Success! Thanks for posting your review of Bordello. You’ve done the world some good today.

Too expensive

Place looks cool but $10 cover? $7 beer. It's a RIP OFF! There may be clubs that can charge that and then deliver some live show that is amazing. Bordello isn't there yet. The scene has not arrived adequately enough at this place to justify that big a cover. There are a hundred other cool spots in LA that aren't trying to rip you off with a cover like that.

Terrible. Waste of a night. Would NEVER go again.

Absolutely a terrible night. Here's how it went down: Went for the burlesque show (which we'd heard good things about... but which doesn't matter after tonight!!). The show was supposed to start at 10. At 11 (an hour late!) a BAND took the stage (even though everyone was there for a burlesque show). The band played for 45 terrible minutes (loud, impossible to make out the singer's voice over the horrible sound sy... view more

A Little Crowded

A few friends and I went to check it out downtown. It was really pretty inside and the staff was super friendly, but it was way too crowded and the place is crazy small. It took forever to get a drink. We were kind of over it. At least the drinks were good, once we got them!

Friday Nights are the nights!

I walked up to Bordello last Friday after having seen a flier for ""happy hour"" at 5pm. I arrived at about 7, pleasantly surprised as from what I was told by their attractive bar staff this is very new for them. There were a few locals from the area, but aside from that I was pleasantly greeted by an employee who handed me her card and explained how the rest of the night would work. They have live DJ's playing an... view more

Loving the Friday Nights...

Absolutely one of my favorite Friday Night's... the music is great, the bartenders are super hot and they pour out the alcohol to every drink...Friday night's they have Happy Hour from 4-7pm and $1.00 shots and appetizers....I would totally recommend this spot to anyone wanting to come hang out and dance to a very selective crowd...... The door hosts are dolls and you can always spot a celebrity or two in there if yo... view more

Great vibe and decor, dark enough, strong good drinks, no hassle bouncers

This place may take a couple visits before you warm up to it. Every time I go, I feel as if I have stepped in into another world. They have theme nights so you never know what might be playing. But I love it for being a hassle-free, friendly, fun neighborhood bar. I'm sorry other people didn't have fun but I will definitely keep going back. Maybe they went on an off night because I always see people that are almost... view more

Not worth it.

I have never posted one of these but after what happened a few nights ago at The Bordello I thought I should tell people the servers have a really rude attitude They had a singer who can't sing and the service was slow. The drinks are not cheap, but the service is and when we tipped the girl she looked at the money as if we should have given her a 40% tip instead of the 20% tip which we did give her. \r \r This ... view more

This one gets three strikes

My girlfriend and some friends of mine have been to The Bordello three times. The first time it was too crowded, the drinks are reasonably priced, but I caught the bartender pouring from the well when I asked for a better quality vodka. She claimed I didn't call the name and insisted I pay for it as if it were a call drink. Later we heard a singer that was really awful and realized she had friends in the audience ... view more

I was taken to Bordello's as a complete surprise for my birthday and I completely enjoyed everything about it. Some of the waitresses are rude but it gives off that burlesque old fashion new age feel to it. I absolutely Loved it!!!

Great drinks at fair prices!

I never do these review things but, i just had to for Bordello. You walk in, with absolutely no drama at the door, and your greeted with dim lighting and red all around, which happens to be my fav color. There's great booths for privacy and large areas for groups. Antique beautiful furnishing and candles. Vibe is cool and the drinks are good! Totally check it out. Parking isn't hard to find but DON'T walk ... view more
