Champagne spraying over tables. Beautiful women doing things they wouldn’t do within 200 miles of their mothers. Leonardo DiCaprio to your right, taking it all in with a leonine smile.
No, you’re not in Wolf of Wall Street. Just hanging out at the new club on the Sunset Strip is all.
Meet 1 OAK, a New York–exported club heavy on champagne, hip-hop and already-frequent DiCaprio sightings, now open in the former Key Club spot.
Like any good debaucherous club, its entrance is a cavernous hallway engraved with Charles Darwin’s writings—in case survival of the fittest wasn’t properly demonstrated at the red rope out front.
What this leads to: a massive ballroom of excess, with chevron floors, a massive marble bar, tan leather booths and... braille-studded paintings of gorillas. (Maybe to remind you again, as bottles swarm around you, of how far we’ve come as an evolved species.)
So, yeah, your night: big party situation. Someone in your group probably procured entry through the purchase of bottled spirits and table girls. Someone might be celebrating an Oscar nomination. Someone might exchange pleasantries with Jay Z and Bono, who’ve also been by.
Or you might just get a drink at the bar and go dance a lot.
We heard some crazy rumors about that happening, too.
