Party Earth Hyde Lounge at Staples Center Review

The Scene

Although the Staples Center is best known for hosting mega concerts and Lakers basketball games, hidden away inside this multi-purpose arena is an exclusive hotspot called Hyde Lounge.

Although the Staples Center is best known for hosting mega concerts and Lakers basketball games, hidden away inside this multi-purpose arena is an exclusive hotspot called Hyde Lounge.

Scenesters, celebrities, and industry bigwigs head up via a special elevator, eventually entering a room that looks more like a ritzy nightclub than a place to catch the game.

Regular patrons of Hyde’s sister location in West Hollywood are used to the luxury, while first-time visitors pause to gawk at the rosewood walls, the crocodile-skin bar tops, and the tufted leather chairs arranged around glass tables and floating flat-screens.

The TVs are all tuned to the action on the court below, while rows of cushioned stadium seats and bottle service-only couches attract those in the mood for a more traditional viewing experience.

Perfectly coifed dudes in their Christian Audigier best sling back craft beers at the bar, or snack on gourmet salads and sandwiches worlds apart from traditional stadium grub.

Curtains separate the main area from the VIP room, where models and stars relax on a massive couch dotted with fur pillows, glued to the enormous TV that looms over the crackling fireplace.

Before and after an event at the arena, DJs back in the main room usually help turn the venue into a hopping little club, but no matter what visitors come to see at the Staples Center, the hottest scene will always be at Hyde Lounge.

Tip from Adriana:

Need some fresh air or maybe just a great view? Head up to the rooftop patio, where tables and chairs are set up right behind the massive Staples Center sign.

  • Crowd

    Models, scenesters, moneyed sports fans, celebrities, socialites, Hollywood industry fat cats, and Hollywood wannabe kittens, 20s to 30s+.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Several flat-screens show the action on the court/rink/stage below. DJs spin mostly hip-hop and Top 40 before and after most events.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Upscale American cuisine including sandwiches, salads, and buffalo wings.

  • Prices

    Cover charge $0–$25+, varies per event/guest list required. Appetizers $8–$15, entrées $18–$45. Beer $8, wine $12, champagne $12, cocktails $15–$18, bottle service $375–$10,000.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Dress to impress: designer jeans, collared shirts, lots of Audigier, slacks, sexy minis, heels. Typical sports attire won’t fly at the Hyde unless it’s being worn by Jack Nicholson.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    During Lakers games or big concerts to party with an A-list crowd, or during lesser-known events for easier access to the glitz.

  • Close By

    The surrounding LA Live entertainment complex is home to a vast range of sports bars, casual restaurants, upscale dining establishments, theaters, bars, clubs, and live music venues.

Hollywood Hipster Meets Downtown Chic: A Date Night To Remember!
Cristina B. May 16, 2013
Hyde Lounge at Staples Center is the ultimate sophisticated and luxurious date spot -- if you are willing to woo your date, dress to the nines and take the game experience to the next level then this is the place for you. Attendees enter from the VIP entrance and are taken up to floor C via a separate elevator, then guided through the San Manuel area -- of course, 21+ to enter and an exclusive getaway for those in the know! The rich leather, dim lighting, dark wood and super plush and comfy seats set the mood for an unwinding and memorable night. This hotpot is not cheap, but you get the VIP service you pay for. The bar is fully stocked-- everything from beer to rose ace of spades is available at your request without the long lines. The food is tasty and they have a good reputation for their zesty wings, chicken lettuce wraps and crunchy nachos -- without a doubt, a step-up from the stadium food. If you really want to impress your date you can choose to sit in the box seats (with a minimum purchase) and the angle view will make you feel as if you are rubbing elbows with top A celebrities in the 100s section. However, during halftime and post game you can enjoy the club atmosphere with a live DJ spinning the hottest club beats to satisfy your happy feet. Hyde Lounge will fulfill your Hollywood hipster edge and get you in touch with your downtown swag that will serve to impress your date and have him/her craving more.
