Party areas in Los Angeles
Party in West Hollywood
Highly recommended for young people, looking for never-ending parties. West Hollywood is the home of the best summer break parties in the city. Here, you can find clubs and bars with different music genres and daily events. Live music performances are very common in local pubs, where the local bends really know how to heat up the atmosphere.
Boulevard3 know to get pretty wild on weekends. The atmosphere explodes every time the dancers get on the bar counter and start pouring alcohol in everyone’s mouth. If you are looking for a place to chill and drink fabulous cocktails, check out the super cool Skybar and lounge.
Party in Venice Beach
Venice Beach area is another wild party zone with tons of clubs and pubs. Most of them are located at the coastline, where you can also find vibrant open-air patios and dance floors. Before going around the clubs, you can grab a beer and chill with your fellow travellers at the beach.
Circle Bar is one of the oldest party places in the city, a favourite place of many celebrities. Townhouse and the Del Monte Speakeasy bar has even longer tradition, and have a high reputation among true party maniacs.
Party in Hermosa Beach
The Hermosa Beach offers a laid-back atmosphere during the day but turns into a wild party zone in the late-night hours. The area is hosting fabulous after parties when most of the clubs in other areas are getting closed.
For true fans of the great beer, Patrick Malloy’s Irish Pub is the best choice. Other great places always crowded with locals and travellers are Sharkeez, Tower 12, and Standing room.
Dress codes & age restrictions
Even though Los Angeles is famous for the beautiful beaches and beach bars, flip flops are a big no-no in almost every pub and clubs in the city. Instead of wearing jeans and sports attire, we recommend you to go for a smart-casual look.
When it comes to the age limit, the LA has pretty much easy-going rules. The entrance in the bars and clubs is limited for 21 and above. However, don’t be surprised if you get asked to show your ID at the entrance of every single party place.
