I checked this place out last weekend after reading the positive reviews on rateclubs and seeing that a couple of DJs I recognized from my younger years were spinning. I can see why some people might really like the vibe at this place, but it didn't really do it for me for a few reasons: 1. This is not a hip-hop club or a techno club... it depends on the night and the promoter. The night we went was very heavy on minimal house and acid type stuff, which only marginally got the crowd fired up. 2. This is not really even a "club" as far as I'm concerned. The vibe is much more like that of an underground warehouse party than the velvet walls and bottle-service type scene. You'll be much more at home rolling in here with a tshirt, baggy jeans and sneakers than with a button down shirt. 3. The venue had a bit of a funky smell to it... kind of like smoke. Again, definitely not a "classy" type venue... 4. Despite the claim that the evening would be "$5 before 11", we arrived at 10:30, there was no line, and we were told it would be $15 each. We bargained down to $10, but still... if you put something on your website, you should honor it. 5. The girl/guy ratio was pretty miserable. Not a singles bar for sure. There were a number of things I did enjoy. By an large the music was good enough for me to have an enjoyable time dancing. The drink prices weren't too bad and they had a decent selection (about $11 for a beer and a mixed drink for the lady). If I had known what to expect up-front, my review might have been a bit more positive. However, since Mighty claims to be the "best new club in America", I'd have to say it failed to live up to expectations.

Worst "club" I've been to hands down. I went here for Banana Split Sundae for a birthday thing. Not my choice to come here at all. We walked around the corner and there was no line. The "doorman" had the nerve to ask us what we were there for. Are you KIDDING ME? You work at LAX and have the balls to hassle me for entry? I said I was there for a friends birthday and he had this look like "okay I guess you guys can get in." We had just come from freaking Villa, so obviously I've gotten into nicer places than this shit hole. Excuse my language. THEN the bouncer decided my ID wasn't legit. PUHLEASEEEE. Anyways, so the interior was grimy as expected. The only cool thing was the jellyfish tank in the wall behind the bar. There was a keg on tap at the side dance floor. CLASS-ACT. We decided to escape to the restroom. I asked one of the bouncers where "the bathroom" was. He gave me a puzzled look like I wasn't allowed to or something and after a few seconds of awkwardness he says to me "why do you need to go to the BATHroom do you need to take a bath or something?" I was like oh HELL no, is this too classy of a place to use the term BATHROOM??? FURIOUS, I went to the BATHroom and went outside for a smoke. I looked around and noticed how most of these kids looked 18 or younger. Interesting crowd to say the least. I stepped on a broken glass with my new shoes and told one of the guys there was glass on the floor, and he just shrugged and said "that's okay." This place's only saving grace is the fact that DJ AM owns it. And I guess Steve Aoki DJs occasionally. So the ONE star is for DJ AM. If it were possible, I'd give it 0 stars, I just tried and I guess it's not possible

Do you like Ethiopian food? Do you like drinking? Would you like to partake of both of these things at the same time without sacrificing a great deal of quality in either category? You should come to Club Waziema then. This place doesn't have the best Ethiopian food. It's not the best bar. But it's a pretty good combination of the two. You might also dig the horrible horrible horrible red wallpaper and the fact that it seems like it might be a front for something else, although I'm positive it's not.
