1212 (Santa Monica)

Starting off strong with one of our favorites… this gem: 1212 Santa Monica. 1212 is the best of both worlds. She’s the Hannah Montana of nightclubs if you will. During the week, you can experience a fun, delicious place to dine, and on Saturdays, you can experience upscale nightlife with some of Los Angeles’ best DJs. Did we mention that they host a killer brunch too?
