Nice music and place

Akbar on Sunset is the perfect Comfortable, Intimate Little Bar for the Holidays. If you are looking for a place to hang-out with a friend, Akbar is perfect. We were there on a Sunday afternoon and enjoyed the live entertainment: even Green on her Electric Ukulele.

Been there before. It's a nice place to go there on the weekend. Drinks not cheap but not expensive. Good music. Nice people. Sexually mixed crowd. I recommend people hang out there.
