    This was the coolest surprise. Multiple screening locations in addition to a concert venue(s).

    Interesting shows, great beer list, shitty men's room. Everything I've come to love about small theatre in LA! I still mis the old Evidence Room, but the place still has a vibe. Lots of there there.

    Awesome venue, you think you're at the back...and then you find the second bar.

    Cool indie space. Multiple rooms to hang out in. Theater has seating to back, open floor to front. Get there early if you want to sit for the show. Then slap yourself.

    The venue's residencies features some great up-and-coming bands. My favorite part of the venue is its photo booth, where many a picture has been drunkenly taken by my friends and me. Read more

    The Bootleg is a venue that sticks with you. It's one of those places that has its finger placed firmly on the pulse of the underground music scene. Read more

    This is not silver lake. It is a beautiful venue.

    if you're looking for cocktails, find the giant upside down 'cocktails' sign, walk past it and through the exit, because you won't find any here. they only serve beer and wine.

    Small venue with a loud sound system. Good selection of reasonably priced beer on tap and in bottles. If you get hungry, there's a solid taco stand on the SE corner of Beverly and Alvarado.

    The first music venue I went to in LA. Feels like your friend's basement. Lots of good beer behind the bar, a photobooth in the back, and a great outdoor area in the way back.

    Amazing beer list for a music spot! A few craft beers and Belgian stuff too. Check out the old school Rampart police door!

    For the non-drinker...Mexican Coke! Yes, Coca Cola in the old fashioned bottles which means it's made with real sugar. Tastyiness.

    This venue has great sound! Like the Troubadour, it's all wood ceilings & walls. This makes for acoustics! They also have a plethora of beer & wine selections!

    Steven Valdez · July 8, 2011
  • JasonCarlin

    This place has fancy beer! Delirium Tremens, Chimay, La Fin Du Monde, Arrogant Bastard, and a handful of craft brews on tap. Unbelievable.

  • Andriana (.

    Coolest music venue out there. Their Monday night residencies consistently have great line ups of up and coming bands. Crowd is always hot and everyone is here because they love music. My second home!

    Come have a drink with us at the Tweak Bird show May 8th. Celebrate Mother's Day the proper way. Love you, Mom.
