Hollywood, Los Angeles –
Despite efforts to stay off the radar, Agency’s reputation for unannounced DJ sets that rival the lineups of much bigger Hollywood clubs has made it a sought-after destination for music-loving socialites who want an intimate club experience that still packs a serious punch.
Uninformed clubbers curiously eye the ultra-exclusive line as they step toward the looser doors of the Vanguard nightclub on the building’s first floor, while tuxedoed bouncers wave the in-the-know industry players and trendsetters through Agency’s nondescript façade.
Once inside, patrons ascend a red-hued staircase into a boutique space pounding with house music, while vogue bodies pile into suede booths for bottle service or congregate around the mirror-backed golden bar towards the rear.
Subdued chandeliers, rich velvet drapes, and cocktail waitresses in risqué corsets create a decadent cabaret show atmosphere, but the biggest eye candy is the colossal DJ podium and wall-sized LED screen that stands as the altar in this ornate chapel to progressive music. A regular draw of A-list DJs and surprise performances transforms any space between booths into a hedonistic dance floor, while packs of fashionistas gyrate on ledges along the walls.
As the staff carries out more flaming bottles of Dom, hip youngsters can retreat to the back patio for a smoke and conversation amid the abstract art and wood-framed sofas.
In the age where DJ is king, Agency has found itself sitting on the iron throne by combining upscale glamour with an underground haven for the town’s hottest artists.
Ultra trendy and attractive young professionals, stunning models, hipster musicians, up-and-coming Hollywood players, and trust-funders, early 20s to late 30s.
Hard-hitting house music from the EAW sound system and wall-sized LED screen behind the DJ podium, and hip-hop all night on the monthly Wednesday events.
Full kitchen available for private events, private lounge available for bottle service requests. Valet parking. Bottle service.
Bottled beer $9, cocktails $11–$20. Bottle service $350–$7,000. Valet $20 next door.
Trendy club wear: collars, hipster t-shirts, tailored suits without ties, designer dresses, short skirts, colorful heels, bedazzled accessories, and Top Shop brands.
Select Tuesdays for industry nights with unannounced house music sets from A-list DJs, select Wednesday nights for hip-hop, and every Friday and Saturday for a more diverse crowd of clubbers and a slightly looser door.
Hemingway’s (6356 Hollywood Boulevard) is an ultrachic lounge that serves perfect pre-club cocktails to a similarly hip and upscale clientele.
