2. Exchange LA – Downtown LA

Dance floor / stage @ Exchange LA Nightclub

Exchange LA曾是洛杉矶证券交易所的所在地,并于2010年重新开业,并已成为全球顶级EDM俱乐部之一。 同样也有充分的理由:Exchange LA拥有一个可容纳1500人的多层场所,分布在四层楼的六个酒吧,并且据说是全市一家夜总会中洗手间最多的地方,Exchange LA还举办了一些超级巨星DJ,例如 Armin van Buuren,Dash Berlin和Don Diablo。 GA线会在一个好的夜晚在建筑物的两边延伸很长,因此我们通常建议您进入宾客名单并提早到达,或者提前获得门票。我们经常在这里提供Exchange促销代码! 在此处预订桌子并在Exchange上免费注册来宾清单。

3. Sound Nightclub – Hollywood

Sound Nightclub dance floor - Los Angeles / Hollywood

Sound Nightclub展示了各种EDM风格,从深层室内音乐到电子音乐再到工业到先进的室内音乐。 Sound设在一个私密,光线昏暗且装饰精美的空间中,并邀请室内音乐促销公司定期举行聚会。 例如,周二晚上的特色是每周一次的太空游艇活动,声音融合了不拘一格的低音,而周五和周六晚上则为Sound带来了更深沉的技术。 Discotech通常在11:00 PM之前有声音事件的来宾列表。 声音会一直开放到周末的凌晨3点或凌晨4点,以及直到星期二的凌晨2点-您可以直接在我们的webapp应用程序或mobile app程序上注册免费的嘉宾列表并预订桌子。

4. Avalon – Hollywood

Avalon Nightclub DJ & dance floor

阿瓦隆 Avalon在2003年进行的重大改造使俱乐部从音乐剧院变成了镇上最好的舞蹈场所之一。 常规的18 + / 19 +晚比该地区的大多数其他俱乐部吸引年轻的人群,而且几乎每天晚上,线条在西班牙殖民地的外墙深处形成。 一间长长的酒吧在房间的任一侧都提供饮料,以保持聚会的气氛。 拥有不断增加的粉丝群,DJ名册到本周将变得越来越好,因此无论谁旋转,您都一定会喜欢上一夜。 如果您在镇上,请务必检查出该地点,尤其是在斥资一百万美元对其进行翻新之后。 使用促销代码DISCO可以节省在AvalonHollywood.com上购买的所有门票的10%。 预订桌子并在我们的移动应用程序或网络应用程序上注册Avalon的折扣访客列表

5. Raspoutine – West Hollywood

Raspoutine Nightclub dance floor - Los Angeles, CA

Rasoutine品牌于1965年在巴黎首次成立,此后将地点扩展到罗马,马拉喀什,摩纳哥和洛杉矶。 每个地点都融合了相同的黑暗,神秘,俄罗斯客厅主题:从1970年代的丽塔·海沃斯Rita Hayworths到2020年代的阿丽亚娜·格兰德斯Ariana Grandes,数十年来好莱坞的A-lists吸引了每个场所的豪华魅力。 与欧洲地区不同,在Raspoutine的洛杉矶地区您不会找到任何食物:这是一家纯欧洲人的夜总会,是鸡尾酒,伏特加和法式香槟的饮酒胜地。 占地1600平方英尺的错层房间散发着鲜红色的墙壁和地板,宴会,重音桌子,豪华的墙壁,以及散落在各处的大型俄罗斯套娃。 实际上,Raspoutine完全融入了俄罗斯精神,以为托尔斯泰小说中的双重间谍人物随时可能突然出现,以在酒吧点出伏特加的庆祝照。

6. Nameless – Santa Monica

Nameless Nightclub dance floor. -Santa Monica, CA

到目前为止,关于这个地方的报道还很少。 无名是圣莫尼卡的一个相对较新的技术酒吧/酒廊,正在迅速普及。 为什么? 首先,洛杉矶很少有地方能真正满足人们寻找地下声音的需求:洛杉矶一些最好的深层房屋和地下场景DJ几乎没有大张旗鼓地旋转。 其次,在405以西几乎没有室内音乐场所,没有像Nameless那样优雅或宽敞的场所(尽管公平地说,它仍然比好莱坞的任何室内场所都小得多)。 Nameless设有专用于舞池的地板,可在大多数夜晚提供瓶装服务和廉价的门票。 但是,它最好的好处是,它与圣莫尼卡的许多其他受欢迎的酒吧都位于同一条大街上,这使得它成为开始,继续或结束西边倒屋夜的好地方。 结果,Nameless的人群通常偏向年轻,吸引了大学和最近的研究生。

