One of Hollywood’s hottest clubs in the 90s, Las Palmas went through a seven-year transformation during which it was called LAX, only to reemerge with its old name and with the same notoriously difficult door policy that still attracts a discerning and trendy clientele.

The packs of paparazzi have also returned, lurking outside as tastemakers and young celebs strut their way into the vast and elegant club with a Spanish flair.

Essentially one large room divided into three distinct areas, the space includes a wood-paneled bar featuring intricate chandeliers, a pressed-tin ceiling, and a mesmerizing black-lit jellyfish tank installed in the exposed brick wall.

There are no bar stools, so patrons looking to kick back with some cocktails should make their way through the series of brick archways into the sunken dance area, where oversized banquettes provide plenty of space to mingle and watch the flirty crowd groove on the vintage Spanish tiles.

A DJ booth overseen by a brass elephant head covered in LED lights dominates one end of the room, where sweaty club kids in need of a respite from the high-energy action can slip into cozy leather booths to order bottle service and peruse the reproduction of Picasso’s Guernica.

A series of open doorways leads to an outdoor patio usually packed shoulder to shoulder with fashionable partiers looking for a cool off and a smoke.

For those whose idea of a great time is a night of hard dancing among beautiful people, Las Palmas just might become the new favorite old place.

Tip from Adriana:

Grab some friends, grab a table, and grab a bottle of Patron Platinum. Switch off between shots and shimmying to Lil Wayne all night.

Hit and Miss, But Mostly A Hit
Marc C. Feb 19, 2013
First rule of partying at Las Palmas: purchase your tickets ahead of time. Second rule of partying at Las Palmas: purchase your tickets ahead of time. Once that's taken care of, it's nearly impossible not to have a great time at this renovated club. Our (birthday) party arrived early enough that the dance floor was still visible and the bar was not four people deep. The private lounge in the back would serve great for any function and it still has access to the main area. The outdoor patio, while narrow, also offers a view of the main dance floor and entrance that is perfect for people-watching. The music (mostly hip-hop) filled the dance floor with its booming energy and the dance crowd immediately responded. Perhaps there was just too many people enjoying the music, but we found some of the booths getting in the way while making our way between the dance floor and bar. Ultimately, there was a house party vibe felt throughout the night, which capped off with an order of greasy food at the adjoining taco stand.
Absolutely depends on the night!

I have to be honest - it absolutely depends on the night! Las Palmas will either be a rage, or sadly, you'll feel like you've just stepped into a glorified Mexican Restaurant with a DJ. The nights I've partied there have been incredible (went there on my birthday last year as a matter of fact)! Then again, they were put on by Promoters who draw in a crowd naturally. Going to Las Palmas on a random night is sure to land you smack at the other end of the spectrum, that’s for sure! My rating will have to teeter somewhere in the middle, simply because it honestly depends on the night you go. But I feel like that's true with any club - you have to know what nights are jammin, and when to stay home.
Club or mexican restauraunt?

I was so terribly disappointed by this place. First of all, it was a $10 cover charge which wouldn't be too bad if that place was actually cool inside!! Maybe it was an off night, but it seriously looked like a restaurant inside. The music was was decent, but everyone was just sitting/standing on the sides and no one looked friendly. In the end, we left after 10 minutes... What a waste.
