The Charleston

Los Angeles

The Charleston is a '30s-era supperclub-cum-sippery in Santa Monica that's decked out in decade-appropriate beaded chandeliers, a studded, white-leather bar, and plush, red booths... which're probably the first place to look for left-behind dead presidents. There's Monday night comedy and burlesque, live jazz on Tuesdays and Sundays, and DJs Thursdays - Saturdays. The best thing to go for, though? The happy hour, which is seven days a week from 5-8pm (5-9pm on Friday and Saturday), and the late-night happy hour from 11:30pm-close, Sunday-Thursday nights.
