Now This Is A Happy Hour!

By Kim, published on Dec 15, 2008

...and Central America.

The drink menu presents a fantastic selection of mixed drinks, wines, and... very smooth, sleek, and splendid drink known as " Supremo Mojito." It is true to its name.

I'd add to this list a friendly and sensitive clientele, wonderful ambience, cool music (Wednesday and Friday nights), and tasty appetizers during the happy hour.

It a plus to know that even when the place is crowded with people, the atmosphere seems to remain one where you can find refuge and solace if you need it.

The bartenders are attentive and... (more)

Memories Are Unforgettable

By Ladymaggic, published on Dec 15, 2008

They Conquered The Los Angeles Forum

By 'Mean' Mike Duffau, published on Dec 12, 2008

...You)

“We roll tonight to the guitar bite.”

AC/DC is a time capsule, they haven't missed a beat...they haven't lost their touch...they stood the test of time. Age has not stopped them from giving us a great performance because AC/DC has stayed true to themselves, and to the music.

I learned something very special those two nights. I learned to keep the spirit of youth as we get older. I've always believed that and especially more now that I have seen a band as old as... (more)
