Cicada Club is one those places that reminds you Los Angeles is much cooler than it will ever get credit for. This downtown supper club has all the old Hollywood, art-deco vibes you could want and a live big band that gets the dance floor heated up early. You can go all-in for the dinner setup, or just buy separate tickets to come and only dance ($25 a piece). That might seem steep, but it’s the price you pay for time travel.
