SBE opened new nightclub Industry in March in the former Area space on La Cienega. The space has a modern look and feel with Art Deco touches, and an outdoor lounge so well integrated with the interior that it feels seamlessly connected.
SBE executive chef Daniel Elmaleh prepares a menu of gourmet comfort food, including a variety of burgers and fries from a walk-up bar. Full-service catering is available for events.
There are plush banquettes and performance poles in the space, which has three bars in the intimate main room. Two additional private rooms have their own full bars serving specialty cocktails. The space has an AEW sound system and DJ booth with built-in Serato, and LED lighting on the dance floor.
Overall, Industry has room for 500 with a wall removed, or split up for groupings of 400 and 100. An adjacent parking lot can accommodate a tent for larger capacity. Valet parking is available.
