Located in what was formerly known as Little J’s, J Lounge is one of Downtown LA’s hottest nightclubs and restaurants. The venue caters to a wide variety of people as they serve lunch and dinner during the week, and then turns into a fun and energetic nightclub on Friday and Saturday nights. Blended Events and Usual Suspects LA (USLA) throw an addicting event here every Saturday.

The décor designed by Patricia Prole is upscale and eclectic with luxurious touches. The two story 25,000 square foot venue houses 3 fully stocked bars. Drinks are on the pricey side, but the staff of great bartenders serves with charm while making drinks fast and strong. There is an upstairs smoking patio that has plenty of room to sit and mingle while enjoying one of the many fine cigars that can be purchased at the establishment. The 2nd floor also holds a decent sized dance floor where world famous DJs spin and sexy gogo dancers get the crowd moving.  This last Saturday DJ’s John Magic and C-L.A. mixed Hip Hop and Top 40 music to the crowds delight, as Jackie and Misa Campo provided the gogo talent.

Downstairs holds the best feature of the venue, which is the huge 10,000 square foot outdoor patio. The patio offers a nice view of Downtown and is lined with comfortable cabanas that offer full bottle service, but servers can be hard to track down throughout the evening.

Blended and USLA pack the house with a great-looking young crowd just looking to unwind and have a fun night out. Celebrities, Steve Terada and Brian Hirano, from America’s Best Dance Crew’s winners, Quest Crew, were spotted enjoying the evening with friends in the 1000 person capacity space.
