Located on the ground floor of the Hard Rock Hotel, Fall Out Boy Pete Wentz’s Angels & Kings is an intimate, dark venue where, depending on the night, patrons might find rockers in skinny jeans or clubbers in high-end cocktail dresses.

Although Wentz himself has been known to grace the small stage, entertainment is usually provided by DJs spinning everything from dirty electro remixes to hip-hop from their elevated station, while the Gucci handbag set settles in for cocktails or bottle service at the clusters of elaborate couches and tables that fill the space.

Dozens of mug shots line the walls, alluding to the rowdier days of Sinatra, Hendrix, and other music legends, which draw nearly as many eyes as the buxom waitresses.

Attractive club types and emo hipsters converge at a large mirrored bar in the back, sipping cocktails under the reflective golden glow of vintage ornaments, while hallways to either side of the marble bar lead to the restrooms, where chalkboard walls prove irresistible to guests ready to scrawl everything from tipsy ramblings to phone numbers.

A place of dark luxury reminiscent of Marie Antoinette but with a rock star bent, Angels & Kings is truly a place fit for (occasionally tattooed) royalty.

Tip from Adriana:

For comfy seating and a great view of the stage, be sure to reserve one of the couches. Or better yet, pair the evening with a weekend stay in a Hard Rock suite!

Average rating:
Nice, rather swanky, but not a place to rage.
Jessica S. Oct 4, 2012
Aside from the god-awful DJ I saw here the last time I went, it’s a decent and fun place to hang out. Very dark and has big red booths that you can reserve as long as your group spends a certain amount of money. It's definitely a Saturday night spot and not a beer after work type of place, hence it not opening til 9pm most nights. The drinks were your average price for a bar in the area. My vodka cranberry drinks were $7. So for this type of bar, I was ok with the price. Don’t think it every gets super crowded. Bar stools are some of the most comfortable I have ever sat on. I know they book bands and other DJs so I’m not going to judge it based on the music. I’d go again if a band I knew was playing here. It’s one of those spots that swanky but not uber-pretentious, so you will see a fair amount of casual folks here. Friend of mine goes all the time because her boyfriend DJs and she says you will see everyone from old couples to young tourists to a few socialite types getting down. I like that, just haven’t seen it.
