Top 10 Best Bachelor Party Activities In Los Angeles

Headed to Los Angeles for a bachelor party soon? On top of dinners and nightclubs, you’ll need to plan afternoon and early-evening group activities for the bachelor and his group that are fun and memorable, while still giving you the most value for your money spent.

Southern California is known for its almost year-round pleasant weather that draws visitors seeking to escape the colder climates of their hometowns; many of its residents are transplants to the state who once upon a time visited from parts of the U.S. further north or east – or their parents / grandparents / great-grandparents did – and decided they loved it here so much that they didn’t want to leave. The fabulous weather and endless array of recreational and entertainment options has drawn nearly 13 million residents to metro Los Angeles, 4 million of which live within the city boundaries of L.A., which is the state’s economic center and largest city.

The L.A that out-of-town visitors – 48 million a year! – want to see is most likely the “Hollywood / Venice Beach” one: steamy summer temps, laid-back chill vibes, sheer opulence, fast money, fashionably glamorous excess, and glitzy sensory overload.  Of course, the locals and insiders are happy to deliver upon those stereotypes, because that’s the version that tourists pay handsomely to witness and be a part of. And Angelenos surely play that fiddle in harmonious tune, because more tourists visiting SoCal will mean more revenues generated and jobs created for the state’s sun-kissed residents!

Why is planning a bachelor party so hard?

We know you’re in town for a good time, not a long time… so you’ll need some expert guidance to help narrow down your choices to round out your ideal bachelor party agenda. And lo and behold, that’s where we come through for you once again. Our Discotech operations staff are experts in L.A. entertainment, with nearly two decades of experience handling customer requests in this high-traffic market. So without further adieu, here is our Top 10 list of the best and most entertaining bachelor party activities to partake of while in L.A. in order to ensure a memorable stag party experience.

1) The Night King Cometh – Nightclubs

  • Venue (Location): Varies by price and music type (click here for recommendations)
  • Cost Per Person: Free (certain guest lists); $5-100 (discounted guest lists & presale tickets); $200 and up (VIP tables)
  • Time Length of Activity: 4-5 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 10:00PM-11:15PM (avoid long lines and waits)

Seems predictable, but sorry not sorry gents: the activity of nightclubbing HAS to be #1 and #1A on any Los Angeles bachelor party list. Why, you say? Greater L.A.– and Hollywood in particular – is a legendary party epicenter that epitomizes international debauchery; with the lone exception of Las Vegas and maybe NYC, you just can’t really get such high-quality versions of this revelry anywhere else in America. There are hundreds of clubbing options in the city to match your budget, vibe, and music type whether you’re into electronic, hip-hop, Top 40, or Latin / international beats. Also, no matter which club you end up at, you should always keep your eyes open – this is the playground of Hollywood’s entertainment stars, so you never know when a celebrity or two might pop up at the table next to you. One thing to note is that places get packed earlier in the night – 10:30-11:30pm are when most spots start to fill up – and close down at 2:00am. To party like a local, we recommend you schedule your dinner in the 7-9pm range and then head to the club straight afterward without having to stop at your hotel to change – your night will feel smoother and less rushed, and your clubbing time and budget as well as the bachelor’s fun will stretch out further.

2) Life’s a Beach – L.A. Beaches

Santa Monica Beach & Pier - Los Angeles, CA
  • Venue (Location): Varies by location / atmosphere
  • Cost Per Person: Free (parking fees for pay lots)
  • Time To Set Aside: 3-4 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 9:00AM-12:00AM or 3:00PM-6:00PM (avoid the sun’s strongest midday rays so you don’t turn into a lobster)

There’s a good chance your bachelor chose L.A. for his vacation for the same reason most of the world did: the beaches. The best thing about the beaches in Southern California is that 99% of them are open to the public and they’re free to access. Whether your stag party is searching for an isolated destination to snooze and recharge the battery or wants to spend a day at a busy “see and be seen” strip of sand and surf, L.A. caters to all tastes and offers a variety of beaches to choose from. Some beaches in L.A. are dotted with palm trees to provide a shady respite from the heat, while others are perfect for quickly getting that pre-wedding bronze that will make those groomsmen squad pics pop off. Some have serene and glassy waters that call for a good book; others boast rolling, crashing waves that scream out for surfboards and jetskis. The one thing that all L.A. county beaches have in common is their stunning and well-groomed natural beauty, and many area beaches likewise offer plenty of water activities and proximity to restaurants, bars, and entertainment venues to appease visiting tourists. Here is a list of our Top 10 beaches around Los Angeles:

