Golden Box, A Retro Disco Primed Just For Hollywood's Dance Revolution

Jeremy Fall's second production takes over the former Writer's Room tucked behind Hollywood Blvd.

Welcome Golden Box to Hollywood, a retro disco from budding nightlife impresario Jeremy Fall (Genesis), which had a private opening over the weekend in the former Writer's Room space. The grungy disco harks back to the 1980's dance scene in Downtown New York City. Though the remains of Writer's Room have been completely striped away to reveal this place, Fall wanted to make it look like this room had simply been an industrial space for as long as time. Partner Abdi Manavi, who owned the Writer's Room, is a partner in Golden Box.

Inside, find 5 golden disco balls, vintage issues of Interview Magazine strewn across the floor, a NYC elevator cage made into a DJ booth, and art installations on the wall. When the place opens to the public on November 21, the Box will be open from 9 p.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesday to Saturday, with a daily "starving artists" happy hour until 10:30 p.m. That means $7 Ketel One, Famous Grouse, Don Julio, Jack Daniels, Bacardi or Beefeater and $5 beers. Who said clubbing had to be expensive in Hollywood?
