Partying in Downtown Los Angeles: The hidden gems of DTLA scene

Do you ever find yourself wondering what to do or where to go on a night out in Downtown LA? Well, I can tell you this much… if it’s on a Saturday night obviously the Los Angeles Club Crawl! But I will still go ahead and tell you some hidden gems of the nightlife scene.

One Hotspot I always like to mention is The Reserve. This former bank vault has revamped itself into a top desired Los Angeles nightclub. Still dressed as a bank vault, this venue always supplies the party. On the weekends this nightclub routinely hits capacity before midnight, hosting a multi-room, multi-DJ party! Easily a DTLA must.

If you are looking to avoid the nightclub vibe, Adelitas Cantina is a nice little tucked away venue. The visually appetizing and colorful vibe of the establishment is second to none, oh and don’t forget to try the delicious margaritas. This bar is small in size but big in party when you find yourself peeking in at a good time. Our 4th of July Bar Crawl stopped by this place and it did not let us down. If you are in Downtown LA, grab some margaritas at Adelitas.

Lastly on my list is El Dorado. This beautiful wood-lined venue is the perfect home for your next drink in DTLA. On the weekends this underground venue changes its title from bar to nightclub, hosting hip hop nights and rockin’ out the tunes. Finding yourself at El Dorado is never a bad thing, highly recommended.

Stop into these venues… embrace the Downtown Los Angeles nightlife scene! And when you do, you’ll think back to this moment and be like “oh that amazing blog I read told me about this place”. BUT…. If you go there and have a bad time, don’t remember this article. Cheers to DTLA!
