Weekends Amateurs-- Stay home and let the locals have our bar back!!! – I've been to Skinnys on almost every night of the week at least once, and I have to say that I dig the week day crowd better. It's way more chill and has a local feel. The staff is super cool and I have never seen a fight break out there during the week. I personally, think that weekends misrepresent the bar and it's normal clientele. It seems like amateur night and the place is packed to the brim with them!! Week days at skinnys are where it's at!
definitely only for losers – Lame music, rude stuff and fat chicks...not my type of bar!!! Don't recommend it to anyone...lost 2 hours of my life there....
Fun time – I went to Skinny's for the first time on Saturday night - one of my friends lives in walking distance, so why not?
I'm used to paying $10-$20 to park when you party in Hollywood, so this was a treat. Drinks are cheaper than hollywood, so that's a plus. Bar staff was really cool, not like the attitud you get in hollywood bars. We danced all night. DJ didn't mix, but music was fun.
The best part is that we could stumble back to her place instead of drive. We had a great time and will be back. Complaints - really hot on dance floor
the worst place in the history of bars!!! – This is the worst place in the history of bars. I came there with my husband on a Friday night. Then I left my husband at the bar to go to the bathroom. Immediately one bouncer started picking up on me. I told very politely that I'm not interested but he kept grabbing me so I pushed him away. After that he grabbed me and kicked me out of the club. To make things worse he completely refused to tell my husband who had my purse with the keys from the car and phone in it. I kept insisting for him to read more >go and call my husband. I was so upset I made a rude comment after that he handcuffed me and called the police. He lied the police that I almost broke his nose and asked his friend to be a witness. I ended up spending 12 hours in jail and with bail of 20000 we had to pay 2000 out of our pocket. Now me and my husband are trying to press charges. We talked to the owner of the club but after reviewing the cameras and admitting that I never touched the bouncer he basically told us that it is not his problem. There are going to be civil and hopefully criminal charges against this bouncer and this place. The owner already told us that his lawer is going to make sure we wouldn't be able to prove anything but hopefully the truth will be uncovered in the court. So if you are a hot girl my advice to you is to stay away from this place if you don't want to end up in jail for rejecting a bouncer!!!
selectively omitted information – Interesting how "thisizreal" neglected to mention other details - let's see!
Would this be the same woman who one security guard had to remove from the MEN'S restroom,
who then proceeded to strike another security guard in the face, which resulted in her being handcuffed in front of the bar?? hmmm
Buck 10 or not - when you strike someone, regardless of gender, then you had better expect repercussions for your actions! Personally, I'd say she got off easy, as the security guard exercised restraint and merely handcuffed her. Thus displaying that - DUH - you don't go around slugging people.
Chicks think that they can just slug guys without any consequences, because guys aren't supposed to raise a hand girls - maybe one of these days, she'll learn her lesson when she's drunk in a club - slugs someone, then gets knocked out. Only time will tell.
In my experience at Skinny's - the security guys have been quick to remove unruly people, and have actually helped me out with some jerks on a certain occasion, so if anything - people should feel safe there. It's just a shame that when some little "slugger" decides to undermine authority, and she' s reprimanded for it - that we should look at her as the victim.
Not what it used to be – I used to thoroughly enjoy going to this bar, but it has changed for the worst. I will probably never go back there again.
Wackest D.J. of all time!! True for reals!! – Nice bar and naughty looking ladies to go home with. It's ok but the damn D.J. STINKS!!!!!! Can't mix sh*t and thinks he's the sh*t!! Don't know how the hell he got the job but i think my friend can do a better job and he's deaf!! Now they charge at door $5.00!!
Skinny's?? Really, it doesn't represent the crowd – If you have NOTHING else better to do, I'd suppose you might stroll by. The club looks nice online, the name definitely doesn't represent the crowd because you woulda thought you were standing at KFC with all the big girls. The D.J. sucked - NO mixing skills...I wondered who even told the guy "hey you should totally pursue being a D.J." I couldn't even believe people would actually wait in line on Lankershim after 10pm to go into this place. Seriously C- at best.
LIVE BAND KARAOKE! You heard me...LIVE BAND KARAOKE on Sunday nights from 9:00-1:00pm!! – Okay! My friend and I had NO idea what to expect and ventured out to Skinny's last night to try out LIVE BAND KARAOKE with Mark and his band! WOW! We were pretty much expecting a dive kind of bar but what we got was a really nice, clean updated lounge (it TRULY was lounge-adjective worthy!) with great upholstered benches, leather cylinder seats, tables, and a friendly group of clientele!
The drinks were reasonable but the big draw, let's face it, was Mark and his band! Crystal fronts the band as the vocalist with Mark on Lead Guitar, Ken on Drums, and Brad on Bass!! A CHILL group of musicians with warmth and vitality! Not only will we be back, I've booked my 50th with these guys! They ROCKED the house!
The only thing I wish they had was some kind of munchy--but as long as you eat before going, you're cool!
Thanks for a great time!
A little Hollywood in NoHo – I love this place. The staff is great. Whether it is Eric, Nikki or Mike at the bar or Freddy and George at the door, I am always greeted with a smile and a hug.
Weekends get a little crazy, but the muscle in the front (Freddy, George and Dre), are not only nice to look at, but keep the place under control.
