One Night in LA, 11 Lads, Where to go

There will be eleven of us all around 30 years old heading into LA on October 1st. We are staying in an airport hotel and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to where we could go that night. Thinking Bars Clubs etc. We get into LAX about 6 30 pm. We would be happy to travel by taxi for about 20 mins / 30 max.

Any suggestions.

I know its not exactly perfect but at least you'll all get in, the drinks are decent and the music isn't that bad. loads of drunk chicks also. about 40mins from the airport

Are you only staying 1 night? There's nothing to do around the airport, you'll have to cab it to nightlife. I suggest Santa Monica since it's the closest of the options. The airport is near nothing of interest.

No reason to stay near the airport unless you have an early flight out the next morning. Nothing to do there.

Definitely head to Venice or SAnta Monica. A taxi is about $15 to Abbot Kinney. Head to Otheroom first, then walk down to The Brig - both on Abbot Kinney and really fun.

Or, head to the area around the Pier where there are many bars along Ocean Avenue, and surrounding. The Bungalow is really the number one place to go, it's at the Fairmont hotel on Wilshire and Ocean - lines start at about 8, but they open at 5. If you go there, you won't want to go anywhere else, but if you do, you can walk to the Penthouse at the Huntley, or the King's Head, or Copa de Oro (google them).

Another idea is to head to Main Street - bars like O'Briens, 3110, Chaya Venice, Circle Bar and more - one after the other all on one short street.

We are staying at the airport because we have to pick our cars up early the next morning from there. We are happy to take a taxi to wherever.

I should have said that it is a Wednesday night. Will these places still be busy on a Wednesday.

Thanks a lot

Hermosa Beach is a quick taxi ride south from LAX. There are a number of Bars and restaurants at the Hermosa Plaza, a block long street in front of the Pier, closed to cars, and Hermosa Ave.


Taxi's are lined up at a cab stand on Hermosa Ave. to return you to your airport hotel.
