    Awesome spot with great acts. Be sure to double check if your ticket is for the Echo or Echoplex. Heads up the staff won't let you in and out even with a wristband. Photobooth & ATM inside 👌🏼🤘🏼

    One of my favorite LA nights starts at the Echo with a Little Dragon performance, or the Echoplex for a RZA show before heading to the Short Stop for a last call PBR. Read more

    Don't come here if you don't like getting uncomfortably close to a lot of people at once. Beer fests here are super fun, sound is okay, bring cigarettes because you'll want to smoke them.

    Sweaty. Packed like sardines. Better to go to The Whiskey, The Roxy or The Troubador if you want to sweat with a bunch of people around you. Cheap though. Feels like The Glass House in Pomona.

    The Echo and its downstairs counterpart, Echoplex book the hottest indie bands. Stop by the Echo for regular “Bootie L.A.” nights, featuring DJs spinning rock and pop mash-ups. Read more

    Although the sound and layout leave much to be desired, the Echoplex has hosted some of the best LA music nights of past 5 years. Consistent sounds.

    The bouncer cussed me out and physically threatened my boyfriend. I do not feel safe at a venue that allows their employees to treat patrons in this way. Customers should be respected, not threatened.

    Lots of great music shows happen here, but sometimes the most fun events are offbeat, like roller disco, mash-up clubs, life-size Tetris playoffs and massive rock-paper-scissors competitions. Read more

    Great fucking venue. My favorite place. From part-time punks to bootie LA to CYP2 to having the Rolling Stone play here for $20. Any night is a good night.

    Go To Bootie LA the first Saturday night of every month. They spin awesome mash-ups, never a line, and a casual, fun atmosphere.

    See the random valet? And the Security guard? that alley is where you enter. Order two Boots pizza from the bar and drink and dance.

    The go to spot for metal bands playing in LA. Unfortunately the acoustics behind the sound booth leave something to be desired.

    The sightlines aren't so great, but the sound is normally on point. Go early, stand in the front.

    DRIPPING with 80s excess: mirrors, neon, and gaudy colors everywhere... and some of most consistently great touring bands and DJ nites.

    The"free drink" at checkin is apparently for the mayor only. They don't want your phone number or email for marketing purposes.
