    Don't turn your back. The waitress will swipe your $10 drink before you have a chance to drink half. Then try to make u pay $150 for a table at 1:30am. Been comin here 10 years. Don't even try it.

    Started by Johnny Depp, you'll find a consistent stream of good music. Once in a while you'll get a crappy set.

    With a famous owner, Johnny Depp and a spot on the Sunset strip, it's a pretty cool club. Steer clear of the overpriced, watered down mixed drinks. Instead grab a $5 beer.
