Los Angeles Night Club

Searching for the hottest nightclubs in Los Angeles? Use our guide to LA nightclubs to find the party and discover why this city is the epicenter of entertainment. From the velvet ropes of Hollywood and the funky beats in Downtown to the gay-friendly dance scene in WeHo, nightclubs in LA come in many flavors - and they can change names, decor and owners faster than a techno beat. The city is full of exclusive venues and long lines, but you can also find incognito hangouts. On any given night, you can encounter a top-tier DJ throwing down on the dance floor at a multi-level mega-club, or appearing at random at an underground event. Head to Downtown, Silver Lake and Echo Park for hipster parties with cool electronic music, or dress up and hit Hollywood for wild dance clubs and an upscale scene. The Sunset Strip still attracts a trendy crowd, and you'll find college hot spots near USC and UCLA. Go retro at a steampunk speakeasy, get crazy at a polysexual dance-athon or rave until dawn with a half-naked crowd. Lounge at an easygoing dive on the Westside, chill out at an intimate after-hours hideaway or find Vegas-style entertainment. With so many Los Angeles nightclubs, this city is a perfect party destination for the young and the free.

We have gathered 27 nightclubs in the City of Angels. So, which are the best nightclubs in Los Angeles? Just scroll down and find the LA nightclubs best suited for you.
