Hip Nightlife in Los Angeles

Los Angeles has night spots as hip and fabulous as you want them to be; beautiful party people, starlets and young millionares are all out there having a good time. And you can join them provided you get past all the velvet ropes and can afford the drinks.

This list opens with a classic, the Bar Marmont on the Sunset Strip. Books have been written on the antics and escapades of the celebrities over the years in the Chateau Marmont; the bar is still peopled by the famous.

La Cita and the Short Stop are both a lot lower-key. La Cita is popular bar/music spot downtown with different crowds on different nights of the week. The Short Stop is a good Echo Park bar, there is often a lively crowd and sometimes DJs and dancing. The owners of the Short Stop also run Footsie's -- a cool bar in the Highland Park area.

Back on the fabulous track, Koi is a Hollywood restaurant/bar that is very much a part of the A-list scene. Geisha House, the sushi joint that Ashton Kutcher has a stake in, is also a hot-spot.

The list rounds out with a lot of Hollywood night spots. Other places that could be added to this selection are Cinespace, Avalon, as well as other nightclubs.

Downtown can hold its own as a nighttime destinations these days nowadays. In addition to La Cita (mentioned above), some hip places to check out downtown include The Edison, The Association, Cole's (with Varnish, a bar within a bar), and The Standard Rooftop Bar. . .
