Cruise dance bar with studly crowd
Every night at MJ's may be a different theme, but the dirty fun is always guaranteed. Tuesday's long-running Rim Job is as popular as ever, while Thursday's Middle Eastern night (Club Nur) and Fresh Meat Fridays are stealing away some of the crowd from WeHo.

      Great neighborhood bar
      Visited on a Saturday night. Clean, open place. A pool table. Good dance music and DJ. One large room off to the side with a few more tables and chairs for sitting and drinking and where the music is a little less loud so you can talk. A little dark on the inside, but the lighting was still good. They had about four dancers (thongs-speedos-underwear) dancing on raised platforms and all were excellent-looking and sexy. They were friendly and talked to me, and were good dancers!! Bar tender was friendly and nice. (An older gentleman who looked outstanding without a shirt.) There was a van out front providing free HIV testing and was giving out free condoms. I recommend this place if you want a simple night out with go-go boys - a neighborhood bar that's not the jam packed mayhem of the clubs on the west end of S.M. Blvd. in WeHo (although there's a time for that, too.) My only gripe is not with the bar (which is well run) but with the clientele. There wasn't any!!!! On a Saturday night at midnight, with dance music, fit, handsome, bulging, dancing men and a great bar - there were fewer than 25 people in the place! Back in my day, this place would have been packed at midnight on a Sat. I worry that this is where things are going for neighborhood gay bars. Everything is moving toward mixed mega dance clubs (like Micky's, Rage and The Abbey). Too many girls in those places, and not the place to meet guys, believe it or not, as they're all there with friends and are looking to dance and drink and not hook up. MJ's is perfect if you want to cruise, play with go-go boys, or just hang out with a few drinks. Let's keep places like MJ's in business!

      Went last Thursday for Middle Eastern themed night, place was dead. DJ wasn't at the booth at all, so music was horribly slow and boring. After midnight it was only three of us at the bar and dance floor because all other 30 people that came there were smoking hookas outside.

      It was pretty cool
      ok, i go out a lot and i have been all over from West Hollywood, to pico, downtown and south LA. Once i came across the silverlake crowd, i actually like it better than all the places i have been to, minus Fubar. Mj's reminds me of Fubar in LA, and its a place to go for those that just want to chill, have a good strong drink, and relax with like minded people. i recommended to the guys that like regular guys.

      Best bar in Silver Lake
      MJ's is home to the best theme nights. "Rim Job" Tuesdays, "Fresh Meat" Fridays, and the occasional foam party on Saturday. Thursday is Middle Eastern night. Very fun bar with relatively little attitude.

      fun night out
      I spent my birthday at MJs and it was truly off the hook! Being from out of town I was told Tuesdays at MJs for Rim Job Is the place to be, and it definitely was! Excellent atmosphere!

      A perfect Alternative to West Hollywood
      Update: Upon my return to L.A. I checked out Club Nur at MJ's on Thursday it's their Middle Eastern night and in my opinion Hot Hot Hot! Not a crowded room but still a great party crowd and lots of fun. First Review:I was pleasantly surprised when I first came here since it was off the beaten path. Usually those clubs suffer from the draw of the scene but not MJ's. This is one self sustaining party train that doesn't suffer from the draw of West Hollywood. It was everything that it should be. I was looking for something not right and I couldn't find it. The atmosphere, the music, the staff, the entertainment everything was great. The crowd was hot and sexy. I had a blast and I'm comin back for more.

      A Great WeHo Alternative
      I recently went to MJ's for the first time a few weeks ago. What a great bar!! The staff is very very friendly and the crowd was very attractive. Great music and lot's of dancers strutting their stuff!! I can't wait to go back!!

      Very cruisy
      I have been to Rim Job and the Foam Party and have to say it can get pretty raunchy. The Foam Party especially was wild towards the end when I last went...let's just say it was very "touchy-feely." If you are a prude, I recommend that you stay away. If you like some raunchiness and being surrounded by a bunch of horny 20-30 something year old guys without their fag hags around, then this place is for you. I fall in the latter camp, so I am definitely going back!

      Fun dirty alternative
      MJ's is totally a nice refreshing break from Weho. Hot guys, good music...big space....not sure how I felt about the 'foam party', but there WAS a shot boy in a portable jacuzzi out back in undies! Good times.

      More attitude than a teenager!
      I at one time liked this bar, but it has grown increasingly terrible. The hold the line at the door when it isn't even full inside to make it look more popular. Staff are not all nice, some downright rude. I think every time I have been here I have heard someone make a complaint about WeHo or "WeHo guys", when acutally I see more label whores and rudeness at MJ's than 95% of WeHo bars. Space is cramped, they built the bar too wide, can't really get through the one side. Flow being bad, you are sure to be bumped, cocktails always spilled, and hardly ever an apology. I find it to be one of the rudest gay bars in LA.

      A great alternative to Weho
      They have great theme nights, hot go-go boys and friendly bartenders. A great alternative to the Weho clone scene. Catch it at the right time and you can even find a hot guy or two wandering by. Raunchy, unpretentious, and a good time!
