    Intimate performing space with fantastic acoustics, good bars, a small kitchen, and a history that puts the Whisky to shame! Lenny Bruce was one of the. First arrests here - back in 1957. Obscenity!!

    The Troubadour has a small kitchen, front and rear bars, and an intimate performance space. It exists because it sets the standard - the Whisky only wishes it sounded as good.

    The sound in the Troubadour is nearly always perfect. A great venue, if rather claustrophobic at times.
