Not API friendly Not Deaf Hoh friendly Not Disability friendly. Not Short friendly. Very superficial crowds. And snobby attitudes in a group.

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!!
