If you love seeing bands in small, intimate venues (as I do) The Troubadour is one of the best places in LA to do so. Came here for the first time in MANY years a few weeks ago to catch 80s/90s hard rockers Fu Manchu and it made me wonder why I don't come here more often. I think that's about to change, as I've been getting out to see more shows of late and a lot of bands I'm interested in do come through here. It IS tiny and it IS a pain in the ass to park around there but you can't beat getting super up close and personal with the band. The vibe is chill, the bartenders are nice and the drink prices seemed reasonable (if you can make it back there when the crowd is at its peak).

The venue is alright, in need of serious updating. The kitchenette is small and unkempt-- the woman named Ruby who was working in there totally lit up a Capri and smoked it behind a little pop-out door. Unprofessional and unsanitary. Fix that sh*t. Oh and very overpriced for frozen food--- small portions of frozen food.

When I go to concerts, I prefer smaller venues and the Troubadour offers that. Between the dance floor, the bar, and the small sitting area upstairs it can't fit more than a hundred. The only complaint is the bar and the kitchen can take an eternity to get the simplest things.

Dope la music venue with sooo much history! Been to so many shows here and never a bad spot/view. Drinks are cheap, bartenders and friendly and the sound is great out here. Catch all the upcoming bands before they get big here. Ive seen Rudimental, Icona Pop, and more here for 12$ a show before they went onto worldwide tours in wayyy bigger venues. Catch the next big thing here before anyone else does. Great staff and venue!

Checked it out because of G&R. Saw an awesome bad! Mostly standing room only, some spots around the bar. Drinks were priced right. We were hungry, relieved that they offered food options, very reasonably priced. Staff was nice, even though busy. Bathroom, was small and messy, typical for a busy bar. Great sound, great atmosphere, it wasn't too packed. Might not be as fun if it is packed. We really liked the lounge out front, the AC was great and it was a nice spot to sit and chill, when needed a break from the crowd. Could still see the band through the awesome window. Loved the memorabilia on the wall. You could just hang out in the lounge if you are tourist, and just want to pop in and avoid the cover. We took the bus here, stop is right out front.

The Troubadour has been around forever and is still an amazing place to go see shows. I saw the Wombats here and it was just so much fun to be in such a small place listening to a great band. I almost felt like a teenager again. The bottom part of the venue is for wanting to get close to the stage and for standing. The top half you can sit or stand and is just nicer to get away from the big crowds. You know, great for an old lady like me :) If you have a band you love and they are playing here I highly suggest you get tickets. You'll have a great time and can hang out on Santa Monica Blvd. before you go.

Really love the vibe and atmosphere of this venue. Every spot around the stage is a good spot to stand and watch your favorite artist perform. This is rare for most venues. I was lucky enough to grab the front bench upstairs for the Paolo Nutini concert that was hosted here few weeks prior. The sound system is pretty loud here, my ears were ringing a bit after leaving. I suggest bringing some of those concert earplugs that lower the decibels a bit to a comfortable listening level if sitting front and center upstairs.

Troubadour hasn't shared anything with you.

People are more likely to share with you if you add them to your circles.
