artist dropping in for a quick performance. All in a night’s work for places where the ultra expensive table minimum start in the thousands. Have your status and cash at the ready to get past the doorman at these night-time playgrounds of the rich and the famous – you’ll be rubbing shoulders with the most well heeled selection of LA high society, and they like to party hard. Most of these upscale venues do not do general admission – admission for ladies is at the door’s discretion, admission for guys requires bottle service. These are the most expensive nightclubs in LA:

1 Oak LA

You’re at a wild party, surrounded by shameless displays of excess.

Champagne spraying over tables. Beautiful women doing things they wouldn’t do within 200 miles of their mothers. Leonardo DiCaprio to your right, taking it all in with a leonine smile. No, you’re not in Wolf of Wall Street. Just hanging out at the new club on the Sunset Strip is all.

Meet 1 OAK, a New York–exported club heavy on champagne, hip-hop and already-frequent DiCaprio sightings, now open in the former Key Club spot. Like any good debaucherous club, its entrance is a cavernous hallway engraved with Charles Darwin’s writings—in case survival of the fittest wasn’t properly demonstrated at the red rope out front.

What this leads to: a massive ballroom of excess, with chevron floors, a massive marble bar, tan leather booths and… braille-studded paintings of gorillas. (Maybe to remind you again, as bottles swarm around you, of how far we’ve come as an evolved species.)

So, yeah, your night: big party situation. Someone in your group probably procured entry through the purchase of bottle service and table girls. Someone might be celebrating an Oscar nomination. Someone might exchange pleasantries with Jay Z and Bono, who’ve also been by.

West Hollywood // 10 PM – 2 AM // Tues, Thurs & Sat

Avenue

It’s not every day that a hot new club opens in Hollywood, but the Tao Group brings one of their most reliable nightlife concepts, Avenue, to the heart of Tinseltown starting tomorrow evening. A celebrity-riddled place in New York City, the Hollywood outlet is sure to bring in the same kind of A-list clientele as the Manhattan original, with a David Rockwell-designed space that spans a mere 4,000 square feet just outside the new Dream Hotel project.

Not massive, but just enough room to unleash some unabashed revelry. The place looks like a “grand estate frozen in time,” with plenty of custom design points and a lounge-style seating array. Expect world-class DJs spinning beats while the drink offerings are classic club-style booze: bottles and easy mixers. And when you get hungry, just pop over to Alvin Cailan’s pizza joint, Luchini, for slices and more. Tao, Beauty & Essex, and rooftop pool bar The Highlight Room will join Avenue for a NYC-style free for all in Hollywood.

Hollywood // 10 PM – 2AM // Tues, Fri, Sat

Warwick

Part rustic cocktail lounge part Hollywood club, Warwick (formerly Club L), a warehouse of exposed brick, fireplaces, and unfinished ceilings, opens October 5. The idea here is a simple one, but not always easy to execute. Take the typical Hollywood club, but give it more of a rough, indie feel, and vastly upgrade the alcoholic options to seasonal craft cocktails made with better booze and quality ingredients. As one can see from the layout, it’s a space suited to table/bottle service, but in this case the bar program, and yes, there’s a “bar program,” is executed by top talent Jason Bran and Damian Windsor who have likely liquored you up in the past four years at The Roger Room.

While one can always order a drink from the venue’s multiple bars, here’s how tableside cocktail service will work. Those who reserve a table score a personal cocktail attendant to make drinks throughout the night. A table might come with a choice spirit, fresh squeezed juice, housemade syrup or bitters, seasonal garnishes, housemade “foams,” and depending on the drink, fancy ice like this.

Hollywood // 10 PM – 2 AM // Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat

Nightingale Plaza

Nightingale Plaza is sbe’s latest nightclub concept located in the former Greystone Manor space, which is being reimagined as an avant-garde, nightclub named after Hollywood’s after-party-rich Bird Streets.

The entrance leads to an elegant lounge with surreal wallpaper strewn with phantom limbs, flowers with eyes and the occasional extraterrestrial dinosaur. sbe enlisted the renowned Rockwell Group for the design. Inside, guests can lounge, dine, or dance in four distinct environments. Between a sculpted fire place, mid-century banquettes and the state-of-the-art kinetic ceiling covered in 15 folding mirrored panels over the dance floor, there is something for everyone. The ceiling starts in a closed position and over the course of the evening, as the energy builds, the mirrored planes gradually unfold revealing a digital light show above creating a dramatic reflective landscape.

