Zanzibar

For great world music on the Westside, Zanzibar is a surprisingly little-known hotspot that's great for dancing. It's one of the best-kept secrets of the Westside, hidden on Arizona and 5th on a dark corner, and not much to speak of in the way of signage. It's a bit of a labyrinth at first, but after you find your way through the halls and small rooms, you'll find yourself in the middle of a nice-sized dance floor, surrounded by all kinds of people who are there for one thing and one things only - to shake what their mama gave them like there was no tomorrow. You'll find the sounds to Africa, Brazil, Eastern Europe, the Balkans, and Thailand swirling around you, mixed with blues, hip-hop, drum and bass, and house - but not too much, this is definitely world music territory.
The drinks are a little pricey, but Zanzibar is not really a place to drink, meet people, or talk. You dance at Zanzibar and that's it. If you need a little help getting your dancing shoes on, the Moroccan-inspired decor and ottomans can help, as well as the projected videos of people dancing all over the world. Zanzibar has different themes every night, and we're just talking about Thursday nights. Thursday night is the night to go and experience one of the best nights at any Los Angeles dance club.