7. Palladium – Hollywood

dance floor and stage of Palladium nightclub

好莱坞钯金剧院(Hollywood Palladium)是全美最具标志性的音乐厅之一,是一个大型音乐会场馆,既接待EDM艺术家,也邀请了来自其他音乐流派的艺术家。 它以装饰艺术风格的现代流线型建筑建造,包括11200平方英尺(1040平方米)的舞池,带有宽敞的夹层楼,二楼可容纳多达4,000人。 该剧院于2016年被列入《美国国家历史古迹名录》,您的热爱音乐会的父母(甚至祖父母)可能会不时向您介绍在那儿观看演出的故事。 钯金确实在其VIP阳台上为电子音乐表演提供瓶装服务,并且您可以在我们的mobile app中为您最喜欢的歌手的即将到来的表演保留主要视图桌子。

8. Shrine – Downtown LA

shrine los angeles nightclub facing dj crowd

Shrine Auditorium是位于洛杉矶市中心USC旁边的音乐厅-如果您是音乐会舞台上一位崭露头角的大学生,那么您可能会来这里参加一两场表演。 他们拥有从EDM DJ到嘻哈Hip Hop艺术家的各种流派的顶级表演。 这是一个巨大的场地,挤满了很多人,举行了一场派对。 这里没有瓶装服务,但是周围分布着四间酒吧-两间在主楼层,另外两间在楼上阳台部分。 这里的照明产品是最先进的,绝对是一个值得一看的景点。 在Discotech网站上查看The Shrine即将举行的活动和DJ的列表。

9. The Buffalo Club – Santa Monica

十年前或十年或更久以前,风靡一时的时尚,美食舒适的美食热潮,伦敦私人俱乐部的时尚风尚和无所不包的调酒学…………这里有Buffalo Club。 布法罗俱乐部Buffalo Club在它的时代开始之前,如今已成为当今时代的完美之选,但仍然处于竞争激烈的地位,但仍处于不可捉摸的状态。 洛杉矶的许多电影,电视,音乐和科技公司已经搬入了如今已高档化的圣塔莫尼卡区,从而推动了业务的增长,从而允许餐厅/酒廊将其主要餐厅的餐饮形式扩展为深夜家庭音乐的超酒廊。 周末。 尽管如此,Buffalo Club始终保持着其禁酒时代的私密魅力,同时增加了现代设施,如豪华座椅和VIP酒瓶服务,将年轻,嬉皮的一代引入其永恒的洛杉矶魅力。

10. Belasco – Downtown LA

EDM concert at belasco theater, Los Angeles, CA

Belasco位于洛杉矶市中心的心脏地带,是一个壮观的多房间活动和娱乐中心。 由于最近进行了1200万美元的翻新,Belasco剧院得以保留了其最初的戏剧性建筑和细节,管理层也投入了很多时间与各种类型的中,高端音乐人才一起演出。 该场馆拥有南加州最大的D&B Audiotechnik音响系统以及最先进的照明系统,将其在大型电子音乐聚会上的独具创意的生产潜力提升了十倍。 因此,由于它是18岁及以上的票务友好场所,一些著名的EDM流派活动制作公司(如Bassrush,Desert Hearts,Minimal Effort)会在他们落脚时在这里举办巡回演出 到天使之城。

Honorable Mention: Avalon Bardot (Hollywood) – afterhours

阿瓦隆·巴铎Avalon Bardot是位于阿瓦隆好莱坞Avalon Hollywood之上的继我们之后的景点。 晚会在凌晨2点开始。 预订桌子并在我们的mobile app或web app上注册Avalon的折扣访客列表。

Top 10 Best EDM (Electronic Dance) Clubs in Los Angeles

Are you having severe No-chella and No-EDC withdrawals and missing all the “UNTZ UNTZ” due to this pandemic quarantine? No worries, we’re here to help you out, and to prepare you for that glorious day in the near future when your favorite nightclubs reopen. Check out our guide below to the hottest electronic music nightclub venues in the City of Angels, updated for 2020.

What are the best EDM clubs / venues in Los Angeles in 2020?

