The staff makes this place worth it – typically, i am not a club person. i grew up seeing dj's at warehouse raves, not bars. i didn't expect to like circus, but i had a wonderful time. the employees there were awesome. they gave high-fives and hugs to all the people that came into the club and they checked on us a few times throughout the night to make sure we were having a good time.
the crowd was so-so. i am not convinced that they listen to electronic music other than when they are at the club (since few of them really dance and they seem to like the less talented, but more accessible dj's over the opposite ones).
but the vibe is positive and there's lots of space. and that's all that really matters.
Good: Interior, soundsystem, ambience, dj - Bad: cans with beer (not done) and counting skills of personell – I'm dutch and in Holland i've seen all the best dj's, nicest clubs, from trendy to underground. This club I was in foor the first time last saturday is outstanding. The embiemce is good and friendly, the people a little bit crazy (tht's going out) and the asian dj was ASTONISHING. Damn, this guy should go to Sensation. Tiesto, Back up!!! Inside is really what a good place to dance needs. Two big dancefloors, a small bar upstairs and a good large chill out. Outside is not very beautifull but cozy. Personell is friendly and fast but have some problems with counting. A must if you like good trance music and love to dance. The soundsystem is one of the best ever heard.
User review by charmschooldropout – Go for at least the drag show - it's pretty cool.
Great Place At Hosting Big Name DJ – I was at the Armin Van Buren concert and was the first time at Circus. This club is a great place to host top DJ in the world.
Never disappointed – Circus Disco is the place you want to be especially on Saturday nights at Spundae. If you can handle good trance, house and breaks, then you'll have a blast! The top DJ's around the world perform here, therefore Spundae is absolutely packed with those who want to dance and enjoy great music. Besides all this, the bar tenders are very kind and serve great drinks. There is a fruits/snack stand every Saturday night which is free and a Mexican food joint in the club! The main dance floor is huge with great light and sound systems. I've been going to Spundae, Circus Disco for 3 years straight and have realized that it simply has a positive, good vibe about it. Its the type of place where you hug the doorman and your bar tender and see what they are doing later on to hang out!
Amazing DJ Line up – Make sure to check the weekly line-up 95% of world best class techno DJ played here. Friendly and great atmosphere for dancing and mingling. Make sure you buy tickets to avoid long line (especially when big DJ is in town) or come in early before 9:30 PM
NOT Gay on Sat Nights!!! – This is a great club- but to categorize it as a "gay" club seems misleading to me- at least on a Saturday night. My friend and I were there last Saturday and the mix was about 90% straight, which made it difficult to know who to approach. If you want a more "gay" mix, check out the Factory or other clubs further west on Santa Monica Blvd.
FUN FUN FUN! – This is the only dance club I will go to IN L.A!
The music is great, the people are fun and if you go early you can eat!
Superb Club – Great techno club. Always has world-class DJs. Big dance floro with great crowd. Make sure to buy tickets ahead of time to avoid long waits.
