Party Earth The Three Clubs Review

The Scene

The Three Clubs in Hollywood, Los Angeles is a pretension-free dive with DJs, bands, burlesque, & more. Join the Swingers in LA with Party Earth.

The lack of overt signage or a snaking entry line may mean that finding The Three Clubs takes a stroke of luck, but once discovered, this deliciously divey bar offers a winning combination of classic cocktails, cabaret, and live music.

The relaxed door policy means no one’s left out on Vine because they’re wearing comfortable kicks, but guests will still find a palpable mix of casual and swanky patrons inside, all rubbing elbows and clinking glasses in the near-total darkness of the front room.

Cool kids sip Godfather Sours and single malts at low tables and circular booths tucked against the velvety red walls, gearing up to roll the dice on the dance floor in the back room, where DJs spin everything from house to Top 40 from their raised booth near the stage.

Casual vibe aside, the venue has managed to attract some impressive acts to that stage, including John Mayer, Diplo, and Queens of the Stone Age, and was even featured in several scenes of the movie Swingers.

Regular performers, however, tend to be up-and-coming rockers and tassel-boobed burlesque troupes.

Heavy-handed bartenders keep the musicians, actors, and after-work locals swilling hard from 6pm to close, making the place as hospitable to heavy boozing as it is industry schmoozing.

And with a gracious Happy Hour seven days a week, a night at The Three Clubs is never a gamble.

Tip from Jonah:

There’s a semi-secret special on Friday and Saturday nights where you can get $4 cocktails from 10 to 11pm. Just ask the bartender.

  • Crowd

    Hipsters, rockers, whiskey aficionados, actors, the anti-lux Hollywood crowd, casual locals, post-show theatergoers from nearby Theater Row on Santa Monica Boulevard, mid-20s to late 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Weekly calendar usually includes DJ sets on Fridays and Saturdays from 10pm, live music Tuesdays through Thursdays, Sundays and occasionally before the DJ on Fridays and Saturdays, and burlesque on Mondays. Live theater one Sunday a month at 8pm. Check venue calendar for updated listing.

    Jukebox in the front room packed with soul, indie, and rock standards and usually played at near-deafening levels.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Taco truck outside serves tacos daily from 6pm–2:30am.

    Ample street parking.

    Happy Hour daily 6–9pm.

  • Prices

    Cover charge $0–$10 (back room only), though usually no cover charge. Burlesque show tickets $15. Beer $3–$7, wine $8, cocktails $7–$12, bottle service $120–$300.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Anything goes: road show t-shirts, flannel, skinny jeans, big buckles, cool cat vintage wear, rocker girl outfits, sexy skirts, big-ass boots.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Fridays and Saturdays for a solid lineup of DJs spinning hard in the back room, Sundays (and occasional Fridays and Saturdays) for live music or to check out the monthly theater troupe, Mondays for burlesque, or any night midweek to chill out in an old-school lounge like Grandpa used to…minus anybody who looks like Grandpa.

  • Close By

    The Well (6255 West Sunset Boulevard) promises a similar escape from the stereotypical Hollywood crowd, as well as a budget-friendly Happy Hour and an atmosphere more conducive to conversation.

Packed calendar of fun, nice hidden local. Solid spot.

I wouldn’t drive across town for 3 Clubs, but when I lived a few blocks away I used to go here all the time. The place is very suave, with dim red lighting and plush leather booths, but still kinda divey….and the fact that they have carpet on the floor gives me the heeby jeebies. But I dig it. The place is split up with a front and back of the house; the front has a large bar, lots of seating, while the back is for the constant array of live shows from a tiny little stage. Never seen a bad act here, from burlesque to 80s cheese to comedy to cool dubstep to rocking rock bands. Drinks are kinda meh and a bit on the pricey side but most music venues bring a bump or two, is what it is. Awesome jukebox.
BILLY IDOL , FRED DURST and more... WOW!!!

I was at The Three Clubs on Saturday for a special event and was blown away by the "super group" live performance that was on stage... Billy Idol, Fred Durst, Steve Stevens, Donovan Lietch, Billy Morrison and more rocked out the packed room. Sooooo much FUN. Aside from Mr. Idol doing "Hot In The City" "White Wedding" & "Rebel Yell", the rest of the crew did covers of "You Really Got Me", "Wonderwall" and "Suffragette City" all with the entire room singing along... after that it went into straight DJ dance mode with Rock, Soul & New Wave. GOOD TIMES
