Bootsy Bellows

Bootsy Bellows has been an L.A. nightlife staple since it entered the scene in 2012, and has been under renovations since August 2018 with John Sofio of Built, Inc. to design and bring the revamped space to life, this time with a more homey aesthetic.

Drake’s personal sound guy was brought in to work on the DJ booth and speakers, embedded LED lights were added to the walls and ceilings to put on custom light shows. A VIP table is highly recommended, you can book bottle service at Bootsy Bellows here. Bootsy Bellows open on Tuesday, Friday and Saturdays, 11 PM – 2 AM.

Upcoming events at Bootsy Bellows

Poppy

The celeb-faved nightlife gurus at H.Wood Group are at it again. After debuting of Delilah last year, the company has unveiled Poppy, a stylishly surreal space that’s already hosted a star-studded VMA’s after-party before the paint has even dried. Entry is at doorman’s discretion; bottle service at Poppy is highly recommended.

Upcoming events at Poppy

Hyde Sunset

Meet Hyde Sunset, 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. Entry is at the doorman’s discretion. We highly recommend bottle service at Hyde Sunset.

PRO TIP: Make dinner reservations around 8:30 PM and enjoy free access to the nightclub an hour our two later when things transform.

Upcoming events at Hyde Sunset

Nightingale

Landing just up the street from celeb hangout The Nice Guy on La Cienega in STK’s former space, the whimsical concept bar will be open Thursdays, Fridays and Monday from 10 PM to 2 AM.

In the former Greystone Manor location, this buzzy nightclub from sbe is home to a thumping dance floor; two adjacent lounges that are more demure but no doubt clubby; and an oasis-like patio. Despite futuristic touches like mirrored ceilings and LED walls, Nightingale Plaza has a vaguely “European courtyard” theme, which explains the trippy, floral wallpaper throughout. Expect signature, pricey drinks like the Smart Blonde (Absolut Citron, St. Germain, Limoncello, lemon juice, simple syrup) and the Tequila Mockingbird (Avion, lime juice, honey), and of course, bottle service. Nightingale is the hottest Sunday party in LA. Entry is at doorman’s discretion; bottle service at Nightingale is highly recommended.

Upcoming events at Nightingale

1 OAK

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. 

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 bottled spirits and table girls. Someone might be celebrating an Oscar nomination. Someone might exchange pleasantries with Jay Z and Bono, who’ve also been by.

Entry is at doorman’s discretion; bottle service at 1 Oak is highly recommended. Open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10 PM to 2 AM.

Upcoming events at 1 Oak

Delilah

Delilah brings a modern approach to the vibes of the roaring ‘20s with American cuisine and Art Deco characteristics. Eating, drinking, and dancing converge in this luxury space and are tastefully crafted so you can repeat all three without ever skipping a beat. Live performers & surprise acts with lounge-style bottle service following dinner hours. Entry is at the doorman’s discretion. We recommend booking bottle service at Delilah.

Delilah is open 6:30 PM – 2 AM Tuesday through Saturday night.

Upcoming events at Delilah

Raspoutine

Meet LA’s newest hot spot, Raspoutine. The latest French import comes in the form of a nightclub: Paris’ Raspoutine has officially opened its doors in West Hollywood.

“We tried to bring something that doesn’t exist and something that was maybe missing here,” says co-owner Alexander Ghislain, who owns the four global Raspoutine locations with Logan Maggio.

Open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10:30 PM to 2:00 AM.

Entry is at the doorman’s discretion, bottle service at Raspoutine is recommended.

Upcoming events at Raspoutine

The Nice Guy

We get why Kendall had her 20th birthday there, Kylie had one of her many 18th birthday parties here, and why all the Jenners, Kardashians, Hadids, Baldwins, and Justin Bieber are spotted there just about every weekend; it’s super dimly lit (a tribute to The Rat Pack) and feels like you’re inside one big private party. Welcome to The Nice Guy.

