Roided up Bouncers! 2/24/2009

I've never been so insulted in my life. I got yelled at by the Chuck Liddell-looking bouncer (balding w/a bad goatee) for ""yanking"" my ID out of his hand. Essentially a move trying to provoke me to be abused by the staff. He proceeded to stare me down for the rest of the night. The hotel staff seemed apologetic for the incident, but did not make too much of an effort to right the wrong. Pros: You get to feel inferior Cons: See pros more

Great place to hang out, catch a drink, and have a dance 12/4/2008

I LOVE this bar for many reasons: (1) it is in Westwood, which means that those of us who live on the Westside have a fun place to go to for less than a $10 cab ride, (2) It is upscale but low-key, so people dress and act with class and professionalism. there are no trashy clubrats here, only quality people. no pretentiousness! (3) the drinks are pretty strong and reasonably priced, so you can have a good night without paying a huge price for it. The only drawbacks are: (1) smoking patio is too small, (2) they don't always have music, so you just have to pray that luck is on your side that night... and (3) the valet takes a while to bring your car. BUT all of these cons are worth working through because most clubs in LA have these same problems, so I'd rather deal with them somewhere nice like the W instead of some overcrowded, hypertrendy club... Pros: Good crowd, good location, good drinks Cons: Small patio, doesn't always have music more

LA lounge scene 4/18/2008

This place is terrible. I do not recommend that anyone visit the whiskey blue. We went there the night of march 4th for a friends birthday. We had dinner at mastros then headed to the bar in which we had a table and bottle service reserved. When we arrived it was a royal mess outside...which we may expect...but the doormen were rude...which we would also almost expect under the circumstances!! Well we finally got seated and ordered our bottle.... and 1/2 an hour later we are harshly and abruptly being kicked out of the bar due to fire marshall violation in which they exceeded capacity!! OK..so as u know bottles arent cheap..we had just dropped like $500 on a bottle and had like 3/4 of it left when we were kicked out!! So for the next 4 weeks we consistently tried to call and speak to a manager abt the incident. Literally.. 1 month later SEAN the manager of whiskey blue called and was the rudest man I have ever encountered!!! Not once did he apologize for the incident..and on top of that he was condescending and rude. He had the nerve to say that it has been sooo long since the incident that ""he wasnt sure what happened"" and that ""his bussers said that all the bottles were empty."" He was basically calling us liars..I then reminded him that we had been calling for a month with no response...to which he said ""well that doesnt matter...there is nothing we are going to do."" Now I'm sorry ..but the least he could have done was offer an apology and seems genuine about it. He was the the rudest man and I will never go to another randy gerber bar again based on the management and lack of respect. We are all professionals who travel frequently and generally get bottles each time we go out...after my experience with SEAN (general manager of the whisky blue) I will never again go to a Randy Gerber bar ... or stay at a W again .. for that matter!!! PLEASE people..take your business elsewhere!! Pros: decent DJ Cons: TERRIBLE MANAGEMENT more

RIP OFF! 11/20/2007

First the positives. Nice looking bar, great neighborhood and a good amount of eye candy. Pros: Nice bar Cons: Valet parking is unreasonably expensive! more

Too Expensive, Horrible Service, Great Atmosphere. 2/4/2007

We stayed at the W hotel and reserved tables at Whiskey Blue. Initially we dealt with Melissa, who was very nice, and helped us with making the reservations. Pros: Atmosphere, Decor. Cons: Too expensive for what they are selling. more

funky, low key lounge 10/26/2006

still one of my favorite bars in LA. low key loungy type place. although i prefer the lounge circa their renovations which was aimed to cater to locals rayher than hotel guests. the entrance is awsome and very dramatic. nice mood lighting/ candles everywhere. Pros: beautiful modern hotel Cons: parking is rediculous, not as inviting after the renovations more

Fun, can be hard to get in to 8/1/2006

I went here for my friend's 21st- a bunch of us got heckled by the people at the door for a bit. When there's an event in town or a movie premiering, it's super hard to get in. The drinks are really pricey but very well mixed. Good mix of a crowd. more

Great lounge... 5/20/2006

Went there 3 times within the same week. The weekdays there are nice because it's a lot calmer and just a great place to hang out with coworkers or friends after work. On Fridays it's definately a lot more crowded but the atmosphere is still really good and they have great music. We even saw Andy Dick there and he started talking to us for a while too. But weekends are really hard to get in so you better make reservations before hand if you're trying to get in on Sats. Pros: easy parking, great music, reasonable prices more

Attractive people - but gets cheesy 3/25/2005

You're guaranteed to see really, really attractive people here. The bartenders are also pretty hot themselves. Came here on a Thurs night after dinner - was pretty nice up until 10pm rolled around - then it got crowded and the people got cheesier. Definitely very LA - good place to get tourists to check out the scene. more

W-orst bar ever 1/31/2003

This is the worst and biggest rip off suposed to be ""trendy"" bar in L.A. If you want a good time check out some of the other hotel hot spots. Cons: no parking, expensive more

only cool if you go to UCLA! 11/1/2002

My company had it's Christmas party at the W last year. It's a really cool place, clean and modern looking. But it's filled with young UCLA college students who think they're the best thing to be walking the planet. Major attitude from people there. People I didn't even know. It was like a ""club"" and my walking in there I was tresspassing. It's unfortunate because it's a really neat place. Pros: clean, modern, good service Cons: bad crowd more

Red Velvet Ropes 11/1/2002

Great place to feel special if you've got a lot of cash to drop. more

Weak 8/23/2002

Great hotel, weak bar. Not nearly as nice as many W bars in other cities -- Underbar, Cherry, XYZ, Whiskey Sky, etc. Too spread out with no defined structure or presence. The velvet rope out front makes me laugh. The $10+ cocktails make me cry. Pros: Location, Style, Outdoor Bar Cons: Price/Value, Parking more

W-eak! 6/28/2002

Might be fun if you are from the Mid-west...nothing cool about it. Rather bland decor, people and drinks...I stayed 15 minutes and dropped $40 on 2 drinks and parking. Not worth the time or money...If you want over priced drinks at least go somewhere where they are made well. Pros: lots of room to sit Cons: empty, sterile atmosphere, overpriced parking more

Mohitos Baby! 6/27/2002

Yup, this place is very trendy. Nice decor. The outside patio has huge sofas and is awesome place to relax on summer nights. Drinks are pricey ~$11. But...Best Mohitos in Town! That's reason enough to try this place out! more

Barf yuk barf 6/13/2002

If you would like to see firsthand where LA gets it's cheesy reputation, check this place out. Cheeky twenty and thirtysomethings everywhere. And everyone wanted so badly to be mistaken for movie stars. Astronomical drink prices, and the worst posers LA has to offer. Cons: Crowd, People, Wanna be's more

W-hatever 5/15/2002

Yes, this place is very pretentious but does it really matter? The decor is beautiful and the people are beautiful. It's a great place to take tourists. Show them the upscale, trendy world of Westwood. In spite of what others have written, I've never found the crowd to be too unfriendly. In fact, I've gotten into some great conversations there. It's fun to watch all of the people watching each other. Just don't think over think it. Pros: beautiful decor, nice patio Cons: expensive, some bad attitudes more
