There's nothing Hollywood loves more than a good premiere. Actor turned club impresario Vinny Laresca takes that to the next level with his new club, Premiere, a 5,000 square-foot nightclub in the heart of Hollywood. For its opening, Premiere is set as a mid-century Spanish theater inspired by the works of Gaudi and Dali, but the venue plans a series of revivals and re-openings as the seasons come and go (think of these as costume changes).
Laresca says, "I wanted to create a venue where I could bring my two passions, theater and nightlife, together in the same space." The club at Las Palmas and Hollywood Boulevard opens into a large room with arches, raised seating, and a 30-foot bar. Opposing staircases lead upstairs to a second level, which overlooks the dance-floor and DJ booth. The upper level boasts an additional, full-service bar and balcony seating.
For its fall debut, the club is dressed up in crimson velvet, exposed brick, dark-stained pine and Spanish tiles to suggest the Catalonian region of Spain. The club will serve personal pizzas and gourmet paninis along with other light bar fare. A unique selection of custom-made shots will be available by the bottle or half bottle at the VIP tables. The club is opening this month and operates from 9pm-2am on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Contact info is available on the Premiere website.
