Avalon nightclub in Hollywood is one of the city's most popular clubs, known for featuring top DJs and up and coming bands. It is located in a historic 1927 building near the corner of Hollywood and Vine that was once the Palace Theatre. Like many LA clubs, they seem to remodel every couple years to keep the venue fresh.
The space includes Avalon nightclub and Honey restaurant downstairs and Bardot (formerly Spider Club) upstairs.
Avalon is a large club space with a big dance floor and a full stage up front for live bands and DJs. VIP table service is available at booths on a mezzanine level at the opposite end of the stage overlooking the dance floor.
Honey is a connected room with spacious leather booths and chandeliers. After diners clear out of Honey, the space is incorporated into Avalon and tables are cleared for a second small dance floor with its own line-up of DJs.
The after-hours club Spider After Dark aka After Dark takes over Honey on Friday nights after 2 am. It can be confusing because Avalon overflows into the space before 2 am, then they close Avalon and make you pay another cover to get back in the same space through another door.
On Saturdays, Avalon stays open through the night without closing.
Avalon gives a name to each night, as is the trend in LA clubs. At this writing, Tiger Heat is the Thursday night gay night, Control is on Fridays and Avaland is on Saturdays, subject to change at any time. Same club, different name.
The Avalon space hosts outside concerts and special events on other nights.
Upstairs is Bardot, a restaurant, lounge and dance club with a much warmer and intimate atmosphere.
