How a Night Out in LA Differs From Other Cities

By clubZone

The city of Angels is the land of movies, hills, beaches, highways and stars. Boasting a unique cultural landscape, here are some things that make Los Angeles unique.

  • Rooftop Bars are the Norm

    By clubZone

    If you're trying to beat the heat, make sure to check out the plentiful rooftop bars and restaurants in Los Angeles. Chill out, drink, eat, and take in the stunning views!

  • Bar Hopping is Geographically Difficult

    By clubZone

    Driving everywhere for a long time is the norm here because LA is immensely spread out. Decide on a spot for the night and stay put because you'll either be in the car or in line all night.

  • Make Reservations

    By clubZone

    If you want to dine at an LA hot spot or high-end restaurant, then reservations are essential. Be prepared to wait 30-45 minutes even then because restaurants overbook to ensure full seating.

  • Ladies' Night Is Every Night

    By clubZone

    Now this may not sound like a surprise to many people, but in Los Angeles, women are preferred over men to enter high end clubs. Also, bribes will most likely not work.

  • I Spy a Celebrity in Their Own Home

    By clubZone

    No other city makes partygoers go to a club because they think they will see a specific celebrity known to frequent it. It is the one city where the celebrity buzz reaches unimaginable levels.

  • Early or Very Late

    By clubZone

    Unlike other cities, bars in LA have a last call at 1:30 am. So to maximize your time, nights can kick off around 9:00 pm for some people. After-parties in Hollywood start much later, though.

  • Weekdays Over Weekends

    By clubZone

    In LA, the best days to go out are usually Monday to Thursday. These are the days where the locals come out to play. A much different crowd comes out on the weekends, which locals try to avoid.

  • Do Not Engage with Everyone

    By clubZone

    Not to say that LA is an unfriendly place, but people love their space here. You can look, but talking to everyone is not the norm. Stay friendly, but remain conscious of this cultural norm.
