Miyagi's, Los Angeles
Ten blocks of Sunset strip from Doheny to La Ciegena St. offers a smorgasbord of clubs, bars, and restaurants. Walk or better yet rent a limo (the giant hummer limo is quite popular) to "cruise" the strip and it's local color.
Dress Code: Dress is amazingly casual unlike NYC and Miami's south beach. The trendier clubs had dressier folks in line but they were, after all still standing in line. I am not in the "Hollywood know" on trendy club access but I am told the gals always get in, the guys with a hundred bucks to spare usually get in, and it helps to arrive in a limo or other high- end ride. Oh, it also it helps to be famous;)
The world famous Sunset Strip is the ultimate LA party scene destination. You can catch glimpses of it on "Celebrities Uncensored" on E! If that doesn't say it all, I don't know what does.
Personally, I don't like the Strip 'cause it's too crazy for me. I'm not a young, rich Hollywood wannabe, so I don't really like to hang out with people who are. But, there's a lot goign on... which can make it fun.
I liked Miyagi's - a lesser known bar, restaurant, club. But, it's still packed.
When in Los Angeles, please visit 'Miyagi's', 'Dublin's', 'The Sky Bar', 'The Barfly' for your dancing pleasure's. All are on the famous Sunset Blvd.
These clubs draw in lot's of tourist from all around. Plus, the other unique quality of the sunset blvd street is during the hours of 10:00pm-3:00am the los angelians love to cruise up and down sunset, making travel by car along this route the longest drive in the world!
Dress Code: Dress to impress!
Miyagi's very L.A. feel, sushi/bar/aftermidnite dancing. I like to take out-of-towners here to experience a little bit of the glamourous L.A. life, though it is not as pricey as other places.
Across the street is Dublins, a more casual, actually has a dance floor, and a more fraternity/sorority crowd.
Sushi Bar combined with Dance Bar.
First you have your Sushi (this is not the place to have great Sushi though...) then the party just goes off! Expect about 20 ladies to dance on the bar counter and a whole bunch on the tables in the 'dining area'. Its just wild...
Miyagi's has 3 floors, each with bars and dining niches.
Its a celebrity hang out...I saw Rodney King and Carmen Electra and others lounging there.
Dress Code: somewhere between casual and formal, people like to show off a little bit...
