East Hollywood hotspot that's true to its "Flash and Trash" roots.

What it's like

What’s the sonic equivalent of a sight for sore eyes? Because that’s what Gold-Diggers, a unique East Hollywood concept with a storied past, delivers in abundance. Weave through this evocative property and your ears will be treated to a thoughtfully curated selection of sounds that reflect the hip industry insider vibe that this place exudes. From the provocative series of paintings by Andrew Savage to the Audio Technica turntable (Bluetooth!) and hand-picked selection of vinyl you’ll find in your room – this is a place where music is the gateway to inspiration and relaxation. 

Guests must be 21 years of age to make a reservation and stay at Gold-Diggers. 

Independent spirit

Endlessly stylish place where music is the fabric of your space.

Small touches

Each room comes with two luxurious linen robes made custom for Gold-Diggers, the perfect attire for when you want to feel dressed up…but barely dressed. Dig in for endless treasures, including hand-selected vinyl and vintage cassettes and a limited edition Aquarium Drunkard x Gold-Diggers 12” vinyl mix that’s yours to take home. Or cue up your own music experience on your in-room Sonos. No two rooms are alike, and each features its own array of art books, musician and artist autobiographies, literary rarities and fiction.

Eat and drink

The attached Gold-Diggers watering hole is part bar, part venue, and part dance floor, offering tasty selections that provide a delightful contrast to this landmark's somewhat seedy history. As with each element of this space, music is at the forefront, and the artists you'll hear performing are second to none (even if they're not yet known). Choose to sip craft brews from local breweries, canned favorites, wine by the glass or bottle or a well-made stiff cocktail.

And more

The updated landmark LA watering hole doesn’t shy away from its vibe involving seedy glamour, disco-ball chandeliers and a storied past. Here, you’ll find all-vinyl happy hours and classic cocktails, plus a healthy helping of rock and roll, sweaty DJ sets and surprise shows. It’s all served up with state-of-the-art sound design and showcase-quality performances for an intimate audience of 175. You’ll be treated to an ever-evolving lineup of fresh talent programmed by music heads for music heads. It’s the perfect spot to discover a new artist catching the industry’s attention or be wowed by an old favorite.
