    Another wonderfully small place to see a band in LA. Pretty good parking situation as well. Plenty of lots nearby.

    James McMurtry. Fantastic opening set. Guess I'll have to make it to Austin more often.

    Truly the most intimate performing space in LA.

    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.

    Very intimate and very loud venue. Bring earplugs or buy them at the bar. You won't see music up this close anywhere else in LA.

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

    Classic west Hollywood venue for live music. Great views from multiple seats in the house, but it's all about the upstairs VIP (sometimes) area with a separate bar.

    The music hub, with a small capacity of 400, brings you up close with your favorite musicians. If you decide to take a breather at its bar up front, don't worry about missing the show Read more

    Troubadour has had some serious history in being one of L.A.'s top music venues. Since it opened in 1957, it has had acts like Elton John, Guns N' Roses, and Radiohead play on its stage. Read more

    Very interactive indoor setting for fans. If you want a good view but want to avoid the craziness, step out onto the balcony!

    My favorite music venue. Small, great sound, good view from anywhere, cameras are fine, and great musical acts are always showing up.

    Bring earplugs! This place has one of the best (and loudest) sound systems in town. Also, be prepared to stand, unless in the balconies.
