    Akbar

    4356 Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90029
    323-665-6810

    http://www.akbarsilverlake.com Silver Lake's Moroccan-themed gay grotto is a long-running fave, as much for its stiff, reasonably priced drinks as for its vivacious, open-to-all atmosphere. When the adjacent dance room was added a few years ago, it became a full-fledged club. The dark and sweaty pit pumps and pulsates on weekends thanks to dynamic electro/disco mixes from local DJs. Expect a bevy of boho bi and gay grinders in the mix mostly on weekends, and local of all ilks during the week - even crafters (!), who take over with an early gathering every Wednesday. More >>

    323-254-2579

    http://www.allstarlanesbowling.com All Star Lanes is an iconic Eagle Rock bowling alley, located on Eagle Rock Boulevard. The spacious mid-century interior doesn't look like it's been updated since the day it opened, but it holds 22 lanes for all levels of rollers, plus a bar in the back to keep things lively. There are pool tables and arcade games for the kids, plus the best glow-in-the-dark bowling you'll find anywhere. Lanes run $4/game on weeknights and $6 on weekends, but the cheap drinks ensure you won't end up spending too much. There's also an occasional free comedy show held near the bar, called the 4 & 20 show, which features some of the best comedians working in L.A. today. More >>

    323-245-6400

    http://www.amoeba.com The hangar-size emporium, the sister store to two locations in the Bay Area, has an awe-inspiring selection of music, DVDs and posters and is also the site of free in-store concerts. Solomon Burke, the Flaming Lips, Patti Smith, Paul Westerberg, Neko Case, PJ Harvey, the Raconteurs, Ceci Bastida and Paul McCartney are among the many performers who've played on Amoeba's small stage.

    Bigfoot Lodge

    3172 Los Feliz Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90039
    323-662-9227

    http://www.bigfootlodge.com With wild, woodsy décor, cheap PBR, great DJ nights and a punkish, fun crowd Bigfoot is a lodge for the rock n' roll lush set. Toasted marshallow and cookie drinks, barmaids in girl scout uniforms and kitchsy touches like a giant Smokey the Bear statue, a Sasquatch sign and faux fireplace contribute to the camp-y theme, and the place is popular with vintage car clubs, bikers from the nearby Harley Davidson shop in Glendale and rockabilly types, making for frequent smats of tats, hairgel and red lips, especially on weekends. Hot nights include "Rock n' Roll Karaoke" (a celebration of riff-heavy sounds and bad vox rules Mondays) and "Psychotonic!" Thursdays, a night of trashy retro sounds and vintage film oddities.

  • Bootleg Theater

    Bootleg Theater

    2200 Beverly Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90057
    213-389-3856

    http://ticketURL: https://bootlegtheater.secure.force.com/ticket Based in a former 1930s warehouse, this brick-walled performance space hosts music, theater, dance and film events in a medium-size theater, which is adjoined by a more bare-bones bar, where indie-rock musicians are booked by the local promoters the Fold. Broken Bells, Joseph Arthur, Joan as Police Woman, the Living Sisters, David Kilgour, LA Font, Cass McCombs, Nicole Eva Emery, Funeral Party, Dan Stuart, Light FM and many other local and international musicians have ensconced themselves in the Bootleg. The beer and wine bar specializes in such bottled beers as La Fin du Monde and Delirium Tremens, alongside tap favorites like Manifesto and Golden Chaos.

  • The Cat Club

    The Cat Club

    8911 Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90069
    310-657-0888

    http://www.thecatclubonsunset.com Stray Cats drummer Slim Jim Phantom runs this West Hollywood saloon, so it should be no surprise that many of his celebrity pals often show up to jam. Hard rock, acoustic and indie-rock bands are usually featured, but the bookings also reflect Mr. Phantom's passion for roots, country and rockabilly combos. House band the Lonely Drunks Club cranks it up every Saturday with stellar special guests, and drinks are half-priced daily at happy hour, from 7-8 p.m. Unlike other clubs on the Sunset Strip, the Cat Club is intimate and more like a neighborhood bar than a slick music emporium. The club includes a full bar, an upstairs VIP room, a pro soundboard and even an outdoor smoking patio surrounded by palm trees. Bands tend to use the venue's in-house Blackstar amps and back line, so setup times between groups are usually short and well organized. Ages 21 & over. More >>

