"Roxbury Nightclub Hollywood"

The Roxbury nightclub’s stellar design screams “club,” yet sensual touches sprinkled throughout the 5,000-square-foot space by designer Gulla Jonsdottir soften the industrial feel. Faux-leather black roses cover walls; circular booths face a circular bar with rotating leaf-like steel structures above bartender stations. Neon cursive script lines the sides of the bar (one is a line from “Love Sonnet XVII” by Pablo Neruda), while Beatles song lyrics adorn the inside of see-through circular plastic-and-glass tables (meant to be danced upon by tipsy twenty-something). I-beams jut out from the ceiling alongside exposed air ducts. The result of Jonsdottir’s build-out looks early 1990s, when the original Roxbury was at its zenith, yet the bar still feels contemporary.
