So here we go again on another Friday night. Came here for a girl I met birthday. She had her own VIP area. Had her own lil camera crew already on the rooftop. Sooooooo.... Y N DA H3LL ARE WE STANDING OUTSIDE AT THE RED VELVET ROPES WHEN THE VIP AREA HAS BEEN PAID IN ADVANCE !!! They were makin it seem like it was super duper packed on the rooftop. Y when we finally get in there you can count how many people were on the top floor. HOLLYWOOD gets on my nerves with the whole makin U wait outside bit. This is NOT a great thing to do if U want people to come back. N-E-WAYZ we get inside and the atmosphere was cool. ROOFTOP is more like a lounge. They played pretty good music. The MIDDLE level was playing ALL the jams at the right time with bomb mixes. The BASEMENT seemed like it was 18 & over & the music wasn't all that. Again this was a friday maybe other nights are better. Yes valet is $20.00 Yes U better be in shape coming here cuz if U are trying to see all 3 levels...U WILL B GETTING UR STEP ON

The event intrigued me...Star Wars Burlesque show, how could I resist? We arrived at the location about 20 minutes past 9P, the shows supposedly started at 9P. There was a huge ass line. Wow, wasn't expecting that. Bordello is located in a shady part of LA and I wasn't sure if our car was going to be safe where we parked, but we took a chance. The crowd was very artsy and unique. Many rock-a-billy types. Me likes! I don't mind waiting in line, if it moves pretty quickly, but the line moved at a snail's pace. We didn't get in until sometime past 10P....that was almost an hour wait in line. Some people even left because the wait was too long. That is unacceptable. The interior was cool, all lit up in red lighting. The girl bartenders wore burlesque inspired clothing...nice! It had a vintage, vampire, brothel feel to it. Pretty cool. The stage area was packed, since the place is on small side. I discovered that the burlesque show was going to start at 11:30P; there was band that played beforehand. When the show began, the stage area got even more crowded. I thought I had a good view of the show, but I would soon be disappointed. All the tall people blocked my view and even if I tippy-toed, I still couldn't say anything...maybe a pastie or two, but I wanted to see the performance. It was disappointing too, since the girls sounded like they were giving a good show. The place was too crowded and too hot. After the 2nd number, we just left. Bottomline (no pun intended...ok, maybe just a little): you need to get there early otherwise you may not even get in. Once inside, the best viewing spot would be on the side "upper" level or as close to the front as you can get. Once you secure that spot, don't leave. Have a friend get you some drinks and good luck moving around. I am not sure if it was especially crowded because it was Star Wars themed, but the layout and size of Bordello really isn't ideal for a burlesque show. The stage should be more elevated. I heard they used to have these shows at El Cid...I think that's a much better venue. Although I liked the atmosphere and I want to check out the burlesque show, I am not sure I'd come back if these shows are always crowded. The surrounding area is pretty shady that I am not sure it is worth coming out even if the aren't any shows.

What is a Bouncers Status In Society?
Why is it that the majority of bouncers out there think they're god? Do they not realize what they do for a living? Do they not realize their status in society? Someone should enlighten them about their job; let them know that they are no better than a tow truck driver or a garbage man. In fact bouncing is one of the lowest forms of employment right above being homeless and on par with being a homeless gay male prostitute. Now not all bouncers are asses, there are some good ones out there. The difference between the good & the bad are the clubs they work for. Bouncer\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s attitudes are generally better when shootings occur on a regular basis. Something about the shootings makes the bouncer realize their status in society, makes them reasonable and makes them respectful. Based on the above logic it is reasonable to assume that it would benefit all of society if shootings occurred on a regular basis at all clubs, not just the crappy ones. After all bouncers are the peons of the nightclubs and more shootings would help them realize this. WORTHLESS SCUM! Bouncers rank slightly below hobos and crackheads on the social food chain. These dumbasses spent their entire adolescence in the weight room for football and when they graduated they were like \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"AGHHHH….I must keep lifting weights and kick people\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s asses! What can I do???\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" So some football dad who owns a bar calls em up and says, \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Hey, come stand by my door and if anyone acts up, kick their ass…and if no one acts up, just push a few drunks around for the hell of it.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" Then they have the largest orgasm of their lives, grab a shirt 3 sizes too small, and practice techniques of crossing their arms and chest trying to make them look just a little bigger. WORTHLESS SCUM!
THIS PLACE SUCKS!!