Looking to go on an epic bass-dropping night out at one of the best EDM nightclubs in Los Angeles? We’ve got you covered. A global destination and meeting point to blend together the best of world’s diverse cultures, as well as one of the music industry capitals of the world, Los Angeles is home to some of the top electronic nightclubs in the nation. Here are the ten best ones that you MUST check out.

1. Academy – Hollywood

Academy Nightclub dance floor

The former home of Create, Academy’s neon hue, sleek lounge areas, and glossy finishes make sure it is one of the most modern and elegant warehouse-style nightclub designs in all of the world. It is the Hollywood home of Insomniac – the same company that brought you the biggest Las Vegas EDM festival: Electric Daisy Carnival / EDC. The 20,000 square feet venue can hold over 2,000 partygoers, and the recurring presence of A-list DJs along with a giant LED ceiling (yes, we said ceiling not wall) means Academy is a can’t-miss venue always spinning out the best tunes and vibes. An Asian-themed outdoor patio area behind the main stage allows guests to take a breather whenever things get too hot on the floor. Book tables and sign up for guestlist at Academy! We often have Academy promo codes for certain shows. 

2. Exchange LA – Downtown LA

Dance floor / stage @ Exchange LA Nightclub

Since its reopening in 2010 after being the former home of the Los Angeles Stock Exchange, Exchange LA has established itself as one of the top EDM clubs in the world. A multi-level venue that has a 1500 capacity, six bars spreading over four floors and reportedly the most restrooms in a nightclub in the city, many top DJs such as Armin van Buuren, Dash Berlin and Don Diablo have graced its stage. The GA line stretches long around both sides of the building on a good night, so we usually recommend getting on the guest list and arriving early, or getting tickets in advance. We often have promo codes for Exchange available here. Book tables and sign up for free guestlist at Exchange here.

3. Sound Nightclub – Hollywood

Sound Nightclub dance floor - Los Angeles / Hollywood

Sound Nightclub showcases a variety of EDM genres, from deep house music to techno to industrial to progressive house. Set in an intimate, dimly lit, and meticulously decorated space, Sound brings in house music promotions companies to throw parties regularly For example, Tuesday nights features weekly Space Yacht event with an eclectic mix of sounds incorporating more bass, while Friday and Saturday nights bring more deep and tech house to Sound. Discotech frequently has guest list for Sound events before 11:00PM. Sound stays open until 3 or 4am on the weekends and until 2am on Tuesdays – you can sign up for the free guestlists and book tables directly on our webapp or mobile app.

4. Avalon – Hollywood

Avalon Nightclub DJ & dance floor

Avalon’s major makeover in 2003 has turned the club from a musical performance theatre to one of the best dance spaces in town. Regular 18+/19+ nights attract a younger crowd than most other clubs in the area, and lines form deep into the Spanish colonial facade almost every night. A long bar offers drinks on either side of the room to keep it going for partygoers. DJ rosters are getting better by the week with its ever growing fanbase. Be sure to check out the place if you’re in town, especially after its million dollar renovation. Use promo code DISCO to save 10% on all tickets purchased at AvalonHollywood.com. Book tables and sign up for discounted guestlist for Avalon on our mobile app or webapp.

5. Raspoutine – West Hollywood

Raspoutine Nightclub dance floor - Los Angeles, CA

First established in Paris in 1965, the Raspoutine brand boasts locations in Rome, Marrakesh, Monaco, and – as of 2018 – Los Angeles. Each location takes on the same dark, mysterious, Russian parlor theme; Hollywood A-listers have been attracted to the high-end charms of each venue for decades, from the Rita Hayworths of the 1970s to the Ariana Grandes of the 2020s. Unlike the European locations, the Los Angeles chapter of Raspoutine serves no food: it is purely a Euro-house nightclub and drinking destination with cocktails, vodka, and French champagne. The 1,600 square foot split-level room oozes blood red walls and floors, banquettes, accented tables, plushy walls, with large matroshka dolls scattered throughout. In fact, Raspoutine is so all-in on the Russian spirit that it feels as though a double-spy character from a Tolstoy novel might burst in at any moment to order celebratory shots of vodka at the bar.

