Going Au Naturale: Voyeur West Hollywood

Going Au Naturale: Voyeur West Hollywood

In Los Angeles, it takes a lot to shock and awe. When you walk into Voyeur on Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood, you might not be completely shocked at the almost naked women writhing on each other but you will undoubtedly be in awe. 

Voyeur is an intimate space, provocative and sexy, sophisticated and interesting. Inspired by Eyes Wide Shut and London lounge, Annabelle’s of London, Voyeur transports you to a world of risqué sexuality and eroticism.  In fact, even if you tried to escape looking at the naked women all around you, you would ultimately fail.  But then again, why would you even try?

Of course the guests are sexy, but the walls are also lined with black and white pictures of beautiful naked girls from decades past while temptresses wearing nothing more than pasties and a black thong “stretch” on tables or in large glass boxes.  Yes, the women don’t strip or show off their outdone go-go girl dance moves. Instead, they hold onto ropes on the walls and literally stretch, like yoga class but much sexier (and probably more naked).

And incase you are thinking “oh boy, ANOTHER club with glass boxes filled with naked dancing girls”, pull yourself together and tell yourself you are actually looking at history because the glass casements in Voyeur are actually windows from the old New York Times building in Manhattan, from the 1920’s.  Voyeur is less classy and classic and more classic-slutty, but we are in Los Angeles so that vibe works just fine.

Voyeur feels intimate and rich, with metal chandeliers precariously hanging above you, black leather drapery and reupholstered antique chairs that are synched like  tight corsets. Voyeur also serves hors d’oeuvres from Chef Micah Wexler (formerly of Craft) and many cocktails that are sugar-free and all organic. Cocktails like blueberry mint and shots like cucumber olive are winners, while their watermelon jalapeno cocktail should be avoided like clothing… unless you would like an up close and personal tour of Voyeur’s bathroom.
