Only a year after nightclub owner Steve Edelson took over Los Globos, the Sunset Boulevard club has been turned into Silver Lake’s new nighttime hot spot, with hundreds packing the dance floors and bars inside the two-story building. But Los Globos is not so popular with many neighbors, many of whom have complained about rowdy and noisy patrons, the disappearance of street parking and long-lines of club goers waiting outside homes and apartments on Vendome Street. On Thursday night, a committee of the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council has invited residents as well as club management to a special meeting devoted to complaints about the nightclub.
The meeting is being held as the Los Angeles Police Commission reviews some of the Los Globos permits. A neighborhood council member said the biggest complaint about the club is the noise it generates. The club has taken measures to sound proof the building, but the frequent opening and closing of doors sends blasts of dance and techno music shooting into nearby homes, north and south of Sunset Boulevard.
Many of the same issues and complaints were raised about a year ago at a previous neighborhood council meeting but the complaints have continued to come in, said the council member.
Thursday’s meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Citibank Community Room, 2450 Glendale Blvd.