  1. Santa Monica Beach – Trendy, close to restaurants & nightlife, older / international tourist crowds
  2. Venice Beach – Boardwalk with attractions, close to restaurants & bars, younger local / “party” tourist crowds
  3. Malibu Beach – Surfing (intermediate), birdwatching, upscale restaurants
  4. Manhattan Beach – Beach volleyball, kid-friendly, local families beach
  5. Zuma Beach – Surfing (beginner), kid-friendly, dolphin & sea lion watching
  6. Redondo Beach – Surfing (advanced), kayaking / paddleboarding, bike-riding
  7. El Matador Beach – Scenery (featured in many movies), sea caves, whale watching
  8. El Pescador Beach – Tide pools, fishing, quiet atmosphere
  9. Will Rogers State Beach – Kitesurfing, diving, sunbathing
  10. Leo Carrillo State Beach – Swimming, windsurfing, bicycling, scenery (featured in many movies)

3) Get Wet! – Pool Parties / Dayclubs

Pool party at W Hollywood rooftop - Los Angeles, CA
  • Venue (Location): Varies by price and music type (click here for recommendations)
  • Cost Per Person: Free (certain guest lists); $5-100 (discounted guest lists & presale tickets); $200 and up (VIP loungers, daybeds, & cabanas)
  • Time Length of Activity: 4-5 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 1:00PM-3:00PM (avoid long lines and waits)

With the weather in L.A. so pristine for the better part of ten months out of the year, day drinking is a must for any bachelor party agenda…. and there are plenty daytime parties around the city that epitomize the sumptuous hedonism of the Hollywood lifestyle. At least one of these day parties on your bachelor weekend agenda is a must; even for guys who don’t like nightclubs, the eye candy, sunshine, cool plunges to beat the heat (and did we mention eye candy?) make it worth it.

For any bachelor party larger than four 4-5 gents, it’s a no-brainer to book a cabana or daybed with bottle service in order to maximize the fun; for a smaller stag-do or one that wants variety, we suggest purchasing presale tickets. Find one of the hottest events going on that weekend using our Discotech app, and go see one of your favorite DJs or performing artists. For a Saturday pool party, Wet at W Hollywood and Skybar are the best party scenes especially if money ain’t a thang; if you’re not in the mood for water sports, wait for Sunday and hit up Penthouse or Liaison, two of the best late-afternoon boozy brunch parties on the planet. Between the killer music lineups, badass surroundings, and (did we mention) eye candy, these four venues are head-and-shoulders above the rest if your bachelor is into nothing but the best.

4) Music To Your Ears – Live Music Venues

Hollywood Bowl outdoors - Los Angeles, CA
  • Venue (Location): Varies by price and music genre (click here for recommendations)
  • Cost Per Person: $10 and up (depending on show demand and seat location)
  • Time To Set Aside: 3-6 hours (1-2 hour commute plus 2-4 hour show)
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 2+ hours before show opening time (account for traffic and parking)

You, the bachelor, and the groomsmen may have long ago given up on your garage band’s dream of going Hollywood, but there are plenty of opportunities to relive that dream when visiting Tinseltown. There is no shortage of live music to be found in Los Angeles, one of the music entertainment capitals on the world; all across the City of Angels stretch various lounges, bars, restaurants, and even street performers offering up enticing song and instrument to entertain the city’s locals and visitors.

If your musical tastes are less mainstream and more niche – think rock, blues, country, reggae, classical, or pop of yesteryear – and your party vibe more chill, then on any given night it’s not hard to find at least one venue in L.A. with comfy chairs, in-seat drinks, great acoustics and sight lines, and a lineup of bands playing your jams. And if you want to go bachelor party big, music’s biggest superstars perform all over the city at world-famous state-of-the-art venues like the Hollywood Bowl, Staples Center, the Rose Bowl, and The Greek Theatre… and all have suites and VIP experiences that can be booked. And of course, even the nightclubs of Los Angeles also offer showstopping live performance spectacles featuring the best and brightest contemporary hip-hop and electronic music stars on certain nights.

5) Laugh ‘Til Your Sides Hurt – Comedy Shows

 You and the lads are experts at busting each other’s balls and yukking it up in person and on group chats, so why not take it to the big leagues on this bachelor trip? Stand-up comedy sets are bigger and bolder in Hollywood than anywhere else in the world, and two legendary venues a mile apart on Sunset Boulevard are the laugh-quake epicenters. Originally designed as “artist’s colonies” for cultivating the unique art form of stand-up comedy via family-like environments for stand-ups to sharpen their tools and then “pay it forward” by mentoring newer comics, The Comedy Store and The Laugh Factory nowadays host all of the great comedians on Earth and have been doing so nonstop for over thirty years.

Up-and-coming talent (think Pete Davidson) and yesterday’s legends (think Dane Cook) share nightly sets with today’s superstars (think Kevin Hart and Dave Chappelle) who taking breaks from their TV/film schedules to pop in unannounced and hone new comedic material. Drinks and food are served tableside while you enjoy the rapid-fire jokes, and a two-hour show breezes lightly and quickly through 6-8 comics each doing 10-15 minute sets with a short 1-2 minute break in between each set. It’s an ideal pregame activity to get you in the lighthearted mood for the heavy Hollywood partying later that night.

