WeHo's Club Scene Is Out of Ideas After Vignette Returns as Villa Lounge

Same name, same place, same clientele

What’s old is new again, as it appears that Vignette lounge in West Hollywood has re-transitioned back into Villa Lounge, the more popular club iteration on that site. It’s a rare triple-flip for owner Reza Roohi, who ran the first go-round of Villa Lounge in the late 2000’s before turning the place into Vignette and, now, back into Villa Lounge.

A passing tipster first noticed the reheat on some signage out front, which had transitioned back into Villa Lounge status. The long-defunct Facebook page for the nightlife spot is also back up and running, showing off lines around the block again and a few key shots of the interior. Still keeping it’s red-hued bordello feel, the bi-level space has loads of room for table service, plus a small main mingling space downstairs.

Not much else is known about the Villa Lounge resurrection at the moment, as the about face seems only a couple of weeks old. Still, it’s already become something of a celebrity hotspot once again, with the Daily Mail spotting Leonardo DiCaprio partying there post-Oscars just this past Wednesday.
