A Mural-Slathered Dance Club in the Heart of Hollywood

Cocktails, Legendary Graffiti and Dancing in the Subway Station

Your shopping is finished.

Stockings are hung.

Maybe you've even let a carol escape from your mouth.

Now, if you'd like a little respite from the seasonal joy in a graffiti-clad nightclub that resembles the New York subway, we'd enjoy making something like that happen for you.

In fact, Station1640 is exactly that, a jumping, paint-splattered nightspot merging the visual and aural with mezcal and dancing, now soft-open before its New Year's Eve grand-opening party in Hollywood.

If you've ever waited for a never-coming F Train at three in the morning, you'll recognize this place. It looks just like an NYC subway station, down to the white tile, train signs and tagged train behind the bar. There are also pieces from the kinds of graffiti artists that will make the history books, including your Retnas, Risks and Slicks. Go ahead, touch the art.

And this place should also be a big hub for DJs and bands, as it hosts the long-running Clinic Wednesdays for house fans. And if you make it here tonight, you'll be in the thick of Favela Friday, launching with all the Brazilian hip-hop and pop that such a name suggests.

Or come any old time you seek a fun, immersive place to drink and dance. The former goes down with mezcal-based Tamarind & Smokes and Top-to-Bottom margaritas with muddled cucumber. The latter with a Void sound system that looks like crazy air horns. 

And if you really like it here, you can have it all to yourself. Just hit them up and secure the whole thing for a private party.

You'll have to give it back at some point.
