Came here to see Pendulum! Parking was decent and the bouncers were nice. I think they did a great job with crowd control during the event. Never clubbed so I can't write a review for that. Sound system was decent and the bathroom was clean.

This is one of the "it" places in LA for clubbing...especially for the Asian crowd. Saturday night is Asian night. The venue itself is huge, with a big dance floor on the bottom floor, and another smaller one on the 3rd floor. Where the balcony seats would be for a theatre, there are now tables set up there. There is also a pretty big outdoor smoking area.
Like all clubs, drinks here are pretty expensive. 12 bucks for a beer, 14 for Long Islands.
--EDIT-- This place sucks now. I did not have fun the last time I went and according to a lot of my lady friends, only creepy dudes go here now.

One of the hottest clubs in LA right now, there's a line around the building at 10pm! My main reason for loving this club is the bottle service was so cheap. $450 for 3 bottles, and then one of the promoters gave us an extra bottle of Crown just to be nice. The vibe inside felt like Vegas. They gave out those foam light up sticks things, had smoke, and confetti when they dropped EDM tunes, and the crowd was fun. There's an upstairs dance room and bar as well. The venue is huge, and it was a lot of fun. I definitely recommend bottle service. Shots of jameson at the bar were $13 each!

I was really torn about how I should rate this place. The venue is very nice. They have a great layout and the decor is quite impressive. I believe it use to be an old theater, so the architecture is very interesting.
I came here a week prior to my birthday and decided to plan my birthday celebration there the following week. I was in contact with a promoter throughout the week regarding reserving a table and putting names on the guest list. We ultimately agreed on terms and I even provided my CC information to reserve the table. However, when we got there the table line was much longer than the general line. We were even told that all the tables were all sold out. Apparently if you do not show up prior to 11PM they go ahead and sell all the table. I didn't really understand the point of reserving a table, but I didn't make a fuss considering it was my birthday. Fortunately they were able to accommodate my party with a small table located on the main dance floor.
The night went by relatively smoothly. All my friends had fun and the table service was satisfactory. Music was also great. We had an overall great time.
We ran into a another snag at the end of the night. After having paid for the table I asked the server for my credit card back. I did not even bother to look, because they put your ID and CC in a small envelop. While on the ride back home I received a call from the club indicating that they had returned the wrong card to me. So unfortunately we had to return the to club to retrieve my cards and to return the incorrect ones. Fortunately Richard Nam was gracious enough to make the situation right, by comping my bill.
I'd say Belasco is a great venue. It seems like one of the up and coming venues in the Downtown LA area. Although there were a few hiccups throughout the night, I'd say they staff was more than willing to accommodate for any errors. Minor growing pains are to be expected for a relatively new place. Hopefully these kinks get worked out, because I would enjoy partying here in the future.

The Belasco Theatre was completed in 1926 as a stage theater, opening with a stage production of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. It has also been used as a porn theater and a church. Its six-story, reinforced concrete structure has eclectic cast-stone decorations displaying Churrigueresque, Spanish Renaissance, Moorish and Gothic details. The auditorium was specifically designed for legitimate drama with the audience sitting within easy hearing distance of the stage. With its well-preserved interior, the theater is used occasionally for movie shoots.