The most Instagrammable feature is the Rockwell Group-designed wallpaper, inspired by exotic foliage and magical surrealism. Plus, there’s a photo booth, lined in the wallpaper, that can easily fit eight-plus people. But have a game plan upon entering, because mastering the boomerang-like gif setup can take a minute. It’s only a matter of time before Nightingale gains mention in a hip-hop song, just like Drake and the Game did for its predecessor, Greystone Manor.

West Hollywood // 10 PM – 2 AM // Wed, Sat, Sun

Bootsy Bellows

Get a taste of tinseltown at Bootsy Bellows in WeHo, an original nighclub by David Arquette and the H.Wood group (Santa Monica’s Shore Bar). The ultimate LA hotspot boasts plush banquettes to lounge, while sipping specialty cocktails and taking in the a-list clientele. Hang out for live performances, burlesque shows, wild costume parties and dinner theatre spectacles. Snap a candid in the photo booth and capture one of the wildest parties the West has to offer.

West Hollywood // 10 PM – 2 AM // Tues, Fri, Sat

Villa Lounge

What is it, exactly, that keeps stars like Leonardo DiCaprio, Kanye West, Demi Moore, Javier Bardem and even 70-year-old Dustin Hoffman (his son DJs there) coming back to Villa night after night despite the near-constant presence of paparazzi?

It starts with the design.

“There’s sort of an overtone of a bordello,” says Villa’s lead designer and architect, Lionel Ohayon, of the bar. “The general idea is that it’s a residential house . . . but an eccentric Hollywood Hills home. Things seem very familiar, but a little off-center at the same time.”

Which brings us back to the concept of creating a club that feels like someone’s (slightly bawdy) home. “You have to know someone in order to come in,” says the lounge’s owner, former SBE heavyweight Reza Roohi.

The best person to know at Villa? Roohi himself.

“I just created a ‘Villa black card,’ ” he says of the radio-frequency identification VIP cards that will go into operation in the next few weeks. “Certain clients, people like Michael Bay, will get these. If the door guy doesn’t recognize you when you pull up at valet, it will send a [radio] signal to a hand-held device with the door man, with the customer’s picture and vital stats.”

Such is one of the most exclusive spots in LA.

West Hollywood // 10 PM – 2 AM // Tues & Fri

Hyde Sunset

Meet Hyde Sunset Kitchen + Cocktails, the huger, patio-wrapped-restaurant reincarnation of SBE’s infamous celebrity hideout, now with former Whist/41 Ocean chef Chris Crary in the kitchen—opening Sunday at the old XIV space in West Hollywood.

It looks like a great dinner-date spot in here. A moody room of raw woods, Eastern carpets and hanging metal sprockets that all cultivate a breezy, arty Beachwood Canyon cabin vibe. For, well, a this-section-of-Sunset crowd.

But your ultimate aim is a rustic wooden table out on the patio, under trees and a graffiti-scrawled mural by the wood-burning fireplace. That’s what industry experts call a clincher. Then comes the fried-chicken-and-kimchi buttermilk-biscuit sliders, sambuca mussels, a ribeye and, if the occasion requires, a four-pound lobster.

Soon, they’ll open the lounge back near the entrance, full of the old bottle-service shenanigans.

West Hollywood // 10:30 PM – 2 AM // Thurs, Fri, Sat 

Highlight Room

The Dream Hollywood’s final concept is here, and boy it’s beauty. The Highlight Room takes over the rooftop and poolside at the mod hotel, which officially opens tonight with some of the sweetest views in Hollywood. With clear cut vistas looking out to Hollywood and beyond, it’s clearly outfitted to become an evening party space, what with speakers galore, two DJ booths, and bottle service.

The far corner of the rooftop contains a decent number of dinner tables, where they’ll have full service. Think hamachi crudo, lobster toast, chopped chicken salad, and grilled prawns, with some amazing views to boot.

