A few friends and I came here last Saturday night to celebrate a birthday. We showed up around 11pm, and there was no wait to get in. Cover was reasonable at $5 and drink prices were average. I also liked that there was ample parking (paid, but very close) right across the street. The crowd def thickened within the next half hour or so and it was a good mix of folks, not too shady. I loved that this club was actually a bunch os smaller rooms - each with a diff DJ playing different types of music. There are also some rooms that are more bar-like with tables instead of a dance floor so when you want a break from dancing you can find a seat and take a minute instead of at some other clubs where you just awkwardly lean on something in a corner and hope you don't sit on anything sticky. All in all, my friends and I had a blast, and I'd def come back here again!

I came here with a couple of my friends on a Friday night to see a jazz musician, who turned out to be pretty awesome. We came a bit earlier to grab some food and drinks before the performance. The service was fine, nothing special, but my kobe beef with miso was wonderful. The other items we ordered were just okay. The rolls were mediocre, and the edemame had a lot of empty shells. Now, the performance was done by this old, small Japanese man, but he and his crew were definitely full of energy and quite impressive. The only downside, or maybe just for me, was that it seemed to be more of a formal situation where people were expected to sit and watch. I personally enjoy jazz bars where you can have conversations while enjoying the atmosphere and music.

Happy Hour review On my adventure of the boys-town bars, we went to Micky's for their happy hour that lasted until 9pm. My eyes have been trained that when I see a 4pm start time that the happy hour must end at 7pm. It was nice to see that Micky's stands out from the bunch. And do they ever... Micky's has a pretty diverse cocktail menu to flip through. Favorite line on the menu, under Cosmopolitan-- "Like the Girls in Sex & the City drink!" Like any man or woman in a gay bar would need to be told that, but still cute. Although the bar has a pretty lengthy menu, their happy hour signage is pretty bold when it states $4 Well Drinks. Nothing more. I thought to discuss this with the bartender, but they were too distracted by the men oogling them, and I was too distracted by the go-go boys to investigate further. We stuck with the well drinks on special and ordered cranberry & vodka. Micky's serves food, too. The happy hour menu only offers only 4 options that actually sound pretty hearty: angus or chicken sliders plus fries, artichoke heart salad, deep fried blue cheese salad. I may not have minded the short food menu, had it not been included on the regular large menu. I always feel happy hour menus should be separate because most people are going to start eyeing what they can't have... at happy hour prices. Micky's is the place to go when you want some eye candy. If you're trying to catch up with a friend, all you'll talk about are the boys. I have been to my fair share of gay bars in West Hollywood and beyond so this wasn't the first time of seeing go-go boys. It was just odd to see such a show when a show wasn't going on. These boys are out to make some money, and the patrons are glad to give it to them. The boys would just sit, stand, or lay on their podium sometimes gyrating, sometimes groping themselves and men would just come over flirt, hug, & give money. It was such a sight to see that I almost felt prude. Almost.
