L.A. Night Spots

Looking for great night spots in Los Angeles? I got you covered.

Here are some hottest nightspots to check out if you want to have a good time, while enjoying the city's diverse culture, entertainment, and dining options.

Santa Monica and Beverly Hills don't have many late-night spots. So most of these are in West Hollywood.

Thanks to California's strict no-indoor smoking laws, you'll need to head outdoors if you want to smoke while you drink. Fortunately, these spots offer plenty of outdoor seating areas.

This list includes options for everyone, from the arts and entertainment-focused crowd to the business community. The city of Los Angeles is home to a diverse population, including many LGBT individuals, and these nightspots are inclusive and welcoming to all.

While you're out and about, be sure to check out some of the local museums and bookstores to learn more about the city's rich history and demographics. And if you need to catch a concert, the Hollywood area is just a short Metro ride away.

Los Angeles has a thriving economy and business community, and these nightspots are just one example of the many ways in which the city's local property and environmental initiatives contribute to the economy. So come enjoy the city's great food, drinks, and culture, and experience all that SoCal has to offer.