6. Nameless – Santa Monica

Nameless Nightclub dance floor. -Santa Monica, CA

Not much has been written about this place… just yet. Nameless is a relatively new techno bar/lounge in Santa Monica that’s rapidly growing in popularity. Why? First off, few places in LA truly cater to crowds searching for underground sounds: some of the best deep house and underground scene DJs in LA have spun here with little fanfare. Second, there are few house music spots west of the 405, and none as classy or as spacious as Nameless (although TBH it’s still much smaller than any of the Hollywood house spots). Nameless has a dedicated dance floor space for househeads and offers bottle service and cheap entry on most nights. However, it’s best perk is that it is located on the same Main Street drag as many other popular bars in Santa Monica, which makes it a great place to start, continue, or end a barhopping night on the Westside. As a result, the crowd at Nameless usually skews younger, drawing in the college and recent post-graduate scene.

7. Palladium – Hollywood

dance floor and stage of Palladium nightclub

One of the most iconic concert halls in all of America, the Hollywood Palladium is a large concert venue that hosts EDM artists but also features artists from countless other musical genres. It was built in a Streamline Modern, Art Deco style and includes an 11,200 square foot (1040 m²) dance floor with a roomy mezzanine and second-floor level with room for up to 4,000 people. The theater was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2016, and chances are your concert-loving parents (and even grandparents) can regale you with stories of catching a show there once upon a time. The Palladium does offer bottle service on their VIP balcony for electronic music shows, and you can reserve a prime-view table for your favorite artist’s upcoming show in our app here.

8. Shrine – Downtown LA

shrine los angeles nightclub facing dj crowd

 The Shrine Auditorium is a concert hall right next to USC in downtown Los Angeles. They have top talent performing regularly from EDM DJ’s to Hip Hop artists. It’s a huge venue that packs a ton of people and throws one heck of a party. There is no bottle service here, but there are four bars spread out around the place – two on the main floor and two more upstairs on the balcony section. The lighting production is state-of-the-art here and is definitely a sight to see.  Check the Discotech webapp for a list of upcoming events and DJs at The Shrine.

9. The Buffalo Club – Santa Monica

 A decade or more before the speakeasy fad, gourmet comfort food craze, London private club vogue and mixology ubiquitousness…. there was The Buffalo Club. Ahead of its time and now perfect for the times, The Buffalo Club remains above the fray yet magically still under the radar. Numerous film, TV, music, and tech companies in L.A. have moved into their now-gentrified Santa Monica neighborhood, driving business upward and thus allowing the restaurant/lounge to extend its primary restaurant dining format into late-night house music ultra-lounge on weekends. Still, The Buffalo Club has steadfastly maintained its intimate Prohibition-era allure, all while adding modern amenities like plush seating and VIP bottle service to introduce a younger, hipper generation to its timeless L.A. charms.

10. Belasco – Downtown LA

EDM concert at 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.

Honorable Mention: Avalon Bardot (Hollywood) – afterhours

Avalon Bardot is the after ours spot located above Avalon Hollywood. The after party starts at 2 AM. Book tables and sign up for discounted guestlist for Avalon on our mobile app or webapp.

#10 SmartBar – Chicago

clubbing-chicago-smartbar

If you like your house deep, melodic and played ‘til the early morning, put Smart Bar at the top of your to-party-at list. Since 1982, the Chicago institution has been bringing the groove, earning a reputation as one of the best clubs in the world for house music. After all, it’s situated in the heart of the city that started it all.

#9 Avalon – Los Angeles

avalon

Avalon Hollywood has long featured on countless lists ranking the top dance clubs in the world. Since its christening in 2003, the hotspot has been booking an enviable roster of top artists from all corners of dance music – but each weekend is a near-guaranteed sell-out, no matter who’s on the bill. The club’s recent makeover includes a “totally transformed entrance and lobby,” an extended balcony, new VIP booths, multi-level lounges and the addition of 150 LED panels throughout the club. Whether you seek Skrillex’s bass barrage, Axwell’s big room euphoria or the genre-hopping underground sounds of James Zabiela, Avalon’s got you covered.

#8 Stereo – Montreal (honorary US venue)

Markus-Schulz-@-Stereo-06

Up in Montreal, Canada you’ll find Stereo, the legendary after-hours venue and treasure trove for marathon sets. In the past few years, DJs such as Chris Liebing, Seth Troxler, Maceo Plex, Danny Tenaglia, Nicole Moudaber and DJ Koze have graced the Stereo stage; this week, German duo Ame are among the guests.

