The gang is heading over and the van cab is on its way. But what’s the game plan? Luckily, it’s not hard to come up with ideas for groups in Los Angeles.
A festive, booze-filled activity for any posse is a stop at one of the many karaoke haunts within the sprawling metropolis. At Backstage Bar & Grill in Culver City, the regulars cheer on even the worst of renditions. For a clique that wants to keep its vocal expressions within a trusted circle, there are private karaoke rooms at Soop Sok Music Studio in Koreatown.
Those seeking a dressier, lounge-like experience with a little friendly competition can head to Lucky Strike in Hollywood, which gives groups a chance to bowl in style under neon lights as techno beats roll through the speakers. For a crew that is looking to get really rowdy and possibly even a little randy, West Hollywood’s gay-hangout extraordinaire The Abbey has multiple bars, male go-go dancers, inside and outside seating, fire pits, and a ton of room for dancing.
When heading to the beach is too obvious an option, groups in Los Angeles can find plenty of other places where strength in numbers is welcome.
