Housed inside the former Los Angeles Stock Exchange building, Exchange LA serves as a clear indication of Downtown LA’s nightlife resurgence. With a multi level venue that fits over 1500, Exchange is Downtown LA's go-to spot for electronic dance music.
The décor is a mix of restored Art Deco styles and distinctly modern touches, from the massive bronze doors out front to the intricately painted forty-foot ceilings and the eye-popping LED screen composed of more than one million bulbs.
There’s a sofa-lined hallway and adjoining lounge at street level, but most of the trendy guests head straight up to the Trading Floor – so named because that’s what it used to be – where they let loose to trance, house, or whatever other dance-friendly beats the DJ’s spinning that night.
Laser lights, wafer-thin house dancers, and pulsing fog machines are definitely not in short supply, but VIPs looking for a more intimate environment have several options, from the booths in the mezzanine to the chilled-out Rockefeller Room or the private dance floor in the top-level Sky Loft.
Six bars spread over four levels means grabbing a drink is less of a hassle than at other packed venues, and with reportedly more bathrooms than any other club in LA, getting rid of that drink is easier, too.
Exchange and Create are the two EDM powerhouses in LA, with all the biggest names coming through one or the other. If you're a fan of dance music we'd highly recommend you visit both!
