Get Social: Social Hollywood Los Angeles

Get Social: Social Hollywood Los Angeles

Club hookups happening in sleek nightlife settings, where guys sip gold label whiskey glancing at girls sipping martinis, are not pure clubbing fantasy created by the producers of "Sex and the City." Nothing enhances mingling better than a chic, trendy décor of a popular Los Angeles lounge joined with a creative cocktail menu, exclusivity and a bunch of young Californian socialites sporting Vogue-wear. The spirit of celebrity exposure will always haunt the swanky darkness and vast spaces of Social Hollywood, the top star hangout and exclusive club in Los Angeles, as it is often the case with places that have their own—long and sultry— nightlife history. But it doesn’t happen often that a sleek lounge can boast a track record of celebrities like Charlie Chaplin, Rudolph Valentino, or Cecil B. DeMaille once being all regulars. Even if it was during the time when Social Hollywood was still Hollywood Athletic Club.

Jeffrey Chodorow (the mastermind behind New York’s top hotspots -- China Grill and Asia de Cuba, as well as Social Miami) restored Social Hollywood to its contemporary glory for a trifle-of-a-cost of over $15 million. No wonder it’s a hassle to get on the exclusive and celebrity-studded guest list of one of the club’s upscale lounges. Can you smell that elusive aroma in the air? That’s not the chestnut soup (though it might be as well); that’s the scent of a heavy buck, and not only one that was loaded into the posh interiors of seven swanky  rooms of Social Hollywood, but that was attracted by the high-exclusivity and high-quality of nightlife entertainment at this popular nightclub. Yep, bucks feel attracted to bucks and want to mingle, drink and dance with bucks. It shouldn’t come as a surprise then that you can spend as much as $500 on a bottle of excellent champagne and none of other classy patrons at Social Hollywood will even blink.

Contemporary popular celebs are drawn to Citrus, the restaurant part of this Los Angeles hideout of the famous; offering high-end California-French menu fixed by famous Chefs worthy of a famous hotspot—Michel Richard and Omri Afalo. Though a dinner is—once again— quite a splurge, you never know who might be occupying the next table. Socializing with the cream-of-the-crop is worth the buck, especially since you get to enter one of Los Angeles’ hottest clubs.

The upper level of Social Hollywood is divided into three upscale and highly exclusive lounges. And we mean highly exclusive. It’s not enough to be young and beautiful, not even—as a matter of fact—to be able to pay through the nose. To get into the sleek and intimate nightlife hangouts like the velvet room, and to be able to mingle with Los Angeles’ top notch socialites, you have to get onto the list put together by the staff, or be a member of this non-populist... social club.?

The slightly less exclusive—though still reservations-only— downstairs lounge and bar offer a Moroccan menu of yummy bar snacks and an intimate, sexy ambience; creating a posh environment perfect for private events (with an excellent event-catering menu). So stop whining about the recession and join the Hollywood nightlife scene at one of the best and most famous nightclubs in Los Angeles, Social Hollywood.
