Excellent venue to discover new artists 5/21/2010

Largo at the Coronet is one of those places that makes you glad you live in LA. You can catch both famous and not-so-famous musicians in a friendly, intimate environment. The crowd is eclectic, tickets are easy to come by and most performances are very reasonably priced. Seating is somewhat uncomfortable but get there and hour or two early and you can snag front row seats. more

Pretentious/dull/redundant 8/15/2009

Largo at the Coronet theater and the ""little room"" is full of pretentious Hollywood music snobs who think they know everything about music. However, after a few moments you'll realize you're smashed within the tale of ""The Emperor's New Clothes"" and the people there are just being fooled into thinking this ""new hot thing"" is really something ""amaaaazing and groundbreaking""... but it's really mainly all totally redundant hipster garbage. You'll be bored stiff and you can't even buy a beer because there's no liquor license. Also you'll be forced to pay high covers, wait in lines around the building (so to passers by it looks like there's ""something going on""- yeah, you're not fooling anyone) and a bunch of people will ""oooh and ahhh"" at some mediocre overrated performer. Hollywood D list celebrities show up to be ""seen"" and look like they have good taste in music. It's all just so gross and slimy. Washed up record industry executives arrive to be spoon fed what's supposed to be hot because they're too lazy to actually think for themselves. The music is mostly '90s sounding, whiny BS or some overly pretentious free for all. I'm a prominent industry recording engineer and I've heard a lot of band's sob stories. Most of the bands I know that played there didn't get paid a dime because the owner Flanagan goaded them in for some ""big shot"" at ""Hollywood Glory."" He's really just an overrated charlatan himself that's still riding on a wave of when Fiona Apple played Largo 800 years ago. Be ready to take a long shower when you get home because you'll have to wash off your own regurgitations. Really, you should just stay home, kick off your knickers, spin some good records and make-out. You'll have a much better time. On the other hand if you're ready and willing to be a total Hollywood cliche phony Largo should be at the top of your list! Cons: expensive, overrated, dull more

Excellent music club 10/1/2007

Pros: Music, atmosphere, friendliness... did I mention the music? Cons: Getting a bit frayed, needs some new food items, more lights and less din prior to shows. more

Terrible food, overpriced, unfriendly waiter 9/9/2007

The food is awful, the waiter was rude, and you have to pay 3 separate minimums. If you get reservations for a table, you must spend $16 minimum on their bad food, you must spend a minimum $15 on drinks (this is per person), and you pay a $15 cover to get in. Pros: good music Cons: everything else more

Beware of ""Standing Room Only"" policies, and food and drink minimums!!! 9/9/2007

Went lo Largo last night to hear Jon Brion's performance, which was quite good. I was however, very uncomfortable, as I waited in line for 2 and 1/2 hours prior to getting into the club, and there was standing room only for the show. Needless to say, my feet and back ached considerably, distracting me from enjoying the show. Granted, the door man did explain the standing room only policy prior to our entering the club. But when you've already waited so long in line, you want to actually get in! more

A haven for those who truly care about music 6/15/2007

While last Friday was only my first visit to Largo, it is clear that no two evenings in this unique live music venue are the same. Largo certainly presents a case in which it pays to ""know before you go."" Unless you want to wait in line outside from as early as noon for standing space by the bar, you must have reservations far in advance. Check the online calendar regularly for updates on coming artists since there is no email list. Once you arrive and get seated you are repeatedly reminded to shut off your phone and refrain from talking during the performance, which I appreciated even more as the evening wore on. I was lucky enough to go on one of the evenings Jon Brion performed, so it was nice not to have extraneous chatter and texting bleeps taking me out of his eclectic set list of covers and original compositions. Unfortunately, the food is mediocre at best; as my friend (a veteran Largoer) put it, the bread basket is the best thing they serve. Pros: Atypically intimate music venue Cons: Sub par food more

My favorite place to hear live music! 10/10/2006

I can't say enough about this little gem of a supper club and music venue. Great acts and great atmosphere. Pros: Great performers, friendly staff Cons: The food is only average more

Perfect place to see a great performer! 10/10/2006

My husband and I saw Colin Hay at Largo some weeks ago and it was the best experience! First of all, he is a wonderful entertainer. Colin was funny and he sang a lot of familiar Men at Work songs, which we know and love :-) Pros: Great Seats, Cheap Eats Cons: Loud, Parking more

best place in la 4/13/2006

if youre like me, you read the bad reviews and bypass the good. but in this case, you SERIOUSLY have to ignore the bad reviews. this is by far THE BEST venue/bar ive gone to since moving here a few years ago. the staff is SO INCREDIBLY NICE and attentive. food was delicious and reasonably priced. and if you think about it, $15 for dinner is not a lot considering martinis in most bars are $10-15. the venue itself is very intimate and cozy. sound is great, music is awesome, and i honestly cant find anything wrong with it. just remember to make reservations. if the show is booked like ours was (it was aimee mann so go figure), get there early and try to snag a table if there are any cancellations. i HIGHLY recommend going to the largo and i myself plan on going back again and again. Pros: awesome staff, intimate , great music more

