If you go to catalinachamber.com they have hotel availability for the next 3 weeks listed one week at a time. Some hotels have a 2 or 3 night minimum for Labor Day weekend.This should help you find a place to stay.

Avalon is a pretty chilled out place. It's not really known for nightlife, but it's still fun, especially if you have a good group and a laid-back attitude.

I think there is basically just one night club with dancing (chi-chi's?). But there are some other bars like Luau Larry's that are fun in to the early evening.

Depending on who's in town at the time the island can be very mellow or randomly lively.

During the day, I recommend hanging out at the Marlin Club. Reasonable drinks, cool atmosphere. Also, Descanso Beach Club is good during the day for drinks on the beach (live music some days too).

My wife and I will be there over Labor Day too....

We love the Pavilion Lodge, just steps away from the water. Also a large grass patio area to sunbathe, and free breakfast. Luau Larry's is right in front. It's such a fun place for nightlife. Have a great time!
