This storied club has a rich musical history: Randy Newman got his start here, and Elton John made his US debut on its stage in 1970. It hasn't lapsed into irrelevance in the time since, often showcasing bands on the rise: Interpol, Joss Stone and Franz Ferdinand all played early US shows here. The sound is great and the views are decent from almost anywhere in the room—just stay out from under the balcony.

Hands down, my favorite L.A. concert venue. Small, relatively cheap and in a safe neighborhood. What more could I ask for? Just saw Allen Stone here last night, but have seen dozens of shows here in the past decade. The facilities aren't the best, but if you're endgame is a great musical experience, this is where it's at. All kinds of musicians play here too, which makes it pretty accessible for fans of all genres. 


One of my favorite venues in LA, by far. Small enough to feel intimate, but big & "professional" enough to get some great acts and shows. I've seen some excellent gigs here in my time in LA - bands that are both small and bigger. Always a personal and authentic experience in my opinion - definitely beats many of the bigger venues in the city in terms of getting an intimate experience. You can see & hear well from pretty much anywhere. Follow in the footsteps of a zillion great bands and fans -- see a show here. You definitely won't regret it.

The Troubadour is a legendary venue having hosted some of the most epic names in music. Coming here is always a treat and I would've given it five stars if it weren't for the fact that it's all the way in WeHo with almost no parking available.
