The Best Places to Go Dancing in Los Angeles

LA may be known for its sunshine, but there’s plenty going on after dark too—if you know where to look.

After posting about the bars and clubs with the best dancefloors in New York, we knew we had to follow suit with a round-up of the spots where Los Angeles-based passersby go to get down. Regardless of their neighborhood, there was a definite air of Hollywood glamour in their recommendations. Rich colors and old school lounge-y vibes prevail, while themes like "vintage airport bar" and a club inside a historic former bank (complete with its original money vault) prove that the nightlife scene in LA takes creativity seriously. Click through the slideshow to see all the recommendations, and let us know where you go to show off your dance moves, from West Hollywood to Silver Lake.
