Another Los Angeles classic, this beautiful theater was originally built in 1925 by architects Charles Selkirk and Arthur Lindley. Alex Theatre was later re-opened as a movie palace, screening everything from Gone With the Wind to Some Like It Hot, and was refurbished in 1993 to its original elegance. It now focuses on short runs of local and traveling theater productions and other live performances while playing an occasional classic film.
Once considered the "home away from home" of Guns n' Roses, the Roxy, a mainstay rock 'n' roll hangout, is a great place to catch some live, loud music. Frequented by both music industry professionals and commoners, the joint has a great sound system, several full bars and, best of all, an excellent vibe. You can almost feel the music history coming out of the walls. For those who like the rough and tumble, the front of the dance floor is often transformed into a mosh pit when high-octane bands perform. This is an all-ages venue, so ID is required if you want to purchase drinks.
The Troubadour is a pioneering rock-n-roll venue with a history that would make any music aficionado blush. Founded in 1957, the venue hosted Bob Dylan’s early shows, Buffalo Springfield’s first concert, and the US debuts of Elton John and Gordon Lightfoot. Legend has it that The Eagles met at the club, and that rock manager Herb Cohen discovered Tom Waits at an open mic night. Concerts are standing room only and usually quite intimate.
