King King's denizens are die-hard followers of electro, trance, house, and drum and bass, and are there to dance, dance, dance all night long.

Even though King King has been around for a while, it's a largely unknown spot, mainly due to not attracting the typical Hollywood crowd most other Hollywood clubs strive for. It's a little farther out of the way, but die-hard followers of electro, trance, house, and drum and bass can certainly find it above the din of the rest of the Hollywood scene. It's clear that King King's denizens are there for nothing but dance, dance, dance all night long. The vibe is eclectic and laid-back - there are no stories of mean bouncers, vapid bartenders, and a pretentious crowd here. It's one of the very few clubs open until 4am, so get some energy drinks in you, wear comfortable shoes, and be prepared to sleep for half the following day. Expect no shiny surfaces and plush couches here - it's a renovated warehouse space with minimal decor and furnishing, because the point is to...well, just dance!

Hip hop nightclub in Hollywood

In 1988, owner Mario Melendez, opened the King King with the intentions of showcasing roots-oriented music (Jazz, Afro-Cuban, Blues, Soul, Latin and Ska). He wanted to create a dwelling for QUALITY LIVE ENTERTAINMENT, and successfully, he converted a former Chinese restaurant (reborn, but not redecorated) into one of Hollywood's best kept secrets. Today, the King King books everything from indie rock to cuban timba/salsa; from electro to house, and hosts a wide range of events, including: multi-media theatre, French-cabaret, record-release parties, film screenings, wine tasting parties etc... A haven for creativity, the King King draws a celebrity crowd without being a trendy Hollywood spot thats hot one minute and not the next. King King regulars have included Iggy Pop, Billy Idol, Eric Clapton, the Gypsy Kings, Tom Waits, Keanu Reeves, Crispin Glover, Mick Jagger, Bruce Willis, Marc Ford, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, to name a few. KING KING Located in the Heart of Hollywood! Parking & entrance is behind the building off Whitley Ave Between Highland & Vine.
