When Ethan and I went to Hollywood for our staycation, we decided to end our night dancing at Boulevard3. A random note about the club is that Ethan and I have been binge watching Shameless on Netflix, and Fiona’s nightclub in Season 2 is filmed at Boulevard3!
Boulevard3 was built on the site of the former Hollywood Athletic Club. When you walk into the outdoor space after paying your entrance fee, you are greeted with posh décor and modern furniture. There is a bar outside with seating Garden Cabanas that offer bottle service. A large fireplace is in the center of the outdoor Promenade. A large pool spans the length of the garden cabanas. When you enter the building, there is another fireplace with a large seating area to take a rest from all the dancing.
In the Ballroom, everything is white and backlit in neon colors, which makes the club seem classy and clean. There is a huge LED lighting system inside that backs the main bar and is coordinated with the music. The DJ booth is opposite of the main bar, and table service booths are offered on the dance floor, Mezzanine level and on the second floor Balcony level. A Library Bar is available for rental and private parties. Check Boulevard3’s website for information on performances by famous DJs and other shows. Music is an eclectic mix of hip hop, top 40 and house.
The club is only open on Friday and Saturdays. Depending on the day, time and event, there can be fairly long lines. The website lists the dress code as “upscale trendy”, and when we went we saw that almost everyone was in nice cocktail attire. One weird thing about the bartenders were that they were drinking with the patrons which made them very distracted. We waited for a while for our drinks to be made and our tab to be closed out. One time, we were looking for our bartender and found that he was dancing on top of the bar spitting alcohol onto napkins he lit on fire (hence creating “fire balls”). I thought it was not very professional for the amount of money that we were paying to be in the club.
We paid a $20 cover charge per person and drinks were about $15 each. Shots cost $25 for two people. If you decide to pay the premium for bottle service, then the cover charge is waived.
