I was one of the promoters that launched this clubs back in what seems like the stone age. It was supposed to be a $24 millions renovation but honestly I could have gone to mexico and return with staff and materials to get the job done for $100k. The multiple doors and multiple floors was alway a bad idea. The door staff were always stressed out. Security staff only respond to $20 golden handshake which always made them smile and helpful. Girls: Almost always trashy, very young and possibly underage with good fakes. Cover Charge: Dont complain about this, nightclubs provide a service and if you want that service then you must pay. If you feel that you are too special to pay, then sit your ass at home. Roof Top: If you dont get to the roof top, its because you are considered ugly. If you see other uglies on the toof top, its because they are good friends with the promoter or they came in as part of a bottle service group or they gave security a golden hand shake or a BJ. Kress has to be over crowded, its the only way they can recover some of that $24 million. Yes its always a young crowd, 21-24 mostly, this is not Vegas, New York or London, if you dont like it, stay home. This is a good destination for large groups such as birthdays and bachelor & bachelorette parties, cheap bottle service and bottle service If you are super chilled and dont mind dancing with line backers, convicts, hoodrats, east LA and compton massive then you will enjoy the atmosphere. I was last at Kress on Friday Jan 21st and the crowd on the 3rd floor seems like the best crowd out of all the floors. Why did I ever promote this club, oh yea, I had to pay rent.

This place has enough reviews already. But as a supplement to them all. I had one of the best nights of my life here. Do yourself a favor and experience it firsthand. The performers were all dead sexy and the music was enlightening.

I went here on a regular weeknight (I think it was a Tuesday) where various rappers/bands were performing (sponsored by Hot 97). I liked the size of the place, unlike other smallish live music venues I've been to. I was able to get really close to the stage which was nice when the performances were great, or when I wanted to check out the hot drummers/musicians up close. The place didn't get overly crowded and mostly everyone was there for the live music. There is an elevated area towards the back which is where the bar is too, so I think, from wherever you are in the club, you can see the stage. The sound system is good too. I didn't see too much seating here, but that may have been because the night was strictly reserved for performances, with the expectation that the audience would just be standing in the crowd. I like the location of this place too.
