Time Out says

Completed in 1927, this cavernous theater remains L.A.'s preeminent superclub. Avalon’s nearly 100-year run is a feat in itself—how on earth does such a space maintain its staying power? Most likely, by offering exclusive perks you can’t find anywhere else. To start, Avalon is the only club in L.A. to have a 24-hour license. That means a non-stop offering of weekend-long fiestas, and a bar that re-opens at 6am to reward those who danced all night. The club also has a stronghold when it comes to booking global DJ phenoms (Sasha and Marcus Schultz West Coast residencies were both forged here). Factor in its sheer size and its custom sound system—which delivers one of the most delightfully chest-thumping experiences in L.A.—and you’ve got a legendary space that’s ready to party whenever you are. Play with the pop tarts at Tigerheat, the Thursday night jam for the 18 and over, polysexual set. Or hit up Control on Fridays for more underground-driven house and drum and bass sounds from the likes of DJs Justin Martin, Photek and UZ. There's nary any trance, so leave the glow-sticks at home. And bring earplugs: the venue boasts the best sound system in the city, a floorshaking EAW Avalon Series set-up that cost a cool $1 million.

What’s on

Emo Nite

Did Emo Nite single-handedly bring back pop-punk or did it just so happen to ride one of the first waves of late-’90s nostalgia before it became TikTok-ified? (We’re going to side with the former.) Regardless, cake on the eyeliner at this emo dance party. This throwback night started at the Short Stop in 2015 as Taking Back Tuesday and proved so popular that it quickly moved to the Echo and Echoplex. These days, Emo Nite has become a bona fide institution, with lines around the block and surprise appearances from the likes of Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus and former From First to Last Frontman Sonny Moore (a.k.a. Skrillex).
