Three Clubs Cocktail Lounge | Hollywood | Bars and Clubs, Music Venues | Music

The "Bargain Clown Mart" sign that used to hang above this dive-ish fave (as seen in the indie film Swingers) is missed, but the Three Clubs (no "of" in the name!) still has an ironic-cool exterior (it was one of first to forgo signage in Hollywood) and it's in a mini-mall. Its notable darkness, diverse DJs and band bookings, and laid-back crowd make it an edgy alternative to other hangouts on Vine, especially those nearer to Hollywood Blvd. You never know what you might find here, and often the scenes are different depending on which part of the place you plant yourself in. The low-lit front area of the bar, with its firm leather booths, long wooden bar and jukebox, is often host to date nights and serious drinkers. While the adjacent performance room behind swinging doors to the left is more club-like with everything from rock bands to burlesque dance nights filling the floor with gussied up girls and guys (the 60's dance parties are especially groovy). Club promotions here are almost always free, as is parking in the mini-mall lot.

And in recent years, as the American palate has gone more in the direction of bitter cocktails, the Campari-laced drink has enjoyed a rise in prominence. But...
