I've been going to this club for 5 years now and I absolutely LOVE it. It's one of very few clubs in LA that play Electronic Music and they've had big name DJs such as Armin Van Buuren, Above & Beyond and many many more. It's also one of the biggest clubs in Los Angeles and of few that are open till 4 am. It has a very big outdoor patio where you can take a break from the music, chat with friends and grab food. The main room is very big where you can dance comfortably, an upstairs loft with couches and a side room. Best thing about this place is there's no dress code, yes! you can wear anything you want , be yourself and no one would say anything. I can say more than half the people who go there are regulars so even if you go by yourself you won't feel alone. The atmosphere is awesome, great vibe and friendly people. This club is perfect if you simply want to hang out with friends and enjoy great music.

Eve is a hip new lounge in SOMA - awesome decor and ambiance, delicious drinks, and i loved the music with the live DJ spinning beats all night long. There is a small dance floor too if you want to get your groove on! The best was the service though. The bar manager is really friendly and knows his stuff! I asked him to make any sweet drink for me after my apple martini, and he whipped something up that I loved! No questions asked. I'm definitely going back. I've been looking for a chill bar like this in Soma for a while now!

I've tried to give this establishment a chance, but I have no other alternative but to honestly report about my experience here. On January 22, 2009, I went here with two friends for happy hour. I'm Asian American, my good friend was with me and she's white. We were waiting for a male friend to join us and one of the men helping out behind the bar started a conversation with us. He was just trying to be friendly and I couldn't hear something he said. I asked him to repeat himself, once I finally understood him he put his hands together like in prayer, started bowing at me saying "So Solly, so solly," I said, "that's dumb, that's not funny" instead of cutting it out, he did it again. My friend was shocked, being a person of color, it's not the first time something racially insensitive has happened to me. She was super pissed, of course I was bothered, but we waited for my other friend and eventually left. The story doesn't end here. So, I thought I would just write a letter to Oilcan's to let them know one of their employees was acting stupidly. I sent a letter on May 4, 2009. Another incident had happened at another club, so I sent the letters the same day. The other club called me immediately, apologized, said they would follow up with their employee, and offered to treat me with a tab (but I never took them up on it). I felt really good that the other club took their customers seriously and tried to remedy the situation in a timely and courteous manner. I have YET to hear from Oilcan Harry's. It's August. So, I don't plan on going there, ever again. I tell all my gay and straight friends to stay away. I do not think there is a problem with all the employees and I do think this particular employee acted like an idiot. That happens at a lot of different establishments. HOWEVER, after writing a very clear and non-aggressive letter informing them about what happened with one of their employees, the MANAGEMENT seems like they don't care to address this issue in a professional manner. Shame on Oilcan Harry's!
