The Echoplex

Not many tourists find themselves in East LA, but residents of Silver Lake and Echo Park seem to love the nightclub/live music venue. The marquee has a diverse array of performers with something interesting going on almost every day.

The enormous club has four floors and 25,000 square feet of space, serving as a venue for DJs, live bands, private parties and fashion shows. A recent renovation brought the former stock exchange to modern times with a Funktion One sound system and a 200-square-foot LED screen.

Underground dance can be hard to find in this city, but Sound fills the void with their philosophy of combining cutting-edge technology with a carefully curated lineup of performers.




Avalon is one of the city’s biggest and oldest clubs, known for its Spanish colonial exterior and its history as a theater and live music venue that once hosted The Beatles. Today, it’s popular for the superstar DJs it pulls, as well as being a late-night party spot thanks to a 24-hour liquor license.
