While it is true that Los Angeles does actually sleep (clubs and bars must close their doors at 2:00 a.m. here), there's still plenty of life in the city's nights. There are places to party past midnight all over town, offering up live music, DJs spinning tunes and even a slightly wacked-out floor show now and then. It's easy to spot the newest places around town; just look for where the after parties (after movie premieres, after awards shows, after openings) are happening, for that's a sure sign. It helps to be where the action is, as The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel knows. Across the street from the TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX, the go-to favorite venue for movie premieres, the Roosevelt's various nightspots (Teddy's, The Spare Room, Beacher's Madhouse, the Tropicana Bar and Pool) are always hosting a celebrity scene. It's a fickle scene here, however, as one minute My House is the coolest place to be, the next it is DOA. We love the spots that keep on bringing the best the city has to offer for more than just a nanosecond, like The Mint for live music, The Abbey Food & Bar for a gay night out and The Conga Room for lively action with a Latin beat. But no matter which popular place you choose, do keep your eyes open, for this is the home of Hollywood's royalty and you never know when someone very famous might go dancing past.
