Doheny Room in Los Angeles 31 May 2023
If you want all the glamour of an old-school members club with all the perks of a modern nightclub, then you have to check out the Doheny Room in LA. Unlike some members clubs, which can be very secluded to the point of being stuffy, the Doheny Room nightclub embraces the character of the best places to be in Los Angeles, with floor to ceiling windows allowing in streaming light in the early hours of the evening and lush greenery creating a fresh, wild, yet classy atmosphere. The venue offers all sorts of seating arrangements, from standard bistro style tables, to bar seats, to booths, to couches. All of the seats are incredibly comfortable, so no matter whether you like to hang out at the bar, party with friends, mingle, or people watch, you will enjoy doing so. Offering a relaxed, high quality dining experience with a refined take on contemporary American cuisine, it is the perfect place to start your night out. The menu, put together by Executive Chef Danny Elmaleh, is reasonably priced and the food is fresh and delicious. They also offer a range of speciality cocktails, draft beers, and wine by the glass. Unlike some cheaper venues they do not use cheaper alcohols for mixing their cocktails, and their menu states exactly which high end name brand bottle is going into your carefully crafted drink. Their range of wines is very impressive, and whether you're having a bite to eat or staying the night, you will enjoy the right wine for the moment. The bottle service at this luxurious club is an absolute must. At least once during your time in LA you need to treat yourself to this one of a kind pampering. The staff are unbelievably attentive, the drinks are flowing, and the party keeps on rolling in style. Like many members clubs in LA, the Doheny Room closes a bit earlier than your standard nightclub. The upside is that it is open almost every night of the week and a perfect place to start an indulgent night out in West Hollywood. Parking is available for a small fee, which adds to the benefits of using the Doheny Room to start your night. And what is more, because it opens and closes a bit earlier the party tends to get lively a bit early too. So if you're not much of a night owl, you can still enjoy the luxury of the Doheny Room private members club without needing to stay up. All in all, the Doheny Room has a bit of something for everyone. That said, not everyone can get in! Make sure to get on the guest list and/or reserve bottle service or a table. And you need to adhere to the dress code. It's business casual, so you need to be dressed at least slightly sharply. Men need to wear suits and collared shirts with patent shoes, and women need to wear smart, elegant dresses. Absolutely no sportswear, distressed clothes, or men's jewellery besides watches.

L.A. clubbing is interesting to say the least, and depending on what you expect, you will either be confused or totally wowed. As the city is such a creative place, expect to see some of the latest and most interesting concept clubs and themed clubs.

Pop up clubs are also plentiful, as are venues that host radically different events basically every night or every week. If you are always looking for the latest thing, if you don't have set expectations of every venue, and you look forward to special events like club anniversaries or holidays, then L.A. club scene will keep your curiosity satisfied. I guarantee you that if you hit as many clubs as possible one weekend, and then come back the next weekend and hit the same clubs, you will have two extremely different and equally amazing experiences.

L.A. is well known in the dance music community for bringing some of the best and freshest tunes to rock out to. If you are one of those people who just can't help but hit the dance floor wherever you go, and if you feel disappointed every time you go to a city and find maybe one club with good music and a big dance floor, then L.A. is going to make you very happy. Most clubs here have a bare-bones dance floor area, even if the seating is otherwise luxurious, giving plenty of space for you to show off your moves.

Of course, if you are not the artistic type and you would rather be surrounded by luxury than enjoying a new creative concept, that's not to say L.A. won't offer you anything. Old-style Hollywood glamour is alive and well in this beautiful city. Members' clubs, dining clubs, and celebrity clubs are abundant.

This is one of the few cities in the world where you can guarantee you will see some celebrities just by being in the right venue. Whether you just enjoy knowing you are surrounded by fame and talent, you want to get a feel for what it would be like to live in this bustling city, or you want to meet your favourite celeb, this is a great place to do it. So if you are looking for great clubs in or near Hollywood where you have the best chances of seeing celebrities, check out nearby clubs and see which ones are the newest and hottest right now. After all, celebrities are people too, and, just like us, they want to go out for a wild night, have a few drinks, and dance the night away. Of course you might need to be in the VIP to see certain celebs, but surprisingly the atmosphere is so chill that you will also see them at the "everyday" tables as well.

In fact, many celebrities even feature in these clubs. Perhaps they are hosting an event, or they are actors with a pet project band on the side, or they are putting themselves out there for a fundraiser. Whatever the case, don't be surprised to see famous names announced in the most unlikely places. That is part of the charm of L.A., after all: you can be whatever and whoever you want to be, if only for a night.