#7 Audio – San Francisco

12368999_1176780078999594_3847982548137332059_n

The world of Audio Discotech revolves around sound, and it is a danceclub that was created by sound fanatics. The layout of the nightclub, placement of the speakers, design of the 7 layered dance floor, and the Funktion One sound system were carefully crafted to create a revolutionary auditory experience. Combining retro décor with cutting edge music, Audio never sports a dress code and is an intimate venue to hear world class DJ’s without the pretension.

With great sound comes great dancing, and Audio was designed with a centrally located, spring loaded dance floor that keeps the faithful on their feet. The 1600 LED wall is custom programmed to visualize the music, and the thousands of square feet of tufted panels, drapes and acoustic paneling on the ceiling, absorb sound reverberation to create crystal clear mids and high, and punchy base. The result is a night club where the center of the dance floor sounds like a recording studio… just much louder. The innovative custom lighting incorporates thousands of LEDs, every single one of which can change into any color. 3D video projection, dancers, and disco balls round out the experience. Audio is a mecca for amazing DJ talent, focusing on underground house, techno and nu-disco.

#6 Exchange – Los Angeles

exchangela

Housed inside the former Los Angeles Stock Exchange building, Exchange LA serves as a clear indication of Downtown LA’s nightlife resurgence. With a multi level venue that fits over 1500, Exchange is Downtown LA’s go-to spot for electronic dance music.

The décor is a mix of restored Art Deco styles and distinctly modern touches, from the massive bronze doors out front to the intricately painted forty-foot ceilings and the eye-popping LED screen composed of more than one million bulbs. There’s a sofa-lined hallway and adjoining lounge at street level, but most of the trendy guests head straight up to the Trading Floor – so named because that’s what it used to be – where they let loose to trance, house, or whatever other dance-friendly beats the DJ’s spinning that night. Frequenters include Richie Hawtin, Pete Tong, Chus & Ceballos, Carl Cox and more.

#5 Treehouse – Miami

treehouse-miami

Treehouse is regularly visited by some of the leading names in underground house and techno. The club brings a downtown vibe to South Beach, with a stripped-back, wood-pannelled aesthetic that resembles, yes, a real treehouse. While this is one of the busiest spots during Miami Music Week, it’s buzzing all year ‘round, thanks to visitors like the Droog crew, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, DJ W!LD and Ben UFO. Treehouse was also voted the ‘Best Small Music Venue’ by Miami New Times a few years back, so you know the locals are behind it.

#4 Output – New York

maxresdefault

As they claim: “Output is open to anyone, but is not for everyone. Output welcomes individuals who value the communal experience of music over cameras and bottle service.”

With room for about 450 people in its darkened main room, Output is built for dancing. They bring in the right DJs for the job, too, via a staunch booking policy that favours the deep, dark and hypnotic. With underground heroes like Erol Alkan, Luca Bacchetti, Ame, Skepta and Tim Sweeney booked in the coming weeks, Output knows how to get the best out of its soundsystem. Throughout the summer months, you can also party on the club’s rooftop, as the sun sets behind the Manhattan skyline. Just be sure to keep the camera phone in your pocket.

#3 Light – Las Vegas

light

Opening in 2013 with the involvement of Cirque du Soleil and ‘creators of multimedia environments’ Moment Factory, its look and feel is unlike any of its competitors on The Strip. As well as the promise of circus theatrics and high-tech visual walls behind the DJ booth, LIGHT has boasted a varied roll-call of residents, including Krewella, Sebastian Ingrosso, Baauer and A-Trak, and perhaps the jewel in the crown, Carl Cox. In the words of Cox himself, “Oh yes, oh yes…”

#2 Echostage – Washington D.C.

echostage-by-doug-van-sant

Over a sprawling 30,000-plus square feet, Echostage has the world class sound and visual capabilities of a superclub with the down and dirty vibe of a warehouse. Or as Tommy put it, “You get the atmosphere of a ‘90s rave but the sound is fucking killer.” Want to hear that sound in action? Last year, Swedish mastermind Eric Prydz shared his NYE set from Echostage, belting out three hours of dancefloor-moving tunes. Listen to it here, then make a beeline to DC to experience Echostage in action for yourself.

#1 Sound – Los Angeles

soundnightclub

Sound nightclub is THE bastion of deep house / underground electronic music in LA. It’s a small, intimate venue with a sick Funkton One sound system that will rock your socks. As suggested in the name, the venue boasts an impeccable sound system and a killer A/V system so the visual elements are as stimulating as the audio portion. This is a great new place to go in Hollywood that actually books talents who play good deep house and more minimal/artful electro rather than your typical top 40 hits and popular house music bangers.

