At the border of West Hollywood and Beverly Hills here a literal Who's Who of Folk, Rock and their blending into Folk Rock jammed through the night. Joplin, The Kingston Trio, Peter Paul and Mary and many other emerging artistic musical icons found their sounds and styles as they attempted to find and create their identity and define their genre....

Had a great seat at the bar after flying 2000 miles to experience this iconic place. Was awesome minus the 20-30 obnoxious and loud drunks who disrespected both the venue and the artist, Annie Bosko, that night. Please don't go there if you want to act like that. It is a MUSIC VENUE that happens to have a bar, NOT... More

I attended the Friday night show of Blackberry Smoke at the Troubadour and it was one of the best concerts I have ever been to. The venue is intimate and up close with the artists. The wait staff were friendly and fast, the drinks were wet and the whole place was rocking. Since the Troubadour is in LA, you never... More

Great venue with a bit of an edge. I've seen Jay Brannan twice there. Drinks are what you would expect in Hollywood. Reasonable and safe parking in lot directly across the street.

Booked in advance to see Dave Stewart and Friends in September 2013, whilst on holiday from the UK. Brilliant venue, small enough to be called intimate. We were touching distance from the band and the sound was excellent. A great band, with Orianthi on lead guitar, but really all the musicians were outstanding. A mixture of new songs and Eurythmics... More

There are many historic, amazing music venues in Hollywood, but the Troubadour is one of my favorites. You walk in and can feel the history. It's small, and even if you are at the back of the room you still aren't more than 30 feet away. There's a nice upstairs area as well. Because the room is fairly small, they... More

The Troubadour still feels like your on the cutting edge of music when you see a show there. They are booking bands that are becoming the next big things at the moment. I had never been there before the Seasick Steve show and it was phenomenal evening. I got to meet the performer and shake his hand before the show,... More

Coming over from the UK to see a Aussie band we didn't know what we were getting. But we got a proper music venue just like we get at home. Friendly helpful staff. Great atmosphere in the venue and the band were great. Really lively and totally worth the visit. Yay!

I have a list of about 20 live music clubs I'd like to visit. One of them is now marked off the list, The Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA (LA). This is one of those clubs that has seen so many bands and been around so long that it warrants going there just because of the place itself. It doesn't... More

In our modern world of digital music and video on demand - it's comforting to know that one of the great venues that introduced most of the acknowledge masters of rock, pop, jazz and country have performed in the intimate confines of Doug Weston's Troubador. The calendar of artists is eclectic and priced accordingly. Ticket prices can be from $15... More

Neighborhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
