Nadine's Irish Mist

Nadine's Irish Mist

The live bands and karaoke nights hosted at Nadine's usually lay waste to Sunset Beach's sleepy reputation. But it's all in good fun at this rocking Irish pub.

  • Good Hurt

    Good Hurt

    12249 Venice Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90066
    310-390-1076

    http://www.goodhurt.net In the past decade, Good Hurt has become West Los Angeles' longest-running live rock nightclub. Its fiery red interior creates an appropriately lurid mood for a wide range of music, from funk and indie rock to techno and reggae. The club's weekly Medicinal Mondays showcase features a "Rock & Pole" show in which beautiful dancers twist and contort themselves suggestively and athletically around a pole to the live accompaniment of the house band Big Lovin' Panda. Adding to the bar's sexy vibe, waitresses dress up in nurses' uniforms to serve special drinks like the Transfusion. Vintage posters of cultural icons like Marvin Gaye and Pam Grier adorn the club's red walls alongside mounted white first-aid kits, and a bright neon sign emblazoned with the word "Prescriptions" hangs prominently over the full bar to beckon patrons who need a shot of salvation. Street parking available. Ages 21 & over. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

  • The Hollywood Studio Bar & Grill

    The Hollywood Studio Bar & Grill

    6122 Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90028
    323-466-9917

    http://www.hollywoodstudiobarandgrill.com This intimate live-music bar and restaurant is tucked into the Gower Gulch mini-mall, which was once the stellar nexus of early Tinseltown history. These days, the club presents a similarly stellar assortment of top-flight jazz musicians, as well as comedy, blues, flamenco and pop showcases. Presented by Dolores Peterson, the club's signature weekly open mic features such redoubtable jazz vets as pianist-leader Karen Hernandez, bassist Tony Dumas and drummer Ralph Penland backing up sometimes heavy surprise guests. And yet, located at the busy intersection of Sunset Boulevard and the aptly named El Centro Avenue in the heart of Hollywood, the room's vibe is convivial and calming instead of brassy and showy. Booths along the wall and small tables on the wooden floor face a low stage wedged in the corner, where the performers hover palpably close to diners. Black-&-white photos of legendary musicians are framed on wood-paneled walls, while the booths are adorned with elaborate touches like semi-circular, inverted-pyramid-shaped Art Deco-style lamps. The cover and minimums vary but are generally low, with some drinks and entrees priced moderately higher. Chef Juan Mercado's continental menu includes favorites like spinach quesadilla, gazpacho and the salmon mango salad. The restaurant has a small outdoor patio, and, in a true Hollywood rarity, free parking in the mini-mall's lot. Full bar. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

  • The Hotel Cafe

    The Hotel Cafe

    1623 1/2 N. Cahuenga Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90028
    323-461-2040

    http://www.hotelcafe.com This live-music bar is more than just an inviting room for singer-songwriters to muse on their broken Hollywood dreams, half-baked romantic schemes and all that sort of stuff. The Hotel Cafe has become so synonymous with a certain style of mainstream yet high-level pop music that it annually presents its own national tour featuring folks like Cary Brothers. Other past performers and longtime regulars include such tunesmiths as Jesca Hoop, Meiko, John Mayer, Nellie McKay, Weezer, Jim Bianco, Terra Naomi, Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard, Dar Williams, Pegi Young and Concrete Blonde's Johnette Napolitano. Since 2000, the former small coffeehouse, located just south of Hollywood Boulevard, has expanded into two rooms with full bars. The glittery front bar evokes a vintage Tinseltown hotel lobby, while the second and larger room is darker, with spherical hanging lamps casting a muted glow over a low stage and a stark red-velvet curtain. The cafe's menu includes paninis, salads, quesadillas and, in a nod to its coffeehouse past, a range of espresso specialties. Ages 21 & over. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

