Melding a little of the LA club scene with a laid-back Westside vibe, 31Ten Lounge attracts trendy professionals looking to wind down from work and club-goers in the mood for something different from the typical Hollywood hysteria.
Those ready to hit the town early drop by for upscale bites of wood-oven pizza and tacos or the solid Happy Hour deals like $4 beers, settling in on soft, cream-colored chairs surrounded by the warmth of exposed brick and sleek hardwood.
The quiet lounge shifts gears by 11pm, however, when it transforms into more of a nightclub atmosphere as lines form outside and resident DJ Sir Marcus turns up the toe-tapping tracks.
Private parties can splurge on bottle service at long couches that surround the crackling fire pit just past the entrance, while a narrow corridor funnels fashionistas and frat guys into the bar area, where sparkling champagne and muddled cocktails await.
The small rear area gets thumping fast as preppy guys and ladies dressed to the nines start to let loose, but low candlelit tables and cabana-style seating on the patio provide an almost tropical escape from the beats – though not from the crowds.
Attracting a wide range of fun lovers, 31Ten Lounge is by no means the glitziest experience in town, but it offers a welcome dollop of swank for anyone willing to don some nice threads – be they a perfect 10 or otherwise.
