Where in LA can you dance until the crack of dawn? Check out our top 5 nightclub picks for the best places to party in Los Angeles.
Bar Marmont, the late-night lounge located at the Chateau Marmont, is an institution. If you're lucky enough to get through the (tight) door at Andre Balazs' West Hollywood hotspot, you may not leave. Anyone who is anyone hangs out here late night thanks to Marmont's privacy, dark corners and delectable designer cocktail list. And if you need a place to stay late night, cross your fingers that a bungalow at the Chateau is available.
Bootsy Bellows is one of the coolest clubs in Hollywood. Under the direction of owner David Arquette (the other owners include John Terzian, Darren Dzienciol, Deborah Maguire and Brian Toll) the Sunset Strip spot is a mixture of vintage cool and complete whimsy. Dapper bartenders serve craft cocktails created by Joel Black of Black LAB Ventures while a variety of live acts from costumed burlesque dancers to DJ' to live musical acts to even puppets provide entertainment in the background. It must be seen to be believed.
Hollywood's hottest stars come to party at Greystone Manor. Dinner service from sbe's executive Chef Danny Elmaleh begins at 6 pm, but late night is when the club is at its best. The beautiful people come out to play and party in the old Hollywood-style venue, whose interior can best be described as neo-Renaissance meets neo-Gothic décor glamour.
The mega-club has returned to LA Las-Vegas style in the form of Lure. This Hollywood hot spot is massive, made for dancing and easily one of the best places to spend a Saturday night in Los Angeles. In addition to its 50,000 watt Array sound system and LED walls, Lure also features a state of the art Kryosystem that pulsates in time with the music. This gorgeous locale -- designed by Hospitality Design's Wave of the Future 2009 award winner Gulla Jonsdottir -- is also one of the top spots in LA to see your favorite DJ's perform.
For the ultimate and intimate clubbing experience, head to AV. Located in the historic Marion building, this is one club that is all about the show. There are three custom go-go platforms for dancers, aerial rigs for theatrical performances, a Funktion One Sound System, a Steve Lieberman-designed lighting system, seven 60' LED screens flush mounted to each bottle service table for custom video graphics and branding and private valet and red carpet features for VIPs.
