What: No Jealousy
For: Ages 21+
We spent an end-of-the-year Staycation in Hollywood this past weekend, and I came across No Jealousy when I was looking for brunch places. I had two requirements when looking for brunch places: good food and good music. We ended up coming to No Jealousy and staying four hours until it transformed from a posh brunch spot into a full-fledged day club.
No Jealousy is located behind Sound Nightclub off of Las Palmas and Hollywood Blvd in the heart of Hollywood. The entry is in the parking lot behind Sound, and the venue opens at 1:30pm for brunch every Sunday and closes at 7:00pm. The line and wait can get pretty long, so make sure to come early and try to either call or e-mail the venue for reservations (make sure to tell them which day and time you’d like to come and that you’ll be staying for both brunch and the day club. There was an $80.00 minimum per person when we went, and they check ID’s at the door. Although we paid $160.00 to get in, all of the charges are applied to the food and drinks you order, which isn’t such a bad deal.
We were seated at a posh two top table with white table cloth in the middle of the venue. There were many tables set up, and it included booths on the sides of the venue for larger parties.Ethan ordered the steak and eggs while I ordered the prosciutto eggs benedict with potato fries. We also started with a tuna tartare appetizer. All of the food came out quickly and filled us up nicely. It was surprisingly well done and tasted great. Expect to spend about $30 to $40 per person when eating brunch, and remember that there is already a 20% gratuity included on the bill, so there’s no requirement for additional tips.
For drinks, I had to order the famous Baby Bottle drink that came out in…you guessed it…an actual baby bottle. Drinks were poured heavily, and there were a lot of novelty drinks to choose from. Bottle service is available and includes waitresses with sparklers that come out and drink. One of the most amazing drinks we saw was a punch bowl that was about six liters of alcohol and mixers with eight drink straws for large groups. Drinks run about $15, with novelty drinks costing more.
We were only allowed to sit at our table while brunching and then had to give it up for further reservations. There is a bar area with ample seating at and around the bar that patrons can go to after eating.
The Day Club
The day club is where No Jealousy gets very interesting. When you walk in earlier, there was a DJ spinning house music and Top 40. Around 3:30pm is when things really get going. The club switched DJs and had girls in angel costumes with wings dancing on tables while live musicians playing the drums and saxophone walked around the venue and played for guests. It felt like a nightclub and was interesting because people were still sitting at their tables and taking a few bites of food before standing up and dancing with the crowd.
There is an outdoor smoking area where patrons can also go if they want a little break from the noise. The venue is decorated very nicely and seemed high class, with faux flower walls and vines winding around the walls and leather couches for sitting.
The crowd was exactly like a crowd that you would expect to see at a nightclub. Everyone was dressed nicely, and most of the girls wore cocktail dresses and heels. Since we didn’t know we would be coming to a day club I was dressed down and in sneakers, but no body seemed to mind since they were all having a great time. The good thing is that since it’s during the day there aren’t many drunk people walking around…which is a plus for me!
As I said before, please remember that gratuity is included. We definitely used up our $160.00 minimum fee and ended up spending about $275.00 total during our stay at No Jealousy.
