This place is rad! A small
neighborhood hangout for locals and tourists, good prices, pool table and live music. Near Universal City. Small bar area that gets busy but the bartenders rock, has outdoor seating and a couple other nooks for hanging out with small groups too. Seen some good music here, check the calendar though, genres vary. Caught some great regular bands there last month; Max Mueller, The Arroyo and Last American Cowboy all made for a great night. Original Rock and Roll and Indie music that kept me there all night. Cool place, patio closes early though. Check it out!
This isn't a bad place to hang out, but it could be a lot better. For one thing, they play the music way too loud. I have nothing against loud music, but when the band isn't that good and it's obvious no one really cares what they're doing, then take it down a few notches. Otherwise, you're going to drive people away. Also, they really should utilize their patio more. It's just sort of mindlessly stuck over to the side when it really ought to be emphasized, especially in the summer. Parking could be better, and they should lower their cover charges--they'd get more industry types who work near by.