6) Hot Days, Cold Brews – Brewery Tour

Angel City Brewery - Los Angeles, CA

  • Cost Per Person: $69 (includes transportation and samples at each brewery stop)
  • Time To Set Aside: 5 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 12:00PM (5-hour tours start at this time)

The nationwide craft beer revolution – spurred by a broader movement toward community-based, locally inspired businesses – has in the last few years taken the City of Angels by storm. Los Angeles long staked its reputation on its craft food and cocktail scene, pristine beaches, and nightclubbing / VIP tables / bottle service. Lately though, it’s been building out a new local reputation for bars, taps, and quality craft beer, so if the bachelor is more into suds than spritzers we strongly recommend a hop on the L.A. Beer Hop. With seven unique tours showcasing LA’s craft beer scene, you’ll have a night of sampling the city’s very best plus a safe ride from one brewery to the next. Weekly tours meet in different L.A. neighborhoods Saturdays, but the guides are also available for private bookings any day of the week. The ticket price includes behind-the-scenes tours of each brewery and insights into the brewing processes that make each brand unique. L.A. brewers often break tradition using local tropical fruits and exotic Latin-influenced ingredients to create novel flavors for the most adventurous imbibers. Buckle Up and Bottoms Up!

  • Time To Set Aside: 1.5 hours (35-45 minutes in air)
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 6:00PM (twilight / evening views of city are spectacular and skies are more colorful)

OK, so you and the bachelor know every word from every Arnold Schwarzenegger action movie and apply quotes from them to everything from coffee runs to yard work. Now is your chance to overuse your favorite quote, grab your aviator shades, and take to the star-studded Hollywood night skies for an epic aerial action-movie adventure. Your birds-eye tour of the City of Angels departs from Burbank Airport then passes over the The Getty Center, the Playboy Mansion, Downtown L.A., the Hollywood Sign, Universal Studios, and Dodger Stadium. Your pilot is an experienced professional tour guide who will point out the sights rapid-fire while educating you on facts about the geology, topography, history, and culture of one of the largest, most well-known, and most colorful landmark treasures in all of America.

  • Cost Per Person: $55 and up
  • Time To Set Aside: 3-4 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 10:00AM (tours start at this time)

Ahh, street food: the perfect cure for a bachelor party hangover. If last night’s bacon-wrapped hot dog outside of the club didn’t quite do the trick, then you’ll need to set aside a few midday hours for an epic “Only in LA” experience like this. With its numerous cultural landmarks and small businesses, Downtown LA is well-known for its plethora of historic and artistic contributions to broader American culture. DTLA food tours aim to celebrate both the social aspect of food in bringing people together; a 3-hour walking tour of this sprawling Los Angeles neighborhood is the most ideal excursion, and expert tour guides will delve deep into its history, traditions, and local customs… which of course includes introducing you to some of the city’s most delicious street food along the winding journey. In homage to L.A.’s deep Hispanic roots, the Downtown Los Angeles Taco Tour does a deep dive on a heavenly dish made famous by the City of Angels: the authentic street taco. Along the walk you’ll visit three taquerias and one or two cantinas and learn about different styles of tacos and culinary history and tips, while of course sampling both traditional and innovative versions of the taco washed down by cold traditional beverages.

  • Cost Per Person: $40 and up
  • Time Length of Activity: 3-4 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 2 hours before scheduled game time (so you can pregame tailgate plus be in your seat for the National Anthem)

Sports is the bonding language for males the world over, and Los Angeles is a strong candidate for the unofficial title of Sports Capital of the World. The Los Angeles Sports & Entertainment Commission (LASEC) rebuilt and modernized L.A.’s historic reputation as a sports mecca, and as a result they’ve recently scored the MLB All-Star Game in 2020 (to be rescheduled), Super Bowl LVI in 2022, and the College Football Playoff National Championship Game in 2023; L.A. is also a host city finalist for the 2026 FIFA World Cup.  Southern California is home to no less than eleven (11) major American professional sports franchises:

The City of Angels also hosts major tournaments year-round in niche sports such as auto racing, e-sports, tennis, and surfing. Add to these world-class venues and events perfect outdoor weather and the unrivaled access to celebrities, talent, and media that comes with being in the epicenter of the entertainment industry, and you have a perfect storm of reasons for the lads to anchor the bachelor weekend around an exciting professional sports match or two.

