Beacher's Madhouse impresario David Arquette is one of the partners at this supper club, which opened in the summer of 2012. The funky club (burlesque dancers and life-sized puppets perform!) is named after Arquette's mom's burlesque alter-ego, and has already drawn Katy Perry and Leonardo DiCaprio to its VIP room's pink couches.

Leonardo DiCaprio may have lost the Golden Globe for his role in Django Unchained, but that didn't stop the actor from enjoying himself a few nights later.
Alongside best friend Lukas Haas, DiCaprio visited West Hollywood hot spot Bootsy Bellows on Tuesday night.
Donning a newsboy hat, DiCaprio mingled with club promoters, while Haas did "his own thing," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "Leo hung back and sat on top of the banquette. He was getting a ton of attention from the ladies."
The usually quiet DiCaprio was "upbeat" and "even danced and clapped along" as music from Jay-Z and Kanye West played. And when the actor was approached by other clubgoers, he was "very gracious and chatted with them for a few minutes," the source adds.
Once the lights came on, the two friends reconvened to figure out their plans for the rest of the night.
Oh, what a night!
New mom Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi enjoyed a night out without baby Lorenzo Tuesday, linking up with Jersey Shore costar Deena Cortese to toast the end of their show at West Hollywood hotspot Bootsy Bellows. But the ladies had some random company, in the form of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards and her friend, Faye Resnick.
The foursome – there with a few other pals – arrived around 11:50 p.m. and went to the club's VIP room before hitting the dance floor – hard. The group busted moves to songs like James Brown's "Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine" and Jackson 5's "I Want You Back" while sipping vodka cocktails (Richards abstained from alcohol).
Once Cortese spotted club owner David Arquette, she told him, "You need to take a picture with the two meatballs. You're the sausage!" So the actor obliged, posing for a shot with Cortese and Polizzi, later seeking them out to entertain them with his Keith Richards marionette.
Resnick and Richards left around 12:30 a.m., at which time Dancing with the Stars pro Derek Hough came over to the Jersey Shore stars to say hello – just as Cortese took a tumble backward and broke a few glasses at her table.
At 1 a.m., Cortese and Polizzi left the VIP room and headed for the main part of the club to enjoy some house music, and ran into Glee star Amber Riley, who joined them at a table for a bit.
Meanwhile, Julianne Hough arrived around 1:15 a.m. (sans boyfriend Ryan Seacrest) and immediately hit the dance floor, grooving to the Spice Girls's "Wannabe" and AC/DC's "Back in Black." But when the DJ spun Dion's classic "Runaround Sue," Derek joined Julianne on the dance floor and the two broke out into a full-on choreographed routine. The dance floor cleared as people cheered them on – especially when Derek fell into the splits (more than once!). Julianne left not long after, around 1:40 a.m., and Cortese and Polizzi slipped out a few minutes (and cocktails) later. – Jennifer Garcia
After celebrating at the GQ Men of the Year bash in Hollywood on Tuesday, Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul hit up hotspot Bootsy Bellows with a group of guy friends.
The actor and his pals arrived around 1:30 a.m. and hung out in the back VIP room, opting to party on the dance floor instead of at a table. Paul got "incredibly excited" when the DJ spun Michael Jackson's "Thiller," a source tells PEOPLE, and afterward, ran out of the VIP room, returning soon after with Pat Benatar's daughter, Haley Giraldo. The two seemed like old friends and danced to Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell's "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" before Paul, who sipped on vodka cocktails throughout the evening, rocked out to the Four Tops hit "It's the Same Old Song."
Though Paul was without his fiancée, Lauren Parsekian, he "seemed really jovial and excited to be out with his boys all night," the source says. The guys had so much fun that they stayed until the lights came on and the club was closing.

The final season of Jersey Shore is quickly approaching, but that doesn't mean the party's over just yet!
Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro spent a night out at Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood on Tuesday.
Wearing their signature T-shirts, the cast mates arrived around 11:30 p.m. but didn't spend too much time together.
Nestled in a VIP room, "Ronnie spent a lot of time texting and on his phone while Mike was laid back and relaxed," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "Pauly was the most social chatting with a lot of people."
Around 12:15 p.m. Pauly left the VIP room to say hello to Paris Hilton.
While there was no fist-pumping to be seen, that didn't stop the Jersey Shore stars from staying until the club closed.