  • Catalina Bar & Grill

    Catalina Bar & Grill

    6725 W. Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90028
    323-466-2210

    http://www.catalinajazzclub.com Catalina Bar & Grill is one of Los Angeles' top jazz clubs, even if it's housed in a decidedly non-glamorous red-brick edifice that looks like a generic Hollywood office building. Once you're inside, though, after entering through the garage in back, the spacious room is much more inviting, with tables decked out in elegant white tablecloths pressed up against a low stage in front of a red velvet curtain. The walls are tastefully decorated with paintings and photos of legendary jazz musicians, and the landmark venue has hosted some of the biggest names in traditional, mainstream jazz, including Chick Corea, Ella Fitzgerald, McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Scott, Pharoah Saunders, Jane Monheit, Roy Hargrove, Carmen McRae, Joe Zawinul, Joshua Redman, the Marsalis brothers, and an impressive variety of stellar Carters (Ron, Betty, Benny and even Wonder Woman's Lynda). It's a great place to hear music, although the drinks, admission, valet parking and cover minimums can be quite pricey. The kitchen serves similarly expensive entrees, including trout almondine and shrimp scampi pasta, but most visitors come for the live music instead of the food. All ages. Full bar. More >>

    Club Fais Do-Do

    5257 W. Adams Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90016
    323-931-4636

    http://www.faisdodo.com Fais Do-Do is a Cajun dance party, as well as a phrase used by mothers to tell their infants to go to sleep. The Mid-City nightclub Fais Do-Do is very much a raging Cajun dance party, and a whole lot more besides, with its large bar and adjoining ballroom hosting a dizzying array of music and theater events. Based in a former bank building that was built in an Art Deco style in 1930, the club is now one of the main centers of nightlife in the Mid-City area once known as the Sugar Hill District. In the past, stellar musicians like John Coltrane, Billy Preston and the late Sam Cooke used to hang out here. More recently, a wide variety of influential rappers (including Scarub and 2Mex), Latin rockers (Quetzal), and world, jazz and blues musicians have made their mark on its stage. A large dance floor gives way to a wooden stage in the corner. A balcony above the bar looks down on the dance floor and toward the stage. The bar serves beer and wine, and the age limit is usually 21 & over. Street parking available. More >>

    http://www.dolbytheatre.com This "crown jewel" of the Hollywood & Highland complex is best known as the home of the Academy Awards, but the 3,332-seat theater is also the site of many other awards shows, pop concerts, theatrical productions and dance events. Prince, the Dixie Chicks, Barry Manilow, Alicia Keys, John Fogerty and Stevie Wonder are among the musicians who've played at the Hollywood Boulevard theater. Designed by the Rockwell Group and opened in 2001, the lavish theater features a five-level lobby, a spiral staircase and dome. Originally known as Kodak Theatre, the place was renamed Dolby Theatre in 2012. More >>

  • Dragonfly

    Dragonfly

    6510 Santa Monica Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90038
    323-466-6111

    http://www.thedragonfly.com This longtime Hollywood bar has always been a rock & roll mainstay, but it also hosts frequent comedy and theatrical revues, including the ongoing "Point Break Live," a comedic parody of the old Keanu Reeves film. Other entertainment ranges from drum-&-bass nights, jello wrestling and "Rebel Fucking Bingo" to burlesque and "Natalie Fabia's Hooker Pageant." The Buzzcocks, the Spazmatics and Abby Travis are among the many performers who've appeared on the Dragonfly's stage. A large painting of a temptress with large dragonfly wings dominates the backdrop of the stage and serves as the club's logo, while a long wooden bar runs along one side of the room. Large mirrors on the walls give the club a sense of Tinseltown elegance and opens up the dark space. In total, the Dragonfly has four full bars operating, especially on busy weekend nights. There's also a brick-walled back patio for those looking for a breath of fresh air and a rare glimpse of a different kind of Hollywood stars. Full bar. Ages 21 & up. More >>

