hello,
I am going to LA in the summer with 2 friends, we are 19 years old, and want to know if we will be able to get into nightclubs.
I know that at most places you must be 21 years old in order to get inside, but I heared that their also clubs for our ages...

thank you

Fake IDs?

There used to be a place in La Habra called Good Time Phosters. This was in the late 1970s, when I was under 21.

For regular under 21 admittance you're limited to the usual suspects, like House of Blues or Knitting Factory. But a lot of the clubs have specific 18+ nights during the week, or special event nights. I think the Echo does. Maybe Spaceland too? I think there's actually a lot of options; it's just been so long since I've had to worry about it! Pick up the LA Weekly when you're in town; I'm pretty sure the clubs' print ads post age restrictions for any particular gig. I know my nieces go to a place in West Hollywood--is it Rage?--for DJ'ing and it's a more mellow night (not too high energy, I think more ambient (and generally you've gotta be gay friendly)).

In sum, it's mostly a 21+ town. Regular underage clubs are slim pickings, but certain days at certain clubs all around the area allow 18+, so it becomes a matter of your own music/DJ/atmosphere predilections.

Theres SEVERAL clubs around L.A. that are 18 and over. Do some research. Many clubs that are 21+ host 18+ events sometimes.
DV8
Element
Cinespace are all 18+ in Hollywood from the top of my head.

Just so the original poster knows, while I have heard nothing but good things about Rage, I am almost sure its a gay club. Nothing wrong with it. But I dont know if the original poster is gay.

Yeah, I know Rage is gay, but I can't remember where my nieces used to go. Maybe that's not the name. It could be Spundae instead. In fact, I think that's what it is, actually. Sorry! I know it was in West Hollywood and all I could think of was Rage because I know they've got an 18+ night too and that it attracts not only a gay crowd. (So Rage is still on the table, provided that's understood...) And, again, you'll have to confirm the night you want to attend is 18+.

As I understand it (and as sad as it is since I am moving to the West LA area soon), the clubs in West Hollywood are either really lame, or highly expensive and exclusive. As for gay clubs, the only places that have been recommended to me are Rage and The Abbey. But even then, I hear The Abbey is pricey. And that straight clubs, its "happening" at Hyde Lounge and Area. However, there it is either $25 drinks and standing room, or bottle service with a table (which at the least is $300 a bottle). Thats all if you can get through the door.

So yeah, its going to be rough when it comes to mainstream entertainment industry networking and finding friends / dates. But if its this rough and Im over 21, I cant imagine how hard it would be for a much younger individual. Like we said, Rage catters to a young crowd, but maybe your best bet is to get a fake ID and / or just make friends with Hollywood promoters and DJs.
