Unpretentious, fun, bachelorette party in LA area: help?

MPJ | May 27, 2007 09:47 PM

I've been a lurker on the boards for quite a while, and I'm finally posting for the first time because I need major help with planning my best friend's bachelorette party this August.

I've read through the posts (I searched under "bachelorette"), but none of the clubs/restaurants are really striking a chord with me. I'm originally from LA, moved away when I was 18, and now I'm in DC (I'm in my late 20s). So I'm completely unfamiliar with the LA area as far as restaurants/clubs/hotels and so forth, and really need some assistance!

Here's the deal: My girlfriend is pretty low-key, and we don't like pretension, i.e. the Sunset Strip isn't our style. I was hoping I could find a restaurant or lounge where we could have dinner and then drink and dance, and where the vibe would be pretty laid-back, but still social and fun. Preferably not a college-aged crowd. Does this exist?

Another idea I had, and I have no idea if this even exists, is a wine-tasting party. Like if there was a fun restaurant where we could have a dinner or appetizers and maybe pay a flat fee per person where a sommelier or wine enthusiast would come out with a bunch of wines and we'd taste and basically get tipsy and enjoy ourselves that way. Is this way-off base?

Good food is definitely a must, and nothing exorbitantly expensive.

I've had a few recommendations from random people, can you maybe tell me what you think about each and recommend/suggest a few others?

The Bungalow Club
Moun of Tunis
Asia de Cuba (this scares me, as Sky Bar seems a bit trendy/fancy/expensive)

Thank you SO much in advance...I know I'm picky and have high expectations, but you should see what she did for my bachelorette!! Insanity.

Thanks again!
