    If you go to the Hotel Cafe, go to LISTEN not to talk (of if you must talk, do it between sets or outside because the rest of us are there to listen). Thanks! :)

    One of the best places in LA to catch a show. Please, shut up if someone is playing. You can take your conversation out the door to the back bar.

    This is my favorite music venue in Hollywood. It's built for intimate concerts with great sound and upscale music tastes. You'll probably need to get parking (best is in alley - usually $5-8)

    This place gets hot, as in ‘sweating through my shirt.’ If you’re in the standing section, hide out under one of the ceiling fans. At least you’ll catch a breeze that makes the temperature tolerable. Read more
