Just saw Anders Osbourne here - just him, the guitar and the stage and this venue was def the place for that. Stood the whole time on the floor (there is a bar there and standing room right in front of the stage) but you can go upstairs if you have a 'sticker' and sit. I had a 'sticker' -... More

I took my daughter to see Jacob Sartorious. The staff of the venue were very helpful and there was plenty of parking close by. The only short coming was that the venue was very much in the small side for the amount of girls at the concert. The meet and greet was very organized and the will call was very... More

As one of the smallest and oldest clubs in LA, this place turned out to be a great venue for getting up close and personal with the band. Looking forward to going back!

Been to the Troubadour many times and recently caught a show with Willie Nelson's son's bands--Lukah Nelson and The Promise of the Real and Micah's band Insects vs. Robots. Oh wow!!!! This show was INCREDIBLE! While creatively diverse, both guys are amazing musical talents in their own right! Truly a special night of music!

I have been coming to this venue for decades and it has always been a good experience. The quality of bands that are booked here are great. Ticket prices are low depending on the artist and you get can get up close to these bands compared to most concert venues in southern California. The bands are usually cool about cameras,... More

At the border of West Hollywood and Beverly Hills here a literal Who's Who of Folk, Rock and their blending into Folk Rock jammed through the night. Joplin, The Kingston Trio, Peter Paul and Mary and many other emerging artistic musical icons found their sounds and styles as they attempted to find and create their identity and define their genre....

Had a great seat at the bar after flying 2000 miles to experience this iconic place. Was awesome minus the 20-30 obnoxious and loud drunks who disrespected both the venue and the artist, Annie Bosko, that night. Please don't go there if you want to act like that. It is a MUSIC VENUE that happens to have a bar, NOT... More

I attended the Friday night show of Blackberry Smoke at the Troubadour and it was one of the best concerts I have ever been to. The venue is intimate and up close with the artists. The wait staff were friendly and fast, the drinks were wet and the whole place was rocking. Since the Troubadour is in LA, you never... More

Great venue with a bit of an edge. I've seen Jay Brannan twice there. Drinks are what you would expect in Hollywood. Reasonable and safe parking in lot directly across the street.

Neighbourhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
