The Sayers Club

1645 Wilcox Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90028
The Sayers Club — a relaxed yet elegant hangout essentially hidden behind the Papaya King hot dog stand on Wilcox in Hollywood — attracts a shockingly un-douchey crowd. Credit has to go to the club's conceptual creator and music curator, Jason Scoppa, who also helped turn Bardot above the Avalon into a first-rate spot. But Sayers has a spontaneity and star power that already outshines his previous efforts. Though most nights talented unknowns perform cover hits, surprise big names often take the stage, too, like Prince, Gotye, Nelly Furtado, Sheila E, Questlove and American Idol winner Kris Allen. Even folks like Kristen Stewart and Joseph Gordon-Levitt will join in the party. Ultimately, Sayers is fueled by a love of music, which is why it stays as hot as the dogs that hide its digs.
