Six LA Dance Clubs You Must See

Updated on July 23, 2016

The Los Angeles club scene has always been epic. Since the superstars of Hollywood made the whole city their playground; the diverse bits of the city came together with music and the whole place turned into a hazy drunken dream for those on the lookout for fun. Tourist flock to party in the massive city, to the high-rises downtown and the hippie scenester strip of Santa Monica, but no trip would be complete without experiencing the nightlife.There is still a thumping lively underground party scene in the city and the best way to reach it is through the mainstream dance clubs where supers stars and luminaries start their nights.


Avalon Hollywood

One of the seminal destinations in the world of LA clubs is the Avalon Hollywood. This place has an interior as massive as its reputation. You can find it right next to the landmark Capitol Records where superstar DJs from SoCal and worldwide came to buy their decks and vinyl. One of the main reason why a half an hour of a Angelinos night can get burned up on the freeway is because of the number of people from the edges of the count come here to party at the Avalon. The place was once a theater like some of the best venues in the city. They feature an EAW sound system and one of the two most popular nights there is the Tigerheat on Thursday for the gay/mixed crowd, Friday for alternative electronic dance acts Saturday for world-famous DJs like Paul Oakenfold and Kevin Saunderson.
