Nothing exciting about the his place but the name. Closed during the day and not even a peek inside permitted. At night not much going on early evening on a Wednesday. Drinks over priced but can say I've seen it.

I flew to LA to see The Suburbs play at Whiskey-a-Go-Go. Had never been to the infamous club and was excited to check it out. The band sounded great and the room was full of dancing fans - great show, great atmosphere!!

I was so excited to see the Whiskey. I’ve waited 35 years for this, though my husband has been here several times in the past. We both love the history. We wanted a quick drink before dinner and had to pay $20 each to get...More

We caught a Rolling Stones tribute show. What a fun time! The 3+ hour set included more than 20 musicians who switched out from song to song. Leif Garrett sang (blast from the past), as did several other musicians from bands like Whitesnake, Natalie Merchant,...More