    The Echoplex

    1154 Glendale Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90026
    213-413-8200

    http://www.attheecho.com The Echoplex is physically connected to its upstairs neighbor, the Echo, but it's so much larger and into its own thing that it has a separate back-alley entrance and a different street address. Reggae, hip-hop, funk, LGBT and other dance nights trade off with live concerts. Regular events include L.A.'s best reggae night, Dub Club, which often features legendary names straight out of Jamaica. The large stage, full sound system and dark lighting make the Echoplex an appropriate venue for big concerts, as well as spoken-word slams, beer and wine tastings, and even rollerskating. Musicians who've performed at the Echoplex include Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds, Heartless Bastards, Wire, Au Revoir Simone, Big Youth, Holly Beth Vincent, T.S.O.L., Puro Instinct, Ximena Sarinana, Dntel, the Sadies and the Adolescents.

  • El Cid

    El Cid

    4212 W. Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90029
    323-668-0318

    http://www.elcidla.com Circa 1900, legendary filmmaker D.W. Griffith built what is currently known as Silver Lake restaurant and club El Cid. Years later, he used the venue to screen his highly controversial Birth of a Nation. Rumor has it moviegoers were charged two bucks to see the flick, an outrageous price in those days, so you can imagine what those same audiences would think today if they could walk down El Cid's uneven stairs and order a $30 margarita. Assuming their heads didn't explode upon viewing the drink menu, they'd discover that the cost of the beverage comes from the inclusion of Don Julio 1942 (because it can't be the Grand Marnier, lime juice or sweet-and-sour). Then again, if the people of the early 1900s could sample tequila from the 1940s, they'd be sipping away while daydreaming about flying cars and hover boards, because that's what humans do when we fantasize about the future. This historic Spanish-style restaurant is perched elegantly on the western edge of Silver Lake, with airy patios and a garden. Entertainment includes flamenco, dinner theater, comedy and live music.

    323-936-6400

    http://www.theelrey.com Located on the Miracle Mile in the Mid-Wilshire district, the El Rey is indeed something of an architectural miracle. Designed by the noted architect Clifford A. Balch in 1936, the art deco venue boasts a Streamline Moderne design, with sleek contours and a classically elegant exterior and interior. For more than 60 years, it was used mainly as a movie theater, but in 1994 it was reconfigured as a live-music concert hall. Since then, the room, which holds about 700 people, has hosted such diverse musicians as Iggy Pop, Neko Case, Radio Birdman, Wanda Jackson & Jack White, Buzzcocks, the Dresden Dolls, Wire, Emmylou Harris, Mission of Burma and the Avengers. An upstairs VIP balcony looks down over the grand ballroom, which is sided by plush red walls and illuminated by several gigantic glass chandeliers. The all-ages venue usually features standing-room admission, with a few booths located along the sides. The ballroom has a full bar, and another full bar is based in the venue's fancy art deco lobby, which includes a dramatic staircase that leads to the balcony. Street parking, plus paid parking in a lot across the street. More >>

  • The Fonda Theatre

    The Fonda Theatre

    6126 Hollywood Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90028
    323-464-0808

    http://www.goldenvoice.com/search/?q=Fonda%20Theatre&vid=262 The longtime Hollywood theater first opened in 1926 as the Carter DeHaven Music Box Theatre and featured such legendary performers as Fanny Brice, Jean Harlow, Clark Gable, James Cagney and Marlene Dietrich. In the ensuing decades, the theater had several name changes and reappeared in various incarnations. In the 1980s, the Spanish Colonial-style venue was renamed as the Henry Fonda Theater before undergoing renovations and reopening in the 2007 as the Music Box at the Fonda. In 2010, the name was shortened to the Music Box after the place was refurbished with glittery new fixtures and mural-size classical-style paintings. In 2012, there was yet another change, with the local concert promoters Goldenvoice taking over the Music Box and renaming it the Fonda Theatre. Currently, the Fonda hosts concerts, dance nights, awards shows and special events. The Kills, Gogol Bordello, Cults, the Dresden Dolls, Gang of Four, Ariel Pink, Os Mutantes, Television, Concrete Blonde, Jenny & Johnny, the New York Dolls and Turbonegro are among the diverse musicians who've graced the theater's large stage. Smoking is permitted only on the upstairs outdoors patio. The theater has several full bars. All ages. Street and lot parking. More >>