The southern stretch of the space feels more like a nightclub, with low-flung tables and and pricey cocktails (Ace of Spade bottles run a cool $1K, for the ballers out there). Revelers looking to relax by the pool, which takes the center of the rooftop, could sip on a boozy watermelon lemonade while taking bites of wagyu sliders and pea hummus. Cabanas require reservations, and the entire roof is only available to hotel guests during the day. Starting at 6 p.m. on weekdays, things open up to the public, except on weekends when the rooftop opens at 1 p.m. for everyone.

Hollywood – 10:30 – 2 AM, Wed – Sat

XIV Sessions

Made famous for their “sensory overload of neon, confetti, CO2, electrifying music, beautiful people and the phrase ‘save water, spray champagne,’ XIV Sessions had become the dayclub destination in LA.

Spinning only the latest and greatest songs and artists, XIV embodies fun, excitement and tons of flair. There’s no mistaking it, XIV is the place you go when you want to have a good time. And though the party kicks off every year during May, the XIV Sessions is no longer just a spring and summer affair; outside of the LA area, they’ve expanded to seasonal fall and winter parties in Las Vegas and Miami.

It’s impossible to have a mediocre time at XIV Sessions. The dayclub was designed to make sure that every guest, every dancer and every party-goer has the time of their life – and will be back again for more. This year’s XIV sessions is being hosted at Skybar at the Mondrian.

West Hollywood // Pool Sessions – 12 Noon – 5 PM, Sunset Sessions – 5 PM – 10 PM // Sundays

Best Rooftop Bars in Los Angeles – Hollywood, Beverly Hills, DTLA, Weho

What is it that they say about smog? Oh yeah, beautiful sunsets. Make L.A.’s haze work for you at these cocktail bars and beachside spots, where the views rightfully rival the booze. From Downtown’s bars with a view to seaside cabanas in Malibu and Venice, here are the city’s top (literally) rooftop bars.

Highlight Room – Hollywood

The Highlight Room takes over the rooftop and poolside at the mod hotel, which officially opens tonight with some of the sweetest views in Hollywood. With clear cut vistas looking out to Hollywood and beyond, it’s clearly outfitted to become an evening party space, what with speakers galore, two DJ booths, and bottle service.

The Roof on Wilshire – Central LA

From weekend brunch—tuck into pancake lasagna as you sip on mimosas—to sunset drinks and bites, you’ll find full views paired with staycation cocktails and eats at the Hotel Wilshire’s rooftop restaurant and lounge. As nights get cooler, slip into one of the banquettes that line the pool and warm up with drinks like the Cue Southside, with gin, cucumber and mint; or El Ristocrat, with tequila, agave and bitters.

Perch LA – Downtown LA

This rooftop bistro is one of the prettiest in town with its patterned tile floors, dead-on view of the Central Library and potted trees full of twinkly lights. Downtown locals, plus a few hundred of their closest friends, sit on velour bar stools and plush sofas inside the eclectic boudoir-themed bar or fireside on the outdoor patio. From any seat, you’ll want to sample the wide selection of Kirs that go beyond Crème de Cassis—try a tasty, blackberry-flavored Crème de Mure—and other French by-the-glass pours. The after-work crowd drops in for happy hour, dubbed Apéritif Hour, weekdays from 4 to 6pm, while late-night partygoers can enjoy a live DJ on Tuesdays from 9pm-2am.

Petit Ermitage – West Hollywood

Just off the hustle and bustle of the Sunset Strip, this West Hollywood boutique gem boasts boho-chic rooms with European touches and overwhelming charm. Take in the 360° vistas of Los Angeles from the rooftop (often overlooked by locals as a relaxing hangout spot), complete with outdoor pool, fireplaces, two bars, patio and garden, recognized as a hummingbird and butterfly sanctuary by the National Wildlife Federation.

High Rooftop Lounge – Venice

Beachside rooftops are in surprisingly short supply in L.A., making the Hotel Erwin’s High Rooftop Lounge an in-demand spot for sun-kissed Venice Beach locals. Even if you’re staying at the hotel, be sure to make a reservation. There’s nothing like a multi-hued sunset over the Pacific with a cocktail in hand to get Angelenos buzzing. Getting chilly? Evening bar-goers can stay past sundown wrapped up in one of the bar’s cozy blankets, along with a spiked cocoa or hot root beer float. If you don’t like your drinks sweet, stick to local craft brews to pair with midnight (gourmet) munchies like the mini lobster roll and a bacon, cream cheese, jalapeño hot dog.

