Exchange LA (Downtown LA)

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 former home of Vanguard, Create’s neon hue, sleek lounge areas and glossy finishes make sure it is one of the most modern, elegant designs in Hollywood’s upscale club scene. The 20000 square feet venue can hold over 2000 partygoers and the regular presence of A-list DJs means Create is always spinning the best tunes and vibes. On top of the two indoor dance floors, an Asian-themed outdoor area allows guests to take a breather whenever things get too hot on the floor. Book tables and sign up for guestlist at Create on our webapp!

Avalon (Hollywood)

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.

Sound features a variety of genres – think deep house music / techno / progressive house. Set in an intimate and meticulously decorated space, Tuesday night features a weekly Space Yacht event at 9 with an eclectic mix of sounds incorporating more bass, and Friday and Saturday nights bring more deep and tech house to Sound every week at 10. Discotech frequently has guest list before 11PM. Sound stays open until 3 or 4 on the weekends and until 2 on Tuesdays – you can sign up for the free guestlists and book tables directly on our webapp or mobile app.

Le Jardin (Hollywood)

Looking to take a break from the crowded dance floors and dark rooms in your usual Hollywood nightclubs? Head down to Le Jardin on Cahuenga for a fresh clubbing experience. Featuring a large patio with an outdoor garden and olive trees, Le Jardin’s designer Gulla Jonsdottir aims to immerse the crowd in a relaxing yet intimate environment. Keep in mind Le Jardin is not always going to be EDM – it depends entirely on the night and talent. Check the Discotech webapp for a list of upcoming events and DJsBottle service is the best way to secure a spot in this venue, especially for its exclusive Thursday nights.

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.

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

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

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.