10) Get Lost, Take A Hike – Outdoor Hiking

  • Venue (Location): Runyon Canyon (Hollywood Hills)
  • Cost Per Person: Free
  • Time To Set Aside: 3-4 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 10:00AM-1:00PM (more crowded / active scene, plus avoid the brutal afternoon heat)

Got some gym rats and health nuts in the bachelor party demanding to break a healthy sweat at some point in the weekend? Located just 20 minutes from most L.A. neighborhoods, Runyon Canyon in the Hollywood Hills is worth the short commute and offers a variety of challenging hiking trails. We know you’re all about the beautiful views though, and with its heavenly perch high above the City of Angels, Runyon Canyon is the perfect 3-4 hour jaunt for spectacular skyline lovers (you can see all the way to Downtown LA) and Instagram influencers alike. And if you’re lucky, you might even catch some wild rabbits and other critters while you’re out on those trails getting your exercise on and sweating out the alcohol from the night before… or preemptively burning calories for the night to come. Oh, did you mean a different kind of beautiful views? Runyon Canyon has those too: it’s a not-so-secret outdoor workout hotspot for the impossibly fit UCLA & USC co-eds as well as the local women who tend bars, serve cocktails, are aspiring actresses and models, or otherwise drive the L.A. nightlife and entertainment economy forward on the basis of their stunning good looks.

Bonus Activity: Ladies of the Night

  • Venue (Location): Varies
  • Cost Per Person: $20 cover charge (lap dance / champagne room prices vary)
  • Time To Set Aside: Umm… zero hours. None of you were ever here, right?
  • Best Time of Day to Go: Anytime

For 99% of bachelor parties, a late-night strip club trip is a standard item on the agenda. Los Angeles is one of the better cities in America for gentlemen’s clubs, not only for quality of young “talent” but for variety as well. When it comes to the best overall scenes, Ace of Diamonds and Crazy Girls and are the top choices if you are still in Hollywood late night and have struck out at the nightclubs; if you’re closer to the west side, we recommend you direct the troops to Silver Reign. Or, try Bare Elegance near LAX if you have a few hours to kill before your flight out of town – it’s a classier, roomier, more upscale experience that’s the tried-and-true way to put the cherry on top of your epic L.A. bachelor party (and might be the last time the bachelor can get away with going to an establishment of this nature).


In conclusion: Los Angeles is definitely a bachelor party destination where a lot of good times can be had by a group of lads along all points of the budget spectrum. It is a magical beachfront oasis where both indoor and outdoor activities can spice up any bachelor party agenda… if you know the lay of the land.

  • Cost Per Person: Free to stroll (Shopping… that’s another story)
  • Time To Set Aside: 2-3 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 2:00PM-6:00PM (good post-lunch or pre-dinner activity, plus downtime to recover for late-night entertainment plans)

Los Angeles has plenty of activities for you to do “’til you drop” and of course shopping is one of them. The City of Angels has long been a fashion mecca due to the trendsetting entertainment industries that call it home, and thus a destination for fashion seekers. Superior fashion retail zones and establishments are located all over the city, from Santee Alley Fashion District in Downtown L.A. to Third Street Promenade just blocks from the Pacific Ocean. The unquestionable crown jewel of shopping in L.A. though is Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, one of the world’s most famous and most exclusive luxury destinations and an unparalleled hub at the intersection of luxury, fashion, entertainment, and pop culture.

With more than 100 world-renowned stores and hotels comprising the three magnificent blocks within Rodeo Drive’s Golden Triangle, it’s easy to lose yourself in the street’s splendor and charm, and even easier to see why it’s one of the tastemaking fashion hubs in all of America. Here, shoppers can expect to find big-brand fashion retail giants – Versace, Jimmy Choo, Lanvin and Tiffany & Co.  – alongside ultra-chic local boutiques, each carrying their latest warm-weather fashions to appeal to the eyes and wallets of wealthy Angelenos and well-heeled tourists. Pro tip: after re-enacting the Julia Roberts scene from Pretty Woman and maxing out your (or the groom’s) credit card on Rodeo, hop in an Uber and skip on over to the stretch of quirkier independent niche fashion houses on Melrose Drive, where you might just find that perfect piece of jewelry or accessory to complement your matching bridesmaids dresses.

Taught by professional dancers and gymnasts – and a few moonlighting exotic dancers – and featured on US Weekly and in several reality TV shows including Love & Hip Hop. Evolve is conveniently located in the middle of metro L.A. and covers all the basic aspects, movements, and techniques for executing lap dances and stripper pole sequences. If you’re feeling more daring, several advanced classes combine the art of pole fitness with Cirque du Soleil-style aerial workouts using suspended hoops. The 60-minute and 90-minute classes are chock-full of expert tips on how to soar, tease, and titillate like Hollywood’s most seasoned ladies of the night, and the unforgettable experience culminates with a high-energy choreographed routine for the bride-to-be to show off to her fiancee… and for you to show off to friends and strangers at future house parties.

