    Any night is a good night. Beers $5-$9. Not bad. You can order pizza from the venue. First timers please don't block the walkway/bar to the patio. A lot of indie bands and upcoming artists. [chvrches]

    Small intimate venue. Concerts are loud and the place gets packed quickly.

    The Echo has the most adventurous, experimental lineup of any Eastside music venue.

    If you're into funk, soul and fancy footwork, then Funky Sole's on Saturday is for you. The music is hard not to dance to and you'll find yourself grooving out on a floor packed with breakers. Read more

    This place is an incognita. I heard opera, jazz and rock in the same night. Don't go alone. Not good for flerting!

    Cool place way too expensive

    Women's restroom is behind the merch table while the men's restroom is on the opposite side of the stage. Be prepped before pushing your way through the crowd.

    High ceilings.

    Nice venue for music

    Daniele Giusto · August 31, 2014
  • Manda C.

    Really reasonable drinks prices for a music venue. Can usually get a beer or cider for $5-7

    Manda Currell · August 20, 2014
  • Victoria M.

    Plenty of places to sit. Small venue, so it's very intimate, making it easy to see the artist up close without having to wait in line all day.

    Victoria Mckay · August 19, 2014

    Better than the EchoPlex down the corner. Room to move & you can see who you're sweating with. $5/$10 bucks cover. On the cheap.

    Joseph K · August 18, 2014
  • Derek B.

    Awesome layout! Bar seating in the back with a slightly raised platform so you can still see the show. Dance floor on the right. Patio entrance at the back left. And cool staff to boot.

    Derek Blechinger · August 12, 2014
  • CJ B.

    Grand ole echo on Sunday afternoon/evening. Blue grass. Cheap beer. Patio. The good life

    CJ Bruce · April 27, 2014
  • Cris C.

    Funky Sole. Friendly, happy, positive people. A great experience. Place was packed! Great to see young folks digging music made like 20 years before they were born. Drinks were steep ($$) though.

    Cris Cisneros · January 26, 2014
  • Sew

    Rock and roll; you'll enjoy both together but not apart from one another.

    The Echo: the stage is stacked on subwoofers. So you feel it in your pants.

    You're definitely not too uncool enough.

    Very small intimate club.

    LA Home & Style · March 19, 2013
  • Jerel W.

    Is now the best venue in LA. Other spots have gotten too pricey or fallen off. Bootie parties, part time punks, funky sole, check yo ponytail and new and old underground, indie favorites

    Sock Puppet Sitcom Theatre. This month, Roseanne. Next month, The Golden Girls!

    They don't tell you beforehand that you can't bring your backpack and then they tell you to fuck off if you try to get back inside even though you already paid for your ticket. Full of assholes.

    Isaac Murguia · August 6, 2012

    No backpacks allowed.

    Watch out when you walk in that you don't fall and break a hipster!

  • Chelsea

    One of my favorite places to see a show in LA. Every view is a good view and if you get bored of the crowds take your beer out back and chat up a stranger or stare at your feet. Bring cigarettes.

    Chelsea · December 2, 2011

    One of the best venues in LA.

    Fun fact: Airborne Toxic Event played 10 of their first 12 shows here. They literally had to beg for the slot after Spaceland said no. What do you think the booking agent would say now?

    SPIN · July 22, 2011
  • TicketWeb

    Great parking and good food in the surrounding neighborhoods! Once you get in the drinks at the full bar are inexpensive. The venue is small but every view is a great view! Read more

  • Adam P.

    Not the most glamorous, but the divey vibes & iconic status give a kind of cbgb feel to an LA venue. Order Two Boots at the bar, & catch Monday night residencies to see bands on the verge of success

    Adam Palermo · July 9, 2011
  • Geoffrey P.

    I've been thrown out of here for fistfighting on the dancefloor.

    The Echo really is one of the best Indie clubs in the world. Pick a night. It will either be the next new sound or a classic underground act! TW ♥'s the Echo! Read more

    Bring cash for Two Boots pizza afterwards :)

    Part Time Punks & Depeche Mode night = fun!

  • Original Penguin

    Going here means you’ve gotta venture out into the artists’ Echo Park enclave. Plenty of great out-of-town bands blow through here on a regular basis, but don’t expect top-list clientele.

    Original Penguin · October 28, 2010
  • Liz

    Stage lighting here sucks.
