Used to be Great – This place was a real gem amoung the hollywood cool spots. Unfortunately it showed up on an Episode of "Entourage". This kinda put this place on the map for all the "I wanna be like that" crowds. This is a very cool spot. Have only been on Saturdays. nice decor, good looking people, mixed crowd, and great DJ. The service and drinks are great. All this adds up to what would be a good Sat nite destination, IF YOU COULD GET IN, that is. Like i said, used to be a great spot before showin up on TV. Now it seems like every nite is a "Private Party". My advice is to call ahead and see if its open to the public on whichever nite you wanna go. Saturday nites are probably a no-go, but check it out for a mid-week romp. you mite get lucky. If you can get in, you should have a great time.

One Year Later – Winston's was a great place for approximately three weeks between January and February, 2007. Now, it's a neighborhood joke.

The doormen, famous city-wide for their expressionless douche-baggery, preside over a nightly sausage-fest of black knit sweaters and $300 jeans. One wonders why the place is even open to public at all, as it seems it could make plenty of money just being the private-party, under-capacity circle-j*rk it is.

50/50 shot – Thinking of going to Winstons well...roll the dice. Your admission all depends on the person on the door that night.

Most of the doormen suffer from some sort of bi-polar disorder. Either, you recieve drama at the door and

you are whisked inside or......you are made to wait outside while B-list celebs come in and out.

Getting past the door is treacherous. But when inside the dj is awesome and the drinks are well made.

Never go for a birthday or any event where you have high expectations...because they probably won't be met.

Yuck – This place is highly overrated. The mac n cheese is nasty. The waiters are rude. However, the people watching is decent. I wouldn't come here for the food or drink again. Ever.

this place is joke – I have been there once for a birthday party and it felt all right nothing so special. It was around 9:30 and there was no one at the door or in the bar except a couple of friends who came to celebrate it with us.Around 10:30 it got crowded.

However this weekend it sucked for a big time.I and my two friends waited one hour to get in. The guy at behind us (whose friends were already inside and tried to get him in) could not take it anymore and had a big discussion; said some dirty words to those stupid doormen for 10 minutes without getting any response from them and left the place. And during his discussion my girl friend also said a few things to support this guy because it was really stupid; We were waiting there and these so "cool" doormen were not getting people who were waiting in the line (except you know them /be on the list or came as a girl group)

And this is not really a rage of not getting in `cause I ve been there.

I really like night life and have been hottest places in La and I know how the things work;

You look good; you should have a reservation or you have to know someone inside for some places to get in quickly. We really looked better than average but ratio was 2 men 1 girl. These stupid gorillas at the door were getting every girl (doesn`t matter how she looked ) coming and not letting people who came with mixed crowd waiting in the line.

At the end, the doorman told me "I could get in but not with my girl friend because she`d had some discussion with him" and I said how stupid and uncool he was acting and left to place to get drink at the neighbor Bar Lubitsch.

Believe me there is nothing special inside (I ve been there ) and those guys at the door don`t have a clue about how "a really cool place" is managed.

I`m sure no one will remember it next season.

If you wanna get some drink with a cool crowd try a half block away "Bar Lubitsch"

An outsider's view – Gotta tell ya, I live in denver and just happened across the reviews for this place... hilarious. I own restaurants and bars here, and I just can't imagine having to deal with the added layer of politicking as indicated in Kady Marriott and others' reviews.

Not sure if I should congratulate the owners for operating under duress, or congratulate Ms Marriott for walking away because she didn't want to deal with what sounds from afar to be a friggin nightmare...

bartenders like no others – Me and my buddies alwasy come here on sat nights, it started off awesome and then has dwindled down everyweek. However last week they replaced the cheesy guy bartender with a smoking hot, heres the kicker SWEET(for hollywood thats a rare quality) redhead. She perked up the whole bar. The other bartenders were dancing and taking shots, the girls in the bar were dancing more, It was just what that place needed. hopefully winstons is on its way back up!

Lame – Will never return. I get the whole guest list thing, but seriously there was probably a handful of people inside, nobody in line and we were told it was guest list only, for a whole 20 people on the list. I've been to my share of parties that are hard to get into, so they say, partied with the Playboy girls and I can hold my own. I'm also female, blonde, blue eyed, naturally attractive, but not a fake 10. I've never been told no in my life, which isn't always a good thing, but you get the point! If it was crowded I would have understood, but I just wanted to have a relaxing drink and probably would have left before their so called list arrived, but I have no desire to now. What appealed to me is that this place once had a mixed crowd, but I guess things have changed. Have fun because I will elsewhere.

Lame – The door men will make you wait outside(for an undisclosed time...'you're not gettin in') even though they are not even near capacity inside. And I'm talking about Monday and Tuesday nights! And when you get in it's not all that. Sure, some celebrities go there, but only for a little while longer. It is soon to become one on a long list of 'hotspots' that aren't that 'hot'.
