Stayed at this hotel for a week and was curious about this club. Read the reviews here and was a little apprehensive about trying to get in because there were no other ladies in my party, i was wearing my maxi dress from earlier in the day, mismatched flats , no makeup, no connections, and im 30...lol...Anyways.... The lobby of the hotel is busy..there are people loitering and waiting to get in...little confusing...just walk to the side where the cover girl charge taker is and the bouncer will let you in...this is around 11:30 ish.... I thought the bouncers were nice...I had forgotten my id and had to go back to the room to get it, and he let me in on the exit side no problem.. Like everyone says don't come here without an open wallet. NOTHING in the entire fontainbleau is cheap (i.e. a coke at bleu bar is $5 bucks and a room service coke is $11 not including auto tip). LIV is no different. the cover for guys was $40 and women $20 (likely negotiable). Drinks are start at $16 for a well and I thought pretty generous pour. The prices does filter out a lot of the crowd ..otherwise I think it just be too ghetto. However you are still a 2nd class citizen without bottle service. There is a limited standing area by the bars and in the middle of the dance floor. Most of the space is taken by tables... I went on a Sunday and apparently it was hip hop night. Playing a lot of 00's hip hop which was nice. Mostly African American crowd. Early to mid twenties in age. Club wasnt very packed but when I left saw the outside crowd double in size. Also no re-entry ! Be prepared to repay if you want to go back in. If you are idealistic i.e. anti superficiality anti pay to play anti snobbery then u will definitely not like this club... I dont think it lived up to its hype but it's definitely something to try at least once if you are staying at the hotel... edit: oops..guess I went to bed too early....Rick Ross came later ....

I have lost thousands of dollars and many many hours of my life to this, my favorite norebang in koreatown. There have been many nights I've shown up here at 5 and left at 10am, including my birthday party last week. As the others have said, the grey goose bottle service is the way to go. Oh, and also, I think the name has changed to "grand" instead of "grammy" (I heard from my friend it was for legal reasons). It's the place up the little elevator from Wonjo. -j

4 stars for being true to the genre. Isn't Van Ness technically part of Hwy 101? Hence the name? I agree with everyone below, I would only add that it gets an extra star because they serve hot dogs, pretty much on demand. They used to be $1.00 but now they've gone up to $2.50 but the bartender correctly points out that they are bigger than they used to be. I like to go to the gym, work out hard and come here for a beer and dog, figuring I'm breaking even for the day.
