Can’t keep up with what’s going on in the nightlife and restaurant world? Here’s a quick tip sheet to the hottest spots in town.
The spot: Nightingale, SBE’s newest addition to Hollywood nightlife. Housed in the former home of Greystone Manor, the club is the newest hot spot in West Hollywood’s ever-growing arsenal.
The boldfacers: Michael B. Jordan, Ryan Lochte, Alessandra Ambrosio.
The decor: The Rockwell Group (The Time Hotel, Nobu Hotel Miami Beach, NeueHouse) rooted their design concept in a modern re-imagining of a European courtyard.
Signature cocktails: Tequila Mockingbird (Avion, lime juice, honey), Kentucky Mule (Jameson, ginger syrup, lime juice, soda, bitters), and our personal favorite, the Smart Blonde (Absolut Citron, St. Germain, Limoncello, lemon juice, simple syrup).
Why it’s cool: From the kinetic ceiling covered in revolving mirrored panels, to the LED walls, tech meets nightlife in this space. The most Instagrammable feature is the Rockwell Group-designed wallpaper, inspired by exotic foliage and magical surrealism. Plus, there’s a photo booth, lined in the wallpaper, that can easily fit eight-plus people. But have a game plan upon entering, because mastering the boomerang-like gif setup can take a minute. It’s only a matter of time before Nightingale gains mention in a hip-hop song, just like Drake and the Game did for its predecessor, Greystone Manor.
Nightingale, 643 N. La Cienega Boulevard, Los Angeles, Calif., 90069.
