Hollywood, Los Angeles –
Situated just above the immense Avalon club, the versatile Bardot is a seductive Hollywood mainstay that attracts a blend of funky artists, hipsters, and club kids.
Comprised of three separate areas decked out in 1920s splendor, the space features an intimate outdoor terrace where guests lounge on banquettes among the ficus trees and oil paintings, as well as a small bar room with gold-framed mirrors and a billowy striped curtain tumbling down tent-like from the chandelier.
A set of stairs leads to another comfy lounge where patrons relax on yellow Chesterfield couches before hitting the lively dance floor.
A diverse roster of live music, burlesque, magic, and sporadic acts means the place packs in a different crowd every night, from the baggy jeans and hoodie set to upbeat gay clubbers.
Although entertainment on the intimate stage can alternate between burlesque shows, DJs spinning European techno, 80s cover bands, and bigger-name acts like Prince or will.i.am, the jam sessions on Saturdays are the biggest draw for in-crowd hipsters and their entourages
Regardless of the night, the party continues once the show ends, as the electrified audience lingers over drinks at the bar and dance fiends make their way to the upstairs lounge, where pounding beats from the DJ keep them rocking till closing time.
The hip clientele, live music, and sometimes unusual acts and theme nights make Bardot a diverse and stimulating alternative to the typical club experience.
Varies depending on theme, though generally a funky, hip clientele, 20s and 30s.
DJs nightly. Theme nights include School Night for progressive new danceable music on Mondays; Mr. Black gay night on Tuesdays; La Boum for occasional live performances on Wednesdays; Club Night burlesque shows on Fridays; and Bardot Sessions for impromptu jam sessions and cover songs on Saturdays.
Cover charge $10. Beer $7+, wine $12, mixed drinks $11+, bottle service $300+. Valet $10+.
Casual to trendy: jeans, button-downs, fashionable t-shirts, suspenders, vests, hats, slacks, vintage dresses. Club gear on Fridays: baggy jeans, t-shirts, baseball caps, hoodies.
Any night there’s an act or theme of interest, though particularly hot on Fridays and Saturdays.
Avalon (1735 North Vine Street) is a live music venue during the week and a disco on weekends.
