Las Palmas isn't as flashy as the other clubs in Hollywood, and it was my first time hearing about this place when I went there two weeks ago. As we got to the club, there was a parking lot right across the street from the club which was $10, not too bad considering how difficult parking is around this area. We decided to just park in the lot then headed over the club. We got there around 10-10:30, and there was a line of ~15 people. Since it was only three of us (all girls) we talked to the bouncer and asked him if we could just get in and at first he said no, but he later talked to the other people inside to get us in. When we got into the club, it was pretty much empty and no one was really dancing. But something unique about this place is that there was glowsticks all over the place that you can make bracelets and necklaces with. I thought that was a fun touch to the club. Also, there was an outdoor patio right next to the dance floor, so I was able to get some nice breeze whenever it got a little too hot. Around 11:30, the club started filling up slowly, and by 12, it was so crowded there was barely any room for us to dance. As for the music, since I'm more of a house/electro fan, the songs they played there wasn't my cup of tea. They played a lot of hip hop, well... more like all hip hop and 1 or 2 songs of mainstream electro/house here and there. We left early to go to the other club and when we stepped outside, there was an INCREDIBLY long line, so if you want to check this place out, I advise you to get there early.

I must first say that if you have the time to do both, purchase the Pemberton Place Pass. It is truly a great deal and you can experience the Aquarium as well as the world of Coke for one low price (purchase online). Added bonus- you can bypass the long lines at the aquarium (not at the world of coke). Now, as far as the aquarium goes... DON'T EVER GO ON A SATURDAY- unless forced. As many of the previous posts state- it can get miserably crowded and becomes a chore instead of something fun and exciting. Try a weekday to save some aggravation. This place falls short of 5stars because there is not much room in front of each "tank" forcing you to wait in fairly lengthy lines to get a glimpse at an otter licking himself... But... This place is so cool for kids! The sheer volume of the beluga whale tank is so neat- there is even a place to sit and watch to take it all in. The moving floor room that takes you underwater is so cool- but can get claustrophobic. The river otters and penguins are SO adorable. You can even pet a shark and stingray! We did not experience the cafe- however I saw a lot of chicken fingers... The gift shop is your typical overpriced junk store but I still got suckered in to buying a stuffed pink otter for $16.99 :) They do have some good deals on T-shirts @ 2/$20. Overall, we had a blast- just had to be patient (not a bad thing to learn!).

I came. I drank beer. I ate Veggie Burger. I go back. liked the atmosphere, laid back and the veg burg was good as i was hopin it would be. bartender was nice, (even though i was in an incredibly indecisive and acting oddly/precarious about the subject of avocados) I liked the tavern feel/no snob effect, would like to experience live music some night, and dogs wear wigs here.
