Party Earth Hyde Lounge (West Hollywood) Review

Looking for info on Hyde Lounge in West Hollywood, CA? Check out Party Earth for reviews, photos, and more for this one-of-a-kind WeHo club!

The Hyde brand has always been a mark of exclusivity, and the newly redesigned Hyde Lounge doesn’t buck that trend.

A small club with a big following, the venue is usually besieged by paparazzi who huddle outside waiting to photograph celebrities as they come and go, and the strength of the velvet rope might as well be kryptonite for anyone not pretty enough, wealthy enough, or in-the-know enough to get in.

Those who do make the grade will find themselves in a sea of young Hollywood tastemakers, ready to hit the wood dance floor with top-shelf alcohol in hand as celebrity DJs spin loud Top 40.

Backlit swaths of fabric turn the walls into glowing pillows, which contrast with dark metal lanterns and exposed beams, and cast their light on the bustling waitresses in sexy tuxedo outfits.

Actors, dapper fashion executives, and assorted financial fat cats relax in dark booths and on embossed crocodile leather banquettes, duly attended to by mixologists ready to prepare drinks right at the table, while table-less patrons schlep to the mirrored marble bar in the back.

Those who need a smoke can head upstairs and through the narrow hallway covered in geometric art, which leads to a tiny outdoor area full of scenesters and A-listers making small talk in the smoky haze.

The very definition of exclusive, Hyde Lounge is the place for LA’s elite to let their perfectly coiffed hair down.

Tip from Adriana:

Dinner is only served from 6 to 10pm, but the menu was created by the same master chef behind Katsuya Hollywood. It’s worth heading in early for a bite.

  • Crowd

    Young Hollywood professionals, A-listers, celebrities, models, and scenesters, 20s to late 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    DJs spin mostly Top 40, alt hits, and old-school rap.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Small but diverse dinner menu including appetizers, cheese plates, sandwiches, meat dishes, fruit dishes, and desserts.

  • Prices

    Appetizers $9, cheese plates $12, sandwiches $9–$12, fruit dishes $12–$14, meat dishes $14–$20, desserts $12–$14. Beer $8–$9, wine $12–$15, signature cocktails $12–$18+, bottle service $400–$2800. Valet $15–$20.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Dress to impress: button-downs, slacks, leather jackets, skinny jeans, cocktail dresses, heels.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    The venue is consistently packed, so any night promises celebrity sightings and a posh crowd, though Wednesdays are often the easiest nights for mere mortals to gain access.

  • Close By

    Equally exclusive as Hyde, Chateau Marmont is a great pre-game spot for dinner and drinks and boasts a see-and-be-seen crowd in addition to some pretty heavy Hollywood history.

I have a strong passion for hip hop and when I found out my favorite DJ from Power 106 had residency there on Mondays, it was over. The only reason I knew this place existed is through a promoter, he usually gets me in no problem, minus one time I showed up with a guy in my group, gotta love Hollywood. It seems this place is pretty exclusive, and have always wondered how much it is to get in if you didn't know anyone- if that was even possible. The venue itself is tiny, I was blown away my first time. There is a bar in the back, with 6 tables along the perimeter, and a tiny dance floor in between. The DJ booth is also posted right in the middle, keeping it intimidate with the crowd. I would say the crowd doesn't get going until around midnight or 12:30, first-timers probably arrive way too early and wonder where everyone is. Bottles are constantly being opened all night (by an attractive staff). Monday nights always consists of hip hop DJs who play the hottest tracks that are currently out. I hear a lot of celebrities ending up here. One time Young Jeezy was at a table 5 feet away from us, pretty epic to be at the same spot these artists are spending their time. All in all, I love ending my Monday nights here. Heck, if it was Saturday night, I'd still come. Ps parking on Sunset can be a hassle, valet for 15 dollars and you're golden.
small space, BIG fun

This dark and cozy setting has gone through changes over the years, each one better than the last. What HYDE lacks in space and maneuverability, easily makes up with great music, positive vibes, and bottle service :) Whether you love House or Hip Hop music, this place tends to cater to both genres with an assortment of top 40 hits. With padded walls and comfortable nooks for bottle service, much of the floor space is dedicated to these areas making it fun for a group of friends/ business partners. Be sure make your way up the stairs to the outside patio area for chatting and having a smoke. If you're worried about bumping into people, this is not the place for you. But if you don't mind intimacy and spending a little cash, you can have just as much fun here as any lounge/club in Hollywood!
Not a must

I have been to HYDE a few times and I don't love the vibe. I am not sure if it is different on other nights but when I have gone i havent had the best time. The venue is cool in side, however it is very small. They are also not known for having great DJs so don't go there for only the music. It is more about the people you go with rather the people that you meet there. I would recommend this spot for more hipster types. Overall you should definitely check it out for yourself and see if you fit in there.
Small but fun

i went to Hyde this past sunday for their House sunday night. This club is MUCH smaller than most of the big places I am used to going in Hollywood. There were probably only 6 tables and a very small dance floor with a small bar in the back. Although it was small I still had a really good time. The DJ was pretty good and the guys that controlled the lights even let me mess with them a little. A lot of the people there were older than my usual crowd but I still found a table of people i liked. Overall it was a good time and I would recommend it especially if you don't have anything else to do some night but still want to go out!
Hip Crowds, Great Location, Shitty DJs

Being from the Westside, Hyde is a much more attractive destination for a cab ride out to Hollywood than the clubs and lounges further towards Hollywood and Vine. Wednesday nights are their industry night, which I highly recommend over the overcrowded weekend warrior vibes on Friday and Saturday. A friend of mine seems to always know someone with bottle service here on Wednesday's, so we always have a good time living the high life when we go. The drinks at the bar are extremely expensive, and I wouldn't buy more than one if I didn't have to (pregame hard if you don't have bottle service). The inside is intimate, with bottle service booths lining the walls, A DJ podium stuffed between them, and a small dance floor that turns on later into the night. There's an upstairs smoking lounge which can be a chill place to hang out and meet people if you don't mind the smoke. The one downside about this place is that the Dj's typically aren't that progressive, so if you like your typical top-40 music, you probably won't have any complaints. Overall, the simultaneously uber-hip/ultra-endowed patrons make for an interesting atmosphere that is both laid-back and decadent.
Small, Dark, Intimate

Super small venue with a very interesting vibe. It's extremely narrow and can get wayy too crowded. With the right amount of people, it's so much fun. I didn't pay last time because we went with a group but I've heard the prices are just ridiculous. Wouldn't necessarily recommend this club over others in Hollywood.
Dark, loud, crowded, overpriced

This place is not my scene but I went for a friend’s birthday that came to visit from Chicago and had wanted to check out Hyde. It was shockingly small! You walk in the door and BAM you are on the dance floor, you literally have to force you're way through the drunk mess of bump and grinders to get a drink at the only bar they have in the back. Oh and you'll be paying out the ass for that drink too. We ordered a Ketel soda, Ketel tonic, and an Amaretto OJ for a total of $46. YIKES! Its super dark and the DJ booth is located right on the dance floor which makes it tight and super awkward. The tables line the walls of the bar but are also on top of the dance floor so I can't imagine that being comfortable. I checked out the bottle pricing list for shi*s and giggles and let me tell you I giggled! The prices were super outrageous! I don’t do the bottle service thing normally but I have done it in Vegas a few times and these prices were about double what I've ever paid. I had fun during my hour there drinking my 1 overpriced drink and shaking my ass into others on the dance floor but once was enough for me.
