Penthouse LA, also known as PH West Hollywood, Penthouse West Hollywood, and Pent House LA, is one of the best new club concepts we've seen in a while! This awesome split club offers the best of both worlds: a fantastic LA dayclub by day, and a fun and luxurious nightclub after the sun goes down. What's not to love at this, one of West Hollywood's hottest dance clubs?

This club offers both of the highlights of LA clubbing. The first being a fantastic pool party during the day. If you want to hang out with singers, actors, athletes, models, etc, then this is a great place to hit during the day.
By night it turns into an even more energetic nightclub, with indoor and outdoor environments. Again, you can expect to see celebrities hanging out, but the night is also a great time to see celebrities performing. The dayclub tends to focus more on DJs and the beach party atmosphere, whereas the nightclub offers the highest quality acts and traditional clubbing.
The decor is absolutely insane. It combines nature and classic retro disco designs with modern club fixtures and lighting, for a sort of "back to the 80s" vibe. It really works well both by day and at night, and there are even some features such as go go platforms and cabanas which make it a great place to spend all day.
Service in general can be a bit slow, especially during dayclub hours when the party can get really packed and really active. The best way to get around this is to book a table with bottle service, to make sure you get the full VIP treatment you deserve. Bottle service isn't too expensive here, and they have some top quality brands, as well as some great bundle options if you're a large group. The price difference from alcohol to nonalcoholic drinks is pretty steep. This isn't uncommon at nightclubs in LA, but the difference can be quite dramatic and non-drinkers may be a bit annoyed. They sometimes serve light bites, but generally only during major night events. As far as we have seen, they do not serve food during daytime hours.
The dress code is pretty similar by day and by night: stylish beach casual. The general theme here is young, skimpy, and sexy, with booty shorts, strappy tops, flowing maxi dresses, suspenders, fishnets, etc for the women, and fitted tees, smart shirts, and fitted jeans or shorts for the men. Sandals, men's jewellery, and sportswear are fine as long as your outfit in general is chic.
That said, there is one strong difference between day and night: Whereas by day swimwear is encouraged, by night the Penthouse would prefer if you kept to full clothes by night. And it should go without saying but although swimming is fine at most of their day events (and they will warn you when the pool is closed during a day club event), by night it is not allowed for many health and safety reasons.
