Oh man – Nights at AC always end up wild. Get there early to avoid the annoying line (What the hell - this is Santa Monica lets get rid of the line people) and the$5 cover is lame considering you are paying club prices for drinks. But come with a few in you already and get ready for a fun night.
Great New Place – First time here and its defenitely a place I would come back to on a regular basis. Easy to get in, great decor, good scenary, and really great music. If you've been to the Room, imagine that, but, way nicer, bigger, and with food.
First impression was so-so – Went to this spot for the first time with a bunch of friends for a birthday celebration. It wasn't super busy, which we didn't expect on a sunday night and the music was a variety of live musicians performing "unplugged" style sets. The musicians were okay but nothing phenomenal. The ambience is amazing. Cool "old school" red leather booths and chairs and a padded red leather wall when you first walk in, candles all over, a long lit-up bar dominates the main room and there is also a side VIP room.
My biggest complaint was the bartender. I ordered a Cosmo and it was dreadful. When I asked him why it was so sweet, he said he'd remake it with less simple syrup. I told him a Cosmo is supposed to have vodka, cranberry, triple sec and lime and no simple syrup. He proceeds to make me a vodka martini with splash of cranberry, and a wedge of lemon on the glass. Not a good sign when a bartender can't make a basic cocktail standard at every bar in LA and doesn't seem to care. When a glass was knocked off the bar, he didn't bother to try and clean it up or send anyone else to do it. He was completely apathetic and we were spending money, behaving nicely and tipping well since most of our group is in the restaurant/bar industry.
But I imagine this place is worth checking out again on a busier night when maybe there are some better bartenders working since the vibe in this place is very cool.
Venice is bringing S*xy BACK! – WOW!! I was impressed... The bouncers! the Service! the music and the crowed ROCKED! I will be planning my birthday party here in MAY. This is just what venice needed it's like bringing a little piece of hollywood or Miami home to Venice.. Very trendy place... LOve it!
Based on tonight's visit i gotta give this place the highest ratings. Had this date marked down especially as there was live music scheduled. Some cool grooves from Brooklyn/New Orleans and then live music in conjunction with a super hot DJ - who himself had the time of his life, it seemed. Everyone all smiles and dance party all night long. If they keep this stuff up - consistently - I'll go there every week. well, folks, I have the privilege of only living a 5 minute walk away... Did I mention how great a time I had tonight? This place grooves just right.
For when you're craving a frat party – If you're looking for a place to have a few drinks and some conversation, Airconditioned is NOT the place to go. You go to airconditioned after you've had one to make drinks at dinner and need to just let loose. Airconditioned is your typical semi-cheesy club with a dance floor and some good music. It's a frat party right in a bar! With little cover charge (I think it was like $5) and average drink prices, it's a place to go when you want to dance the night away!
wtf – my guy friends and i recently started getting into air conditioned. these 2 hot sisters worked there. hottest thing about the bar. they weren't there the last time we went. find out they're gone. get them back, man! we always knew we'd have hot girls to flirt with. guaranteed good time cuz of them. they were cool man. just not the same. drinks are still good, tho. and it gets packed with people. u can run into some hotties, but women are rare. and not the blondies
Even the bouncers are cool – Every time I go to AC Lounge, I know I am going to have an awesome time. The music is great--perfect for dancing or just listening to. It is dark enough to feel exciting and hot, but light enough to see who you are making eye contact with across the room. There is always some random video projected on the far wall--a good conversation starter, and it is actually air conditioned--no more ruined curly hair from a hot sweaty room! It is always packed with trendy young people. Yes there is a line, but even thats not so bad, because the security guys are really nice, not to mention quick, you never wait more than 15 minutes. I highly recommend going especially on a Friday night when the crowd is ready to roll.
Keeping Venice cool – Bigger and badder doesn't necessarily mean better but this outpost definitely ups the ante over the pico location!
Lousy bartenders, cheesy music, pricey $$$$ drinks – I was expecting the best considering it is Venice and all. But sadly I was severely let down.
$$$$pricey drinks, 6 to 1 guys to girls "meat market" style, lousy poorly mixed old hip hop and top 40 garbage.
I thought i heard the last of these tunes in highschool!
The bartenders are terrible- slow, unfriendly & looked unapproachable (definitley not the venice style.).
The menu consisted of a few items, noon of which seemed very appetizing.
Save your time and money and go elsewhere, take my advice you'll thank me for it.
