Most amazing venue to see anyone. Super quaint, the perfect size and Jon Brion on Friday nights is amazing.
This is a great place to see indie music or comedy. Jon Brion, Aimee Mann, Sarah Silverman, Russell Brand have all graced the stage. Stop by the little room for wine or beer before the show. Bring cash...credit cards are verboten.
The Wondrous Jon Brion – After making dinner reservations well in advance, we were seated right next to the stage. The menu selection is very limited: you choose between five items, all of which cost $15.00. The food wasn't bad, kind of had a dinner-theater feel to it. But the reason to go is to see the musical genious that is Jon Brion.
Mr. Brion is a remarkable entertainer, combining sampling, piano, sound effects, guitars and drums to form very listenable tunes.
However, the best part of the night was his choice of guests including the lovely but unfortunately forgotten Fiona Apple. Ms. Apple sang a few songs before departing and hearing her bluesy voice was surely a treat.
Overall, a perfect place to bring a date that you're trying to impress, especially one who you don't have much in common with as there is a strict no-talking policy during the four hours of music.
A Fun But Trendy Club – It's dark, it's tiny, and the food is overpriced, but for an evening out to enjoy some wonderful music it really is fantastic. The first impression I had was "how on earth can anyone fit on that little stage?", but it posed no problem for the acts. You can sit at the bar and have the same view as if you were seated for dinner. The staff was attentive, and the street parking wasn't too bad. The main problem I've found in other intimate venues is that the mixer has no idea how to balance for a smaller room - it's usualy presented at a level that could tear your face off. That's not the case here. Their people know how to balance for size. To get an overall impression of how cool it would be to have an artist perform in your living room - Largo is it.
Great shows – I've been to Largo several times and I always have a great time. Good food - a bit pricey for what you get, but tasty - and great shows. Performers such as Jill Sobule, Simon Townshend, Paul F. Tompkins, and, of course, Naked Trucker. Intimate spot to catch some more eclectic artists. Make sure to make a reservation if you want to get a table for the show you want to see, otherwise, you may be standing in back, near the bar, for a couple of hours.
The worst staff in Los Angeles. – In all my years of dining in Los Angeles I have never encountered a more rude, arrogant, and hostile staff than I have at the Largo. I cannot warn you strongly enough to avoid this establishment at all costs. My guests and I were literally insulted by the staff and treated to what was easily the worst service of any restraunt or bar I have ever been to. This is the sort of place that gives Los Angeles a bad name. On top of that the food is an inedible disaster. It is unfortunate that interesting musical acts occasionaly choose to play at this establishment, but there is no act worth subjecting yourself to the horrible insulting staff of the Largo for.
Buyer Beware – Ive been patronizing Largo for 3 years and in that time I have seen the prices of mediocre (at best) food, and cover charges skyrocket, and attitudes of the owner and wait staff plummet. No question in the talent booked at Largo, but from now on Ill chance them showing up at a different (more user friendly) venue in town.
Awesome, but get reservations! – A wonderful place to catch live music. The good news is they really do have great performers (saw Grant Lee Phillips last night) in a very intimate setting. Bad news is how crowded it gets--the place probably holds 100-150 people max. Your best bet is to get dinner reservations--you'll have a place to sit for the evening.
crap service – The worst service I have ever had. Seriously. The rudest, most "L.A." staff that you will find in the city.
Jon Brion. Period. – as if housing jon brion every friday isnt enough...every night there's a great performer at Largo. great intimate club. cheap covers for great talent (jon brion, elliot smith, aimee mann, glen phillips, et al)
Jon Brion's House! – I've never attended any of the other Largo events, but I can testify to the quality of the Jon Brion experience. A great experience regardless of whether he brings out a special guest (Neil Finn to Sheryl Crow to Robyn Hitchcock) or simply muses on any one of the insturments on stage. Food is good, the drinks are great but you're there for the music. To that extent, please keep it quiet. Jon demands it!
Intimate Space, Great Music – Forget the LA music scene; true music lovers come here to watch good damn music. From Jon Brion to Joe Henry to a stripped-down David Garza setIve seen several great shows here and have never been disappointed. The prices are totally reasonable (esp. on weeknights!) and I love the intimate space and the seating. When I go to shows after work, its great to be able to sit down & ENJOY my beer. Be warned tho: if you make a dinner reservation and show up after 9 the management will give your seats away.
