Hollywood, Los Angeles –
Marked by a light blue lifeguard tower, The Colony is an immense indoor/outdoor club that brings a swanky Hamptons vibe to Hollywood.
Fashionable guests who make it past the exclusive door are led up a sandy plank boardwalk and into a playful nautically-themed space featuring walls painted with waves, a shallow pool covered by swinging hammocks, and kitschy boat-shaped lounge chairs where good-looking club kids sprawl to take a break from the venue’s non-stop energy.
A suspended kayak, oversized wood shutters, and striped upholstered couches and booths complete the seaside look, while tons of café tables offer plenty of space for the bottle service crowd to enjoy their expensive cocktails.
Covered only by a wooden pergola, the outdoor area features a cement bar and additional “island” seating around the pool, and is the go-to place for mingling with the other gorgeous patrons or just enjoying a cool breeze or a smoke.
Those in the mood to dance need only step into the multi-tiered indoor area, where DJs get the pampered in-crowd on its feet not only on the sizable dance floor, but on every available surface – including around the built-in stripper poles on the little stages behind the booths.
An impressive lighting system and the requisite disco ball set a festive mood, though the sexy young clientele hardly needs help in that department. In fact, anyone in search of an exclusive, buzzing party scene with an attractive and affluent crowd – all wrapped up in an irresistibly alluring atmosphere – will definitely find it at The Colony.
A hedonistic group of pampered club kids, showbiz types, celebrities, and the in-crowd, early 20s to early 30s.
Skilled DJs mash up hip-hop, top 40, and electronic.
Small boutique next to the restrooms sells beach essentials like cigarettes, sandals, scarves, and jewelry, and has VIP storage lockers available for big spenders.
Beer $8+, wine $10+, cocktails $12+, bottle service $395+. Valet $10.
Dressy club attire: designer dresses and heels for girls, fashionable jeans, button-downs, and even blazers for guys.
Any night. Fridays draw a more high-profile crowd, but it’s more difficult to get in.
Las Palmas (1714 North Las Palmas Avenue) is a club open on the same nights as The Colony that caters to the same young Hollywood set.
