Best Nightclubs in LA

Hiya,

just wondering what the best clubs in LA are and how difficult are they to get into?

Thanks,

S.

Depends on what night of the week - each club has a different night when it's considered THE place to go. Are you looking to dance? Just hang out and drink? Hobnob with celebrities? Most of the happening clubs are really just bars.

Nothing's difficult to get into if you go early - around 9. If you go at the height of the scene (10-11), you'll find a line, and a choosy doorman.

Hi Sugar123:

Check out this link:

…citysearch.com/find/…

They list all the bars and clubs in different categories depending on what you are looking for. I would say try to get on a guest list or arrive early. That's your best bet!

Have fun!

Bebe- that list is great for finding addresses and phone numbers (and the ranking system is interesting), but it's overwhelmingly long, even for a local!

Sugar - I recommend you check out these, or at least it's a start, as they're pretty much always happening spots:

Avalon

Bar Marmont

Chateau Marmont Hotel bar

Sky Bar

Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel bar (tough to get in, though)

Spider Club (also tough to get in)

Blu Monkey

Golden Gopher

Short Stop

Standard Hotel (both) bar

Beechwood

Brig

Wilshire

Actually that link is very easy to use and navigate. If you look on the left hand side you will see the clubs and bars broken into categories. (ie ... best dance club, best college bar, best lounge ect ...) It will then list the Best of with reviews ect ... I don't think it's very overwhelming at all.

I've used the website for other cities that I have visited before and it's been very helpful.
