This place is tons of fun and has a nice classy feel to it. If I lived up in LA I'd probably go more frequently. I liked that there was easy access to parking next door, which we all know is so hard to find in Hollywood. The best thing is that they actually grill up Danger dogs outside (equivalent to the TJ dog for us San Diego folks). Perfect for soaking up that alcohol. Unfortunately I had to wade through all the smokers to get to it, but I've endured worse for good food !

Me likes! It's not somewhere I find amusing enough to want to frequent on a weekly basis (I'm sure it'll get boring) but how can you not like being able to explore the museum w/out little kids running around getting in your way or yelling for no apparent reason at a discounted admission fee . Don't get me wrong, I don't hate kids but I LOVE that you have to be 21+ (there's alcohol) to get in. Definately try to get passes for the Planetarium. It's first come first served and we didn't make it but I so wanted to. Parking sucks so park in the garage unless you get lucky and see parking on the side streets. Most likely none of those people are leaving anytime soon as they probably got there just as you did.

IMHO, Bring back 1150. Opera is proof that just making the place look nice is not enough and more then anything, the people you bring in define what a place becomes. I haven't been there a tremendous amount since it became Opera, and there is a reason. 1150 had a charm to it, a vibe, variety, class, and it was more then just an interesting place to go. You never went in jeans, VIP meant something other then who could pay $50 for a wrist band, and there was respect, both for the place, the music, and for other guests. Last night was my final straw on this place. After paying a decent amount of money for tickets because all my friends were going, I waited in the Will Call line for almost an hour (I mean, really, I've already paid and I have to wait!?!). Finally getting inside, my friends ran off to the nearest bathroom, and my girlfriend was in heels, so we were a step behind, just enough for a bouncer to jump in and tell me I had to pay a VIP charge when my friends just walked by (to go to the nearest bathroom..really?). So, okay, finally Kazell gets up there and I'm thinking, the decor is nice, light show is cool, and the sound system, thought it's by no means Mansion, will do. So, shrug off the bad vibe and try to chill, and try to get a drink, but several bartenders ignore me in favor of talking to a pretty girl. Fed up, I make eye contact with the cute female bartender, flirt a bit, and in no time, I have my drinks. I know I should have done that in the first place, but it was extra effort for someplace, as much as they are charging for drinks, I shouldn't have to put forth. To the guy bartenders there, you are there to serve, not play kissy-face with whoever. Finally getting a drink, i join my friends on the dance floor. It should be called a shove floor; I've never been pushed so much in my life. One guy had the audacity to push me hard enough to knock over my girlfriend, into my friends girlfriend, into him. Not even an apology, and this happened to lesser degrees all night. It's busy, yes, but are these the type of low class people the former 1150 has to let in to pay for their renovation?
