I hope I don't have to go back there 4/9/2011

I had heard about it, thought it was a peppy music club and instead, the worse calamari i ever had, salty overpriced and took longer than who knows what to make. Very over priced for a bar food, no selection of appetizers to have with a drink so you are not just drinking, 10 people working and nothing going on, so over rated. Yucky more

What Hidden Treasure 5/23/2010

Last night I went to Angels with a group of friends for the first time WOW what a great time we all had listening to live music, with wonderful food that was so good I cannot wait to return. If you are looking for a nice spot to take your friends and pay very reasonable prices in this economy and be in a very clean neat place this is it. The General Manger on duty Dan Fagan, was pleasant and made sure the service was spot on. I highly recommend! Pros: Live Bands, Very Clean, Great Food Cons: Once the word gets out there will be lines.... more

Super hip and very special - a real gem! 10/1/2009

To visit Angel's is to have an experience. The interior design takes you back to the 1940's Glam-Cabaret scene replete with chandeliers, mirrored bar, big roomy circular booths and a wait staff in white shirts and suspenders. I loved it. The food is small plates and delicious. We ate the wagyu sliders, barbecue ribs, shrimp skewers, sauted mushrooms, honey-chicken nuggets, pizza and caesar salad. I drank this super tasty grape cocktail with muddled blackberries. We sat right next to the piano player which made this a very special Thursday night indeed. We will be back for sure - worth every penny. Next time I am going for the absinthe with water + sugar, served up old-school. Come here for dates or as a group (great for both) - come here for drinks after work or to make a night of it. Angel's is a real gem. Super friendly staff and the Chef was very humble and gratious. Pros: location, atmosphere, food, friendly staff, music, drinks more

HAPPY HOUR ON TUESDAYS w/ Beer Pong sponsored by Miller Lite!!! It's a blast!!! 9/25/2007

Julia here... come hang with us on Tuesdays at Holly's! Pros: Vibe, Chill People, Mix of indie alternative and dance music, BEER PONG, Awesome food Cons: it's only once a week more

How disappointing 9/10/2007

I had never been to this bar before and was actually looking forward to it. Sadly I was disappointed with my experience. Waitress was bad. DJ was worse (no mixing skills whatsoever). After a torturous hour of bad service (with the exception of the bartender) and even worse music we left. Definitely not worth the wait. Also if management is reading this...please drop a couple $$ to buy a new handle for the women's restroom. Pros: Nice place, good bartender Cons: wait staff, DJ more

Boring!! 6/30/2007

This is the most boring bar I've been to in LA, and I've been to a lot. The girls and guys here are all wannabes-- totally dull crowd. I've been to bars in the middle of podunk towns in the middle of nowhere that are cooler than this place. Cons: lame crowd, unimpressive decor more

Great DJ! Great option for a Saturday night! 6/3/2007

Last night I went to Holly's West for the very first time to meet up with my boyfriend and friends. I was running behind schedule so I didn't get there until a little after 12. Walking up on the place, I saw a large crowd outside and sighed at the thought of such a long line. Luckily, it was just the smokers and had no problems getting in. Maybe there are lines earlier on in the evening, but neither myself or my boyfriend and his friends had any problems getting in. Once inside, I was very pleased with the decor. The place was packed-standing room only. The drinks were just right, not too strong or weak. I spoke with the manager to set up my upcoming birthday party here. He was very helpful and willing to accomodate my needs. I don't know what the post several places below me was trying to say about the crowd ""not being from around here."" There was an ecclectic mix of people who all looked like they were having a fab time. I especially loved the great music spun by a great DJ who left me dancing until the place closed. The music was a little loud compared to the silent exterior. But then again, this is a bar/club where you go to dance; it's not a quiet lounge meant for discourse. Pros: Energetic crowd. Fabulous music. Good drinks. Cons: Bathroom line wait. AmEx not accepted. more

My hangout is back! 6/1/2007

Was shocked to see the sign in the window of my regular spot last Thursday, but decided to check it out again this week. Was happy to see Holly's West open and crowded as usual. Come to find out it is county policy to post a ""vermin"" sign in the event of any sign of activity of any number of common household pests, no matter how minimal. Turns out the place is fine, no ""rodents"" as the previous reviewer so ignorantly surmised. Had a great time, and I like the changes they've made to the bar. The manager told me they're changing the bathrooms as well, which is probably the greatest flaw with the place. So ""bye bye Holly's West"", hardly. More like ""Welcome back Holly's West, it's good to be home again""! Pros: Still the most fun locally, convenient, high energy, great happy hour Cons: Bathrooms, but they're renovating more

Closed by County Health? 5/26/2007

Wow, I walked by Holly's West the other day and there it was, a LA County sign on the door announcing ""Vermin Harborage and Infestation Violation, Sections 114030, 114030."" Vermin, doesn't that mean r - - s, and don?t they spread plague? Anyway, this place started out all right, but it's been on the slide and now collects a clientele that are ""not from around here,"" if you know what I mean. Lot?s of better places to buy those overpriced drinks, say bye-bye to Holly?s West. more

One to Avoid 1/2/2007

When I saw that Holly?s West had opened up within walking distance from my house, I had to go check it out. Unfortunately, I was sadly disappointed. Holly?s West is a failed attempt to bring ?Hollywood? to Santa Monica, and I have serious doubts for its viability in a location surrounded by much, much better nightlife options. As expected, the drinks are overpriced. The music is so loud that it makes ordering or discourse virtually impossible. Most importantly, the staff was shockingly rude and it seemed the general manager lacked all skills in customer service. With much better options in the immediate area, this is a place to avoid. Pros: Next to at least 4 places with better atmosphere Cons: Rude Staff, Overpriced Drinks more

