Hollywood has some of LA’s hippest and most happening party scenes — and not just because of the celebrity sightings.
While the “hot spots” change every few months (partygoers tend to tire of a place pretty quickly) some places have earned the loyalty of stars, moguls and the regular LA residents.
The music is amazing, thanks to a fantastic list of DJs. Go here on a Tuesday. Might be hard to find this place, though — just go to Cahuenga between Selma and Hollywood. Look fora blue building with an orange awning. Then, walk to the back and ask for the doorman.
1626 N. Cahuenga Blvd. (323) 462-7196
The hang out of young alterna-rockers. Monday’s the best day, since it’s the local radio station KROQ’s “Zeke’s Backyard” night.
Burgandy Room, 1621 1/2 N. Cahuenga Blvd. (323) 465-7530
Opium Den, 16051Ž2 N. Ivar Ave. (323) 912-0636
Best place to get a drink… and to find a date. Bartenders are really friendly, and you may be able to meet someone interesting while waiting for your order.
1610 Vine. (323) 463-7777.
The Frolic Room (Hollywood and Vine)
Go here after the theater show ends. Love the wall paper mural that features the stars of Old Hollywood. But if you feel Marilyn Monroe’s talking to you, you know you’ve had enough.
6245 Hollywood Blvd. (323) 462-5890.