You, too, can live like you’re in a celebrity Instagram photo by booking a VIP table at The Nice Guy here. (Walk-ins are not welcomed.) And make sure you dress the part, because that door doesn’t mess around.

Upcoming events at The Nice guy

Doheny Room

Mood lighting? Check. Celebrity sightings? Check. Bare-legged, high-heeled model types? Check. It’s 9 p.m. on a Saturday night inside Doheny Room


Sandwiched between two landmarks, the Troubadour music venue and Dan Tana’s restaurant on Santa Monica Boulevard where West Hollywood meets Beverly Hills, the lounge-like eatery has quickly become the area’s newest spot to see and be seen since its soft opening in late April. Alicia Vikander, Chris Brown, Caroline Vreeland, Vanessa Hudgens with Ashley Tisdale – and, fascinatingly, Keanu Reeves with Winona Ryder – have all been spotted. Ready to commit? Make VIP bottle service reservations at Doheny Room here.

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。

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。

1) Markus Schulz NYE 2018 Open-To-Close @ Avalon


Global trance music legend Markus Schulz – known for his marathon 10-12 hour DJ sets – waves goodbye to 2017 with a thunderous DJ set that promises not to end until after the sun dawns on the new year. The host and spearhead of Global DJ Broadcast presented on Sirius/XM and DI.fm, Schulz spent the past year bringing the funky island beats and nonstop party culture of Ibiza to his listeners via his “Ibiza Summer Sessions” segments. You can expect a similar festive atmosphere from the beginning to end of the night from the head of Coldharbour Recordings and one of Germany’s most famous exports, as he brings in the New Year at one of Hollywood’s longest-running and most famous electronic music venues.

Time: 9:00 PM – 6:00 AM

Venue: Avalon (735 Vine Street, Los Angeles, CA 90028)

2) New Year’s Eve 2018 @ Le Jardin

Escape to the South of France this New Year’s Eve at LA’s chicest plein air venue, and join LA’s sophisticated set with a high class celebration under the stars. With ambient lighting, stylish décor, and a strong celebrity following – 2 Chainz, Lance Bass, Sam Ronson, Lebron James, and Amber Rose have all hosted events there – Le Jardin is a unique setting for visitors and locals to party their NYE away. Guests will enjoy the perks of a 5-hour premium open bar as well as a live DJ spinning an open format selection of Top 40, Hip-Hop, House, and Mash-Ups. There will be a live countdown to midnight, and the venue will offer a toast to the New Year with a complimentary glass of champagne and complimentary NYE party favors. Home & Garden meets French glamour and high-voltage nightlife on North Cahuenga Blvd at the exceptional Le Jardin.

Time: 9:00 PM – 2:00 AM

Venue: Le Jardin (1430 N Cahuenga Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028)

 

3) NYE 2018 f/ R3hab @ Create

From the influential Dutch electronic music circuit to his place at the forefront of global dance music, R3HAB now stands for a brand everyone can sink their teeth into. Catapulted into the limelight courtesy of a string of successful original material and remixes, his is a stamp of high quality recognized on club floors, festival stages and the digital market alike.  2017 marked another year in which Holland’s hottest export dropped anchor on every corner of the globe: he is now up to 262 million SoundCloud streams, 184+ million Spotify streams, and 1+ billion video views.  To wrap up his successful year, R3hab teams up with powerhouse EDM promotions group Insomniac Events to produce a blockbuster finale show deep in the heart of Hollywood.