OK westside bar 11/13/2006

This bar is pretty typical for the westside - decent drinks and dancing, but long lines and hassles at the door. The crowd is nothing special but better than some places in the area. Not my top pick, but a good standby if you dont have anywhere else to go. dont eat the food though, it is not good and overpriced. more

The scene on weekends, and a great happy hour too 11/5/2006

Yeah, this place is busy. A line out the door Thurs-Sat night. But it's worth the wait, if your up for the Hollywood scene on the westside. If you want the look without the crowd, check out Happy Hour (I didn't even know they had one!). The food is good and cheap, drinks too ($5)! The best part is you'll get a table everytime. Friendly bouncers on the weekend and great DJs. Not sure why the other reviewers are down on the place, they must work in Hollywood. The new manager is great. Very helpful with my birthday party. I would definitely recommend this place, but you have to know what to expect on weekends. Pros: Poppin' scene on weekends, Great happy hour, Bouncers Cons: Crowded, line can be long more

Don't waste your time. 10/8/2006

Like many places in Los Angeles, Holly's West is trying to be something it is not. What it is NOT, is a glamorous hot spot where you'd want to spend any time at all. What it is, is a non descript, unmemorable bar with tacky clientelle and even worse staff. Pros: I don't work here Cons: It's still open. more

Great Looking crowd, better looking staff!! 10/3/2006

This joint, formerly the Lincoln Steakhouse, is just what Santa Monica needed to keep all of us from having to drive to Hollywood to have an exciting night out. I checked it out on Thursday night with my boyfriend, and had so much fun that I came back with a group on Saturday night. The line was a little annoying, but once inside I had a great time. The drinks were beautifully prepared by a beautiful, blonde surfer bartender-boy, and the cocktail waitresses were looking the part as well. Overall, I had a great experience and would strongly reccomend this place to any girls or guys that want to experience Hollywood the right way.... In Santa Monica! Pros: good drinks, nice staff, beautiful crowd Cons: line, valet. more

a weak attempt 9/28/2006

Tried to get a table here but the go-to person made it impossible. When our party arrived we were informed no table service was available. I was slightly peeved but very impressed when the hospitality manager tried to make up for the lack of communication by finding a small table, reducing the bottle min. for us, and being gracious. The place got packed super quickly...impossible to find a seat or even standing room if you don't have a table...drinks are way overpriced and weak...decent looking crowd...music is unbearably loud...I was deaf until the next day...Maybe this is the new place in Santa Monica to be seen, but I wouldn't make it the place to be...unless you're getting a table and celebrating some occasion with friends. Not worth it for a night out with the girls. Pros: The nice hospitality manager Cons: Drinks more

Wow...did I enter a dump or a local garage? 9/28/2006

Sad. This was a decent spot for a quick bite, now it is a disgusting waste of a good location. Let's just start with my first stop into the bathroom (not a good sign), the tell all to any decent establishment. Well, let's just say, the Wet Sign, pile of TAPED paper to the floor, empty glass of dried rocks I belive intended for some sort of sweet smelling flower, and a lonely Restoration Hardware toilet paper holder in the corner longing for its partner sitting half used on the counter was not a good sign. I exit, quickly, to find my date waiting with a generously poured glass of wine, nice I think, and then taste it. Oh. The joint is cheap with ladies wearing trashy red dresses with their bras exposed. Wires, light sockets, and I don't think a fire marshal would like to know was all exposed along with everything else. At one point, this spot was probably intended for something special; the wine racks holding nothing, large speakers and a DJ booth with no DJ, and a nice display of liquor being served in plastic cups. We were there for a total of 5-8mins with a sip to spare in my glass. Pros: bucket o'wine Cons: everything more

LAME CROWD OF COLLEGE KIDS 9/10/2006

I took a few business friends on Saturday night. I called ahead and they were very helpful getting us a table and in the door despite a line. That's where the good experience ended. The interior was beautiful with great lighting and very nice seating, but whom are they letting in the door? I was surrounded by college kids that proceeded to get hammered and rude. I was actually dancing and drunk kid got on the floor and stuck his head up my skirt? I thought the DJ was pretty lame as well. At the end of the night I pulled out my corporate American Express to pay for our unbelievable over priced drinks and food (for which we never got utensils or napkins though we asked) only to learn they didnt take AMEX? I was really annoyed and shocked that they didnt take AMEX. Hello? Corporate wine and dine? Do they really think that crowd they are drawing in now will pay $250 for bottle service? I am very disappointed. I live on the West Side and was looking forward to hip new place. Oh well..back to my old favorite Primitivo. OH..the guy that wrote the ""rave"" review...don't make is so obvious that you 1) own the place 2) are a promoter for the place. You lie. Pros: beautiful atmosphere Cons: bad value...BAD CROWD more

Amazing Mini Burgers 9/5/2006

Holly's West Venetian-style furniture and hip decor make it a great place to spend a night out. I can't wait to go back. Pros: atmosphere, music, great dancing more

I WOULD RECCOMEND THURSDAY NIGHTS HERE!!! 8/31/2006

I couldn't believe the awesome looking crowd. This place exudes $ex appeal. Yeah the line looks big, but it moves fast. The door man is totally awesome and fun to talk to. The drinks are great too. Big Tips will go a long way. But don't expect to be able to Grease the guy, doesnt work from what I hear. Pros: The Young Hot Crowd and A/B list Celebrities on Thursday nights w/ Bottles in the booths Cons: The girls with boyfriends ;) more
