740 Club is Crap! – The 740 club is the worst club in Los Angeles!!! I would not recommend this place to anyone! Absolutely avoid this place at all cost. The club is dirty and dingy with potential of contracting a disease from the dirtiness of this place. The club entrance is located in a dark alley. Parking is costly at 10 to 15 dollars. Security grossly exaggerate the seriousness of their job. The new year's eve gold package and platinum package for the night was a total ripped off. Let say buying a 40oz beer from a liquor store was a better deal, than this joke. Security was terrible, rude, unorganized, unprofessional, and look like a bunch of reformed gangsters. They constantly harassed people with their flash lights and hit on female guests. The club was low class with a consistent smell of weed throughout the establishment. Security was unable to resolve this situation and were more worried about harassing bottle service guest. The buffet dinner the club offered was a cheese and meat platter tray bought from Costco or something like it. A total joke not a buffet at all. The "party favors" were made out of newspaper material or something similar. The party hats were cheap and made out of construction paper. The blow horns were cheap plastic whistles. You would think that appropriate service would be given to the people who spend a lot of money on table and bottle service. However, the people who spent the least got treated better. Security were to busy trying to pick fights rather than maintaining order. The entire club was a disappointment starting from parking and entering the club. I will never again come to this disappointing club.
Think twice if you go – Really this place sucks...there are not cute guys at all only old dudes ugly ones!!! The restrooms do not have a sign of women either men so u pretty much have to guess which side is for females
..The security really sucks they do not know how to talk properly please read do not go!!!! But if you want to have a bad time go!
When you get to 740, make a U-Turn. – This Club has Potential, its big, not so crowded, and the ceiling show is great. However it doesn't go big on it's potential and draws back: First of all the crowd is lame especially some of the ladies (sorry) either get so drunk they pretty much "Rodeo" in the dance floor and VIP tables, like a strip bar. And since all guys assume that all ladies in 740 are that way, they tend to approach one as such that isn't. Alot of people here seem Promiscuous. Also the Bouncers!! Wow S.S.S. (Scumbag, Snotty Security) I know typical bouncers, but these guy go over board. They act like you're trying to get in Studio 54 in the 70's!! It's just a club!!! and a dump at that. I Hate this club, never going back!
Definitely Not A Sausage Fest! – I finally got a chance to check this place out last weekend and I've been wanting to go since I heard about it over the radio. I have to say It's a pretty good spot to check out. It's well ventilated so you're not smelling everyones funky A$$ and i'm pretty sure i saw a few bars so getting crunk wasn't complicated. If you're drinking a lot make sure not to hold your pee because the bathtroom line can get long. Anyway, the night I went was packed with Beautiful women. I think the guy/girl ratio was like 1 to 5 which was hella good. Definitely recommend this club; check it out and see for yourself...
WHAT A DUMP!!! AVOID AT ALL COST – I went their once with my buddies and will never go back...first of all the main entrance is through an alley. second the bouncers think their working at an upscale west hollywood club i almost didnt get in . third the cover charge is outrageous $20 to get in . they should pay me for being their. its dirty gum on the rug , it smells, its an old building with brick walls and not the nice brick its old and dirty . sewer and water pipes all around the sealing . three levels of dirty staircases. it looks like an abandond building. this place is disgusting. not what i expected after being announce on the radio.
It was the Club to go to! – Heard so many good things about this club. I guess when it WAS new on the scene. I went there last month. It was 80% hispanic. The girls were ok but I seen better looking ones especially if you are use to clubbing in LA. The music was WACK - GARBAGE - hip-hop, then 80's, then trance! I use to DJ and I love hip hop but this is something else. I guess they want everyone to go home with that kind of playlist. I met a few people there and we all left early. This will be my FIRST time and my LAST time! I can't even believe I am writing a review. Don't wast your time or money instead go to any bars or club in Hollywood!
What A Night... – I went to 740 lastnight... it was okay. We called to put ourselves on the guestlist twice before and they said we were on it on the phone. We got there and they said we weren't. Lucky for us one of our friends called just in case so we got in with him. The drinks are definitely overpriced and watered down. They seem to let anyone in. I saw a guy with a t-shirt, jeans, and Vans on. Apparently there's no standard. The music was ok but some songs were completely off. There's no reason why hardcore rock should be played in a club. By the end of the night I wasn't too happy. The girls were classless and drunk. I saw a girl on the gogo dancers stand being fingered by some guy... I mean, really??? I don't know if I'll ever go back.
Not too bad, not too good either. – Been there a few times on saturday nights, waited in line for about 10 minutes...no big deal. Once inside, I found it a bit more cramped than I thought it would be...Some guy with a camera running around wanted to get a pic of me, I asked him "is this for some sort of gay magazine" he said "no, its for a nightlife website"
I'm onto him though, he really seemed to enjoy himself dancing alone. Anyhow; long-story-short.
I've heard its been the scene of some shootings, if thats your thing then go for it!
avoid...period – I traveled all the way from SD to celebrate not only my b-day, but my friends as well. i used to live in L.A a while back. Anyway i had signed up for their mailing list and they had sent me a birthday postcard. two weeks b4 my bday. On the card it said to book and reserve a b-day so you can get FREE SECTION, FREE GUEST LIST, FREE DECORATIONS AND BALLOONS, AND FREE BOTTLE OF CHAMPAGNE....(the guy said its only on Saturdays.it didnt say taht on the card) .i said my b-day is on friday can u do for a friday? he said ok)..and the card said the doors open at 9:30....the guy who i spoke to,..and i wont mention his name..said be here b4 10pm..otherwise u gotta pay.so we get there 5minutes before 10 and the place is not even OPEN!! theres about 10 people in front of us, 6 cars in the adjacent parking lot and a homeless guy asking for spare change on the "red carpet" that we're standing on. i got to the front where the bouncer was and i told him i had made reservations, he said oh just wait in line on the opposite side.." WTF? so we do so and then 15 mins later..a beautiful looking waiter comes up and asks if we made a reservation..i told him yes, he said ok let me see what is going on..so he leaves and comes back within miniutes with the bad news.1. its Friday..and they play RAVE music,( i didnt know this b4 hand) 2. we have to pay to get in despite me telling him that i had been told that my guest list was free. 3. we could get a section but we had to pay for bottle service i said bottle service!? the cheapest bottle is$175..for a bottle of MALIBU..which is 15 bucks at the Rite Aid down the street! He finally sighs and says ok where are you coming from? i told him SD..he looks at me like im crazy..and says you came all the way here for THIs place?!!! hes all NO, go here instead. he directed us to another club! we never even STEPPED IN the damn 740!! and it was 10:45 when we had had ENOUGH! this would of been my 2nd time going here and this time was regrettable!
What a dump! – I gave this dump one star only because they don't have zero stars on here. After waiting in an alley to get in, and paying $20 cover, I entered a stinky filth pit from some third world country. Actually I've been to bars in Tiajuana that are cleaner than this hole. The place is frequented by a bunch of thugs wearing nice clothes who are looking for a fight to prove their manhood. I later learned from a police officer that this place has been the scene of shootings and stabbings. Don't waste your time or money at this S-hole!
