Hollywood, Los Angeles –
Given the tough door policy, not everyone gets into The Sayers Club – and with it's semi-hidden location behind sister bar Sayers Front Room, it's not a given that clubgoers will even find it. Tucked away on a non-descript stretch of Wilcox, there’s little evidence of this swanky lounge’s existence until trendy scenesters and in-the-know music lovers start to line up outside the venue’s unmarked door.
Once cleared by the clipboard-wielding doorman, patrons discover a throwback speakeasy with exposed brick and concrete walls, lush sweeping drapes, and a long bar glowing with golden light.
Sleek tufted leather couches on the perimeter of the room face the retractable stage, where unannounced musical acts usually perform nightly – and where frequent celebrity guests just might set down their $18 cocktails long enough to accompany Macy Gray, Florence Welch, or whatever other big name has spontaneously appeared.
Performers also include less established acts, though with so many industry types in the crowd, it’s doubtful they’ll remain unknown for long.
Young entertainment industry types, celebrities, scenesters, models, and music lovers, 20s to 30s.
Live music nightly featuring unannounced musical acts that have included many big-name performers. DJs spin mostly Top 40 and hip-hop between live sessions.
No food. No cover charge, but getting on the guest list requires at least knowing someone who knows someone. Entrance located in the back of Sayers Front Room.
Beer $8–$12, wine $14–$17/glass or $100–$650/bottle, cocktails $13–$15, specialty cocktails $18, bottle service $400–$2500 (two-bottle minimum often required).
Dress to impress: slacks, sports coats, button-downs, designer jackets, tight dresses, heels.
The venue is consistently packed, so any night potential visitors can get on the list.