Time: 10:00 PM – 3:00AM

Venue: Create (6021 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90028)

4) Greystone Sundays NYE 2018 @ Nightingale

“Greystone, twenty bottles that’s all me / On the couch, wildin’ out, yelling free my n*ggas ’til they all free!”  Drake’s memorable line from French Montana’s 2012 summer anthem “Pop That” made the infamous Greystone Manor THE “must-visit” L.A. hotspot for hip-hop stars, pro athletes, and black Hollywood for a good four-year run up until its closure in 2015.  In late 2016 the venue reopened as Nightingale, and it now finds itself no less exclusive, no less packed with celebrities, and no less in demand to locals and tourists alike.   For years LA’s Made Nightlife Group has thrown weekly star-studded hip-hop events at Tier 1 nightclubs Bootsy Bellows and 1OAK among others all over L.A., but Greystone Manor was certainly their claim to fame… so much so that they kept the name and branded it onto their signature Sunday night events at Nightingale.  The New Year’s Eve version of Greystone Sundays at Nightingale figures to be quite the wild cherry on top of yet another banner year for this hard-partying promotions crew and their loyal followers.

Time: 9:00 PM – 2:00 AM

Venue: Nightingale (643 N La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90069)

5) Carpe Noctem NYE 2018 @ The Argyle

The Argyle Hollywood in conjunction with OurNightlife Group invites you to Carpe Noctem (“seize the night”) – a New Year’s Eve show with intriguing performances lined up to wow the well-dressed crowd.  Gatsby-esque decadence – wear your costumes! – and Vegas-style excess converge at Hollywood’s most exclusive champagne jam, with Open Format/Top 40 sounds by LA resident DJs in both the main room and the ultra-hip downstairs fireplace lounge.  Tickets and tables include a 5-hour premium liquor open bar, tray-passed hors d’oeuvres by renowned local chefs, craft cocktails and mixology at the open-air patio bar, and a champagne toast at midnight.

Time: 9:00 PM – 3:00 AM

Venue: The Argyle Hollywood (1600 N Argyle Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90028)

6) Hyde Wide Shut NYE 2018 Masquerade Ball @ Hyde Sunset

Step into a world of intrigue and sensuality as the SBE Group and HYDE Sunset suit up to curate a night of intriguing indulgences this New Year’s Eve.  There will be a 4-hour premium open bar presented by Absolut Elyx, Avion Tequila, & Perrier-Jouet, a DJ-led countdown to the New Year, and a complimentary midnight champagne toast.  Also, there will be a surprise live performance by a super-secret artist to ring in the new year.  Upscale attire is encouraged, and masks will be required to enter.  Book your tickets and tables now, then spend the last two weeks of 2017 doing your homework on Stanley Kubrick and what to expect out of this wild party.

Time: 9:00 PM – 3:00 AM

Venue: Hyde Sunset (8029 Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90046)

7) New Year’s Party @ The Reserve

If your idea of ringing in 2018 is to take it back to 1986, then The Reserve is most certainly the place for you, preppy.   A vault once filled with riches of the wealthiest Angelenos of generations past, the modern-day Reserve Cocktail Club in Downtown Los Angeles continues its tradition of excellence and sophistication by giving old-school elegance a new-school flair.   For NYE the venue will feature two rooms of music playing the best top 40, R&B and 80s/90s Throwbacks all night long. All tickets and bottle service packages will include a 5-hour open bar (9pm to 2am), midnight toast, photo booth pictures, party favors, and a special Midnight countdown celebration in each room.  Time to get SO EXCITED to party the night away!

Time: 9:00 PM – 2:00 PM

Venue: The Reserve Cocktail Club ( 650 S. Spring Street, Los Angeles, CA 90014)

More events and more venues for New Year’s Eve 2018 in Los Angeles can be found on the Discotech app.  Have a safe night out with your friends, please don’t drink and drive, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

Best Clubstaurants (Restaurant + Club Combos) in LA

What, exactly, is a clubstaurant? It’s the kind of place you go to not necessarily for the food, but more for the late night debauchery that accompanies it. Often with the aid of a live DJ and bountiful bar, clubstaurants are a destination in themselves, which means you’re likely to stay long after you meal has concluded. Here now are the best places in LA to both start and end your night, presented from north to south.

