Hollywood Music Director & KCRW DJ Chris Douridas uses this Monday night showcase to debut talent who go on to play MUCH larger venues within months - always for free, often their LA or even US debuts
Gaudy and overpriced
Be sure to check the calendar for the drag shows
Super cool venue for music, with different bars that have different vibes
AMAZING Wine Tasting + Magic Show by @Davidminkin this past saturday! Greatest thing i've ever seen #magicandwine
David Minkin's magic is amazing! And they serve great wine!
I hear the magic and wine show with David Minkin is fantastic!
2013 #LAWeeklyWebAwards (and Mr. Black is a good party here on Tuesdays)
Dont ever come to this place. Worst service and venue for anything. Not worth waiting in line for any fucking shit even if its free.
See nationally-touring indie bands for free at It's a School Night on Mondays.
This place is super cool. Nice atmosphere and the drinks are stiff.
Close encounters of the Capitol Records kind... Cool spot!
Stage right stairs tend to be less crowded and being a little higher up gives you a great view of the bands.
Go on Mondays to discover new awesome bands.

Always a fun place
This lounge has it all, class, swanky decor, a comfortable ambiance, friendly staff and attracts good looking people(obviously one of the most important factors!).
Don't lie to security when doing something wrong and they will be nice to you.
Spacious and fun! They close too early though
School night Mondays are definitely good times!
Couch north of dj booth.
Mr. BLACK L.A. Presents Playboy Party. Winner of L.A. Weekly's Best Dance Party. Open Vodka Bar 9:30-10:30pm. No flip-flops allowed! :)
Smoke a cigarette inside, just because you can.
It's a School Night on Mondays. Check out a free show. Tuesdays are Mr. Black, which has to be like a modern day Studio 54. Incredible.
Mr. Black L.A. Every Tuesday. Epic!
Flip flops are not allowed friends! If you wear them you will not be let in
Beer hinakane 6 item's
Peter Bjorn and John!
Leave your phones in the car or make a point of not losing it. This place is cursed for my friends and losing their phones
Smoking area in the back... indoors! This place is really dead if you get there too early, it's a bit of a late crowd.
Not many bars like this in LA. They have done everything right. Great place to take out of town visitors...u will prob see a celebrity or two.
This was the last place I got to see A.M spin in L.A. R.I.P brother!!
fantastic on the right night
Best place to smoke indoors!
remember when this was spider club? ah, good times. good times. my tip is to try your best to avoid the people waiting in line for the avalon. they are vile.
Mondays for School Night with KCRW's Chris Douridas and an amazing lineup of artists/bands. No more need be said!
Wonder what Ryan Gosling's listening to? The actor is often found in the deejay booth of this club also known for burlesque shows, jazz and rock concerts–it even has room to showcase new art.
Hosted bar 930-1030pm Tuesday nights @ Mr. Black.
Wait until after 10
1 of the more expensive Monday residencies in terms of drinks. Better music acts though
I heard someone took a dump on the dance floor.
One of the best bars in LA. Insane DJs, good people watching, occasional awe-inspiring performances.
Went in under Andres Regal, some nice talent, but doesn't really start hopping until 1130.
Tuesday is Mr. Black. Awesome gay night.Great djs.
Saturday nights there is live music - usually by someone awesome.
