Never Again!!!!! 4/7/2011

I personally had a horrible experience at the Joint, and I would never ever suggest this place to anyone for food. I was interested to check it out since I live in the neighborhood but My dinner took almost 40 minutes and the place had one customer so there was no excuse.. and it taste nothing .. I mean nothing.... like real Carribean food. I called to try and change my order to something else and at least give them feed back since they are fairly new, and I feel like Management could care less about my experience and kind of rude. I would not ever spend my money there again on food, maybe for a 3 buck Rum on the way out to somewhere else but that's about it.... The sound was great in the facility, However it was kind of annoying to hear some geeky looking dudes trying to sing roots music, it was actually funny but I appreciate the effort. more

Ragga Muffins 3/1/2011

Me and some friends used to go to this place when we were up for anything... because the music here was always hit or miss. Surprisingly they've seriously cleaned their act up and made some major renovations -- best part is they didn't lose the quality sound. I'll be attending more often. more

I was impressed! 3/1/2011

I walked by The joint and noticed that a few changes have been made sense the last time I was there. It is now a full on reggae club/ Caribbean style Restaurant. I decided to go in and try the dinner menu. Great FOOD and a fun atmosphere. I decided to stay to watch the live music and was surprised by the professional quality sound system and great bands. I will be back!! more

yana and kerry are the nicest bartenders and servers. i loved this spot. i danced and drank all night long. the food was amazing.. more

Extremely unprofesional promoter 10/5/2010

I'm not sure if it's the owner or the promoter that works with them but they screwed my band,Sick Six Sex, as well as themselves out of our 30+ draw. Two days before we were scheduled to play, the promoter wants to drop us from the 10pm slot to the 9pm slot, after we had already been promoting our asses off with flyers that say 10pm. So that's great, anyone coming to see us will be able to see us loading off stage after playing to 5 people that might have came early. That's not all. The son of a bitch also wants us to "tone" our music down a bit. We are a band that does NOT compromise our sound and style for anyone, especially a prick promoter that f*cks us last minute. He better pray he doesn't do that to someone on a bad day. Oh and another thing. This douche bartender gives a couple of free drinks to a girl who obviously came with me. I had a laugh at the end of the night when I found out he asked for her number and got turned down. This place will never be anything worth the time. more

Crooked Owner 4/12/2010

We gave a deposit for a birthday celebration in which the owner agreed to refund if the bar reached it's goal for the night. Closing time comes and the staff says we just made the goal. Then we get a call from the owner who says there was a "mis-count" and we get nothing back. This after we paid extra for upstairs security and not seeing anyone there all night! Owner is a cheat, dont host ANYTHING here unless you want to be out $500 Pros: has working electricity Cons: owner is a crook and went back on agreement more

Great Find 2/6/2010

Went last nite on tip....Awesome experience....Kind of funky upscale environment....Great music and sound.....Appitizers were good and service excellent....People always coming around cleaning tables and keeping exitways clear....Sophisticated crowd....upper 20's to 40's mostly.....A little hard to talk over music....but we WERE there for the music...Bartenders very attentive.....Definately will return for an inexpesive nite hear great music in a comfortable environment... Highly Recommend Pros: Music & Staff Cons: Limited Menu more

Rock It Up on Monday night! 7/19/2008

I've been going to see the Waddy Wachtel Band at the Joint on Monday nights for 8 years, and there's never been a Monday I wasn't totally thrilled. If you enjoy classic rock, this is the place to be. But BEWARE......... Citysearch lists Waddy Wachtel as playing there every Monday, but due to the heavy schedule of the band members touring with other performers, they're not at the Joint every Monday. Check out the Waddy Wachtel Band MySpace page for correct gigs. We all have lots of fun at the Joint on Mondays. It's a beautiful venue and feels more like a mini concert than a bar. Lots of good vibes, drinks, dancing, sitting, and one FANTASTIC band. -Nina more

WHOLE NEW PLACE!!! 9/5/2006

O.K....So check this out! I play for a hip-hop rock band called "HORNZ AND HALOS". We had never played the JOINT before, and it had just been remodeled. People told us that it wasn't much. But I guess that was before they changed the place up for the better. Upon entering, I couldn't believe how fresh the flow of the place was. They have a new sound system that bangs throughout the entire place! We headlined that night, so i watched a few bands play from the crowd. It was hot!! Our performance was great, but that's besides the point! If anyone had a lame night here, I don't know what happened. But I had a blast! And the place was packed! After a few drinks the place even looked better. Girls were more responsive...Bartenders were on point. And that's with a hundred screaming people waving for a drink. I might have been V.I.P...but the bartender didn't know at the time. And I still got exactly what I wanted....Oh!..If you ever make it upstairs to the V.I.P. room, you can see the hottest paintings that are stuck to the ceiling...Like picasso's! I'm giving THE JOINT a thumbs up for presentation. And I'm giving all the haters who don't know what a real party is....A HUGE THUMBS DOWN!!! MR PERKINS HORNZ AND HALOS Pros: NEWLY REMODELED!!! Cons: NOT MANY...IF ANY! more

