Pros: strong drinks, super nice staff, fun

This place is very fun on 80's night. Was here with a friend for her birthday and danced the night away to music from our past. The band was amazing and it was such a good time. It was loud of course but if your not in for the dancing you can go into the lounge bar area and chit chat. well more like loud chat with friends.

Pros: atmosphere, games, food and drinks

.

I love places that can cater to different groups of people. This place does it all. There's a little arcade/pool table area, a bar area with sports games showing on their plasmas, a mini lounge area, a smoking patio, and a decent sized dance floor. I'm usually hanging around the dance floor, lounge or bar. The crowds a bit on the younger side though, like those just over 21. However, they dont really bother you. They just look like newbs. The drinks are reasonably priced too!

My first time going was to watch Fast Times band and I had a blast! Yes, the crowd is a bit on the young side but it was still fun. I'm still a kid at heart because I played a few rounds of Shuffle Board and Basketball. Lol... The drinks come in glasses WAY to small but they are still tasty and if you tip the bartender then you will get a good drink. All in all, I would recommend this place for the band... don't know what it's like either way - But why would you eat at a club anyway... go to Denny's after your done dancing!!

Pros: Fun, interesting, good air conditioning

Cons: Drinks are too small

Aside from the schitzophrenic decor (seriously? its odd) and the fact that the stand up show I'd come for was being drowned out by the terrible band jamming in the adjacent room...the real kicker for me was the half dressed waitress who seemed kind of coked out and literally couldn't keep her hands off my boyfriend! Her bra was more on display than her shirt was (and not just the straps, the whole magilla), and she was pushing her cleavage in my boyfriend's face, rubbing his back and his neck, always with a hand on him every time she came to the table, and barely made eye contact with the women at the table. Too bad for her the girls were in charge of the tip, but honestly I will never go back there.

Cons: atmosphere, service, food

I went this on saturaday...great crowd...very mixed. The DJ played good music! Drinks are priced well...reminded me of my freshman year in college! A great place to go with friends to get away for the hollywood scene!

Been here a few times as it is close to my crib as sometimes proximity is worth more than substance. I had been to the Busby's in Santa Monica, had a good time and decided to give this one a try. Don't like that they charge a cover and if you can't walk there, parking is pretty much non-existent (except for valet). Never eaten here and probably never would. Once you are in, drinks seem to be priced ok, and it is usually pretty crowded on a Friday or Saturday night. Plenty of flat screens to watch sports at, usually some good looking patrons and definitely a larger spot than it looks like from the outside. There is a huge dance floor and stage in one room, a lounge area, the main bar and some smaller rooms to play sports bar type games in and smoke. Not bad, would recommend for a place you don't have to get all dressed up for and is close to the Miracle Mile.

Pros: Proximity to the Miracle Mile, plenty of flat screens, large rooms

Cons: Cover charge, parking

.

Great club and bar for ages 21-35. Good music and very cool atmosphere. The drinks are a little overpriced and cover charge is 10 dollars...not too bad.

I wish I could say something positive about Busby's but I just can't. Not that one would choose to actually eat at a sports bar, but the food has to be at least somewhat edible. I ordered a sloppy $11 (!) margarita (the salt was crumbling off the rim and the ice was "watery" - probably sat at the bar for awhile until the waitress actually served it) and the $10 "Busby Burger." The meat had the weirdest texture, reminding me of something served in an elementary school cafeteria (flashbacks to first grade). The fries were cold, and the waitress didn't even have a match to light the candles on the table. Our friend had a $15 salad with about five pices of lettuce on it. Total rip off. And where were the happy hour specials? It was 7pm! Again, I know I was in a sports bar, but if the owners took the time to stencil paisleys on the wall, and mount at least 10 flat screen TVs all over the lounge, couldn't they take the time to serve decent food and drinks? There goes $55 that I'll never see again.

Pros: Lots of flat screen TVs

The service was on point, the drinks were perfect, the atmosphere was friendly, and the management was top of the line. I never knew something as simple as a "taco" could be so amazing! I would return anytime I had the chance.

If you enjoy horrible drinks, Motley Crue at a club and an age range between 21-23 then this is the place for you!
