THE SCOOP: These adjacent A-list nightspots have dual personalities: on one side is Crimson, a swanky lounge enclosed by red glass mosaic tile, faux python skin, and smoked mirrors where night crawlers lay low and sip cocktails. On the other is Opera, where a majestic 25-foot entry vestibule opens up to reveal VIP tables, handcrafted walnut bars and a dance floor that converts into a stage for live performances. (Rumor has it that these sister night spots will be home to a rockin' CBS Golden Globe party this year.)
