      Mixed feeling
      I am not sure if I should write a review for Factory or for Ultra Suede because they are joined together. You can go from Factory to Ultra Suede without leaving the building, and the line between these two clubs are not clear. There are three rooms with three different ambiances. I went there for LA Pride, and every room was crowded. The go go boys are hot because they are all porn stars from Randy Blue. The bartenders are hot in both clubs. It costs 20 dollars to get inside, and there is no line since I came early. The crowd is very diverse, and the music is great.

      I came here for my birthday the other night and had a great time! The venue is awesome, the gogo boys are smokin' hot, and the music was great. It wasn't like any of the other reviewers have said, no line to get in, didn't have to wait to get drinks, and there was a diverse crowd of people. Maybe it was just different than normal, but I had a blast. Will definitely be coming back.

      Nothing Special
      I've only ever been to Factory during Cherry Pop, though for some reason prefer the UltraSuede side. The couches aren't very nice, and that's all I've really paid attention to.

      Agree - pretty uninteresting crowd
      Some of the pop music can be fun to dance to but the crowd is vapid. If there were a few more interesting, multi-dimensional people frequenting this place, it could really be a great time but i dont think the crowd is going to improve anytime soon.

      Pretentious wannabe
      I can't beleive there is a crowd of people trying to get into this crappy over-hyped place. Early there was nobody there and later it was so crowded you couldn't move . I went to Metro Weds—which was ok before midnight when you could actually move, but then the crowd swelled to a point of absurdity. With one fucking bar tender for the whole place, what was management thinking? It's ok to wait twenty minutes for some stupid overpriced drink. This is the epitome of West Hollywood attitude with nothing behind it. So I went over to Fuego at Rage where there was some energy and good vibes, and the bartender was more than happy to get you a drink. I'll never go back

      Where the pretty people go
      This is the bar that is not representative of all Gay men, that's OK,those guys need a place they feel comfortable at too. LOL!! We use to frequent this place exclusively when we first met 27yrs ago, however when we discovered Circus disco which is far bigger, more down to earth and has better parking we stopped going here. This is not a place to continue to visit when you want to still party after you have passed that age bracket that's considered too old..LOL!!

      So. Totally. Boring!!!
      The music's ok at Popstarz on Friday's, that's about the only good thing about the place besides the super clean restrooms. The people are just plain boring and uninteresting. So had to go club hopping to hang with a crowd who knew how to have a good time.

      Alittle boring
      could just be the crowd, or workers, maybe even a bad night for this joint.
