Warwick

Part rustic cocktail lounge part Hollywood club, Warwick (formerly Club L), is a warehouse of exposed brick, fireplaces, and unfinished ceilings. Take the typical Hollywood club, but give it more of a rough, indie feel, and vastly upgrade the alcoholic options to seasonal craft cocktails made with better booze and quality ingredients. As one can see from the layout, it’s a space suited to table/bottle service, but in this case the bar program, and yes, there’s a “bar program,” is executed by top talent Jason Bran and Damian Windsor who have likely liquored you up in the past four years at The Roger Room.

The interior decor effortlessly creates the vibe of an exclusive and classy ballroom reserved for royalty, which makes sense since you’re most likely not going to be able to get in if you don’t opt for bottle service. However, don’t be mistaken. Warwick is an experience hard to forget.

Entry is at the doorman’s discretion. To guarantee admission, we highly recommend bottle service at Warwick.

Protip – Warwick wednesdays is one of the hottest parties in LA. Other upcoming events at Warwick.

Avalon

Avalon since the 1920’s has been one of the biggest hotspots in Hollywood, hosting headliners such as the Beatles and Soundgarden. This historic venue underwent some changes in 2003, as the club had a major makeover that turned the space into a DJ-driven dance club hotspot. Big names continue to shake the cavernous hall, but the emphasis has shifted to electronic compososions. On most weekends you’ll find more underground DJs on the decks spinning tunes early into the morning. Bardot, a lounge above Avalon stays open for the after party on Friday night / Saturday morning until 6-7 AM. Browse Upcoming events at Avalon and get on the discounted guest list!

Regardless of the evening’s agenda, lines form deep in front of the Spanish Colonial façade, with patrons ranging from mini-dress beauties to shaggy rave kids itching to sweat their sneakers off.

A pair of long bars flank the room, as well as small cylindrical tables and white couches for the bottle service crowd. Those looking to escape the revelry can head to the open balcony, home to VIP lounges, a third bar, and bird’s-eye views of the broiling masses below. Funky hipsters and celebrities often venture to Bardot, the club’s sister lounge upstairs.

Nothing beats Avalon when looking to experience for some of the best nu-electro, techno, and house music in LA. Avalon Hollywood recently completed a million dollar renovation of the club which included brand new lighting and sound systems. This place is a must-see.

Academy

Academy LA is one of the most fun and versatile clubs in Hollywood. Hosted by Insomniac, (the creators of the rave-tastic Wonderland and Electronic Daisy Carnival festivals) Academy LA books both emerging DJ talent and high-profile EDM artists. If the club looks familiar to you, its because it was formerly Create (and before that Vanguard) before becoming Academy.

The three-room, 20,000 square foot space features an epic soundsystem and Hollywood’s largest LED wall. I will repeat that again. Hollywood’s LARGEST LED wall. Words are not enough to describe the unbelievable experience one will have attending this venue. For those looking to downshift and desensitize, one can casually hang out on a tree-lined patio illuminated by simple strands of party lights.

Though this major production of a club may not seem like the type to forgo bottle service at private tables, the fantastic layout of the club makes it not only a great place to pop bottles in booths, but a bonafide space to sweat it out to EDM festival trance and house headliners.

Academy has a guest list, tickets for purchase and tables for reservation. See who’s spinning and get on the guestlist – upcoming Events at Academy LA

Playhouse

This celebrity-friendly luxury club with eclectic DJs, comes equipped with a vast dance floor & a exciting party atmosphere. Playhouse according to their website was voted #4 Best Nightclub in the world. We are not here to play favorites or decide who is number one, but Playhouse is undeniably a current top tier club. Playhouse is a modern ode to stylish escapism in heart of Hollywood. The versatile design creates the ultimate entertainment playground for adults.

Located in the long-abandoned building that once housed the Fox Theatre, Playhouse Hollywood is a sprawling, 13,000-square-foot Vegas-style nightclub with a sexy circus theme. Popular with eager young club kids and college students, the impressive high-ceilinged space is dominated by a huge oval bar presided over by scantily-clad bartenders who, when not slinging drinks, leap onto trapezes for some aerial acrobatics or regale the crowd with a provocative burlesque show in the elevated cages. It doesn’t get any better then dancing to bangers while watching a free burlesque show.

High rollers can make their way to the elegant VIP lounge upstairs, which features numerous gold and black banquettes, a second bar and DJ, and a slightly mellower vibe. A whirlwind combination of high design, circus visuals, and great performances, Playhouse offers three-ring bedlam that die-hard club fans won’t want to miss.