  • House of Blues Sunset Strip

    House of Blues Sunset Strip

    8430 Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90069
    323-848-5100

    http://www.houseofblues.com The Porch at The House of Blues, only open for dinner, is as colorful as the building: Red curtains pulled back under open doorways, red-and-yellow ceilings, and walls with funky designs. The Southern-style fare of chicken-fried chicken, cajun meatloaf, and creole seafood jambalaya ranges from $10-$25 dollars. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

  • The Kibitz Room

    The Kibitz Room

    419 N. Fairfax Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90036
    323-651-2030

    http://www.cantersdeli.com Matzo ball soup and kosher favorites are a draw at Canter's famous deli, but it's Kibitz, the bar next door, where people who really want to get pickled go. Added to the establishment back in 1961, the room melds old-fashioned touches with rock n' roll flair. Rock photographs, the work of the owner's son, Marc Canter, line the walls around the small stage, many featuring players who went on to stardom: The Wallflowers, The Freewheelers, The Black Crowes, to name a few. Slash was known to pop in for some noodling. Today, Kibitz features weekly entertainment including live jazz, rock and pop. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

  • Lot 1 Cafe

    Lot 1 Cafe

    1533 W. Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90026
    213-481-8400

    http://www.lot1cafe.com Some restaurants emerge fully formed, rough edges smoothed by architects and restaurant consultants, menus run through focus groups. Lot 1 is the other kind of new restaurant, a raw space seemingly willed into being, black walls and nine funky tables, heart-stoppingly beautiful tattooed waitresses, and a farmers-market-intensive roster of dishes. I was happy to hear the entire first Black Sabbath album played as soft background music. Restaurant owner Eileen Leslie murmurs about doubling the restaurant's size, installing a tasting menu, beefing up the air conditioning and becoming licensed for beer and wine. She's making it up as she goes along, which could be either annoying or incredibly cool, depending on where you stand on these things. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

  • The Mint

    The Mint

    6010 W. Pico Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90035
    323-954-9400

    http://www.themintla.com In a city where history is measured in months instead of decades, the Mint is a real cultural treasure. The bar has been presenting live music ever since it opened in 1937, and Stevie Wonder, Macy Gray, Ray Charles, Zigaboo Modeliste, Leo Nocentelli, Royal Crown Revue and the Wallflowers are among the many notable musicians who've performed on its small stage. The room has a homey appeal, with kitschy artifacts like Johnny Cash paintings and glass display cases with souvenirs from such celebrities as Jackson Browne artfully blended with burnished wooden walls and cozy booths decorated with ornate lamps and plush velvet drapes. The ceiling above the bar is covered with old vinyl 45s, and the overall vibe appeals to rock & roll fanatics and hardcore roots-music aficionados. The large menu puts a fresh spin to classic American, Asian and Southwestern fare with such specialties as calamari tempura, Creole jambalaya, grilled salmon with mango chutney, "twisted" mac & cheese, and smoked Gouda and chicken quesadillas. You can sit at the bar, which has a full range of beer, wine and spirits, or at comfortable booths along the walls. Better yet, find a seat at the tables that abut the low stage for an even more intimate musical experience. Ages 21 & over. Street parking. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

    http://www.mollymalonesla.com Run by the same family since it opened in 1969, this neighborhood Irish bar has friendly regulars, and Guinness stout and Harp lager on tap. Music ranges from traditional Irish drinking songs to original singer-songwriters and bands. Joan Osborne, Lenny Kravitz and Michelle Shocked are among the musicians who've played here. Full bar. Over 21. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

