Los Angeles has always been somewhat of a mecca for musicians. If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere, right? Clubs come and go, but this one seems to have immortalized its legacy. With a lively mix of rock, world music, acoustic, and indie pop, this small Santa Monica dive is not to be missed. The stage is open to anyone who believes they can prove themselves in front of the demanding crowd. There are also pole-dance revues and burlesque performances regularly.
