Great ambiance – I have only been to Air Conditioned once but had a great time. The atmosphere is great - it's really dark and the wood makes for a cool setting. They have tons of wines- every one I tried was good- but I loved the Cherritini. I went on a wednesday, which was kind of mello, but I heard Friday is really fun.
chill lounge – this is a great place that's right in my neighborhood. it's a hidden spot on a kind of sketchy strip of pico, but once you're inside it's all low lights and clubby wood and leather. lots of wines to choose from and beers on tap. can get crowded on weekend nights, but after work it is really chill.
AC lounge is the spot to be at on Friday Nights!! – The unassuming Air Conditioned Lounge is tucked away on Pico Blvd in Santa Monica. But don't let the fact stop you from checking it out. It has a cozy plush 60's mod-lounge vibe with cool friendly bartenders. Friday nights are not to be missed!!! DJ Eric Jerome is one of the most underrated DJ's in LA. Those in the know are quick to make comparison's to DJ Spider and DJ AM. His excellent skills at melding genres from Hip Hop to Rock to House - will take him far, don't miss a chance to see one of his sets before he moves on to bigger venues. You also can also catch Eric Jerome's set on Saturday nights at the new Air Conditioned Lounge Supper Club in Venice.
Great weekend spot! – I've been going to AC for almost a year. I love it. Christine always makes me feel welcome and she's so sweet. The dj's are great. Friday nights are by far the best, but Saturday's are a close second. The only thing that I hate is that Cole is gone. What happened? Now they have a new manager who hates being there. He's not friendly and he has the worst attitude around. If he hates it so much there, then why doesn't he just quit and let Cole run the place again. Don't let this discourage you from going, just try to go on the weekends. The rest of the staff is fun.
somewhere to enjoy yourself! – So i work on the east side of santa monica and i work pretty late and quite often i feel like a beer after work, (who doesnt) i had been to the joker a couple of times which is your classic dive bar but really didnt feel comfortable in there. Half a block down from there was a bar called Air Conditioned, i walked in on a thursday night about a month ago and i have been going there every week since. Very comfortable surroundings, excellent staff all of which have a good knowledge of their beer and wine which is very refreshing. And i dont even have to deal with cheesy chart music. Great work guys keep it up.
Best Ratio in town boys!! – Ok , so my friend had told me about this bar that he went to on a date on pico, and he told me he had a great night his date wasnt so great but he said the bar was awesome. Of course i asked him why, he then told me that the place was hidden away but i should definetly check it out. I went last saturday. Music was great, found myself dancing and i dont even know how too! i learnt a bunch about wine, which before i knew nothing , and best of all i got a gorgeous gals phone number and i dont know how i did that either!! So basically this is my new saturday night hang out! Its a cool westside bar, finally!! And if thats not enough they have a smoking hot bartender! And there is NO cover!
Great hidden bar on the westside. – I love Air Conditioned. I've been going there for a few months and I am still not tired of it. The music on Friday is great, the bartenders (Christine and Scott) are attractive and friendly. Some of the wine is alittle pricey, but well worth it. I thought parking was an issue, but there is a huge parking lot in back. (you can leave your car there overnight) Great crowd.
A hidden gem – Got to say, I'm pretty over the "club" scene and this locale definitely fills the hole on the westside for a mellow lounge with good wine and music. It's older than the Q's crowd, and not cheesy and sweaty like Liquid Kitty or other clubs with dance floors. A great DJ played an ecclectic mixed of non-overbearing tunes, while the bartender mixed up tasty soju cocktails...the glasses of wine tend to be pretty $$...but I guess their top notch...there is no valet, which can get annoying, but that seems to be what is keeping it from becoming too packed....great great time!!
The best secret spot yet!!!!!!!!! – Still not hyped by a pretentious scene. Great wine list, great cheese selection, and great staff. From the minute you are greated by the large english doorman to ordering your wine from an attractive bartender, you'll feel totally satisfied. I like Thursday nights and Saturday nights. The dj plays a great selection of music. Check this out before it gets overwhelming busy.
My new favorite spot!!!!! – I love this place. I've been going for a few months now and it gets better and better each time I go. Not to mention, busier and busier. I love the wine list, atmosphere, and Christine and Scott. (my two favorite bartenders!)
