Jet-setters, socialites and celebrities have a home at the Luxor and its name is LAX.
Considering that it shares its name with an airport, the club is appropriately located across from a bar named Flight, on the ground floor of the Luxor.
LAX is a mid-size club with two stories, blending both modern and Golden Age Hollywood vibes and using gothic accents throughout to create a very luxurious venue.
Once you're through the wrought-iron doors at the club entrance and head upstairs, you'll pass through a dark hallway that empties out into a roundabout room with deep, red accent lighting. From here, you can head to the elegant upper hallway or the grand staircase, which brings you down to the dance floor.
Although the trend lately has been more toward a bunch of smaller rooms, each with different types of music playing, LAX is a big, two-story club space. Since there's less of a focus on making sure every little section is blocked off and has its own sound system, the club can instead do what it does best: putting on a massive party.
The dance floor is a basic affair - a long rectangle tucked between a VIP booth area and the elevated DJ booth and second VIP area, with a bar and another staircase at the far end. You can be fairly up close and personal when celeb guests are in town, or just hang to the side at the bar - either way, you've got a pretty good view of the rest of the club and opportunity to hear some of the best hip-hop, Top 40 and electronic music your ears can handle. Fans can catch resident DJ Gusto on select Wednesdays (LAX's industry night) and Saturdays.
A balcony-style second floor overlooks the dance floor and DJ booth below. Mirrors and chandeliers highlight the dimly-lit hallway connecting the private table areas, which feature booth seating made of red leather and curtains for added privacy.
It can get pretty crowded near the bar at times, but don't fret. If you head all the way through the second-floor hallway and you'll find yourself at a second bar and with just enough space for dancing and hanging out. If it gets packed, you can easily go down that second staircase and back to the first floor.
With these features, it comes as no surprise LAX has seen recent guests like Ice-T, Ginuwine, Talib Kweli and Snooki of "Jersey Shore" fame.
