Raspoutine, the famous Parisian restaurant club with locations in Rome, Marrakesh, and Monaco, is taking over the Villa Lounge in West Hollywood. Stationed next door to the iconic blue Pacific Design Center, the Villa Lounge is open for business. Raspoutine’s formula is straight out of a scene from Doctor Zhivago, complete with dark red wallpaper, leather booths, and lots of vodka. Performances usually grace the stage while the audience dines on beef Stroganoff and caviar. As soon as dinner is complete, DJs take over for the dance and drink crowd.