6) Where the Wild Things Are – Wine Safari

Malibu Wine Safaris - Los Angeles, CA
  • Venue: Malibu Wine Safaris (Malibu)
  • Cost Per Person: $65 and up
  • Time To Set Aside: 4 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 10:30AM (start time for early tour; avoid the hotter afternoon temperatures)

What could possibly be more fun than the Catalina Wine Mixer, you ask? Umm, how about a Malibu Wine Safari? If the bride tribe has a few adventurous animal lovers, Malibu Wine Safaris combines the kiddie experience of a zoo with the adult experience of wine-tasting within a rollicking, unforgettable nature tour. In a custom-built open-air safari vehicle, you’ll make a fun jaunt through the lush 1,000-acre Saddlerock Ranch and vineyard in Malibu, just 30 minutes from Hollywood / Downtown LA.

You’ll make planned stops along the way to take in the scenery, sample vino varietals, and get up-close-and-personal with new friends: zebras, water buffalo, alpacas, bison, and the the star of the show, Stanley the Giraffe (win their affection – and the perfect photo – by feeding them carrots, pellets, and bananas). The wines – Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, and seasonal blends – are sourced from local vineyards in the Santa Monica Mountains; they’re passable, and what they lack for in high quality relative to other California wines they make up for in abundance. And after the magical tour, you can stop by the on-site tasting room and picnic area for a late-afternoon nosh or even a spirit much stiffer than wine from the fully stocked bar should you feel the calling to unleash the wild party animal within.

7) Be a Reality TV Star – Upscale Brunches

  • Venue (Location): Varies by price, location, and cuisine
  • Cost Per Person: $20 and up
  • Time Length of Activity: 3-4 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 11:30AM-2:30PM (you know…. the brunching hour)

If you and your gals bond weekly over good ‘ol trashy reality TV, then you know that many of the most emotionally charged scenes seem to happen when your favorite characters are dressed to the nines while quaffing champagne and cocktails over brunch in one of the city’s hottest restaurants. If you are looking for the perfect spot to brunch in L.A., we recommend you head on over to West Hollywood. West Hollywood is the reality TV epicenter of the world – scenes from many shows are filmed around here – and has the best high-end brunch culture, from the trendy restaurants to the exotic booze blends to the trendy wall art and movie-set ambiances.

You’ve got plenty of great fabulous brunch choices in WeHo, but if you call yourself a true reality TV die-hard then you’ll need to lock down a coveted reservation at either Pump or SUR, the brainchildren of British TV personality Lisa Vanderpump (“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”), one of reality TV’s biggest superstars. Pump and Sur are two spots that boast sprawling indoor / outdoor patio layouts, with stylish booths and full bars adorned with garden decor, lantern-adorned trellises, romantic lighting, and walls and furniture showcasing Vanderpump family pictures. They are classy yet inviting Hollywood “it” spots that turn into booze-soaked ultra lounges and “see and be seen” scenes as afternoon turns into evening – drinking / dining / mingling destinations whether you’re fans of the Real Housewives franchise or not, and the perfect spot for the bachelorette brigade to reenact your favorite dramatic scenes, real or staged, from your favorite reality TV characters.

8) Float & Flex – Yoga + Paddleboard Class

  • Venue (Location): YOGAqua (Marina Del Rey)
  • Cost Per Person: $44
  • Time Length of Activity: 2 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 9:00AM-11:30AM (burn some calories before a hearty brunch)

Perhaps the only thing more “L.A.” than stand-up paddleboarding… is yoga. For the bride-to-be that aims to do it all, a group date in Marina Del Rey can kill two glorious birds with one stone. Sarah Tiefenthaler’s YOGAqua, operating since 2011, offers combo paddleboarding / yoga classes for rowing yogis of all levels. Students are taken through a Vinyasa Yoga flow with instructions customized and detailed for the paddleboard, so even if they have not been practicing yoga for years – or if they have never been on a paddleboard – they will be able to balance and follow along with no problem.

A YOGAqua class is 90 minutes long; the first 30 minutes dedicated to learning how to properly use the board and peacefully paddle around the harbor, and the remaining hour is dedicated to mind-calming yoga movements while atop the paddleboard. Each board has an individual anchor that is dropped down before the Yoga portion of class begins, so that students don’t drift away of fall off while focusing on their form. Serenity and balance atop the calm deep blue waters of the Pacific Ocean? Yes, please.

