I had an event at Bordello Bar called Lipstick, Red Walls & Black Chandeliers and I must say the decor is awesome. I picked Bordello's Bar because it is housed in the location of the oldest bar and brothel in Downtown L.A., Bordello is noted for rekindling its roots as the sexy, provocative venue as it was back in its heyday. Every Friday night is especially steamy when burlesque dancer Delilah DeMilo entertains the crowd (in not much more than her sequined panties). Joining DeMilo are friends Bunny Bravo, Ginger TrueLove, November West, Lavendar LaRue and more for a themed burlesque show every half an hour starting at 10 p.m. Past themes like Midnight Mass (think naughty nuns) and The Comic Strip (Jessica Rabbit and Betty Boop brought to life) add a funky twist to what you'd expect from a classic burlesque number. Resident DJ Herick Hell is on deck every week to get the crowd shimmying along the performers on stage. I wanted us all to have a blast and start the good times.The Music was incredible. I do believe the customer service could be better. The bartenderz friendier as well as the peepz that answer the phone could have better phone etiquette. HoLla to the door man who was a sweetheart. There Web page is never up to date. Well not since June of 09, I know that'z a fact. Right now they have eventz posted for December and we are in the third week of January. Let'z get it together Bordello and get to be a 5 Star venue! BaByGiRl DeMoRnAiE

Terrible, Terrible, Terrible. Duvet is definitely overhyped and should be avoided at all costs. Incredibly overpriced and the crowd is equally as unappealing. The interior is split into two rooms, with one a large dance floor surrounded by beds with curtains, and the other a traditional bar area with tables and stools. The space itself is decent but the crowd that ventures to this spot really ruins the experience. The bar has a cover on the weekends and gets really crowded on saturday night with the traditional B&T crowd looking to go "clubbing" in the city. Drinks are overpriced. Will not be back

So many memories. When my sweetheart and I came here for our first (or was it our second?) date in 2005, they gave us the table in the love nook, with mistletoe overhead. The rest is history..... Another time, I walked into Waziema after a truly hellish (involving a hospital emergency room) kind of a day, and April took one look at me and said "you need a Manhattan", which was true. I miss April, because she made a mean Manhattan, but everything else about Club Waziema has remained steadily awesome for years. The rest of the staff are super friendly. The food is so so good (just make sure not to wear skinny jeans, or you'll have to surreptitiously unbutton them). And last but not least, the juke box is solid gold.
