DJs Drew and ODM from KIIS FM broadcast live from this 18-plus Top 40 dance party every Saturday night. Dress code is pretty strict-no headwear, athletic wear, baggy clothing or plain white T-shirts allowed. $20 for ages 18-20; $15 for 21+.
So you're not 21 and you don't make $7 million per picture-still, partying in LA isn't out of the question. Check out these all-ages and 18-and-over venues and club nights for dancing and (nonalcoholic beverage) drinking. -Enid Portuguez
