Here is the deal...this place is good for a low key night where some friends can get together for some drinks and actually hear each other speak. It has never been over the top, action packed lounge (maybe back in the day it was) but has always been steady and a place that radiates a cool LA vibe. You definitely have to dress pretty classy if you want to get in here. Most spots don't enforce a dress code but this place actually checks you out to make sure you look legit. Just play the part and you'll get in. Once you're inside, you can either stay inside or hang out outside in the patio. They only have about 4 cabanas but there is plenty of room to roam around and also a few free standing tables as well to lay your drinks down. Drinks are a bit pricey but at least made really well. The mojitos are killer!!
Bottom line...is this is a great spot. on the weekdays when you want a pick-me-up low key cool night out or the weekends when it gets a little more foot traffic. And in the summer, you can't beat sleek patio drinking. staff is friendly and crowd is approachable.
Dress Code: Trendy
I wish I had some photos of this place. It was the 2nd club I went to in Southern California... I think I only got in due to early dinner reservations, it looked like one of those velvet rope places... The place has a great design, very South Beach, which I am used to... the food was decent, the drinks were not overpriced at all, I expected to spend much more. I did not get into VIP or have bottle service or any of that, but those who did looked like they were having fun. The only negative to this place was the youth- there are alot of the spoiled kids here, some girls I swear were under. It was also a bit hard to find, but, for awhile everything for me was hard to find!
Dress Code: I wore some trendy jeans, trendy T-shirt, and a jacket, and fit in well.
Beverly Hills doesn't have a "nightlife" scene (for clubs you have to venture to Hollywood or West Hollywood, a couple miles over)
The Backstage Cafe is the most lively, happening spot in BH after 10pm. Live performances happen on occasion, both by booked talent and the random rocker hangin out and jammin... and the menu is great bar-type food.
Open 11a-2am daily.
Dress Code: no real dress code...
Fun place that is a nice restaurant during "normal" dinner hours. Turns into a hot little dance club after 10pm on the weekends! Large balcony area where they have outdoor tables and heat lamps. Not a REAL nightclub in the traditional sense.
Dress Code: Trendy and a bit more dressed up. Black anything always works.
