Universal CityWalk is the home of a new, upscale venue for sophisticated Angelenos and the international public. Infusion Lounge is preparing to ignite their nightclub during this summer, with an opening of Friday, June 24, and an official Grand Opening party in August that will include a red carpet scene for the 9,800 square-foot space.

Does this sound exciting? Yes, it does.

Upon visiting the brand new location of Infusion Lounge, we could see the remodeling progress from what used to be the Rumba Room. Its upscale elements get two thumbs, way up, and are sure to attract a lot of traffic. The redefined venue promises to carry a positively dramatic Asian-inspired interior on both levels.

Additionally, Infusion Lounge is projected to have state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems, world-class DJs spinning Top-40 mash-ups and house tracks and delicious premium signature drinks, including deluxe bottle service.

With such an experience already offered in a San Francisco location, founder Chris Rosas explains the idea of bringing Infusion Lounge to Universal City.

“Los Angeles is very cosmopolitan. People here travel, they know fashion and they know what defines a five-star nightlife experience,” Rosas says through a press release. “Our Universal CityWalk location is ideal to serve a clientele that will come from all over the city, and from all over the world.”

Immediately this points out to what the brand’s strategy is, and it sounds like a convincing one that the public will positively respond to after personally visiting Infusion Lounge themselves.

Infusion Lounge will feature two bars, two spacious dancing floors, two VIP areas and custom furnishings, among other things. However, one prominent aspect of the lounge to look forward to is the soon-to-be installed giant dragon just outside the entrance. This giant dragon is a colossal way to get attention in an already entertainment-filled CityWalk.

“We intend to deliver a consistent, upscale experience, and our guests will know they’ll have an amazing evening every time they come to Infusion Lounge,” Rosas adds.

One intriguing part will most likely be the upstairs VIP area, which is sure to elevate the fun. What else will Infusion Lounge have to offer? Well, it is slated to open Mondays and Tuesdays from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m., while opening Wednesdays through Sundays from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. Moreover, this venue will be the only Universal CityWalk site to offer a seven-days-a-week Happy Hour, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. A daily Happy Hour sounds epic!

Universal CityWalk is a world famous entertainment attraction for both locals and the tourist crowds. With its fine dining, unique shopping and thrilling attractions, CityWalk is an ideal location for Infusion Lounge even in the current recession.

“Even in a challenging economy, people are still looking to be entertained, and they want to feel pampered,” Rosas goes on. “There’s always an interest in new entertainment.”

The coolest thing about Infusion Lounge is its proximity to some of the most populated areas of Los Angeles; it is just minutes away from Downtown, Hollywood, Santa Monica and other West L.A. cities, Pasadena and both the San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys.

Private events, business meetings, seminars, banquets or receptions can be arranged at Infusion Lounge, which can accommodate groups of up to 300 while having custom menus and onsite catering.

We cannot ignore the drinks. Champagne, red and white wines are an obvious offer, but the cocktail list is simply exquisite. Some of the signature cocktails will include Fresh Citrus Caipirinhas, Strawberry-Balsamic Mojitos, Lychee Martinis and Rainbow Sherberts.

“It’s a multicultural concept, which is very much in line with our clientele,” Universal CityWalk Vice President of Public Relations Eliot Sekuler states in the press release. “It’s exciting and fresh, the designs are beautiful, and Chris Rosas is a great manager. We think the concept they have, to be so successful in San Francisco, would work perfectly at the location at CityWalk.”
