Nightlife - Dance Clubs
You’ll find up-and-coming twenty-somethings at this hip nightclub, which
has played host to many a scene in MTV’s reality series “The Hills.”
This club oozes divine decadence. Visitors can enjoy the outside patio, dance on the glass-enclosed floor, or ogle the "eye-dancers" who float overhead in glass boxes. A maze of mirrors leads to the dance floor, nearby are the roped-off VIP rooms that served as walk-in refrigerators in a past life but now hold Hollywood's glitterati.
HOLLYWOOD ATHLETIC CLUB
Leave your tennis shows and sweats at home. This pool hall, restaurant, and nightclub built in 1924 is home to some groovin' dance clubs. Saturdays feature a lively mix of progressive house music. Sundays, the sounds of Latin house, merengue, hip-hop, and salsa fill the air. The Hollywood Athletic Club also hosts concerts from internationally known DJs and bands.
Looks can be deceiving. This tiny Cuban restaurant-and-salsa club with its modest strip-lot locale draws the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Sandra Bullock, Jimmy Smits, and Jack Nicholson.
At what is quickly becoming Hollywood's most desirable dance floor, you'll find a young and beautiful crowd dancing the night away. Don't be deterred if you're a shade over 30 - grab a mojito and mingle.
A collection of dance clubs to suit your musical preferences. If you're into funky house or soul lounge, try Lollipop or Chocolate on Wednesday and Thursday. Hip-hop and funk rule on Friday at In the Raw or you can escape to the world of progressive house, trance, and Euro electronica at Pure on Saturday.
THE CONGA ROOM
Attracting such Latin-music luminaries as Pucho & The Latin Soul Brothers, this one-time health club on the Miracle Mile has quickly become the nightspot for live salsa and meringue. If you just want to enjoy the ambiance, their chef serves up savory Cuban fare in a setting that conjures the romance of pre-Castro Cuba or indulge yourself in the Conga Room's stylish cigar lounge.
Located at a former Brown Derby site, the club has been restored to its original luster and detailed with a heavy 1940s edge. With Big Bad Voodoo Daddy as the onetime house band and regular visits from Royal Crown Revue, this is the focal point for swing dancing in Hollywood - that said, dance space is often at a premium.
