Raji's was a rock and roll nightclub in central Hollywood, in the 1980s and early 1990s one of the great affectionate sweaty smoke filled 'dives' of rock, which featured among others performances by bands such as Guns N' Roses, Redd Kross, Jane's Addiction, The Dream Syndicate, Tex and the Horseheads, The Miracle Workers, Social Distortion, The Nymphs, and Los Lobos, as well as out of town acts like Nirvana, The Pink Fairies, Pussy Galore, and many others.

The space had previously been a Greek restaurant called The King's Palace, which had hosted punk rock shows booked by Brendan Mullen briefly in 1979 after the closing of The Masque.

Raji's declined in 1991, when the Pakistani owners of the building decided to take over the booking and operation of the club, and in the process deeply mismanaged it. Like the neighborhood around it, it was badly hurt by the 1992 Rodney King riots, by which time only unknown acts just starting out played there. Raji's closed in 1993. The building itself was destroyed in the 1994 Northridge earthquake, which devastated central and east Hollywood.

A bar called Raji's exists a few blocks away from the club's former location, run by the same Pakistani family which ran the club in its last two years.
