to gather and hangout with friends (and watch your friends perform). Even if I didn't know a particular artist that was performing on a certain night, I would definitely come because of the great vibes.

A hidden Hollywood gem for live music with an unassuming entrance by the alley. Love the vibe here. Great jazz & blues bands. Heard John Mayer and The Roots have played here unannounced on some occasion.

Amazing intimate venue to watch a show. Different performers on two stages throughout the night. Depending on who you're seeing there are great views everywhere and tables upfront if you're early. Shows are cheap usually under 20 and who can watch the performers after as well. Full bar is available to enjoy.

Intimate venue for life music. Always a great experience as the performers are always on point.

I saw a show here and it was a very nice venue. The acoustics were great.

I absolutely love this music venue. It's small, intimate and velvety red curtains and candles give it a very romantic feel. The acts that perform here are always top notch and the music usually leans more to acoustic or folksy. Many artists I've seen here, have gone on to gain mainstream popularity so this is definitely a spot that you can catch great bands before they hit it big and say "you saw them when."

Great place to catch up-and-coming acts. Katy Perry & John Mayer both graced the stage before their relationship was nary a thought or big record deals for that matter. Like a lot of cool spots off of Sunset it's down a nondescript dark alley. But don't be worried all the best nights in L.A. start that way.

a hidden gem!!! :D

Came here with my friend to see a very talented performer :)
My friend is a huge fan of Jane Lui (she is AAAAMAAAZING!!! please look her up) and she had her first LA show (?) at hotel cafe. She baked yummy treats for everyone!

The place is very intimate, low key, standing lounge. It's a lil hard to find and you enter from the back. It's a place to enjoy live music by talented up and coming artists.

Please show up in comfy shoes. It's dark-lit so no one will see your pretty feet, might as well be comfortable ;) There are few chairs and bar stools to sit on if you show up early.

Parking/traffic is never fun in Hollywood. Leave early so you won't be late.

Parking can be a biatch, but I love this place.
Casual, intimate, & fun.

21+, small stage, good sound, a little room away from the stage to talk (w/o having to yell), full bar (drinks are around $10), some food (bar food, sandwiches, etc.).

One of my favorite spots in LA, this is a great little music venue hidden away in the Caheunga strip in Hollywood. Mostly indie and folk rock. Dark, cozy, intimate vibe. Not too loud. Great place for a date.

Really small space. Cute for performances, it makes the acoustics better. The place looks a little sketchy. It's also really hard to find the entrance--you have to go around back. Also, they dont have very many chairs or tables, so you will probably end up standing the whole night.

A small venue that's easy to enjoy live music. It's bet and wine only.