General Admission at Playhouse is $20-$40 depending on how busy the night is. Book a table or get on the guest list at Playhouse.

Argyle

Housed in the former space of Tru nightclub, the Argyle is a lounge-club combo new to the scene in Hollywood. The main entrance leads down a flight of stairs into an area with comfy couches and the look of a library. This is what management likes to refer to as the cocktail den. “Downstairs in the craft cocktail lounge, you can take a breather and actually talk to the person you’re with,” says Travis Bass of the Tru Hospitality group. “We wanted a 1920s speakeasy down here, but upscale in London or Paris with no Prohibition.”

The venue’s side entrance on Selma Avenue leads upstairs to the nightclub, where there is a dance floor, fancy lighting and the only two-story VIP booth in all of Los Angeles. The Argyle’s website describes the club as “a champagne jam where high art, high fashion, and high times mingle on the dance floor and the DJ is only as important as the next song.

Argyle does not do walk ups. You will have to know a promoter or reserve a table.

Upcoming Events at Argyle

Sound Nightclub

Sound Nightclub is THE bastion of deep house / underground electronic music in LA. It’s a small, intimate venue with a one-of-a-kind Pioneer sound system that will rock your socks. The venue has a raw and industrial look with lots of California redwood furniture and walls and offers a fairly spacious dance floor located right in front of the DJs perch as well as bottle service for those high rollers.

As suggested in the name, the venue boasts a unique and cutting edge sound system and a killer A/V system, so the visual elements are as stimulating as the unbelievable audio. This is a great place to go in Hollywood that actually books talents who play good deep house and more minimal/artful house rather than your typical top 40 hits and popular house music bangers.

Space Yacht on Tuesdays mostly features bass heavy lineups and has garnered one of the fastest growing followings in the bass music scene. Framework Fridays are about underground deep house and techno music and the people who live for it.

Sound Presents mainly features house music. 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, etc. See who’s spinning at Sound Nightclub! This is one of our favorite clubs in LA!

Most Exclusive Upscale Nightclubs in Los Angeles

These exclusive Los Angeles nightclubs are not for the faint of heart. Packed full nearly every night of the week with local scenesters, beautiful trust fund babies and Los Angeles’ elites, there’s even a good chance that you run into a celebrity grinding on the dance floor, or catch an artist dropping in for a quick performance. All in a night’s work for places where the ultra expensive table minimum start in the thousands. Have your status and cash at the ready to get past the doorman at these night-time playgrounds of the rich and the famous – you’ll be rubbing shoulders with the most well heeled selection of LA high society, and they like to party hard. Most of these upscale venues do not do general admission – admission for ladies is at the door’s discretion, admission for guys requires bottle service. These are the most expensive nightclubs in LA:

Warwick

Part rustic cocktail lounge part Hollywood club, Warwick (formerly Club L), a warehouse of exposed brick, fireplaces, and unfinished ceilings, opens October 5. The idea here is a simple one, but not always easy to execute. Take the typical Hollywood club, but give it more of a rough, indie feel, and vastly upgrade the alcoholic options to seasonal craft cocktails made with better booze and quality ingredients. As one can see from the layout, it’s a space suited to table/bottle service, but in this case the bar program, and yes, there’s a “bar program,” is executed by top talent Jason Bran and Damian Windsor who have likely liquored you up in the past four years at The Roger Room.

While one can always order a drink from the venue’s multiple bars, here’s how tableside cocktail service will work. Those who reserve a table score a personal cocktail attendant to make drinks throughout the night. A table might come with a choice spirit, fresh squeezed juice, housemade syrup or bitters, seasonal garnishes, housemade “foams,” and depending on the drink, fancy ice like this.

Hollywood // 10 PM – 2 AM // Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat

Avenue

It’s not every day that a hot new club opens in Hollywood, but the Tao Group brings one of their most reliable nightlife concepts, Avenue, to the heart of Tinseltown starting tomorrow evening. A celebrity-riddled place in New York City, the Hollywood outlet is sure to bring in the same kind of A-list clientele as the Manhattan original, with a David Rockwell-designed space that spans a mere 4,000 square feet just outside the new Dream Hotel project.

Not massive, but just enough room to unleash some unabashed revelry. The place looks like a “grand estate frozen in time,” with plenty of custom design points and a lounge-style seating array. Expect world-class DJs spinning beats while the drink offerings are classic club-style booze: bottles and easy mixers. And when you get hungry, just pop over to Alvin Cailan’s pizza joint, Luchini, for slices and more. Tao, Beauty & Essex, and rooftop pool bar The Highlight Room will join Avenue for a NYC-style free for all in Hollywood.