9) Make a Splash – Dayclubs / Pool Parties

W Hollywood rooftop pool party - Los Angeles, CA
  • Venue (Location): Varies by price and music type (click here for recommendations)
  • Cost Per Person: Free (certain guest lists); $5-100 (discounted guest lists & presale tickets); $200 and up (VIP loungers, daybeds, & cabanas)
  • Time Length of Activity: 4-5 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 2:30PM-3:30PM (avoid long lines and waits)

With the weather in L.A. so pristine for the better part of ten months out of the year, day drinking is a must for any bachelor party agenda…. and there are plenty daytime parties around the city that epitomize the sumptuous hedonism of the Hollywood lifestyle. At least one of these day parties on your bachelorette weekend agenda is a must; even for ladies who don’t like nightclubs, the eye candy, sunshine, cool plunges to beat the heat make it worth it. Find one of the hottest events going on that weekend using our Discotech app, and go see one of your favorite DJs or performing artists. For a Saturday pool party, Wet at W Hollywood and Skybar are the best party scenes especially if money ain’t a thang; if you’re not in the mood for getting wet, wait for Sunday and hit up Penthouse or Liaison, two of the best late-afternoon boozy brunch parties on the planet. Between the killer music lineups, badass surroundings, and (did we mention) eye candy, these four day party venues are head-and-shoulders above the rest if your bachelorette is into nothing but the best.

10) Heavenly Angels – Hollywood Hills Hike

  • Venue (Location): Runyon Canyon (Hollywood Hills)
  • Cost Per Person: Free
  • Time To Set Aside: 3-4 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 10:00AM-1:00PM (more crowded / active scene, plus avoid the brutal afternoon heat)

Located just 20 minutes from most L.A. neighborhoods, Runyon Canyon in the Hollywood Hills is worth the short commute and offers a variety of challenging hiking trails. We know you’re all about the beautiful views though, and with its heavenly perch high above the City of Angels, Runyon Canyon is the perfect 3-4 hour jaunt for spectacular skyline lovers (you can see all the way to Downtown LA) and Instagram influencers alike. And if you’re lucky, you might even catch some wild rabbits and other critters while you’re out on those trails getting your exercise on and sweating out the alcohol from the night before… or preemptively burning calories for the night to come. Oh, did you mean a different kind of beautiful views? Runyon Canyon has those too: it’s a not-so-secret outdoor workout hotspot for those hunky, impossibly chiseled aspiring actors and models who while waiting for callbacks tend bars, wait tables, pour lattes, valet cars, or otherwise drive the L.A. nightlife and entertainment economy forward on the basis of their boyish good looks.

Bonus Activity: Men at Work – Male Revue Show

  • Venue (Location): Hollywood Men (Hollywood)
  • Cost Per Person: $20 and up
  • Time Length of Activity: 2-3 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 7:00PM-10:00PM (show start times for most revues are in evenings)

In the town where one’s wildest dreams can come true overnight, it’s no cause for shame at all if the bachelorette party wants to include a more magical fantasy ride on the naughty side. Male revue shows are the quintessential way to get the pulses racing, and Walk of Fame is home to Hollywood Men, one of the best male revue shows in the world. Yes you’ll get your fill of good-looking Adonises of all races with chiseled physiques and washboard abs, but along with that you’ll also get expertly choreographed high-energy dance routines that ooze charisma, athleticism, swagger, and sex appeal. For many of the shows, you’ll also be offered the opportunity to snap photos with the hunks of your choice as well as treat the bride-to-be to an up-close-and-personal lap dance. And along with such multi-sensory delights, a bit of light internet research beforehand can yield plenty of “bang for your buck” in the form of discounts and bundling packages that include limo rides, fancy dinners, and cocktails as value-added side dishes to your lip-smacking main course.


In conclusion: Los Angeles is definitely a bachelorette party destination where a lot of good times can be had by a group of ladies along all points of the budget spectrum. It is a magical beachfront oasis where both indoor and outdoor activities can spice up any hen party agenda… if you know the lay of the land. Your friends and nightlife guides here at Discotech are an essential part of that equation – we help you browse and book free guest lists and cheap presale tickets or VIP bottle service for the hottest nightclubs and pool parties in L.A. What are you waiting for?

Top 10 Best Live Music Venues in Los Angeles

There is no shortage of live music to be found in Los Angeles. Cavernous, state-of-the-art venues with naming rights granted to well-heeled corporate sponsors host concerts for the biggest music artists in town, while all across the City of Angels stretch various lounges, bars, restaurants, and even street performers offering up enticing song and instrument to entertain the city’s 48 million annual visitors. Yes, the nightclubs of Los Angeles also do offer showstopping live performance spectacles featuring the best and brightest contemporary hip-hop and electronic music stars. However, if your musical tastes are less mainstream and more niche – think rock, blues, country, reggae, classical, or pop of yesteryear – and your party vibe more chill, then you’ll want to ditch the dance floors for comfy chairs, in-seat drinks, and great sight lines while watching your favorite artists perform live.

And now, for some music to your ears, we present Discotech’s Top 10 best live music venues – big and small – in the city of Los Angeles.

