Ruin Hollywood Details
RUIN HOLLYWOOD offers a darkly dreaming, decadent evening to destroy realism and to bring us closer to legend, myth, allegory, and dreams Every 2nd & 4th Saturdays of the month~ Guests are encouraged to wear their most lush, exquisite dark club couture or formal wear, with particular emphasis on rich, saturated hues to further evoke the dream.
In addition to the cult projections in The Parlour, you may also discover the alchemical solutions of our Absinthe Bar and Marriah (Club Discipline) as our exquisite hostess of Fetish & Erotica. And every 2nd Saturday we offer the artistic talents of The Night Gallery as curated by Heidi bluegirl (Bluegirl Gallery, Hive Gallery) and K.