1 Beauty & Essex

There are few restaurants that encapsulate glitz and glam more than Beauty & Essex, the stunning restaurant in Hollywood’s new Dream Hotel complex. The gigantic 10,000 square foot space replicates the whimsy of the pawn shop façade in the Lower East Side flagship, with some of the same hits like grilled cheese and tomato soup dumplings that are easy snacks to nibble on while libations flow.

2 Tao

While Tao Las Vegas holds the title of highest grossing restaurant in America, the new Los Angeles outpost, also adjacent to the Dream Hotel, should follow suit soon enough. The cavernous location serves approachable, pan-Asian fare in dark, sexy digs that include an animated, twenty foot tall Quan Yin floating statue.

3 Hyde Sunset

There’s no denying that Hyde Sunset‘s beautifully designed space has all the right vibes to kick off a night out. Start off with sharable plates from Top Chef alum Chris Crary, and stay for the bottle service lounge atmosphere that gets clubbier as the night turns to early morning.

4 Delilah

Step through the paparazzi-flocked doors of h.wood Group’s (The Nice Guy, Peppermint Club) latest venture, and instantly feel transported to the Rat Pack glory days rife with live music, burlesque dancers, and plenty of pretty people. Have a tuxedoed server serve you classic American dishes, sip on novel cocktails like the mini bottle service that comes with the Champagne Papi (which you can sometimes find Drake himself sipping from one of the prime booths), and indulge in a clubstaurant experience that feels a little more grown up than the rest.

5 Blind Dragon

Blind Dragon recently went under the knife to become a full dining experience in the vein of h.wood’s other restaurants Delilah and Nice Guy. That means new seating that is conducive to a sit-down meal of Asian-inspired snacks off of a revamped menu. Of course, there’s still the elevated karaoke experience that is fueled by a stellar cocktail list.

6 Ysabel West Hollywood

You’d be wise to make an early dinner reservation at cool kid hangout Ysabel. Swing by a little too late in the evening, and you’d better dress the part to pass the doorman, who assures that only a certain type of crowd can sip decently made libations in its pretty surroundings.

7 E.P & L.P.

What is widely considered one of West Hollywood’s most beautiful rooftops is host to plenty of pretty people, boozy boba cocktails, fantastic Southeast Asian bites that come by way of chef Louis Tikaram, and loungey late night bar vibes.

8 Doheny Room

sbe’s Doheny Room is the sort of place where the ideal dinner reservations are later than 8 p.m. to kick off a long night of revelry. Your meal will probably consist of dishes like lobster poutine and the Doheny Room’s party trick of a dessert before moving to the restaurant’s bar for after dinner drinks. But the party really starts at the clubby upstairs lounge where pretty people and vodka sodas abound.

9 CATCH

The first LA outpost of NY’s celebrity hot spot Catch offers glitter-adorned vodka drinks, a full vegan menu, and exceptional (and pricey) seafood plates. With the lush rooftop setting and some of the city’s best people watching, it’s without question one of the sceniest spots in the city.

10 The Nice Guy

A favorite of the Kardashian clan, h.wood Group’s The Nice Guy is ideal for lovers of both red sauce joints and Hollywood hot spots. That means you can dine on chicken parm and meatballs all while taking in the beautiful Godfather-inspired space and equally beautiful people. You’re going to want to make reservations in advance to secure your seat.

11 Toca Madera

You know it’s a clubstaurant when a space comes outfitted with a photo booth and resident DJ. Come in for expensive plates of Mexican fare, and stay to rub elbows with leather jacketed ladies and gents.

12 The Venue

Don’t get confused, The Venue is not your average karaoke bar. Head into a basement through a speakeasy-like entrance and encounter a neon sign-accented space with a full dining room, bar, and thirteen private karaoke rooms. Come for dinner and stay for cocktails by Devon Epinosa and all the debauchery that ensues. Located in the heart of Koreatown.
