Santa Monica / Westside, Los Angeles –
Melding a little of the LA club scene with a laid-back Westside vibe, 31Ten Lounge attracts trendy professionals looking to wind down from work and club-goers in the mood for something different from the typical Hollywood hysteria.
Those ready to hit the town early drop by for upscale bites of wood-oven pizza and tacos or the solid Happy Hour deals like $4 beers, settling in on soft, cream-colored chairs surrounded by the warmth of exposed brick and sleek hardwood.
The quiet lounge shifts gears by 11pm, however, when it transforms into a nightclub atmosphere as lines form outside and resident DJ Sir Marcus turns up the danceable tracks.
Private parties can splurge on bottle service at long couches that surround the crackling fire pit just past the entrance, while a narrow corridor funnels fashionistas and frat guys into the bar area, where sparkling champagne and muddled cocktails await.
The small rear dance floor gets thumping fast as preppy guys and ladies dressed to the nines start to let loose, but low candlelit tables and cabana-style seating on the patio provide an almost tropical escape from the beats – though not from the crowds.
Attracting a wide range of fun lovers, 31Ten Lounge is by no means the glitziest experience in town, but it offers a welcome dollop of swank for anyone willing to don some nice threads – be they a perfect 10 or otherwise.
Trendy after-work professionals, upscale colleagues, fashionable groups of girls, Euro tourists looking to party, and anyone in need of a little club scene on the Westside, 20s to 30s.
House DJ Sir Marcus spins a mix of popular danceable beats on Fridays and Saturdays from around 10pm, with guest DJs taking on similar styles Thursday nights.
Menu of upscale bites includes tacos, wood-fired pizzas, fresh seafood, and steak dishes. ATM.
