Top Nightclubs to Party With Celebrities in LA 2020

There’s nothing more fun than spotting celebrities during a night on the town. And when you’re in LA, there are plenty of cool dance clubs, bars, and restaurants where you might see your favorite movie star any day or night of the week.

Celebs love hitting the best clubs in LA. After all, they want to party just like everyone else. But you might be wondering – which nightclubs might I be partying next to Diddy or Katy Perry?

In this article we take a look some hot LA clubs where you just might get lucky. Keep reading for a list of trending clubs where the rich and famous love to hang out.

Warwick – Hollywood

The top nights at this Hollywood club are Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. Celebs and other upscale clientele make themselves at home in this vast brick-walled warehouse with chandeliers hanging from wooden rafters and comfy sofas all over the place, but all the seating is basically bottle service. There’s no real dance floor, but people dance between the sofas and around the DJ. There’s also a more intimate lounge upstairs. 

Hyde Sunset – West Hollywood

This club on the Hollywood-West Hollywood border is busiest on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. Hyde Sunset is an SBE venue that prides itself on keeping the riff-raff away from the A-list. It’s a trendy, but inconsistent, restaurant with a “smart casual” dress code until 9 p.m. Then at 10:30 p.m. it turns into a cocktail lounge where young celebs can hang out with their friends without being bothered by the likes of regular people. There are DJs spinning, but no dance floor. If you reserve for late dinner, you might get lucky and get access to the club afterward. If you reserve for an earlier dinner, they’ll give you an hour and a half to give up your table, so no three hours of reminiscing. If you’re just interested in the lounge, plan on bottle service or don’t bother. 

Bootsy Bellows – West Hollywood

You really have to know someone to get into this West Hollywood club, especially on Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday nights.  A tribute to actor David Arquette’s mother, who was a burlesque dancer and pinup model, Bootsy Bellows is an intimate ’60s glam dance club with live music, DJs, and creepy marionettes with the occasional quirky burlesque show. 

Delilah – West Hollywood

This 1920s-style lounge is a glamorous hangout for celebs that will remind you of Hollywood’s Golden Era. Delilah doubles as both a restaurant and nightclub, and is one of the go-to locations for much of New Hollywood.

They have a killer wine and cocktail list, but you’ll want to come for the people watching, so expect to see A-list faces any night of the week. 

Highlight Room – Hollywood

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.

The inner dance floor and raised DJ area, finished with viewing booths, provide the perfect location for any party.

Known as a West Hollywood institution, home of the Gay Walk of Fame, Elizabeth Taylor’s favorite pub, and a community center, The Abbey is one of the premier gay / lesbian nightlife experiences in West Los Angeles

The Birdcage

The Birdcage is one of the hottest VIP bars in Santa Monica. Located on the top floor of The Victorian, this VIP bar is full of fun vibes and tasty cocktails. The laid back atmosphere and upscale decor makes for the ideal place to have a night out with all of your friends.

Dress up or remain casual, either way you are guarenteed to enjoy yourself among the great crowd of socialites. The Birdcage is a place for guests to be free so that they can let their personality shine while having the best night of their life.

Trunks

Trunks is West Hollywood’s popular gay sports bar. They is the friendly, provide a great place to share cocktails, and a short walk from several other gay bars in the area. After 25 years, they remain the place for fun times and good cocktails.

They have added wonderful new outdoor patio…. and have exploded out onto the sidewalk! Now you can relax in they’re new outdoor patio!. Alcohol can be brought outside from the bar to the patio … You’ll LOVE the FUN!

Girl Bar

Organized by Robin Gans and Sandy Sachs in 1990, GIRL BAR has grown and become the largest dance and entertainment club for lesbians in the US. Since moving to LA from New York in the late 80’s, Sachs and Gans identified the need for an upscale nightclub catering to the lesbian community.

The thought was simple: to give the most compelling events, in the most elegant of surroundings with the sexiest women in town. Today, their spirit continues to grow and set a model of excellence in the lesbian and gay community.

Hi Tops Bar

Hi Tops is the newest bar to open up in Weho’s Boystown that stands apart from many of the boring new spots around. It’s the second location of the extremely successful SF bar and though the high school gym locker aesthetic is a bit heavy-handed, there are lots of diverse welcoming areas for you and your friend group to stand around and party next to the very attractive crowd.

But what makes this place so successful? They are known for serving the best cocktails in the neighborhood. So rather of your usual vodka soda, we advise for the mezcal-heavy Magic Hour, or The Claw, which is made with gin and cardamom bitters.

Mother Lode

Many are happy to report that Mother Lode remains to be resilient in these unstable times. The bar is open for business during a restoration of sorts. Yep, the oldest gay bar in West Hollywood is getting a facelift to stay competitive with all the excellent new additions that are budding all over Boystown. The bar’s owner Robert Yacoubian, who prefers to be called Bob, says the bar is here to stay, that the new additions are impresive, and that the bar will remain a staple of West Hollywood’s gay history.

“We’re simply adding a patio in the front,” Bob tells WEHO TIMES, “It’s going to go five feet out. It will be surrounded. There will be bush trees on both sides. There will be a big awning that will come out over it with heaters and lights. The front will be open, so people will be able to step out and walk around. The doorway is coming out. It’s going to be nice. The feedback we are getting is all good.” Hopefully they finished renovation will live up to the hype.

Rage

Rage is one of the hottest spots in WeHo as of now. The club is know for its fun atmosphere, upscale feel, and the good times to be had. Fair warning, the crowd can be very young, which to many might be a good enough reason as any to frequent the place. If 18 and older, this is the place for you.

The best thing about Rage is Musical Mondays, a magical night where people get together and lip-sync to famous theater video clips. Next to that, it’s a very interesting club and home to Weho’s only 18+ night.

