Bring your Entourage – This is a great place to have a night out with your friends. Cute friendly bartenders dressed like nurses. Laid back locals. Chill atmosphere.
Hurts so good – Saw a band perform here..and there was great beer. I rhymed.
Cool concept/ great service – I came into Good Hurt on a Saturday night not knowing what to expect. I’ve lived in Culver City for two years, always drove by this place but never cared to stop in. One of my friend’s band was performing here and we came to support. I actually enjoyed myself! The music gets pretty loud so it was smart of them to have an earplug dispenser. Apparently all the bartenders wear black nurse outfits as their uniform. You would think the whole nurse concept would be played out but it was actually super cute and tastefully done. The girl that was our bartender was awesome!! She made the drinks strong and was very sweet. They have two pool tables that kept us entertained until your friends played. Only have vodka, tequila, beer and wine for their alcohol selection (GREAT beer selection though). I had a lot of fun here. Chill vibe, great staff and cool concept. I’ll definitely come back when I get another chance. I recommend this place to anyone who loves live music and hot bartenders.
Great Bar – Went on a Saturday night and had a lot of fun. There were a lot of hot girls and the live bands rocked. This is my new hangout and I've introduced some friends to the place who all really liked it as well. Great vibe and friendly staff.
Good Local Bar – I don't know about it being a nightclub or hot spot, but I'm a local and I end up there fairly often and always enjoy myself. There's nearly always live music (some good, some not so) and the bartenders are nice.
The music can get a little loud, but this bar has a little earplug dispenser which is amazing and I love them for it.
Beer/Wine/Tequila/Vodka only, but that works for me.
Pool tables and a dance floor, booths and the bar... the set up is nice and the crowd is varied. No complaints from me.
Best Club in the Westside – As a veteran clubgoer, I really appeciate how this spot balances a hip, unique vibe without ever feeling "too exclusive". They always seem to have great music, and the crowd is always interesting and friendly.
Almost Empty, Lousy Band, Cover – We heard a good review from a female friend and decided to check it out. We went on a Saturday night and had to pay a cover even though there wasnt a line. We did and it turns out there was no one inside either. The only attractive girls were the bartenders, and they were very friendly (probably because an empty bar means no tips). The bands that played werent very good. The decor is very nice, but there needs to be lots of young attractive people before this bar will be worth another visit. And seriously, if theres no crowd, why do you have a cover?
Definately a PPO! – Well, its definately not what I had hoped for in the "great" LA area! The whole hot lips hollihan nurse gimmick lasted about 15mins...Sure the nurse bartender is nice to look at , but after awhile she's just another blonde in LA! She took off at 1am...at least she could've offered to have a pic taken with the guys before. Being from the OC, girls like that are a D.A.D ! Bar is difficult to find, and in the barrio! . Bands are lame (Exept one...ka) and BTW , who books after 11pm on a weekday?!? Not even one 1:45'er to salvage the night!
Total WOT...go to redondo beach
Worthwhile to check out – A gem in the otherwise desolate land between santa monica and culver city. The Good Hurt proves to be a solid location for listening to local bands and smaller bands touring through los angeles. The booths are relaxing and the bartenders dressed in naughty nurses outfits actually works; no hard alcohol here but they have a low percentage versions of vodka and tequilla, which the nurses will use to fill various house perscriptions. Check out their website for links to the upcoming bands.
this place has promise – Went to Good Hurt last night for the first time - they really did this place up! Cool setup - dancefloor in front of the stage, several couchy chill areas, smoking patio, pool tables with good sightlines to the stage, same with sightlines from the bar area. Bands there every night - go support live music! I can't wait to go back in a few months when it's hopping.
