Club Report: Avalon (Hollywood)

Avalon Nightclub in Hollywood, California first opened as a theater in 1927.
Located at the corner of Hollywood & Vine, it's directly across the street from the iconic Capitol Records Building.
The interior is striking. Notice the craftsmanship of the lobby bar.
And the artistic ceiling.
And this inside VIP area. A lot of history has taken place in Avalon and DJMag readers recently voted it the #37 club in the world and certainly the top club in L.A.
Last night it was home to another episode of "In Trance We Trust".
Opening set from DJ Niko Zografos (USA).
The early crowd began to populate the sunken dance floor as he played Uplifting Trance.
I love his DJ logo which can be both a N or a Z depending on how you look at it.
The club has dozens of spotlights and they were employed early!
Coming on at 11PM, DJ Kristina Sky (USA).
Dance floor still had a lot of room.
But it was building as midnight approached.
First time seeing Kristina Sky since last November at EDC-Orlando. Link.
At 12:15AM, things got serious! DJ Menno de Jong (NL).
His first 30 minutes was heavy on 138-style Trance.
And the club was officially jammed!
The Amsterdam-based DJ is a manager for the "In Trance We Trust" brand. Trance!
He had the crowd in a frenzy with Trance classics such as 4 Strings (NL) "Take Me Away", Above & Beyond's (GB) "Thing Called Love" and my favorite Oceanlab's (GB) "Satellite".
You can never go wrong with Go Go girls!
Like I said.
The headliner was Alex M.O.R.P.H.(D) coming on at 1:30AM.
I last saw M.O.R.P.H. at Bikkuri Lounge this past September. Link.
Sadly I could not stay any longer because I needed to head to LAX by 7AM. But it was a great show and a good time was had by all!
