We were tipped by some locals to go here for live music and we were most impressed! Massive live band with multiple singers had the dance floor buzzing. Cool bar for a late night drink and boogie.

An insider tip if you want to enjoy really life music played from jung and great bands. Drinks are reasonably priced too. Be prepared to an intensive and genuine experience.

Come especially on Sundays or Thursday! Live acts here have been playing for 20 years or more, never fails to impress! Come with friends, or come solo, you are guaranteed to leave with new friends :) A modern day speakeasy come to life.

We went on a Sunday night and there happened to be a very famous jazz singer performing that night! The performance was great, there was limited seating which made it difficult to see. Cover was $10, drinks were average we thought for LA. Warning: if...More

Small and intimate but rockin' at the same time. Get up close and dance or bounce or hang back with a drink and just enjoy.. Comfortable enough to go by yourself too.

The place, energy, people, live music, reasonably priced drinks and of course the Blues is what has made this place my new favorite spot. Looking for a great time? Visit Harvelles!

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
