I dig this place, especially since it's make over. Great beer selection and bartenders are generally pretty cool ... as long as their not slammed.

Huge dancefloor and watered down drinks – We went on a Sat night after eating at The Grill. We stood in line for 15-20 minutes because they only have one person checking id's. They don't even have a handheld id scanner.

$20 cover, $15 if you get on the websites guestlist. I recommend you contact a promoter and get on their guest list to get a better discount.

There is a coat check just inside the entrance which alot of nice places lack. Right next to it was an atm.

I ordered a long island ice tea and a sapphire and tonic. Both drinks came in the same size glass. Each drink was watered down and cost $10.

Later I got my date a Grey Goose and cranberry. I watched the bartender poor it from a Grey Goose bottle, but it was definitely not Grey Goose.

I didn't order any beer, but I saw they served it in bottles so I m thinking that's the smart way to drink here.

The dancefloor is huge and at 10 pm the ladies out numbered the gents by 3 to 1. Women of all colors shapes and sizes were here. Around 11 pm the ratio became 2-1. Fellas where you at?

There is no dress code, but all the women in the place was dressed up. There were two more dj's spinning upstairs in more of a lounge type setting.

Meh... – If you are going for dinner than this place is great, but I would not recommend staying for the club. This place has gone down hill.

Needs to move on – Completely humongous!!! This venue can easily hold 2000 people with 3000 passing through it on a busy night.

There is absolutely no quality control of any kind. If there is then I have not witness it in 4 years. Ok so may be they search for hidden guns & knifes but thats about it. There is zero control over dress code, looks or ratio. Its pretty much the lowest calibre of any nightclub.

Due to some important special events I have been to this venue a few times. Its extremely difficult to fill up so they allow everyone in. I feel sorry for all the tourists that end up here; making it their first experience of a Hollywood club.

Its another Avalon, Music Box & Vanguard, huge, smelly, low quality everything, ghetto with frequent fights. Half the girls that walk through the doors are professional wrestlers in the making, they just dont know it yet.

I heard about a $21 million refurbishment which has yet to materialize.

The only good thing about this venue is the location on Hollywood blvd and the views from the 4th & 5th floor of the complex. Oh and the close proximity of many restaurants and hotel.

I would not recommend it to anyone.

New clubs opens in Hollywood all the time. To find the best option for you, check out my website - www evitaparties com. eVita Parties provides Hollywood Guest List to Hollywood Clubs & Los Angeles Events.

if you have a bad review, you need help – The Highlands is an amazing club, I don't know what happens on Friday nights, (which is where these bad reviews seem to come from) but Saturday Night is where it's at!!!

I recently started promoting this club, but before I decided to promote it I took it for a spin... I went a couple Saturdays and It's awesome.... the bouncers, security, coat check chick, bartenders and servers are all nice people. The Highlands has a great rep otherwise they wouldn't have lasted this long... there are 4 DJ's spinning in 4 different rooms at the same time so you have a variety of music.... the main dance floor is huge with lots of people, upstairs is more of a mellow mood with a lounge....

If you want to get in on a guest list, let me know.... I have my own guest list and no one has ever had a problem getting in. Guys are 1/2 off and ladies are FREE before 11pm, parking is in the hollywood/highland complex.... $2 with validation (and the club validates)

So if you had one bad experience, I would suggest you try it out again.... this time try to be more open minded... don't think about the past... make it an evening you will cherish FOREVER!!! <3 (or at least till the next weekend!!!)

No Good – Man, it was super crowded. Hardly no girls. It took us forever just to get in. $20 bucks cover. Forget it. Go somewhere else!

If you're looking for a big club in hollywood, Highlands is great! 1500+ Capacity – Located in the famous Hollywood & Highlands building where Kodak Theatre is, I was pleasantly suprised that Highlands was a big multi level club with numerous outdoor patios and even an open air restaurant upstairs with 180 degree views of LA, El Capitan Theatre, and Hollywood Blvd!

Went on a Friday night and had a great time!

Pros:

-HUGE venue ... could fit thousands of people

-Had dinner at "The Rise" and had a nice modern supper lounge feel, food was good (get the hummus!) and not too pricey (wolfgang puck menu).

-Cover was $20 (every venue in Hollywood is like that)

-Parking was validated and less than $5 in the parking complex! (AWESOME for Hollywood!)

