Ha ha ha ha ha ha!!! – I laugh at the closure of The Scene bar. Ha ha ha! So long, suckers! What a hell hole it was. Their website said crap like "bands - don't even think of mailing your CD to us"..."any photos, albums, or band materials will be thrown away"..."we may not even listen to your band online, but we'll contact you if we're interested"..."welcome to the 21st century, punk"... What idiots, announcing their musical ignorance, destroying the opportunity to hear good, new music (for free, no less). F**k you, Scene bar! What places like this fail to realize is that THEY need bands, bands DON'T need them. Bands have their entire LIFE to play music. Piss factories like The Scene have to pay the rent, and the way that happens is if they welcome decent bands to play, and folks show up. Period! Oh, and the bartender chick INSISTED she gave me a regular vodka & tonic, even though I saw her pour cherry vodka and use club soda. Like I don't know what I'm drinking. Scene, you sucked!
West Indian Girl at the Scene – I had so much fun in this club at the West Indian Girl Show. Great atmosphere and unbelievably cheap beer. So much fun and the bands were great. Good show , good company, great fun! Some guy told me that Sundays were even better!
Mellow Atmosphere; Bad for Designated Drivers – Went to The Scene this past Friday night. I went specifically to see Gina Villanovos who was amazing!! I enjoyed the mellow atmosphere of The Scene. There was a very fun, very "Un LA" crowd, which was a great change. Felt like a bar that I could find in any college town in America. Very comfortable!
My only complaint is that as a Designated Driver, I had NO beverage options. They don't serve any non alcoholic beers at all, and the Diet Coke was flat, old, and watery. My only options were to drink beer or go thirsty (as a good DD I choose to be thirsty).
The only place to go east of hollywood – Glendale ... hip? Who would of thought that a rocking club full of great talent, good brews, and truly nice staff would reside in Glendale? But its true! Don't let the classic single door fool you, inside is a real bar rarely found by even locals. Inside is a pool table, dart board, a variety of brews all on tap (from Guiness and Bass to Miller and Bud) and talented bands that surpass even the shows put on by the Echo and Roxy. Come enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and super-rocking music.
A hotbed of musical unrest, this fun and friendly dive bar is at the heart of Glendale's rock scene. – The Scene
There's no rude attitude or even a cover charge at this burgeoning music club from the owners of Short Stop. There's also not much scenery at the Scene: the plywood-covered walls and dusty decor are very dive bar, but there's a pool table, an Asteroids video game, two dartboards and a jukebox jammed with everything from the Rolling Stones to Eazy-E to keep you busy until the band takes the stage. The crowd of hip intellectuals, barflys, retro rockers, urban cowboys and way-cool staff create a laid-back, festive vibe. The bands alternate between indie pop, retro rock and bluesy country rock.
It's fast becoming a mecca for local artists, and big name talent like Lucinda Williams have also made surprise appearances. Look for a lot of the same people who DJ one night to be hosting music showcases or just hanging out on other occasions.
scene bar review – Ok first of all they have the greatest staff ever all there bartenders are polite fast and fun to chat with second thing is they do have one of the greatest jukebox's in Los Angeles third thing were else in LA. can u see some of your favorite local bands plus some great out of town bands like singapore sling, supagroup and riverboat gamblers etc... for free. This is a great venue I suggest everyone checks it out for themselfs u won't be dissapointed!
great jukebox – One of the best jukeboxes I have seen, with lots of alternative music from the 80s and 90s. In addition, the beer selection is better than most places in the area.
