Sure, hidden speakeasies are no longer necessary in this WAY post-prohibition era, but that doesn’t mean we can’t pretend – especially when a premier nightlife group like sbe rolls out their latest den of debauchery, The Sayers Club.
Now officially open to the public, The Sayers Club is on track to become one of Hollywood’s hippest, super exclusive joints. You may be wondering, what separates The Sayers Club from the rest of the Hollywood hoopla? Well, try the secret entrance…through neighboring Papaya King. Seriously. You enter the bar through a fucking hot dog restaurant!
A couple of deets: The Sayers Club is less glitzy and slightly rough around the edges; comparisons have been made to the bar Harvard and Stone and Dracula’s castle. Also, unfortunately the cocktails will cost you a pretty penny: $18 for drinks (but for good reason, they’re crafted by Ryan Magarian, of the Liquid Relations cocktail consulting ilk. Fancy and a little dirty – just how we like it).
If the quirky entrance and delicious drinks haven’t lured you in yet, perhaps live music will do the trick. All musical guests will be handpicked by Nightlife Director Jason Scoppa (the mastermind behind Bardot’s Sessions – usual guests included LP, Macy Gray, Bruno Mars, Florence Welch, Deryck Whibley, and Nick Simmons) and remain an unknown to the world outside the lounge – unless you’re inside, of course. Just ask Entourage star Jeremy Piven who, while paying a visit to The Sayers Club, guested on drums for a rendition of a Tom Petty’s “Refugee” with the band performing that night.
So, it’s official, The Sayers Club has all the bells and whistles to make our hip list & we know where we’ll be getting minxy all summer long (simultaneously confusing the hell out of hot dog patrons at 2:00 AM!).