  • Mr. T

    Mr. T's Bowl

    5261 N. Figueroa Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90042
    323-256-7561

    http://mrtsbowl.tripod.com The bowling lanes may no longer be open at Mr. T's Bowl, but the longtime bar remains one of Highland Park's main live-music nightclubs. The place is still run by the family of its namesake founder, Joe Teresa, who opened Mr. T's Bowl in 1966 and died in 2004. The venue has undergone several distinct incarnations over the decades, evolving from a blue-collar bowling alley and neighborhood bar into the art-punk hipster hangout Fuzzyland in the early 1990s, before settling into its current role as a showcase for indie-rock bands from the northeast side of Los Angeles. The decor retains much of the club's original charm, with Christmas lights twinkling over the cluttered bar and vestiges of the old bowling lanes still visible behind the stage curtain. The main music room has a low stage, scattered tables and a wide area for dancing and mingling, while the bar is situated to the side in a nook with comfortable booths. Beck, Los Abandoned, the Breeders, 8-Bit, Backbiter, Saccharine Trust, Third Grade Teacher and Go Betty Go are among the many musicians who've played there, and Mr. T's currently alternates bookings of indie, pop and garage combos with burlesque nights. The affable soundman Arlo has been such a veteran fixture in the sound booth that a local band once named themselves after him. The full bar stills draws early-evening visits from the feisty 70-something barflies who've been coming here for years, before younger scenesters fill the place later at night. Mr. T's has its own parking lot, and patrons enter through the back entrance by the lot. Ages 21 & over. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

    777 Chick Hearn Court L.A., CA 90015
    213-763-6030

    http://www.nokiatheatrelalive.com This large theater is part of downtown's L.A. Live complex, which includes Staples Center, the Conga Room, Club Nokia and the Grammy Museum. With a capacity of 7,100, Nokia Theatre is bigger than the nearby Club Nokia. Since opening in 2007, the site has hosted concerts, award shows (including the Emmys), boxing and other sports events. Neil Young, the Dixie Chicks, Anita Baker, John Fogerty, Queens of the Stage, Diana Ross, Jenni Rivera, and the Scorpions are among the musicians who've performed there.

    Pete's Cafe & Bar

    400 S. Main St. Los Angeles, CA 90013
    213-617-1000

    http://www.petescafe.com Based in an elegant ground-floor room in a vintage downtown building, Pete's has completely classic bar-cafe-grill good looks. There's also a hint of contemporary clubbiness. The food is a functional, midpriced take on New American cooking: mac and cheese, a gilded burger (fontina, tomato aioli), steaks, bread pudding, and, when available, a fresh tomato soup that seems to sing, optimistically, of summer. A house specialty, blue-cheese fries, is sinful, potatoes tossed hot with the sharp salty cheese so they're limp yet crisp and chewy: irresistible. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

  • Roxy Theatre

    Roxy Theatre

    9009 Sunset Blvd. West Hollywood, CA 90069
    310-278-9457

    http://www.theroxyonsunset.com Since its opening in 1973, the Sunset Strip nightclub has presented a stellar array of musicians, comedians and theatrical revues, including Neil Young, Bob Marley, Rickie Lee Jones, Chuck Berry, Genesis, Bruce Springsteen, Miles Davis, David Bowie, the Clash, Prince, the Replacements, the Pharcyde, Jane's Addiction, Dolly Parton, the Dead Weather, the Dickies, Cobra Verde, Nellie McKay, the Ringling Sisters, Nirvana, the Sex Pistols, Pee-Wee Herman and the American theatrical debut of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The Ramones filmed the concert scenes for Rock & Roll High School here, and Van Morrison, Social Distortion and Warren Zevon are among the notable personalities who've recorded live albums in the West Hollywood club. Apart from a full-service bar, the main room and its dark walls (which feature photos of past performers) are austere and functional instead of lavishly decorated, but that's because the focus is on the musicians onstage. The adjoining upstairs lounge On the Rox hosts parties, DJs and live performances and has been the site of numerous celebrity sightings, going back to John Lennon's and Harry Nilsson's notorious lost weekend in the mid-1970s. Both venues are all ages with separate full bars. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