Funny seeing you here!
Zac Efron and Cheryl Burke crossed paths when they both stepped out at Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood on Tuesday.
Although they were spotted hanging together at the club just a few weeks ago, the stars had two very different nights.
Sporting a blue button-down shirt, a black beanie and a bit of facial hair, Efron kept a low profile in the club's back VIP room.
"His table was very crowded but he always seemed to be at the back of the crowd so he could have some privacy," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
Even though Efron seemed focused on a laid-back night with his friends, a female patron managed to catch his eye.
"At one point, he was flirting with a tall, thin blonde. He was definitely charming her," the source adds. "But he left the club alone when they closed at 2 a.m."
While Efron kept his evening low-key, Burke made a fashionably late entrance, arriving around 1:20 a.m.
Wearing a white Grecian-inspired dress, the Dancing with the Stars pro was upbeat as she chatted with her friend, promoter Allison Melnick before hitting the dance floor.
"She wasn't shy and busted out her dance moves to songs like Rihanna's 'Birthday [Cake.]' She was having fun," says a source.
From On the Road to the dance floor!
Kristen Dunst celebrated a friend's birthday at Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood on Thursday night.
Arriving around 10 p.m., the Bachelorette star glowed in a black dress and high heels as she and friends mixed vodka cocktails in the VIP area.
Dunst disappeared for a few minutes, only to return quickly with her beau Garrett Hedlund, who was dressed comfortably in a T-shirt and jeans. The couple was anything but shy about their affection, sitting closely and sharing quick kisses.
It's a family affair!
Kimberly Stewart celebrated her 33rd birthday with dad Rod, stepmother Penny Lancaster and brother Sean at Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood on Friday night.
In a curve-hugging black dress, Kimberly chatted with friends while Rod kept a low profile. The 67-year-old rocker didn't move from his seat when the DJ played his 1978 hit, "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?"
Benicio del Toro, who has a daughter, Delilah, with Kimberly, also joined the soiree briefly. He arrived with a few pals, wearing a baseball cap.
"The two seemed to be on good terms and got along well," a source tells PEOPLE. "Although he didn't stay for long, clearly he was there to make an appearance for Kimberly."
The festivities wrapped up around 1:15 a.m. when the Stewart family parted ways.
From Twilight to late-night!
Ashley Greene enjoyed a night out with pals at Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood, Calif., on Tuesday.
Casually dressed in a black t-shirt, jeans and black flats, the Apparition actress kept a low profile throughout the evening as she nestled into a VIP room with friends.
While the DJ spun hit after hit, Greene preferred to keep things quiet, opting for quiet conversation, as she enjoyed vodka cranberry cocktails.
"She stayed until the lights came on just after 2:00 AM," says a source, "And responsibly took a cab home."
No guy, no problem! Katy Perry left rumored beau John Mayer at home Friday night while hitting West Hollywood's Bootsy Bellows. The singer, on hand to celebrate her brother David's birthday, kicked back as his band performed.
Hanging with her friend Markus Molinari and her stylist, Johnny Wujek, Perry "seemed very happy and she was really having fun," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
Also unwinding at Bootsy Bellows Friday: Leonardo DiCaprio and pal Lukas Haas; venue owner David Arquette; and Glee's Naya Rivera, Chord Overstreet and Kevin McHale.

No trouble here! Lindsay Lohan spent a relatively quiet night out with pals at West Hollywood's Bootsy Bellows on Tuesday. The actress – wearing denim short-shorts, a black tank and crystal-studded vest – settled into a banquette in the back VIP room around 1:30 a.m., chatting away with a select group of friends.
According to an onlooker, "Lindsay seemed really mellow and like she just wanted to chill out." In fact, no one else in the hotspot seemed to realize she was there.
At one point in the evening, Lohan turned to face the mirrored wall and reapply her lip gloss. And she did take a break from chatting to watch the lounge's marionette puppets in action. But by 2:30 a.m., the starlet called it a night, grabbing her red Birkin bag and camera and slipping out.
Check in like a superstar!