E.P. L.P. Rooftop Bar – West Hollywood

There’s a party happening at the intersection of La Cienega and Melrose—and while everyone is invited, not everyone may fit in. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give L.P. Rooftop a try, though. Located above E.P., a restaurant featuring a hodgepodge of Asian cuisine, you’ll find L.P., a rooftop bar with killer views and a swanky clientele. Share a pitcher of spiked bubble tea and Fijian nachos with new friends or industry colleagues as the sun sets on West Hollywood. If you’re lucky, you might be able to get into the super exclusive patch of rooftop known as Frankie’s, a private bar with daybeds.

Standard Downtown – DTLA

Even if you don’t hop in the pool, you can still plunge into the fun on one of the bright red waterbed pods scattered across the roof at the Downtown outpost of Andre Balaz’s hip hotel. Take the elevator up to the top, where mod furnishings give a slightly space-age vibe—the perfect backdrop for a crowd ranging from folks waiting for next year’s Burning Man to hotel guests checking out the scene. Weekend afternoons call for cocktail lounging—try the sweet and sour Hennessy Lemonade—but beware the $20 cover after 7pm, which doesn’t deter the lines that can stretch out into the parking lot.

Mama Shelter – Hollywood

We’re big fans of Mama Shelter as a hotel and a restaurant, but once we saw the rooftop, we decided we just might move in for good. The bright space is splattered with multicolored sofas and chairs where you can lounge while waiting for shawarma to arrive; the Mediterranean-inspired menu also serves falafel, salmon skewers and a few hummus options. Cocktails also pay tribute to the Mediterranean, with drinks like the Za’atar Margarita and Mediterranean Mule. On warm nights, you can dance under the stars while DJs spin an eclectic mix of music, or take in a classic movie on their outdoor screen. There’s also a fusbol table, a yoga studio and sweeping views of Hollywood. Like we said—we’re never leaving.

Upstairs – DTLA

Look good—but not like you’re trying too hard—when visiting Upstairs, a Moroccan oasis perched atop the trendy Ace Hotel. The elevator next to L.A. Chapter is your key to getting inside (or rather, outside) the buzzing, open-air roof deck, swathed in an exotic canopy and scattered with hip Downtowners clutching plastic cups. Perfect for an after-work schmooze or a reunion with old friends, you’ll find two bars to order a drink from (be warned: weekends bring the requisite long lines). Try the Lefty Lucy, a surprisingly easy-to-drink concoction made with chile liqueur, peach liqueur, ginger, lime and yellow chartreuse.

SkyBar – WeHo

The rooftop bar that started it all, the Mondrian’s Skybar still retains its secret Sunset Strip entryway, complete with dress-to-impress entry and nightlife cred—this is one of the rare poolside bars where people really do jump in after a night of cocktails. The all-ages crowd ranges from wide-eyed ingénues to aging Robert Evans types, but no matter where you fall on the spectrum, the Mexican-style oasis of flowering walls and gorgeous nooks will win you over, especially with a mojito in hand.

Above SIXTY Beverly Hills – Beverly Hills

Above SIXTY provides both a name and directions to this exclusive hotel bar. Open to Sixty Beverly Hills guests, members and cabana reservations during the day, this ritzy rooftop lounge is open to the public for a swanky bar crowd at night. The rooftop lounge offers wine, beer and cocktails, like the Strawberry Smash crafted with vodka and fresh muddled strawberries. Appetizers and meals, from kale salads to crab cakes, are also available on the roof of the sleek hotel, as are occasional weekend pool parties. You’ll pay a pretty penny for your libations, but it’s worth it for the view.

The Fonda Theatre – Hollywood

A smoke break doesn’t mean that you’ll miss the show at Hollywood’s Fonda Theatre, where not only is the music hooked up to the rooftop “speakeasy,” but the live on-stage performance is also projected on the exterior wall. Unfortunately, you do have to buy tickets to the gig to gain entrance, but the prime perch—lounge on one of the scattered sofas on the outdoor patio—from the historic Spanish Revival–style building offers an unobstructed view of Hollywood as you listen to indie faves like Alt-J and the Alabama Shakes. Throw back a brewski and gaze down the boulevard as you channel your inner Dracula, performed on the Fonda stage soon after it opened in 1926.

