Cindy Club

4273 Beverly Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90004
323-906-1640
Best Of
If you've never noticed the Cindy Club before, it might be because it sits behind a couple of bushy trees on a humdrum stretch of Beverly Boulevard that's not quite Koreatown, not quite East Hollywood. Or maybe it's because owner Nongnuch "Candy" Phimmasone wants it that way. Cindy Club is a classic hostess bar, a largely cultural affair that connects lonely businessmen and low-key locals with bubbly, chatty women that certainly seem interested in you, but are likely eyeing your wallet. Not that this is an expensive hostess bar; the $8 beers and sub-$10 sakes (no hard alcohol is served) are a fraction of what patrons pay elsewhere in Koreatown. If anything, the dingy but expansive space is oddly comfortable, with plates of simple Thai food emerging from the kitchen just long enough to keep you in your $25-an-hour booth.