The SLS Beverly Hills’ Altitude Pool is a gorgeous oasis that will quickly become a go-to favorite spot during the summer. The plush vibe is so LA and the elevated fare by chef José Andrés such as Pacific ahi tuna ceviche and crab cake sliders is the icing on the cake. Weekends are especially lively on the rooftop pool with a DJ spinning beats on the deck. For the ultimate pool lounging experience, we suggest opting for a cabana.

Tao and Beauty & Essex To Open In LA

Tao has been a nightlife destination in Las Vegas for years, drawing Angelenos with its surprisingly good pan-Asian fare and sceney ambiance. The New York City concept is now apparently slated for the Dream Hotel in Hollywood, no surprise really since sister concept Beauty & Essex was already confirmed back in August 2015.

What Tao’s entrance into the City of Angels means is that Hollywood’s nightlife scene is about to take a turn toward the Empire state of mind. The “vibe dining” restaurant boasts everything from sushi rolls and dim sum to more composed plates. No word on whether Tao will bring its entire nightclub to Hollywood, but with the limited space, it seems unlikely.

At the moment, there’s no projected opening date for Tao, though Beauty & Essex was originally slated to open this year. According to hotel developers Hollywood IRC, the project is currently under construction.

The 10 Best Rooftop Bars in Los Angeles

So what’s the perfect venue to enjoy Los Angeles weather, take in chill vibes and imbibe potent potables all in one locale?

A rooftop bar, of course!

To that end we made it my mission to scout 10 of the coolest rooftop bars in Los Angeles just for you and yes they all come with incredible views, lush scenery, and delicious cocktails.

But whether or not you choose to enjoy them? Well, that’s totally optional.

List starts after the jump (in no particular order).

1. The Andaz Sundeck

andaz-weho-rooftop-pool

Having the highest rooftop swimming pool in Los Angeles is a nice title to have in this town. The Andaz in West Hollywood offers panoramic views of Hollywood and the Sunset Strip on the Sun deck year round. Lay out on a day bed or cozy up and watch the sunset across Los Angeles while enjoying hand crafted cocktails and snacks from the pool menu.

2. High Rooftop Lounge

high-rooftop-lounge-sunset

In Venice beach the Hotel Erwin’s rooftop bar appropriately named High is the prime spot to catch a beach sunset. This place has a laid back atmosphere, awesome munchies and nightly drink specials year round. On chilly nights they even pass out blankets and turn on the heat lamps, how thoughtful right?

3. Perch Los Angeles

perch

Unobstructed views of downtown and very clear view of the neighboring Central Library Perch has been claimed one of the most beautiful rooftop bars in Los Angeles. A talented team of mixologists, tasty food and a beautiful french inspired ambiance has caused this place to form lines every weekend. The vibe is upscale which also means it can get pricey. To avoid the line make a reservation. Looking to try Perch on a budget? They have a happy hour!

4. Upstairs At The Ace Hotel

ace-hotel-los-angeles-pool

Upstairs at the Ace is a buzzing hot spot perfect for kicking back and watching all the cool kids socialize. The moroccan themed roof deck host events nightly with special DJ guests paired with a nicely curated drink menu and YES there is a pool. Do yourself a favor and check out their events calendar it’s filled with fun and free events seven days a week.

5. The Fonda

fondaroof

Catching a show at the Fonda is fun but the added bonus is pretty cool as well… walk up to the second floor and take the mini stairs up into the rooftop. Astroturf, delicate strung up lights, tables, couches and even a open air hall sits right above the building. Guest take their smoke breaks, order drinks and take in the views. Don’t worry about missing the show, they have it projected on a screen with the sound on. Nice touch Fonda I approve!

6. The Standard Rooftop Bar

standard-hotel-rooftop-bar

A view like none other The Standard offers a 360 degree view right in the heart of DTLA. Engulfed by surrounding skyscrapers the hotel opens its rooftop to the public with free admission during the week and a nominal entrance fee (usually $20) during the weekends. Owned by the same hotelier as the Chateau Marmont this mod themed bar has water bed pods, a pool and a projector screening classic flicks. The addition of the Biergarten on the west end of the open air deck is a nice touch for those who want to kick back away from the crowd and dance floor.

7. The Redbury

The SBE group is synonymous with Hollywoods most popular hotspots so it is no surprise when The Redbury opened it became a favorite for people looking for low key nights. The bar is set like a private library with two awesome and free pool tables! Sit outside and lounge on the comfy sofas, the streams of lights and candles create an intimate vibe tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood Boulevard.

8. Suite 700

suite-700-santa-monica

Perched atop the iconic Hotel Shangri-La is Santa Monica’s famous indoor/outdoor rooftop bar & lounge Suite 700. Once a penthouse suite in the landmark hotel, Suite 700 and it’s deco inspired digs captures an elusive sense of Hollywood glamour at the ocean. The rooftop bar provides beautiful views of the ocean and the Santa Monica Promenade making it a perfect place to catch the sunset.

9. The London Rooftop

londonwesthollywood

Perched on the 10th floor of the hotel, the rooftop offers guests a beautiful panoramic view of West Hollywood. Inspired by a traditional English garden this place has an intimate feel to it but things can get crazy over the summer here. Just an FYI the roof top is open to guests for those who want to visit a reservation must be made.

10. SkyBar At The Mondrian

skybar_at_mondrian1

A Hollywood favorite from the time it opened, Sky Bar is situated in the heart of Sunset Boulevard. Pretty young things like to lounge by the pool with a drink and listen to guest DJs spin the latest top tunes. A bit pricey but like any prime hot spot they tend to factor the view in with the bill. Remember to get on the guest list for the weekends for no hassle entry.
