A sparkling new gem is poised to dazzle Hollywood's nightlife scene as the brilliant minds at Framework reveal their latest feat, The Spotlight. Crafted as an intimate, upscale retreat, the 2,700 square-foot space aspires to beam as a bevy of entertainment for patrons pursuing a refined night on the town
“Growing up in Israel, you see a glamorization of Hollywood across the movies and television,’ said Framework founder Kobi Danan. “These images struck a chord with me, and evoked a deep desire to honor and contribute to the Hollywood legacy in some way shape or form.”
Since 2013, Framework has fostered unique underground experiences in Los Angeles. Last year became a notable run for the nightlife purveyors with a 2023 season that included a Hollywood Boulevard shutdown for Under Construction with Fisher and Chris Lake; the L.A. debut of Afterlife at Los Angeles Historic Park in partnership with Goldenvoice and the Framework in the Desert series at Ross Aviation Thermal Airport and Zenyara, which treated attendees to a surprise performance by Skrillex.
With this venue opening, Framework further cements its presence in Los Angeles.
Tucked beside the Dream hotel and wrapped in an eye-catching mural, The Spotlight channels a retro charm reminiscent of a 1960s social club and through its name, pays tribute to Los Angeles nightlife history. Closed just over a decade ago, “Spotlight” was the name of one of Hollywood’s original gay clubs.
Outfitted with an adaptable stage and tailored sound system, The Spotlight stands ready to spotlight a kaleidoscope of talent from DJs to bands. Its opening weekend lineup, which took place Jan. 25 to 27, features SG Lewis, The Dare and Ahmed Spins. Come Grammy weekend, The Spotlight will welcome Gospel NYC with DJ Tennis, Ariel Vromen and others.
“Community [is] one of the most important things in my life,” added Danan. “I knew that fostering a community for music, in particular, dance music in all its forms in Hollywood was the obvious answer.”
The Spotlight is located at1601 N Cahuenga Blvd 90028.
