    Elegant yet fun, decidedly Deco but with modern luxe twists, Bardot is one of the most beauteous clubs in Hollywood! The drinks are divine, but like the hot looks sported here, they're not cheap! Read more

    This lounge has it all, class, swanky decor, a comfortable ambiance, friendly staff and attracts good looking people(obviously one of the most important factors!).

    Wonder what Ryan Gosling's listening to? The actor is often found in the deejay booth of this club also known for burlesque shows, jazz and rock concerts–it even has room to showcase new art.

    Bardot often runs theme nights like “Classic Hollywood”– it helps to get in if you’re dressed for the theme. Entrance is smaller entrance to the side past the main entrance to the Avalon. Read more

    Smoking area in the back... indoors! This place is really dead if you get there too early, it's a bit of a late crowd.

    Stage right stairs tend to be less crowded and being a little higher up gives you a great view of the bands.
