Plain and simple, the nightlife situation currently going down at Clifton’s is on a different level than anyone else. Ignore the subpar cafeteria on the main floor, and head up the staircase to discover a multi-level (and multi-bar) drunken extravaganza. Think jazz bands, swing dancing, aggressive taxidermy, and a hidden tiki bar speakeasy on the top floor. If you want to know where all of LA is on a Saturday night, look no further than Clifton’s.
