Legendary venue right here even though its not the greatest in terms of lightning ,sound and space its great to see new bands and big bands as well .. I've seen huge artists like slash and Aerosmith play here and its so much better to have them really close and personal than seeing them from far away at a better venue.

I've never been to the Whisky to see a show...only to play shows for others with previous bands I've been in. This place has so much history and it's weird to think of all the bands that have blessed this stage. The staff at The Whisky have always been easy to deal with for me and my bands...maybe because we're not assholes. For small local touring bands, this place is a pay-to-play spot. You have to sell a number of tickets to get a slot. We opened up for Powerman 5000 and a few other bands there and it didn't seem too much of a problem to sell a few tickets and get some people there to see you. The sound is pretty good and the sound guy was cool enough to let me use my vocal processor (not a lot of venues like that). All in all it was a great night and everything went off without a hitch. Tip: Go up a block to The Rainbow Room for pre-show shenanigans!

I hate to sound like an old hag, but is it always standing only? I mean I know, you come here to watch shows, you might be on your feet anyway, but I don't like dealing with cutters and random people prancing around me. I want my own darned space bubble. Also - is there designated parking? Or should I just circle around for a bit figuring it out? Also - is there reason why plastic drink cups of barely-there liquor are so pricey? C'man man. I don't know - maybe I'm just not hip as the cool cats these days, but I steadily wished for a better venue than this. Old, in need of renovations/improvements, and quite a few other things - I'll skip a show here the next time a friend asks. My old lady butt enjoys a space bubble and a decent drink.

This place has such history. You cannot believe the performers in the past that have gone on to fame and furtune after performing here. I was surprised at how large this club was compared to what I expected. The servers here was fairly friendly. Overall a great experience for the historical hollywood.

I wouldn't say this is the greatest venue in town, but it is definitely worth coming for a show every once in a while. Minimal, reserved seating on the ground floor. Not sure about the seating situation upstairs. I'm no stranger to venues with cement floors, but for some reason, the night we were here to see My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, I was very uncomfortable. I felt a lot of pressure in my back, so be mindful if you have any back/lower body problems.

Great setting for Local Bands. Good sound and environment! Looking forward to June 24th with Fozzy and Local Band Eyes of One featuring Casey Moss and Andy Weissberg!