call it as I see it didn't see it 9/12/2005

Was at the joint the past week-end and had a blast. We had such a good time I felt inspired to look this place up and found this "review area" I was shocked to read some of the bad comments some people made. They seem to be in the middle of a renovation that is taking nice form. They have good cocktails, nice interesting people work there and the bands were pretty good. Over all we had a nice time and met some pretty cool people. When looking at the flyers from some of the other bands, we saw that they had calendars that included a huge smattering of L.A. clubs so, I do not believe that these bands could only get gigs here. I am lead to believe that .."callitasIseeit" and other people posting bad reviews are probably just jaded that they aren't playing there!! Pros: Stage, Music, Atmosphere Cons: Parking, Food more

A "made" joint. 8/2/2005

it's a rock and roll venue dropped in one of the more jewish areas of beverly hills. makes for short walks to some interesting markets and eateries. high stage makes watching easy. draws a mixed crowd of age, style, and IQ, which is great. i've never had an off social moment with a patron or an employee. the music is always going to be hit or miss in a town with a million asperations and only a pocketfull of real talent, but it's one of the made venues in LA, so it's going to represent LA live music pretty well. parking is good if you're early, but beware the dental "we tow" signs, because those three spots are a shakedown. very comfortable, large booths, but if they're all taken, it can be a drag. backstage bathrooms are clean. feels like you're draining vip style. what more? not a bad place. more

Nice little Hollywierd Secret 7/8/2005

The Joint on Pico is a great spot on Wed. nights. Happenin' Harry and his crue are in charge of the nights event and the cover to see live music is rarely over seven dollars. And, for that mere $7 you get to see some pretty fun music The sound system is great and the staff is avant gaurd and friendly. The bartender doesn't make too many foo foo drinks but, the ones he poors are classic and pack a punch!! My girlfriends and I were at the Joint on Wed. June 15th and saw our favorite Local rock band, ' Wheresbrett ' who put on yet another fantastic show. If your friends band is playing the joint go see them. If you want the chance of meeting the likes of Robert Plant, Slash, or Vivian Campbell this is a great little hollywood secret you should discover. Pros: Location, Staff, Live Music Cons: Parking, No food at night more

staff needs to be renovated 6/3/2005

Waiting outside for 45 mins when the place is empty isn't right, the bartenders are more into themselves than getting you a drink and paprking is tricky too. I used to like this place but I won't be back after my visit the other night. It's too bad, this used to be one of the better venues around, now it looks like they are trying to make it just another forgettable foo-foo hollywood club after the renovation. Some of the most clueless staff I've ever seen at a club. Pros: decor, live music Cons: staff, drink selection more

Nothing Spectacular... 3/6/2005

Decent venue, but slightly cramped. Nothing too terrible though. They have some decent acts come through, but they also allow some of the lower end L.A. bands take the stage. If you friend's band is playing here, then you have an excuse to go...otherwise flip a coin. more

Cozy nest 9/16/2003

I love this place..... It's such a cozy place for me. The kind of place where the door guy and bar tender remembers you, and is cool with you whether you're a guy or girl. And it's a plus that the bartender makes good drinks...... Tip him well!! He has a REALLY good memory. more

Good crowd. 4/27/2003

Just a good place to be, whether you want to be lost in the noise & crowd, or you want to be in on the celebration. Enjoy the music, enjoy the people. Pros: Music, Atmosphere, Crowd Cons: Parking more

  • The Scene
    Tucked away in the otherwise quiet Beverly Hills-adjacent neighborhood, the Joint is anonymous from the outside, cloaked in black paint and masked by a dark canopy. Fairly tiny by L.A. club standards, its square footage shortcomings are redeemed by large hanging mirrors, which provide the red room with an illusion of size and aesthetic appeal. Bench seating and adjoining tables dot one wall, while a long bar lines the other. The stage itself is brilliant to behold--elevated four feet and flanked by golden elephant tusks--and the sight lines are good from anywhere in the room.

    The Draw
    You won't find many froufrou cocktails here--the drinking is secondary to the music. A good sampling of indie bands pull in young industry types and rock fans six nights a week. Monday night sessions with classic rocker Jack Tempchin draws a mellower crowd.
