Every Saturday they host an event called Dance Yourself Clean. If you dig music similar to LCD sound system then I can guarantee you that you will absolutely love this no-frills dance party. And yes, they always play Dance Yourself Clean at some point.

Amazing food, killer cocktail list, and solid location, the Rockwell is a cut above the rest. But the real kicker here is that Jeff Goldblum & the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra plays every Wednesday. (Yes. Dr. Ian Malcom. THAT Goldblum) After (or before) you go to Rockwell also walk around Vermont. Pick up something to read at Skylight books, or go see a movie at the Los Feliz Theater. There are also a few other restaurants like Fred 62, or Starfish that are worth checking out if you're not sure what you're in the mood for.

Great place to let loose on a Saturday night. Live music and casual vibe make it a great place to meet new people or mob in with a group of friends.

Tucked away in Griffith Park, the Greek Theater is an outside amphitheater that's like the little sister to the Hollywood Bowl. Much smaller at only 6k capacity, the Greek is more intimate, surrounded by huge trees, has great sound, and always provides a happy night. Catching Radiohead here on a warm summer night a few years back is one of my favorite live music memories. Pro Tip: there may or may not be a secret hike nearby where you can catch the show sans ticket.

The best music venue in Los Angeles. Check to see who is playing. It's a small intimate space and all of the singer-songwriter greats have played here. A gem.

Great atmosphere at this bar, music venue, patio and all around chill spot. Imagine fire pits and airstream trailers converted into a bar and a restaurant.

Down the street from the outside of Paddy's Pub in It's Always Sunny, this bar has a great vibe, great cocktails, and great music. What else could you want? It's super artsy with vintage decor. There is a mezzanine level but it's always rented out, so you're lucky if you get to check that part out. It's also mostly outdoor seating with heat lamps. OH and they have food, but to be honest I've never had it. But the menu looks bomb!

The Peppermint Club is a swanky bar with a focus on the small stage where they have intimate performances almost every night. Their partnership with Interscope ensures that some of the best up and coming artists perform, and often super stars will pop in for a quick show if they are in town. In a world of manufactured nightclubs where they feel the same no matter what city you're in, The Peppermint Club is a total breath of fresh air that embraces the insane talent in this city.

I am a huge fan of hotel bars, and Culver Hotel doesn't disappoint. Couches and live jazz music every night. Plus, they are playing some old movies on the wall at all times. A bit cheesy, but also kinda cute and fun. Great place for a second date.
