Downtown Los Angeles is well known for its gourmet restaurants, delicious happy hour cocktails, and of course, the Downtown LA Artwalk. But lurking in the streets, behind closed doors and a booming sound system are some of the most unforgettable club experiences in all of Los Angeles. If you're looking for a wild night, the clubs in Downtown LA are the place to get it started!
Downtown Los Angeles holds a wide variety of clubs, from La Cita where the young hipsters tend to congregate, to the Conga Room which attracts a trendier crowd, to the all-out no-holds-barred dance party that is Club Mayan, you can find it all in Downtown LA. The great thing about these clubs is that they're all in walking distance to an all-night bistro, the latest bar, and all things cutting edge. Make a night of it!
The neighborhood around the nightclubs in downtown LA can be intimidating; only a decade ago this area was derelict and abandoned to the homeless and drug addicts. But a recent renaissance has changed the face of the heart of the City of Angels, and now 30,000 new residents plus a bevy of new art galleries, restaurants, bars and clubs call downtown LA home. The new vibe is young, artistic and progressive, and the nightclubs in downtown LA have answered the call of its new youthful populace with a collection of unique lounges and nightclubs.
First-timers should check out the Downtown LA Art Walk every first Thursday for a fun introduction to the neighborhood.
