Description

LA Weekly's Description

Just when you thought they couldn't possibly squeeze another nightclub onto the Walk of Fame, this big and beauteous boîte from restaurateur Mike Viscuso (the king of San Diego's Gaslamp District) has transformed the old Frederick's of Hollywood building (Kress department store before that) into a flamboyant five-story funhouse. Asiana-meets-mod décor and a blend of grandiosity and ambiance that recall Vegas' priciest dance palaces make this marvelous monstrosity a must-see. Scrumptious bites and sensuously named signature drinks (love "The Lovely") are served in the majestic red glow of the main dining room; the people (females) get prettier with each advancing level, culminating on the much-buzzed-about rooftop, where one is bombarded with the three B's (big boobies, blondes and bottle service). Seriously, though, the roof is the closest thing you'll get to dancing in heaven, but don't count on seeing it if you aren't loaded or luscious. We hear there's a three-bottle minimum for tables and you gotta score a coveted colored wristband to enter. Even without the roof, patrons will be busy. The basement houses a pumping dance club, while the third-floor lounge features a quieter, more intimate dance floor. The second floor has private dining areas (for celebs, natch) and a full sushi bar. Things to note: Making a reservation for dinner doesn't guarantee club entry unless you have a large party. If you're a nobody, prepare to wait at the velvet ropes in the back of the building for a while, especially if you're a dude. This one's actually worth it, though.

    Of the go-big-or-go-home aesthetic is Hollywood's nightlife emporium the Kress, in the old Frederick's of Hollywood space. Talk about a transformation. We had no idea the building was even that big. This new multistory entertainment complex has an opulent Vegas feel, with giant fixtures and statues in the main dining area, a modern sushi bar upstairs, a sexy blue-hued lounge and... More >>
