    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

    This place is nice, but the bartender made the worst old fashioned. No orange, no cherry. Cointreau and sours...fail.

    This iconic Hollywood venue is small and intimate. Play loud? Bring flexible gear for crunch tones at low volumes. Also, consider getting a sound board recording. The sound engineers do a great job.
