Hipsters of the world unite...with funky electro bass lines the pied piper lures you to the red W where inside lies Drai's Hollywood! I've been here a handful of times(mostly for Dim Mak Sundays) and I've yet to have a bad time. Not really much too the inside but the outside pool area is top notch. No need to immediately reserve a bungalow so feel free sit...although you will get bumped by someone with bottle service. Came here on a whim the first time when my buddy Bryan clued me in to a surprise Steve Aoki performance. Aoki killed it as only he knows how! Not to be overshadowed Dj Metric spins there on occasion and as usual comes correct with his A game! The first few times they had happy hour from 10-11pm where vodka drinks were a dollar. Not sure if they still do but if that doesn't bring the boozing scensters out of wood works I don't know what will! Not really big on clubs but Drai's gets a nod simply because the music is usually decent. Not too strict dress code but no ed hardy and make sure to use proper etiquette at the door or you will be turned away. Of course your usual $20 cover...well unless you know someone who knows someone(good looking out B!). Sexy people and good tunes...why not stop by!

There's no cover. The place is huge and can accomodate an impressive amount of people. With several bars, rooms, and floors, there are plenty of places to sit down, get intimate with someone, and have a rollicking good time. Like many clubs, the bouncers will give guys a hard time getting in if they're solo. I had a guy friend join us late and he called me to help escort him in. I asked a girlfriend to help bring him in. Once we were inside, we went to a bar to get drinks (which took forever since it was crowded and the bartenders were overworked) and the bartender didn't know how to make anything we wanted (while I can't fault anyone for not knowing how to make a duck fart or a dirty girl scout, they should at least know how to make a buttery nipple!). Moving to another bar in the next room was even worse - she was grumpy and unhelpful. We ended up getting kamikazes twice and other strange shots, but I had to provide recipes to the bartenders... Make sure you set up a meeting place as a rallying point - it's easy to lose track of friends in there!