-Good music

-Beautiful view from Garden Terrace and in front of the club

-Big dance floors, patios, and bars!

-Nice and comfortable couches in "Bergundy Room" and "Loft"

-Good music! Played mash-up, hip hop, and remixes ...

-Open till 3AM!!!!!

Cons:

-Security is tight, got frisked like i was at the airport, so don't wear hats or bring gum / perfume (?) (although i guess this is necessary in a big club like this)

-lots of people and couldn't get through certain areas (certain doorways were hard to get through the crowd ... but other areas were WAY BETTER than the small lounge/clubs in Hollywood)

-Lines in front to get in could have gone quicker!

Overall, it was a good friday night, I heard Saturdays are a bit more urban though ... if you're looking for a big club with lots of room to breathe rather than the cool time wannabe celeb lounges ... Highlands is a great option!

Very Fun Girls Night!!!~ – I went here with a couple of my girlfriends in April and we had a great time! I don't really relate too much to waiting in line like some of the other people are saying below. My friend emailed ahead and put us on the guest list so we started off in the shorter line, but after talking to one of the bouncers, he let us right in and we didn't have to pay a cover! They didn't pat us down like some people are saying but our outfits were simple jeans and tanks so we couldn't hide anything and we brought in our clutches, which only hold our lipgloss, car key, some cash, ID and a credit card. Who brings a actual purse to the club anyway? U put motrin and gum in the zipper of your clutch! However, we choose here because we are use to more high scale places that have very small dance floors becaue mostly everyone is people watching and all that jazz, and this place has a HUGE dance floor on the first level, and really nice sized on in the back corner, and a nice sized on upstairs, all playing different music. The drinks are a little bit watered down, but if your going to dance and have fun and not booze it up, then this is a great place! The people we met there were all really cool and we had a good time....started off with a party of 3 ended the night with a party of 15 of we randomly people we met there. Just think this whenever you go out, no matter where you go, someone is going to have a bad experience for every good experience there is out there.

BAD CLUB DO NOT GO!!!! – I chose to go to this club for my 22nd birthday because the first time I went I had a great time with 2 other girls. I made sure to put my name on the guest list for me and 15 other people. I received a confirmation back through email stating I was confirmed...to not call or email back. So on June 13th 2008, I show up w/ 4 other people I asked one bouncer where to stand in line if i was on the guest list, he told me to stand in the regular line! I went up to another bouncer with a list and he told me to hold on. Once he finally came, he told me i WASN'T ON THE LIST! I was angry because they told me that I should have brought the confirmation with me, but mind you it DID NOT say on the email confirmation to print it out and bring it with you. After arguing with him and telling him it was my 22nd birthday and showing him my id, he let us in for free. MY BOYFRIEND however was interrogated! He is an EMT and had a CPR mouth to mouth cover that the bouncers thought was a stash of illegal narcotics!! These people r so stupid!! Then they questioned him because he didn't look like his id pix cuz he had gained some weight and cut his hair. He showed them other id's and credit cards w/his name on it and they finally let him in after 10 mins! Please no matter what you do, DO NOT COME HERE! I was not pleased at all and never realized that you are being judged by what you wear or who you are (color of skin). I just simply wanted to have a good time for my bday and it was all ruined. I ended going to Vertigos instead where i got in for free, drinks were less expensive, and had a blast after what happened at the Highland. I looked like a fool telling everyone to go to the highlands for them to tell me that i should've printed out the confirmation. THEY SHOULD STATE THAT ON THE EMAIL CONFIRMATION THEY SEND YOU!!!!!! Find somewhere else to go for any occasion...it's not worth the hassle to get into the highland....

Great Saturday night event!! – After writing for another club I felt I must write it for another great Hollywood hot spot. After attending an event from my promoter friend I had to check out his Saturday night at The Highlands. It was great because I showed up and didn't have to wait in line, or worry about pesky door people asking me a bunch of questions as to who's list I was on. I contacted Bryan from Clubworks and was able to go to the shorter line and right into the club with no problem. I wasn't in time for guestlist so me and my people had to pay $20 cover which sucked, but understandable seeing as how we missed the huge line outside. Once inside the diverse crowed was great full of people of all types. The drinks were ok, but it's Hollywood so I expect it now. The music in the main room was not my favorite, but the back room and upstairs were great! Overall the experience was great but not amazing. I would never want to wait in that line so I'm glad I found away around it!
