Where strippers go to retire. Jumbo's is something out of David Lynch and John Cassavetes movie. It's a family owned bar that is especially popular with the lady clientele who love watching the dancers. And these dancers aren't messing around - they BRING IT - always a good show. Load up on dollar bills, have a few shots of Jack Daniels, and you're guaranteed to have a good time.
Editorial Review – Located in Little Armenia of all places, this Hollywood dive turned rock-and-roll bikini bar offers a full bar, two private dance booths and occasional live music events.
not so hot – So my friend comes here on a some-what regular basis, and I have been to my share of clubs in a few states. The girls here were mostly not that hot, really not very hot I was surprised by how not hot, a lot of them had more personality and were very friendly, but the drinks were decent for LA. There was a chick that looked ok until she came up to talk to me and then I realized she was kind of old. I probably am never going back here.
NOT a strip club – Very average bar with average clothed dancers. Go go dancers at clubs and bikini clad girls at the beach are more sensual. Not sure what the appeal is here and why anyone would tip the NON-strippers. DULL. Give it a miss.
Not so great as it use to be...Now be aware of the angry drunk manager on the bullhorn – Tragically this place has taken a turn for the worst. I've gone many times and I'm beginning to think that the owners or managment has changed. The times I've gone I've had a great night, the drinks were awesome and so was the convo with the girls. But recently there's been nothing but annoying managemnt that ruin the experience. There's a short man with a gotee who gets on a bullhorn and orders people to tip and then if you don't, he throws you out. Now, I have no prob tipping and I enjoy it, but I'll be damned if some punk is going to order me around when I'm a paying customer. The guy at the door is cool, but once you get in, you best buy a drink or throw at least 5 singles on the stage or you'll get heckled by Mr. Chode. If you're looking for attractive girls who dance well, go to the Body Shop. If you're looking to be heckled over girls who can dance but aren't much to look at, go to Jumbo's. It's almost depressing to see the girls on stage, because you know they're not pulling in hardly any money, but the guy on the bullhorn isn't helping much. He just makes it so you want to leave. I miss the old days, when the girls were all Cal Arts dance majors that dropped out for rock n' roll and it wasn't such a sucky vibe.
So...the place... – This place is in a good location, famous, and free to get in. Most girls are nice, but the inside is kinda small and a bit dirty. Anyway, it's good for a group party, hang aroung with friends. They have very good shows...sometime. Don't be surprise if the waitress looks always unhappy...I don't know why, having period all the time or what??!!
Cool hangout, but you should know . . . – I really like Jumbo's; its a cool dive atmosphere, the drinks are cheap, the girls are usually interesting. One thing you should be aware of is that this is really more of a bikini bar - the girls do not take off their tops, they simply dance onstage in scanty clothing. Its cool when that's what you expect, but dont expect the more traditional far of topless women giving lap dances.
