Great place – OMG we had so much fun at here! I was shocked that the drinks were $5 dollars! The bartenders were really sweet and cute and so was the crowd. I def recommend this place.
Friday night- great for girls! – The crowd was amazing- beautiful girls everywhere- I never knew L.A. had that many! Everyone seemed friendly and they get very hype when the dancers start performing. The go-gos here are better (performance-wise) than most clubs I've been to, including NYC and Miami. I dug the music. I wish they played reggae but it's all good.
BEST NIGHTCLUB/LOUNGE IN LA! – I recently went to Here after not being there for awhile and had THE BEST TIME! Not only did I go Friday (which is ladies night, but mixed) but again Saturday. The music was amazing... the lighting was great and the staff was hot n super friendly. The Friday night ladies are amazing.. the bartenders dance these hot choreographed numbers every hour! And one girl got a lap dance.. ON THE BAR! Blew my mind... Sat was equally as fun with hot weho boys and amazing music... HOT NEW MUSIC, HOT/FRIENDLY STAFF, GREAT DRINKS! I love Here and can't wait to return to LA!!
Poor Management and Bartender Courtesies – I went with my friend to the Here(hadn't been in over a year) The music was the bomb(as usual), the dancers were awesome(something new) and the crowd was mixed(which I love).
When the dancers stopped dancing they began to bartend. My friend and I waited at the counter for our drinks(which was to be expected,duh, there's a crowd and I'm very patient) However after being passed over too many times my friend told the girl we had been waiting awhile. The bartender for whatever reason was annoyed with us and told us we were standing in the middle of (I guess an imaginary divider line). I was clueless to what she meant but she reluctantly made us our drinks. I held my twenty bill out for her to take, which she did after serving and taking money from another patron. Before leaving the counter my friend asked if she could have a lemon with her drink and the bartender THREW the lemon at us and it landed on the counter. I was LIVID, INFURIATED AND SHOCKED. I felt like I had been violated in front of a crowd of people, for what. I still don't understand why she was bent. We were waiting not irately or obnoxiously. I told the manager, Andrew, and he didn't seem to believe us. He spoke with the girl and she denied it, of course. He said he would offer us free drinks. At that point I didn't want to stay because I felt the management was lax and I had no clue what else might happen there and they didn't seem to have control over their employees(obviously). I told him(as I was pointing at him) I wanted my money back for the drinks and cover charge and I wanted an apology from the bartender for her inexcusable behavior. He refused, which infuriated even more because at this point I felt like a helpless victim with no where to turn. the manager had his bouncers put me out because I wouldn't stop pointing in his face. If that was demeaning to him then how does he think I felt having food thrown at me.
I say BEWARE of this establishment.Management SHAME!! They don't protect you.
Worst Venue in LA/HOLLYWOOD – Aside from the limited square-footage and power hungry doormen, this is possibly the worst ran venue in the area. Last night a group of friend and I were denied access because one of our friends had an out of state ID. And because the doorman "wasn't familiar" with this State's ID, he refused service asking for a passport, a phone bill, or multiple credit cards. We even offered to call LAPD or the Sheriff's Dept and suggesting running the ID number. Rudely and ignorantly he refused. Which was a pity because we went to rage and spent $500 and had the best time! Forget about what you may have heard -RAGE in WEHO is the place to go! Great staff, REALLY STRONG DRINKS, and an amazing DJ at the dancefloor. Boo HERE, YAY RAGE!!
Ur 15 min is OVER! – Yeah, besides the hot dancers- which i think occur on Fridays- It has become about under-aged? no eye candy type of girls- this place has fugly promoters cus they sure dont add to the hot scene. Not to mention that most the girls in there are prolly snorting in the bathrooms..if you are into the L.A. hipster clique scene, then by all means...small dance floor, expensive drinks...i'd rather go to the ABBEY ANY DAY OF THE WEEK!!
Popular West Hollywood gay club – Here Lounge is one of my favorite weekend destinations in West Hollywood, even as a West Hollywood resident. The bar has an appropriate circular flow pattern, with a large bar in back. During the week, you can find a show or popular dance night at Here. The outdoor area is surprisingly lacking in smokers (a good thing). It's become almost too popular of late, with a long line down the alley. VIP access is pretty easy to attain though if you come frequently or know the right person.
Where are the hot women at? – Thursday nights are now officially busted in WEHO! Here used to be a great lesbian bar on Thursdays but around the time they started charging at the door it stopped being hot. My crew and I started going to East West at that time and whoever is promoting that place has let it go to hell since. Drinks at Here Thursdays are bad and girls are no longer eye candy. Can no one promote a good Thursday?
Awful drinks – It's been my displeasure to have gone to Here bar several times. The first time I went was for a friend?s birthday party. It was a special night and we had even rented a cabana. The drinks were pretty bad but we looked past it. When we were finally ready to move on to the next location for the night, we asked for the check around midnight. We waited literally over two hours for the friggin? check. We were the last people to leave the bar. Security even started yelling at us to leave and we still couldn?t get our check. Then the owner came over and was a total a**hole about the whole thing. Despite that awful experience and a few others like it, a friend recently talked me into going back for a few drinks and to watch the debates. The drinks were so terrible, I just couldn?t take it and had to leave. Go the Abbey?MUCH better drinks.
Go Here, not There... – On Thursday nights, Here Lounge is a great place to hang and dance to Hip-hop, Reggaeton and other cool beats with a diverse group of women. It's also a place to meet and greet out-of-towners or just to kick back after a long work week for the ladies in the city of Angels.
Friday night draws a slightly different crowd of women who come for the 80's and/or 90's rock, pop and dance... A similar rendition to the "Coyote Ugly" top-bar dancing is featured on Friday nights, which brings in a straight crowd also.
Definitely a place to stop in to see and be seen. I would prefer a beer as opposed to any of the mix cocktails...