Moonshadows – Malibu

Forget flip-flops and sunscreen—dolphin sightings are de rigueur at this longtime PCH watering hole. With an outdoor lounge area lined with white beds and curtained booths that hang right over the Pacific, you’re practically within blowhole distance of the pods that swim close to shore. Catch afternoon rays at weekend brunch or laze on the sundeck at sunset or after dark, when Malibu locals turn out for margaritas and the salt air mixes with pretty young things.

Best Pool Parties in Los Angeles 2017

Nothing quite captures the summer season more than swimsuits, rooftop bars and poolside soirees (though outdoor adventures and ice cream take a close second). When it comes to Vegas-style pool parties and laid-back, rooftop gatherings, L.A.’s buzzy social events calendar has enough lively happenings to keep you entertained all summer long. The season events have officially kicked off with a splash of pool parties thrown at shindig-friendly hotels around town, from the heart of Hollywood to the rooftops of Downtown Los Angeles. If you’re looking to lounge (or dance) by the pool, music in ear and cocktail in hand, be prepared to arrive early or grab a hotel room the night before, as most parties cap out at 500 people. Of course, the fastest way to a coveted cabana or table space is via bottle service packages, which can run hundreds of dollars, but you’ll buy the best seat in the house. Book bottle service, buy tickets, and sign up for guestlist directly on our free mobile app. Here are some of the best summer pool party options in LA:

SLS Beverly Hills

Sure, the ultra-modern SLS Beverly Hills offers an incredible spa, dining options and amenities, but the true gem of the hotel is the Altitude Pool. Nestled on the hotel rooftop, the pool area offers breathtaking views of Los Angeles, along with poolside service, refreshing cocktails and light bites from chef José Andrés. Starting the first week of May, Altitude Pool turns into a swanky day lounge complete with a live DJ, who will set the musical backdrop from 1pm-5pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The pool is open to hotel guests only unless you reserve a cabana (for a pretty penny). Of course, you could also book a weekend staycation for the rooftop pool itself. Fergie had her baby shower there—just sayin’.

W Hollywood

Who said a pool party can’t also be a workout? This summer, the W Hollywood rooftop pool and bar, aptly dubbed Wet, is hosting a weekly series called Get Fit with Brit Middleton, Eryt and Hot 8 Yoga. Guests can head to the Wet Deck at 10am for a different kind of pool party where they’ll swap out the boozy bashes for a lively workout with great tunes and an incredible view of the city. The best part? It’s completely free. Enjoy a cocktail by the bar or hang by the pool for a well-deserved post-workout treat. As for the rest of the weekend, DJs will be spinning from 1pm to 5pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Though the Wet deck is primarily reserved for hotel guests, daybeds and cabanas can be reserved for non-guests with food and beverage spending minimums.

Mondrian

The Mondrian hotel, West Hollywood’s luxury boutique getaway, is home to the ever-popular Skybar, a pool and bar that offers one of the best views in L.A. From May 5th to June 9th, Angelenos can head to the rooftop for the ultimate pre-weekend pool party, aptly dubbed Just Ditch Fridays. Let loose and lounge poolside every Friday from 1-6pm to spins from DJ Arron Colbert, while toasting to the freaking weekend. Plus, be on the lookout for upcoming pool parties like the returning Wicked Paradise, which will hold court at Skybar on Saturday, May 27—just in time for Memorial Day weekend. The premier pool party event is kicking off the summer season with Dirtybird Records, J.Philip and more.

The Standard, Downtown Los Angeles

The Downtown version of the Sunset Strip shag pad pokes fun at jet-setting ’60s bachelors, with the lobby setting the swinger-style tone. Rooms come equipped with platform beds, tubs for two and peek-a-boo showers. Complete with DJs, vibrating waterbeds and views, the rooftop pool bar can be a tough ticket on weekends for non-guests (must meet a $35 food and beverage minimum), but it’s totally worth it for a weekend day rager. Plus, the Paradise Unlimited Swim Club is taking over the rooftop pool on May 13 from 3pm to 9pm, featuring DJ Dino Soccio, Colour Vision and a string of special guests. Check out the hotel’s event calendar for a full listing of poolside soirees this summer.

