Academy LA Details:

🍔 Food:
There’s no food served in the building, but certain events may have a food truck on the outdoor patio. There’s also bound to be handy dandy LA Dog carts outside on your way out.

🍸 Drinks:
It’s very much a nightclub drink menu, nothing fancy. Drinks are on the expensive side even for basics. There’s a beer selection though as a cheaper alternative.

🎶 Music:
Academy LA is pretty much a haven for EDM and dance music. Most artists fall within that genre, but every once in a while you might find a hip hop artist or events. Check out the calendar on their site to know the schedule before you go.

It’s more of a concert venue style than a traditional LA nightclub. Each night (or daytime Patio event) is ticketed with pricing depending on the artists playing. The indoor space has a pretty impressive lighting setup for visuals. It also doesn’t get ridiculously hot like other EDM venues can. The tropical-themed Patio is the perfect escape for fresh air or for attending weekend daytime events. Academy LA also closes at 3am–an hour later than most nightlife spots.

📸 Photo Ops:
It’s impossible not to take video of the one-of-a-kind curved LED ceiling panels.