Hollywood // 10 PM – 2AM // Tues, Fri, Sat

Nightingale Plaza

Nightingale Plaza is sbe’s latest nightclub concept located in the former Greystone Manor space, which is being reimagined as an avant-garde, nightclub named after Hollywood’s after-party-rich Bird Streets.

The entrance leads to an elegant lounge with surreal wallpaper strewn with phantom limbs, flowers with eyes and the occasional extraterrestrial dinosaur. sbe enlisted the renowned Rockwell Group for the design. Inside, guests can lounge, dine, or dance in four distinct environments. Between a sculpted fire place, mid-century banquettes and the state-of-the-art kinetic ceiling covered in 15 folding mirrored panels over the dance floor, there is something for everyone. The ceiling starts in a closed position and over the course of the evening, as the energy builds, the mirrored planes gradually unfold revealing a digital light show above creating a dramatic reflective landscape.

The most Instagrammable feature is the Rockwell Group-designed wallpaper, inspired by exotic foliage and magical surrealism. Plus, there’s a photo booth, lined in the wallpaper, that can easily fit eight-plus people. But have a game plan upon entering, because mastering the boomerang-like gif setup can take a minute. It’s only a matter of time before Nightingale gains mention in a hip-hop song, just like Drake and the Game did for its predecessor, Greystone Manor.

West Hollywood // 10 PM – 2 AM // Wed, Sat, Sun

Bootsy Bellows

Get a taste of tinseltown at Bootsy Bellows in WeHo, an original nighclub by David Arquette and the H.Wood group (Santa Monica’s Shore Bar). The ultimate LA hotspot boasts plush banquettes to lounge, while sipping specialty cocktails and taking in the a-list clientele. Hang out for live performances, burlesque shows, wild costume parties and dinner theatre spectacles. Snap a candid in the photo booth and capture one of the wildest parties the West has to offer.

West Hollywood // 10 PM – 2 AM // Tues, Fri, Sat

Villa Lounge

What is it, exactly, that keeps stars like Leonardo DiCaprio, Kanye West, Demi Moore, Javier Bardem and even 70-year-old Dustin Hoffman (his son DJs there) coming back to Villa night after night despite the near-constant presence of paparazzi?

It starts with the design.

“There’s sort of an overtone of a bordello,” says Villa’s lead designer and architect, Lionel Ohayon, of the bar. “The general idea is that it’s a residential house . . . but an eccentric Hollywood Hills home. Things seem very familiar, but a little off-center at the same time.”

Which brings us back to the concept of creating a club that feels like someone’s (slightly bawdy) home. “You have to know someone in order to come in,” says the lounge’s owner, former SBE heavyweight Reza Roohi.

The best person to know at Villa? Roohi himself.

“I just created a ‘Villa black card,’ ” he says of the radio-frequency identification VIP cards that will go into operation in the next few weeks. “Certain clients, people like Michael Bay, will get these. If the door guy doesn’t recognize you when you pull up at valet, it will send a [radio] signal to a hand-held device with the door man, with the customer’s picture and vital stats.”

Such is one of the most exclusive spots in LA.

West Hollywood // 10 PM – 2 AM // Tues & Fri

Hyde Sunset

Meet Hyde Sunset Kitchen + Cocktails, the huger, patio-wrapped-restaurant reincarnation of SBE’s infamous celebrity hideout, now with former Whist/41 Ocean chef Chris Crary in the kitchen—opening Sunday at the old XIV space in West Hollywood.

It looks like a great dinner-date spot in here. A moody room of raw woods, Eastern carpets and hanging metal sprockets that all cultivate a breezy, arty Beachwood Canyon cabin vibe. For, well, a this-section-of-Sunset crowd.

But your ultimate aim is a rustic wooden table out on the patio, under trees and a graffiti-scrawled mural by the wood-burning fireplace. That’s what industry experts call a clincher. Then comes the fried-chicken-and-kimchi buttermilk-biscuit sliders, sambuca mussels, a ribeye and, if the occasion requires, a four-pound lobster.

Soon, they’ll open the lounge back near the entrance, full of the old bottle-service shenanigans.

West Hollywood // 10:30 PM – 2 AM // Thurs, Fri, Sat 

Highlight Room

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.

Hollywood – 10:30 – 2 AM, Wed – Sat