1. Hollywood Bowl – Hollywood

Concert at Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles, CA

Tucked away in an aesthetically pleasing – both visually and sonically – crevasse of the magical Hollywood Hills, the iconic 18,000-seat Hollywood Bowl has the nostalgic power to pull on the heartstrings of even the most cynical of Angeleno veterans. The Los Angeles Philharmonic was the inaugural act to open this impossibly beautiful jewel of a venue in 1922 at the height of the musically groundbreaking Roaring ’20s; since then, the Hollywood Bowl has hosted large-format concerts of all music genres every summer season, and every LA local has at least one unforgettable memory of catching a show there. Sadly, despite surviving years of war and economic turmoil, the Bowl’s impressive annual streak of shows will likely come to an end in 2020, due to current city government restrictions surrounding large gatherings due to the coronavirus pandemic. Discotech looks forward to Hollywood Bowl re-opening in 2021, and we’ll be one of the first to get in line for tickets – seriously, it’s walking distance from our Hollywood office – to one of their first announced shows.

2. Palladium – Hollywood

Crowd at Palladium, Los Angeles

Another legendary Los Angeles music venue with one of the coolest venue names in the galaxy, the Palladium was once upon the time the hip spot for your grandparents’ generation of Hollywood hip-cats: Frank Sinatra and the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra headlined the inaugural show here on Halloween night in 1940. Beverly Hills-based live events company Live Nation gave the beautiful but aging cougar a million-dollar facelift and a 20-year lease in 2007, and it has resumed its status as a must-visit experience for Millennials and Gen Z. The Palladium boasts 11,200-square-foot GA-only dance floor, with a mezzanine and a floor level that can hold up to 4,000 people. The structure includes an impressive circular entrance foyer with winding balcony stairs and a domed ceiling crafted in Art Deco style that gives the acoustics here a unique melodic reverberation. Or in words of today’s young music heads, the sounds “slap” and “just HIT DIFFERENT” at this memorable spot.

3. The Wiltern – Koreatown

interior of The Wiltern, Los Angeles

Located on the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Western Avenue (Wil… tern, get it?) in the heart up-and-coming K-town, the Wiltern is an aging art deco concert hall that is smallish by today’s standards (capacity is 1,850). For its standing room-only shows, space comes at a premium and the sight lines to its stage are not very good compared to other LA music venues. But what the Wiltern lacks in ambiance it more than makes up for on the programming side of the coin: the diversity and quality of the live music artists its management books are the envy of venue directors worldwide. On one day you’ll see genre-specific notables such as Snow Patrol, the Growlers, or Maren Morris; on another day, a global superstar like Madonna may announce a multi-date residency, causing a run on tickets at this classic but severely space-limited bandbox.

4. Greek Theatre – Los Feliz / Griffith Park

greek theatre audience

If not for the beaches, then summer in L.A. is for outdoor concerts… and this 6,000-seat open-air theatre on the eastern side of the Hollywood Hills stages delivers everything you would hope for in your midsummer night’s dream. With it’s woodsy setting rivaling the Hollywood Bowl’s more modern urban cityscape digs, the Greek plays host to festival-like summer music shows by local and national acts. Unfortunately, with this dreamy scene comes the inevitable nightmare of parking: “stacked” parking means even if you avoid headaches and arrive early, getting out of the parking lot often takes longer than the show… and VIP “Quick Parking” is a whopping $75.

5. The Novo – Downtown LA

Concert at The Novo, Los Angeles, CA

The Novo – formerly Club Nokia – is 2,400-seat indoor music venue located at the L.A. Live entertainment complex in DTLA. Operated by promotions giant Goldenvoice and sponsored by tech giant Microsoft, The ovo holds a key advantage advantage over other older L.A. venues: it’s outfitted with all the modern trappings and conveniences, by virtue of having been built later (its $80 million construction took 3 years and was completed in 2008). This high-energy venue focuses on emerging music acts and culturally-focused music/dance shows, while also providing an excellent venue rental space for corporate events and private parties.

6. The Forum – Inglewood

Once the proud home of the Showtime-era Los Angeles Lakers and the “it” spot for ’80s Hollywood pop culture and cool, The Forum had long since fallen out of favor once Staples Center was erected in 1998. But after a recent $100 million renovation from New York’s Madison Square Garden (MSG) Company and renewed interest from the NBA’s Los Angeles Clippers in relocating there – plus massive infrastructure investments by the city in its surrounding Inglewood neighborhood – The Forum is well on its way to wining back its L.A. buzz. As a music venue, it’s always been top-notch: the bowl shape of the auditorium keeps sight lines clear and near and sounds crisp. For this reason, big-name concerts have never really stopped making this venue their stop while their national and global tours swing through the City of Angels.

7. El Rey Theatre – Miracle Mile

El Rey Theater, Los Angeles, CA

A gorgeous, well-kept holdover from the bygone Art Deco era, the 800-seat El Rey runs an modern, eclectic programming roster that is anything but old-school. In the late ’80s the venue became a popular L.A. dance club called Wall Street; it was designated as Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument No. 520 in 1991, and since 1994 it has been a live music venue offering concerts and other performances. Parking is easy compared to other vnues, the acoustics are excellent, and there’s not a bad seat or line of sight in the house.

