L.A. Nightlife: The 7 Best Bars to Hit Now

by Audrey Davidow

Bardot

Bardot is a swank bar/courtyard/tented lounge done up with old-school oil paintings, crystal chandeliers, and plenty of cozy conversation nooks. Start in the low-lit bar area, a golden-hued lounge with tufted banquettes and mosaic mirrors, before making your way to the always packed dance floor, where a mix of club kids and young Hollywood (Jessica Alba, Natalie Portman, and Paris Hilton have been spotted here, to name a few) bump elbows—and other assorted body parts—to a high-energy mix of Motown, electro, and indie beats. Downstairs is a crimson-tented patio where a rotating mix of live acts—burlesque dancers, jazz musicians, indie darlings—take the stage for intimate, salon-scale performances. For the best seat in the house, spring for bottle service (a mere $400!) at one of the patio tables. Bardot is certainly a scene, and the door can be tough, but unlike other insider-y spots around town, the vibe inside is surprisingly laid-back. Best bet for easy access? Make reservations for a late small-plates dinner then stay on for the show.
