When you think of argyle, socks, sweaters and vests are probably what come to mind (after all, it is a nifty pattern).

Well believe it or not, the word Argyle has just evolved to take on two whole new meanings that have nothing to do with that favorite pattern of yours. In fact, there are two new forms of argyle for you to enjoy: one in the form of a swanky cocktail den and the other, a raging nightclub.

Introducing the Argyle Hollywood, where upstairs you can find the hottest new nightclub in LA, and downstairs you can find an upscale, underground cocktail den. This new spot is perfect for all of your shenanigans, whether you’re looking for fancy schmancy weeknight place to drink, or somewhere to rage on the weekend.

If you’re looking for a snazzy place to get after work drinks or impress the ladies, head to the downstairs cocktail den. There you’ll find yourself in a speakeasy-esque room that reminds you of an old library, with a huge bar that serves marshmallows and delicious signature cocktails in mason jars. Yes, you read that first part correctly; there are marshmallows at the bar. Don’t be fooled though, these aren’t your typical fire-roasting, s’more making marshmallows; in fact these fluffy delights are actually cocktails themselves (no, we are not entirely sure how it’s possible but we recommend just going with it).

If you’re looking for a swanky space for dancing rather than a cocktail den for conversation, then just head upstairs. There you’ll find a Gatsby inspired nightclub with snakeskin booths and bottle service, colored LED lights, a giant black chandelier, and a huge dance floor where you can get down to your favorite DJ.

And to answer the question that is probably on your mind, the answer is no, you do not get a discount if you show up in an argyle sweater set.
