Warwick

Best nightclub in Hollywood, Los Angeles!
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.

Sound

Sound

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 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.
