TAO in Los Angeles offers a combined restaurant and fine lounge experience to blow your mind. Strongly inspired by the TAO Downtown in New York, TAO Los Angeles brings a sophisticated edge to your night lounge experience.
The interior of this posh LA club exudes luxury, elegance, and culture. Soft, warm lighting, stunning décor, and comfortable furniture come together to create the perfect atmosphere to drink, relax, and lounge in. It has a ground level and a lowered seating area, forming a sort of platform where everyone can find their perfect space. Our favourite has got to be the Skybox, letting you look out over the main dining room, the perfect opportunity to see and be seen. Or you could find your place seated at the Dragon Bar, where you can choose from a full beverage menu of fine wines, sparkling champagne, and expertly crafted cocktails.
When it comes to the restaurant aspect, the menu on offer covers a variety of fusion cuisine made from only the best and freshest ingredients. They have several signature dishes as well as specials, and cater to different tastes and needs. It’s definitely worth it to head down for dinner and stay for the night.
Age of admission is 21. That said, the typical age of guests is from 25 to 40. If you want to meet some high class, mature, educated people to talk and drink with, this is the place for you. Speaking of class, if you want to get in you have to be dressed to impress. Men need to be dressed at least business casual, but black tie optional or lounge suit outfits are preferable. Women need to be in dress suits at least, but ideally a cocktail or evening dress and heels. Absolutely no street wear, sportswear, distressed clothes, alternative fashion, etc. If you need to change your jacket or shoes, or need them to keep your coat or bag safe, inquire about the cloakroom.
This is one the clubs in LA that are open every night of the week. They don’t stay open quite as late as some of the nearby dance clubs, but that makes them a perfect stop to start the night. Settle in at TAO for dinner and a relaxed start to the night, and move on to another club to dance until the sun comes up. What could be better for a night out in Los Angeles? We also cannot recommend their special events service highly enough. If you want to reserve the whole restaurant and lounge for a private party, your guests will be left speechless by the class and luxury of the venue.
As such, TAO has earned its reputation as the busiest restaurant in LA. Don’t expect to get in at the door. You need to reserve a table and be on the guest list at the very least. They advise booking up to two weeks in advance if you want to get in. So don’t hesitate and reserve your place as soon as you know the date you will want.