The Wondrous Jon Brion 8/21/2005

After making dinner reservations well in advance, we were seated right next to the stage. The menu selection is very limited: you choose between five items, all of which cost $15.00. The food wasn't bad, kind of had a dinner-theater feel to it. But the reason to go is to see the musical genious that is Jon Brion. Mr. Brion is a remarkable entertainer, combining sampling, piano, sound effects, guitars and drums to form very listenable tunes. However, the best part of the night was his choice of guests including the lovely but unfortunately forgotten Fiona Apple. Ms. Apple sang a few songs before departing and hearing her bluesy voice was surely a treat. Overall, a perfect place to bring a date that you're trying to impress, especially one who you don't have much in common with as there is a strict no-talking policy during the four hours of music. more

A Fun But Trendy Club 3/22/2005

It's dark, it's tiny, and the food is overpriced, but for an evening out to enjoy some wonderful music it really is fantastic. The first impression I had was ""how on earth can anyone fit on that little stage?"", but it posed no problem for the acts. You can sit at the bar and have the same view as if you were seated for dinner. The staff was attentive, and the street parking wasn't too bad. The main problem I've found in other intimate venues is that the mixer has no idea how to balance for a smaller room - it's usualy presented at a level that could tear your face off. That's not the case here. Their people know how to balance for size. To get an overall impression of how cool it would be to have an artist perform in your living room - Largo is it. Pros: Intimate, Dark Cons: Parking, Expensive more

Great shows 1/26/2004

I've been to Largo several times and I always have a great time. Good food - a bit pricey for what you get, but tasty - and great shows. Performers such as Jill Sobule, Simon Townshend, Paul F. Tompkins, and, of course, Naked Trucker. Intimate spot to catch some more eclectic artists. Make sure to make a reservation if you want to get a table for the show you want to see, otherwise, you may be standing in back, near the bar, for a couple of hours. Pros: Good Atmos, Pleasant Staff, Great Acts Cons: Parking - but it's LA more

The worst staff in Los Angeles. 10/25/2003

In all my years of dining in Los Angeles I have never encountered a more rude, arrogant, and hostile staff than I have at the Largo. I cannot warn you strongly enough to avoid this establishment at all costs. My guests and I were literally insulted by the staff and treated to what was easily the worst service of any restraunt or bar I have ever been to. This is the sort of place that gives Los Angeles a bad name. On top of that the food is an inedible disaster. It is unfortunate that interesting musical acts occasionaly choose to play at this establishment, but there is no act worth subjecting yourself to the horrible insulting staff of the Largo for. Pros: Good music Cons: Terrible staff, Poory prepared food more

Buyer Beware 2/26/2003

Ive been patronizing Largo for 3 years and in that time I have seen the prices of mediocre (at best) food, and cover charges skyrocket, and attitudes of the owner and wait staff plummet. No question in the talent booked at Largo, but from now on Ill chance them showing up at a different (more user friendly) venue in town. Pros: Booked Talent, Intimate venue Cons: Bad Service, Expensive/Bad Food, Expensive Cover more

Awesome, but get reservations! 8/25/2002

A wonderful place to catch live music. The good news is they really do have great performers (saw Grant Lee Phillips last night) in a very intimate setting. Bad news is how crowded it gets--the place probably holds 100-150 people max. Your best bet is to get dinner reservations--you'll have a place to sit for the evening. more

crap service 7/13/2002

The worst service I have ever had. Seriously. The rudest, most ""L.A."" staff that you will find in the city. Pros: music Cons: staff, staff, staff more

Jon Brion. Period. 6/13/2002

as if housing jon brion every friday isnt enough...every night there's a great performer at Largo. great intimate club. cheap covers for great talent (jon brion, elliot smith, aimee mann, glen phillips, et al) Pros: great shows, intimate Cons: parking more

Jon Brion's House! 5/20/2002

I've never attended any of the other Largo events, but I can testify to the quality of the Jon Brion experience. A great experience regardless of whether he brings out a special guest (Neil Finn to Sheryl Crow to Robyn Hitchcock) or simply muses on any one of the insturments on stage. Food is good, the drinks are great but you're there for the music. To that extent, please keep it quiet. Jon demands it! more

Intimate Space, Great Music 5/12/2002

Forget the LA music scene; true music lovers come here to watch good damn music. From Jon Brion to Joe Henry to a stripped-down David Garza setIve seen several great shows here and have never been disappointed. The prices are totally reasonable (esp. on weeknights!) and I love the intimate space and the seating. When I go to shows after work, its great to be able to sit down & ENJOY my beer. Be warned tho: if you make a dinner reservation and show up after 9 the management will give your seats away. more
