Wednesday Night Hot Spots

Bigfoot Lodge

3172 Los Feliz Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90039

London Calling: DJ Lee keeps the British beats going as insouciant Eastsiders drink their way through $3 pints of Guinness and pretend they're across the pond. Expect skinny boys (and girls) in tattered flannel, skinny jeans and perfectly disheveled hair.


7994 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90046

Those who are easily offended, steer clear of this place. Legendary gay porn producer Chi Chi LaRue hosts one of the dirtiest, porn-star filled nights of debauchery and fun. (It's called "hump day" for a reason, kids.)


1822 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026

Bob Marley lives: Hemp-wearing locals and the vegans who love them line up alongside Eastside hipsters at this funky spot for roots rock reggae.


1650 N Schraeder Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028

Wednesdays at this red-hued nightspot offer a more low-key energy than the crowded Saturday nights, but the code is still dress to impress. DJ Sean Patrick spins rock tunes all night while young Hollywood types hang around the outdoor patio. In other words, it's more about drinking than dancing.

La Cita

336 S Hill St, Los Angeles, CA 90013

Hablas espanol? Mucho Wednesdays are when this trendy downtown haunt is translated into a multicultural, music-filled playground. DJs Noir, Pajaro and Pitxu get the crowd of Spanish speaking hipsters and Latinophiles moving to a mix of Latin pop and danceable rock.

Goa Restaurant - closed

1615 Cahuenga Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028

Don't roll with the Friday night A-list crowd? Don't worry. Wednesdays are when all the little people have a chance to live it up on the Cahuenga Corridor. Tip: Dress to impress with a higher ratio of girls-to-guys to get inside.

Beauty Bar

1638 N Cahuenga Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028

Hot, hard and loud, Needles and Pins brings alternative-electro beats to a fashionable Hollywood crowd. The cool vibe, retro-glam stylings and no-cover door keep the party going well into the night. Guyliner optional.

Vcr Bar

8623 Melrose Ave, West Hollywood, CA 90069

With the most exclusive door policy in L.A. right now, Villa is indeed the new Hyde. If you're on the list--and you better make sure you are, otherwise they won't valet your car--Wednesday is the best night to watch overexposed A-listers fresh from their latest film set (or, more likely, rehab) pass by the paparazzi-lined entrance to party the night away.

Elevate Lounge

811 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90017

Get high: This Downtown L.A. club located on the 21st floor of a multi-use skyscraper is already a popular weekend spot with loft-dwelling locals. Skip the weekend hustle and drop by on Wednesdays for a quieter, more laidback time.

Social Hollywood

6525 W Sunset Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028

Promoters Pantera and Zen keep the crowds lined up outside this chic club every Wednesday night. Expect an upscale scene, pricey cocktails and priceless flirting.
