Today’s Club Scene is about another location presented by the luxury nightlife entertainment group, SBE Entertainment. The Sayer’s Club is a new lounge, tucked away from the hustle of a huge dance club; exquisite, opulent, and elegantly relaxed, the club features live music, classic cocktails, and an atmosphere welcoming to VIPs, favored guests, and celebrities out for the evening alike.
The first step to a night out at Sayer’s, unlike that of many other clubs, is to figure out how to get in. The low key, almost secretive location is tucked away behind a bright yellow and red hot dog stand in Hollywood. Behind it is a plain, yellow, unmarked door: which is the entrance to the club. Once you find the club, match your name to the guest list, and make your way inside there’s something you’ll notice right away: this looks more like the living room in a mansion of a James Bond movie more than a nightclub. Lush furniture matches with the dark, subdued elegance of the main room, facing a small stage, on which there are two acts every night the club is open. Musical performers are never announced until the moment they take the stage, which is a creative way to bring performers to new audiences and create suspense and surprise among club-goers. Jason Scoppa is the man to credit for both collaborating with SBE for the interior design and curating the musical features for each night. Last night was another one of The Sessions Event, the regular event characterized by surprise performances and a top-caliber show. The club incredibly also boasts a stage which has the ability to retract (or descend !) from the ceiling.
Secretive entrances and surprise music couple with the atmosphere to build the foundation of success for this seems-like-a speakeasy, but the final crucial ingredient is the cocktail fare. This is where The Sayer’s Club brings out all the stops, bringing out drinks on a libations list designed by Ryan Magarian (of Liquid Relations cocktail consulting) along with some daring new blends like the Blackberry Sidecar or the Ultraviolet, next to classics like the French Seventy-Five or The Last Word.
Venture out to 1645 Wilcox Avenue in Hollywood if you’re in the area, but make sure you know the right unmarked door to enter through, and make sure to be properly surreptitious. Sayers Club will take you back to a time when pure class was the way of the world, making you wish every night could be spent in similar splendor.
