this place is pretty awesome. especially since i took a picture with craig robinson here! the artwork is really creative. i love the antique lights as fixtures. its a great place to take pictures -- which is what we did. :) the live band was entertaining. and the crowd was pretty mixed. the couches were comfortable - don't sit if you have a short skirt. there's a separate cigar/smoking lounge which is very classic. drinks are expensive - but from what i hear LA in general is pricey. there is a happy hour with something like 39 cent martinis before 11 (only the first drink) - i cant remember the exact details. i went on a wednesday night. all in all a good time.

I'm not really a fan of any place that charges a cover and then $9 for a bottle of beer. I realize I just eliminated most bars in the neighborhood, but it needs to be said. I didn't like the first floor, but things got better as we got higher. The music wasn't bad, but it was just too crowded. I don't think I'll be back.

I'm not sure what happened to this place, but I went last Friday & it was a total bust. I was at Opera down the street for a friend's birthday & decided to meet up with some friends who were already at LAX a little bit later. My cousin & I knew one of the promoters so we got in without a problem, but once I walked in I questioned my decision. The place looks run down & ghetto now. The dance floor is tiny & cramped so I had no desire to attempt to even go near it. I just went there to see my friends, stayed just long enough to have made an appearance & then quickly bounced. It was a waste of my time. Personally, if you are there already, I prefer Central which is right next door rather than LAX. I should have just stayed at Opera which is much better than both of those places.
