Alterna-cool lounge in Silverlake
The opposite of uber-trendy WeHo bars, this hipster crowd is for bears and disco daddies.

      Nothing compares to Akbar L.A. - this place is an institution! And it just keeps getting better. The crowds are super fun, very festive and friendly, and always ready to dance. It's a small venue but seems to work, everyone fits in nice and cozy, but doesn't ever seemed uncomfortably packed. I love the music, always something new and different every night of the week, keeping it fresh. And Akbar seems to attract a wide variety of sexy faces from around L.A.. It's a great "eastside" escape from the craziness of West Hollywood. Love it!!

      Not a Fan
      I thought Akbar would be my favorite bar when I moved to LA, but was wrong. Very hipster crowd, really dark, and the dancing is only so-so. Parking is easy, but not convenient to hop around to other places. I understand why some people LOVE it, but it's not my scene.

      Good Times.
      This bar is actually pretty cool. Good Drinks, Nice bar Staff. And this place has the most arbitrary clientele. I loved it. Unfortunately I went on a night they were doing some type of crafts in the other room so there were a lot of lesbians. Dont get me wrong, I love lesbos. and if I was one I would have been in heaven. Other than the Guy to girl ratio that night. this place rocks.'

      Best bar in town
      After my last visit to LA I had determined there was no bars in LA worth seeing. My very cool friend brought me here. There is atleast 1 place to go in Hollywoodland. not a clone