    The Satellite

    1717 Silver Lake Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90026
    323-661-4380

    http://www.thesatellitela.com Everyone from Rilo Kiley and the White Stripes to the New York Dolls and Gossip has played at this indie-rock bastion, which for many years was known as Spaceland but is now called the Satellite. The Silver Lake bar has had several distinct incarnations, evolving from the longtime gay hangout Dreams into Pan, the live-music club that morphed into Spaceland in the mid-1990s. Although its narrow stage has hosted many notable national and international performers, including Dead Moon, Of Montreal, the Buzzcocks, Death Cab for Cutie, Pavement, Supergrass, the Detroit Cobras and Love With Arthur Lee, the venue is synonymous with the Silver Lake music scene, launching such crucial local indie icons as Beck, Local Natives, Possum Dixon, Silversun Pickups and Elliott Smith. The club has booked everyone from the Melvins and Foster the People to Le Butcherettes and Booker T. Jones. The Satellite has a full bar, and there's a separate bar (with a pool table) that's walled off from the rest of the club with see-through plastic like the Cone of Silence. Monday nights are generally no cover. Most shows begin at 9 p.m. Ages 21 & older. The bar has a small adjoining lot with valet parking, and street parking is also available, but read the posted signs, as some neighboring streets have zealously enforced permit-parking restrictions.

    2906 Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90026
    323-663-9636

    http://www.thesilverlakelounge.com For many years, this longtime Silver Lake bar has presented transgender Latino shows. The cozy, narrow bar is dark, the small stage is low, and the sound system is basic, but the club's iconic neon "Salvation" sign has beckoned adventurous groups for more than a decade, including Metric, Nellie McKay, Les Baton Rouge, Wye Oak, Liz Pappademas and Mr. Gnome. Indie-rock promoters the Fold were based here for many years before giving away to other booking agents. Seating is available at the bar and on a long bench along the wall, with Chinese lanterns giving the dimly lit room a little bit of festive color. Full bar. Ages 21 & over. Parking available in a small adjoining lot and on the street. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

    323-666-4268

    http://www.trepanyhouse.org Tucked into Los Feliz's Center for Inquiry-West, the Trepany House at the Steve Allen Theater is an intimate performing venue that presents a wide array of concerts, plays, vaudeville and comedy. When the theater first began putting on shows, it focused on comedians like Dana Gould, Emo Philips, Mary Lynn Rajskub and Kids in the Hall, as well as theatrical productions and esoteric philosophical and metaphysical explorations by everyone from NASA scientists to members of the Church of Satan. Before long, the theater also brought in live musicians, including the daft ragtime diva Janet Klein, Lavender Diamond and the charming pop duo the Ditty Bops mingling with harder-edged sounds from Rancid and Dethklok. Added to the mix is the center's ongoing fascination with horror and film culture, with presentations and screenings by the likes of Toby Hooper, Joe Dante, David Cronenberg, Miranda July and James Franco. In homage to its namesake inspiration, the late comedian Steve Allen, the theater is an unusual nexus point of scientific curiosity and vaudevillian variety.

  • Taix French Restaurant

    Taix French Restaurant

    1911 Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90026
    213-484-1265

    http://www.taixfrench.com The Taix family has been running this French restaurant since 1927, and in this location as a virtual Echo Park landmark since the early 1960s. There are six banquet rooms, as well as a 21-&-over live-music bar. For all of the European elegance of the banquet rooms, it's in the restaurant's 321 Lounge that Taix feels warmest and homiest. In recent years, the bar's humble floor-level stage in front of a simple brick-wall backdrop has borne witness to a surprising diversity of crucial local musicians, ranging from straight-ahead country-rock dreamers to truly out-there funk-jazz experimentalists. Low-key indie rock bands trade off with raging instrumental surf combos, followed by sweet pure-pop balladeers. As wild as the music sometimes get, the restaurant has a contrastingly traditional and continental ambiance, due in large part to a menu that's heavy on rustic French fare like duck a la orange, braised rabbit, butterflied trout, onion soup and escargot. Naturally, with such a fervent Francophile emphasis, the restaurant and full bar uncork a broad selection of fine French wines. Valet parking is available in Taix's lot, and metered parking can be found on the street. No cover. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>
