Planning a Flirty Dirty 30 Birthday Party! Any Ideas???

Hey Folks!

I'm turning 30 in May and I'm already thinking of party ideas. I never really had a full on birthday party where I invited everyone and anyone and I figured maybe this upcoming birthday should be a pretty decent one lol

A few people suggested Vegas but the only problem with that is not EVERYONE can go especially right now when money is tight. It's still an option though.

But does anyone else have any unique and fun ideas? Does anyone know of a place that serves food and also becomes a club after? Or any places that you can reserve your own partying room in a club? Something to that nature. I'm not very good in knowing what's out there in the nightlife of Hollywood so any suggestions or ideas are greatly welcomed! =)

  1. You ought to check out Tokyo Delves in North Hollywood. It sounds like it may be what you are looking for.

        You might call Thai Palms in Hollywood and ask if they do any sort of birthday's the place that features the Thai Elvis. (make sure he's there that night...some times he's on the road.) After that, maybe you could hit a club or two? I'm not very up on this...but the Hollywood Roosevelt?

    2. Unless you're getting bottle service and can arrange with a club to have all your friends on the door list, I would steer you away from hollywood. I just think it takes away from everyones' enjoyment when they have to stand in a long line waiting to get into a loud club. But this largely depends on your friends' tolerance for that sort of thing.

      I can tell you what I did for my 30th last year, although it might be more lowkey than what you have in mind. A smaller group of my close friends ate dinner at Gilbert's El Indio in Santa Monica and then headed down the street to the Daily Pint where everyone else met us. The Daily Pint is very good about allowing in outside food and so I brought in a cake from Susiecakes. No one had to wait in any lines, it didn't strain the budgets of anyone in the group, and it was the most fun birthday I've ever had.

      Are you pretty set on doing something in the Hollywood area or are you open to other parts of town?

        I'm totally open for any ideas. It doesn't have to be a club or anything either.

        1. re: swtsarina

          Given that you are open to various other ideas then how about for something different? And it's actually in Hollywood so the location is good per your geographic requirements in your original post.

      2. Another option where you could get a private room is Musha in Santa Monica.

        You could also do dinner at Simon LA and then head over to Stone Rose Lounge.

        1. The Edison downtown has good food and a cool speakeasy envirionment. No Hollywood atitude and affordable prices. private areas and even a private room. I don't know what they would charge for the room, but last Friday night at 8:30 pm, all I needed to get a table is to guarantee $25/head. Checkout their website

          1. I had my bachelorette party--and held one for a friend--at Hollywood Men ( at Hollywood & Highland. You have plenty of food options around the area; we did ours at Koji's Shabu Shabu for proximity. You'll definitely want to eat before you go see the show, as that venue only serves drinks (and maybe chips/popcorn).
