Raspoutine West Hollywood is French excellence personified by the savoir-faire of Alexander Ghislain and Logan Maggio. It is where the party spirit, the talent to be unique and the embodiment of chic evolve within a unique fur-lined, scarlet velvet, lace and bronze embroidery cadre.

Located at 8623 Melrose Avenue, the prestigious address is packed with Hollywood history. This was the place that received the first liquor license in Los Angeles in 1919 before transforming itself into a speakeasy, frequented by the cream of Hollywood when Prohibition was enforced. Raspoutine partners, Alexander and Logan, have transformed this historic address into a luxurious and unique venue on Los Angeles nocturnal landscape. Raspoutine is already known for its prestigious venues in Paris, Rome, and Marrakesh where offbeat sophistication and effortless distinction reign. Now the owners bring that sophisticated nightlife to West Hollywood with the same door policy and world class DJs, providing a sensual deep house musical atmosphere.
