The main entrance leads down a flight of stairs into an area with comfy couches and the look of a library. This is what management likes to refer to as the cocktail den.
“Downstairs in the craft cocktail lounge, you can take a breather and actually talk to the person you’re with,” says Travis Bass of Tru Hospitality group. “We wanted a 1920s speakeasy down here, but upscale in London or Paris with no Prohibition.”
The venue’s side entrance on Selma Avenue leads upstairs to the nightclub, where there is a large dance floor, fancy lighting and the only two-story VIP booth in all of Los Angeles. The Argyle’s website describes the club as “a champagne jam where high art, high fashion, and high times mingle on the dance floor and the DJ is only as important as the next song.”

Cathouse LA At The Argyle
If your start-of-the-week blues can only be cured by late nights in subterranean clubs, the Cathouse LA hot-spot at The Argyle could do the trick tonight and every Monday—and only on Mondays.
Each week, models sporting riding crops and black cat string masks are expected to saunter through the space; where you can expect intermittent burlesque numbers.
There is an old-timey rotary phone, which is a photo booth (simply remove the handset from cradle and a camera will go off), as well as complimentary shots of vodka-tinged “cat-nip” at the door from select concierges.
Descend to the club and pass through velvet curtains to find a ’20s-inspired lounge. A long hallway of doors lead to library VIP room with a fireplace filled with electric candles. Diamond-studded tufted leather booths, lingerie-clad models and VIP rooms modernize the speakeasy concept.
There’s no food; except for chocolate-covered strawberries given to everyone at midnight; and a few of their house cocktails like Behind the Mask, the Cat House and Madame Larue. There are also classic-leaning cocktails, bubbly sippers and a playlist of ’90s, 2000s and contemporary music because “the venue pays homage to the purity of music rather than DJ.
How To Best Dress
Dress to impress! Collared shirt / jeans / dress shoes for guys. Avoid anything considered athletic attire (e.g. track suit, jersey, hats, etc).