8. The Fonda Theatre – Hollywood

Fonda Theatre, Los Angeles, CA

A fresh air break – or even a smoke break – doesn’t mean that you’ll miss the show at Hollywood’s Fonda Theatre (formerly the Music Box), where not only is the internal sound system wired up to the open-air rooftop “speakeasy,” but the live on-stage performance is projected onto the rooftop’s exterior walls. This setup – along with comfy sofas scattered about and an unobstructed view of the bustling Hollywood streets below – makes the top floor of the historic Spanish Revival-style building some of the most coveted live music real estate in the city. Inside, Hieronymus Bosch-like hellscapes line the walls of the 1920s theater, which provides a fitting backdrop for the off-the-beaten-path music acts – mostly indie rock – that grace its stage.

9. The Belasco – Downtown LA

belasco theater, Los Angeles, CA

Located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, the Belasco is a spectacular multi-room event and entertainment complex. Thanks to a recent $12 million restoration, the Belasco Theater was able to retain most of its original dramatic architecture and detailing, and management has invested in putting on numerous show dates with mid-tier and top-tier music talent across all genres. The venue houses the largest D&B Audiotechnik Sound System in Southern California as well as a state-of-the art lighting system, which makes its live production creative potential for large-scale electronic music gatherings immense. For this reason – and because it is a ticketing-friendly 18-and-over venue – some of the notable EDM genre event production outfits with cult followings (e.g. Bassrush, Desert Hearts, Minimal Effort) host their touring events here when they drop in to the City of Angels.

10. The Satellite – Silver Lake

A concert at The Satellite, Silver Lake, Los Angeles, CA

The indie music and indie art scene has always been a part of L.A.’s DNA, and never more so than in the hipster epicenter neighborhood of Silver Lake. Silver Lake’s tent pole entertainment venue for years was called Spaceland, and after a relatively recent renovation it is now known as Satellite. Despite the new name, this colorful LGBTQ-friendly no-dress-code come-as-you-are venue remains the leading L.A. shrine to all things indie. For such a small venue, The Satellite has a surprisingly high-quality sound system, along with an upstairs lounge sporting a less crowded bar and photo booth for single hipsters to mingle. Monday nights – which feature free monthly residencies for buzzy local bands getting closer to their Hollywood dreams – is a scene straight out of your favorite 90s movie, and totally worth checking out dude.

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.

Best Jeremy Olander Songs of All Time – Top 5 Tracks

Described by fans, media and industry alike as the savior of the true progressive style, Jeremy Olander captivates audiences from a festival stage and within an intimate club environment. Born in Stockholm, he’s leading the host of next generation artists that continues the Scandinavian capital’s dance music lineage, a pedigree represented by countless DJs and producers who’ve gone from local underground prospects to globally recognized main stage superstars – a trajectory followed by Olander.

After bursting onto the scene in 2011, he became the first producer to be signed to a multi-release deal on Prydz’s coveted Pryda Friends imprint. His inaugural outing, the Evade EP, became the label’s biggest seller and since then he’s continued to elevate himself as a producer, achieving the elusive balance of crossover appeal and underground reverence. 

In 2014, he made his long-awaited comeback return to Pryda and once again broke new ground by becoming the first artist other than Eric Prydz to release music on Pryda Recordings, a label home previously reserved for head honcho Prydz himself. The EP, entitled Jackie, gained widespread appeal amongst the EDM generation and old school house music purists alike, and in a time when many claim it’s all about the singles, the EP went straight to number 1 on the overall Beatport Top 100 Releases chart and stayed there for 10 days, ousting Aphex Twin from the top spot in the process.

Adding to last year’s musical release feats, 2014 also played host to Jeremy’s first headline tour in Australia, two club tour stints in North America at legendary venues such as Beta in Denver, Avalon in LA and Habitat in Calgary. The festival circuit also got their taste of his progressive goodness at Mysteryland, EDC Las Vegas, Electric Zoo, HARD Day of the Dead, Creamfields and VH1 Supersonic, where he played a celebrated B2B set together with Bedrock staple Guy J. Jeremy also made time to include a gig at the venue of all venues that’s likely to remain a dream for most; Madison Square Garden in New York City. There, he became one of a select few to have taken the iconic stage when he was invited to play alongside Prydz at his groundbreaking EPIC 3.0 show.

Olander holds a residency at Sound Nightclub in Los Angeles where he performs a couple shows a year.

Top 7 Best Pool Parties in Los Angeles in 2020

Nothing quite captures the summer season more than swimsuits, get togethers , rooftop bars and pool parties in Los Angeles (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 hotspots have enough lively events to keep you entertained all summer long. 

The season events kick 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, enjoy great must and a 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 guest-list directly on Discotech’s free mobile app. Here are some of the best summer pool party options in LA:

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.