Tropicana

If you’re looking to party poolside in the heart of Hollywood, this longstanding hotel is your perfect go-to. After a 2003 restoration by designer Dodd Mitchell, this 1927 landmark, a beautiful example of Spanish colonial design, once more welcomed the A-listers who frequented it during Hollywood’s heyday. On the weekends, you’ll often find Tinseltown’s It crowd at the often-buzzing bar scene and mingling on the open-air lounge chairs by the pool. Speaking of the pool, it also features a restored underwater mural by renowned illustrator David Hockney. While every Saturday night is a pool party within itself, you can go big and head to Tropicana Sundays grand opening bash on May 7 from 2pm to 7pm, which will feature L.A.’s top DJs. Plus, check out the upcoming ADLT SWM party on May 14 and PROPER, a monthly swim series at the Hollywood Roosevelt. Sip on cocktails, dance and enjoy a dose of L.A. sunshine by the pool.

Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles

On the hunt for a trendy rooftop scene, tasty cocktails by the pool, and an insane view of Downtown L.A.’s city skyline? You’ll want to head to the ever-popular Ace Hotel. While guests won’t exactly be doing a canon ball into the small pool that’s more like a large hot tub, the Ace rooftop bar and pool lounge is the perfect spot for prime nightlife entertainment and late-night cocktails. Bonus? The hotel is constantly bringing in some of L.A.’s best DJs and live bands to set the tunes while you bop your head and take in the city views—cocktail in hand. Every Sunday, Dublab will present a rotating mix of DJs at “Dublab Vibing Time” from 1pm to 6pm. Check the hotel calendar for a full list of events and DJs hitting the rooftop this summer. If you’re really hankering for a Vegas-style pool party, head to the Ace Hotel’s Palm Springs branch to catch the recurring Swim Club bash.

Shade Hotel Manhattan Beach

Shade Hotel in Manhattan Beach is holding rooftop pool parties this summer. They are the first Sunday of each month, with the dates being June 5, July 3 (yes, on Fourth of July weekend!), Aug. 7 and Sept. 4. They are held on the hotel’s Skydeck and features a bar, DJ and a special menu provided by the hotel’s fun-loving chef Ashley Oats. It goes from 1 p.m.-dusk (sunsets are at approximately 7:30) and there is no admission charge. This is open to anyone and it’s a rare treat, as the rooftop is normally reserved for hotel guests and special events. There are also not very many pools in the South Bay, so that’s different, as well. Yes, we have a beach here but not any pools open to the public. Here, you can wear your bikinis or board shorts and go for a swim without having to dodge surfers, kids and ocean waves.

Bonus: Ace Hotel & Swim Club Palm Springs

While it’s a bit of a trek from L.A. to Palm Springs, the Ace Hotel’s buzzy pool parties make a weekend getaway well worth your while. The desert locale is home to the Swim Club, which hosts a variety of pool parties throughout summer. Kicking off the summer pool party season (though it’s practically year-round) is Memorial Day weekend with the third annual Desert Days event running from May 24th to May 28th. Prepare for a mix of DJs, live music, stand-up comedians, pool parties, R-rated bingo, arts & crafts and more. Be on the lookout for more daytime pool parties on the Ace Hotel’s event calendar, which are sure to roll out during the sumer.

The Highlight Room at the Dream Hotel Set to Open Next Week

The Dream Hollywood’s final concept is here, and boy it’s beauty. The Highlight Room takes over the rooftop and poolside at the mod hotel, which officially opens tonight with some of the sweetest views in Hollywood. With clear cut vistas looking out to Hollywood and beyond, it’s clearly outfitted to become an evening party space, what with speakers galore, two DJ booths, and bottle service.

The far corner of the rooftop contains a decent number of dinner tables, where they’ll have full service. Think hamachi crudo, lobster toast, chopped chicken salad, and grilled prawns, with some amazing views to boot.

The southern stretch of the space feels more like a nightclub, with low-flung tables and and pricey cocktails (Ace of Spade bottles run a cool $1K, for the ballers out there). Revelers looking to relax by the pool, which takes the center of the rooftop, could sip on a boozy watermelon lemonade while taking bites of wagyu sliders and pea hummus. Cabanas require table service reservations, and the entire roof is only available to hotel guests during the day. Starting at 6 p.m. on weekdays, things open up to the public, except on weekends when the rooftop opens at 1 p.m. for everyone.
