Dress Code

We are dedicated to a resurgence of old world style and sense of romance that once dominated Los Angeles Nightlife. Thus innovative, sophisticated and cultured attire is highly encouraged.

Our Dress Code is enforced after 9pm in all areas as specified below.

We always strive to more quickly accommodate those whose style and imagination embrace the fantasy environment at Clifton’s Republic as it is our intention to provide an exceptional, elevated guest experience in keeping with the theme of the space.  We ask that you please refrain from wearing the following: athletic wear (including backpacks, shorts, jerseys, hoodies, ball caps) & flip-flops or sandals; short sleeved t-shirts; and excessively torn or baggy jeans.

Exceptions to the above are made for Island and Resort Wear that is in keeping with the Tropical theme of the Pacific Seas– however flip-flops are never allowed under any circumstances due to safety concerns.  Please note: guest who meet the Dress Code for the Pacific Seas but not the rest of the Republic will not be allowed entry to the Tree Tops Lounge due to its upscale atmosphere.

Our Door Manager has sole discretion with regards to enforcement of our Dress Code and can make accommodations based upon special circumstances.  We will never allow our Dress Code to be applied in a discriminatory fashion and accommodations will always be made as per any Federal, State or Local legal requirements.  If you have any questions or concerns please ask to speak to the Manager on Duty directly.  Any issues should be brought to our attention promptly so they can be addressed on site.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding our Dress Code you can also email us at or call us at (213) 613-0000 and ask to speak to a Manager.

We thank you for your understanding and help in making your Clifton’s experience a legendary one!
