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
