Neon Carnival presented by Don Julio and Levi’s

The wristband everyone has their eye on for the perfect Coachella partying experience is that of the Neon Carnival in Thermal on April 15th. Arguably the most sought-after (and exclusive) invites of the weekend, attaining a wristband involves being a VIP or hoping that you know someone who is. Guests are welcomed to the ultimate outdoor after-party featuring carnival rides, a dancefloor, complimentary drinks, and live DJ sets from some of the best in the business. Brent Bolthouse, the nightlife aficionado behind Santa Monica’s The Bungalow, created the iconic Bolthouse Productions event that’s now in its eleventh year. With a new location set for 2018, this year’s festivities at the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport will be sure to create plenty of memories to last a lifetime.

Party with LA’s Finest at Warwick in Hollywood

Any Angeleno looking to experience a fun evening on the town knows that the city’s ever-changing nightlife landscape is what helps keep Los Angeles exciting. But what happens when one destination continuously evolves all on its own? Warwick’s unique practice of staying fresh by regularly redesigning their space has placed them as a staple in the Hollywood club scene. For partygoers looking to revel amongst lavish décor, stylish crowds and trendy playlists, Warwick has established itself as a Sunset Boulevard go-to in the heart of Hollywood.

Most recently launching its seventh seasonal redesign since opening, Warwick’s creativity in the conceptual theme of the property perseveres with each new re-imagination. The newest #WarwickSeven features dark and mysterious earth-toned furnishings against exposed brick feature walls. In comparison to #WarwickSix’s beachy and playfully referenced Scarface theme, the newest design elicits a sexier feel sure to bring out guests’ inner party animal. No matter the design, clubgoers are always guaranteed to be surrounded by an ambiance that keeps them returning as the experience evolves.

Regular customers are treated like celebrities, and celebrities are treated like regular customers.


In entering the main room, guests can immediately tell they’re in for a night of elegance, as lounge-worthy sofas and coffee tables stocked with drink mixers accentuate the grand nature of the space. Whether it’s a table fit for a small group of friends, or the larger elevated booths that run along the sidelines, any visitor feels welcomed in the spacious yet cozy atmosphere. For those without bottle service, there’s no problem getting a drink at the three-sided bar that lets guests mix with club patrons as bartenders mix their drinks. A specialty cocktail menu to compliment the theme features satisfying concoctions that offer great alternatives to ubiquitous club drinks. Those looking for more intimacy can head to the upstairs bar which overlooks the party from above. The additional bottle service tables, and standing room perfect for a dance break, allow you to witness the bustle of the lower level while still being able to enjoy a quality conversation with friends.

With a dim, lounge environment perfect for getting lost in the night’s escapades, Warwick is a natural draw for VIP clientele. From socialites and actors to DJs and pop stars, Hollywood’s elite often stop by to indulge in the luxury of a vibrant crowd and quality service. Photographers waiting outside the club is a common occurrence, as paparazzi hope to catch a glance of Calvin Harris, Miley Cyrus, Chris Brown or any of the club’s other recognizable faces.

Aside from the more well-known visitors, the bevy of partygoers stopping by every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday bring in plenty of energy to keep the celebration going all night long. The chic, attractive crowd, combined with a regularly refreshed design, creates the perfect vibe for any night owl looking to get their fill of the Hollywood nightlife scene.
