New Yorkers know how to party, but there's something different in the water in Los Angeles. Partying there is a completely different vibe - the venues are bigger, the talent pool is wider and money is never a concern when opening up a new club (or reinventing an old one). 

The best part about partying in L.A. is that you never know who you're going to be rubbing elbows with; you might bump into a record producer at low-key Station behind the W Hotel, or you might bump into Paris Hilton at our favorite steakhouse, Meat on Ocean. Your weekend in L.A. can be as crazy as you want it to be, but you must go with an open mind and a love of dancing, booze, and rooftop pools.

From swanky hotel scenes to insane venues that give House of Yes a run for its money, click through for some of our latest L.A. faves.