On occasion Sound will host some well known DJs (Kaskade, Afrojack, Markus Schulz, etc) but more often than not you’ll get the likes of Guy Gerber, Seth Troxler, EDX, Digweed, Carl Cox, Solomun etc.

Top 10 Most Expensive Tables in LA for NYE 2014

There’s nothing more LA than getting regular bottle service at one of the city’s hottest nightclubs. But when do the real ballers come out to play? On New Year’s Eve, dropping serious cash when table minimums are at an all time high – ie $500k for Calvin Harris at Hakkasan. Using the Discotech Nightlife App, we’ve put together a list of the Top 10 Most Baller Tables in LA for NYE.

  1. 1Oak’s “Baller Package:” $7500 gets you and 15 of your friends the best table at one of the hottest club in LA. Bringing the New York nightlife experience to LA, you get to #SetItOff with 2 magnum bottles of Dom Perignon and 3 magnum bottles of Belvedere Vodka. $500 per “friend”
  2. Project LA’s “Baller Package:” At $7500 Project LA is holding its own against 1Oak and offers the same 2 magnum bottles of Dom Perignon and 3 magnum bottles of Belvedere Vodka for your party of 15. Project is an offshoot of one of London’s most exclusive nightlife venues, Project London. $500 per “friend”
  3. Create’s “Stage Table:” $7500 gets you a whopping 15 bottles of alcohol! Make sure you have your limo driver on call after this one. You and 15 of your friends can party the night away to the sounds of the French Grammy nominated DJ Snake, who exports a brand of party music so ferociously groovy that it instantly sets any party on fire. With $500 per friend you get a better bang for your buck in numbers of bottles, although it’s a little less baller than 1Oak and Project.
  4. Lure’s “Baller DJ Table:” $7500 gets you a table for your party of 20 and some serious exclusivity. Your table will party alongside the DJ at LA’s legendary venue known for its infamous “Luresday” parties every Thursday night. You get 2 magnum bottles of Dom Perignon and 3 magnum bottles of Belvedere Vodka. Averages out to $375 per guest.
  5. Henry’s LA’s “Baller Package:” Spend $6,000 at H.wood Group’s newly remodeled Henry’s and your party of 15 gets a bargain with 2 magnum Ace of Spades and 4 Belvederes. Henry’s is known to be a local hangout for Hollywood’s elite.
  6. The Emerson Theatre’s “Baller Package:” $6000 at The Emerson Theatre, an SBE venue, gets your 15-person party 2 magnum Ace of Spades and 4 magnum Belvederes. Emerson “conjures the raw decadence of a speakeasy, seductively incused with contemporary burlesque” – bougie ballin’.
  7. The Argyle’s “Gatsby Table:” Only $5000 to celebrate this New Year’s Eve in style at The Argyle, LA’s newest kid on the block. Your party of 12 gets to celebrate Gatsby style with an excessive Open Bar all night. Argyle is known for it’s tight door explaining why it has one of the hottest crowds in LA… just see their hostesses aka Argyle Aces.
  8. Sound’s “DJ Table:” Love house music and have alcoholic friends? For $5000 you and your friends can dance the night away to the sounds of Danny Tenaglia and score 10 bottles of liquor – enough to get everyone tipsy and still spray the crowd. Sound has consistently been voted one of the top dance clubs in North America for its acclaimed DJ line-up and intimate setting.
  9. Greystone Manor’s “DJ Stage Table:” $5000 and another SBE venue makes the list. Greystone Manor hosts Fifty Shades of Greystone, or otherwise titled as the “most scandalous NYE Party in LA.” You and your party of 15 get 7 bottles of liquor to compliment the sounds of DJ Orator.
  10. Bootsy Bellows’ “Bootsy Baller:” Drop $5000 to ball at Bootsy. From the same owners of Henry’s LA, including actor David Arquette, Bootsy Bellows is a vaudeville-inspired hot spot with various acts and regular stargazing. Host your party of 14 with 2 magnum Ace of Spades and 4 Belvederes.

NOTE: This list is organized by table price divided by the number of comps (aka # of people allowed on the table) and the size/number of bottles of alcohol you get.
