For those who abandoned Hollywood clubs after the bro takeover, King King is the only reason to return. This long-running Hollywood haunt is small and bare-bones compared with the posh spots that surround it, but its schedule is top-notch. Programming runs the gamut from theatrical productions — we recently caught the Album Project's rock-opera re-creation of Fleetwood Mac's Rumours — to dance nights. If it's the latter you're seeking, you won't be disappointed. King King is a cornerstone of the local house scene, attracting promoters whose parties are more about the dance floor than bottle service. The hard-core will want to arrive early and practice their footwork before the headliners take the stage and the dance circles get intense. Some nights also offer discounted entry for early birds with RSVPs. Check the club's calendar for schedules.
