Tru, (1600 Argyle Ave., Los Angeles, 90028) an Old Hollywood themed three level club and dining experience opens today. Tru has quartz wallpaper to appear as sparkling diamond walls, and crystals that come down from the ceiling. Interesting. There is the usual dj booth, dance floor, and VIP retreat, but for a breath of fresh air you can hit the inside/outside mezzanine level connected with a massive glass wall from the main space. But the big secret is the second private bar and lounge called 1 Below. It sits under Tru’s main floor. Here, get wrapped up in the velvet sofas and the color crimson.
Besides the usual cocktails, Tru has a small plate American menu. The selections include crab cakes, fried calamari, Kobe sliders, chicken skewers, and fried ravioli.
