About Los Angeles, CA Nightlife
LA's nightlife scene is legendary, and with good reason from swanky cocktail lounges to frenetic dance clubs, from themed bars to laugh-out-loud comedy clubs, this city has it all. The vibe varies widely by neighborhood, so plan your night in advance. Hollywood traditionally supplies the hottest action, whether it's at über-trendy clubs like LAX and Mood or at the elegant, celebrity-riddled Chateau Marmont. Head west to Venice, Malibu, and Santa Monica, and a mellower atmosphere pervades neighborhoods by the beach. Catch an exceptional acoustic show at McCabe's Guitar Shop, or gaze at the sunset over cocktails at Moonshadows. Downtown and the Valley also have their fair share of hot spots; the Golden Gopher and Firefly make their homes here. With a seemingly endless variety of bars, clubs, and lounges, you'll have no trouble tailoring a night out to suit your taste.
