The Garter

★★★★☆
Hidden behind an industrial facade, this newly hip lounge strikes a wilder pose than its former divey Red Garter incarnation.

I've been dying to find somewhere to meet girls on the westside forEVER. Forever literally. Bubble Lounge started here every Wednesday for gay girls just this month and I went last week and it was jampacked with hot girls looking to meet!

I couldn't believe my eyes (droooool!) It was a cool mixed crowd of gay and straight, an awesome space, I love the retro look. The DJ was killer, everybody was dancing, and I GOT SOME!!!!! Yes, it was seriously perfect all around.

So, for me, for now, it's The Garter to meet girls on a Wednesday, this is my spot! Keep up the good work!

I had a wonderful time at this place. The atmosphere was cool as well as the people. I like the bartenders as they don't give you any attitudes and the drinks aren"t that expensive and there's no cover charge. The bouncers were cool to me and my friends and they greet you really well and they are so professional. The bouncers at the clubs in Hollywood are egotistic and rude. This is what makes a good and safe place to chill and have drinks. Any ladies out there that has been to this bar, do any of you have any info or know the really tall cute bouncer?

I was out with my friends for a girls night out, and decided to go home before the rest of my friends. I walked outside and the valet guy offered to call me a cab and stood with me "until it would get there". Every time a cab would pull up he would say that it was the wrong cab, and they were on their way. 15 minutes passed, still no sign of "MY" cab. I told the guy I really had to go home, and he told me to follow him (2 cars down) and opened a car door and told me to get in. I said no and walked back to the bar, and thank god a cab was sitting there which he said was "not mine" again.. and I just jumped in. Not sure what the deal was but as a young drunk girl....alone.....freaked me out that the valet guy- working at this bar.. was going to leave to try and "take me home"? My friends and I now have banned this sketch bar, and would rather go anywhere in Venice than The Garter.

I had never been to the Garter. My girlfriends dragged me out on a Tuesday, even though I didn't want to go. I'm glad they did!

My thing is live music, and I wasn't expecting it. But, they had it for sure. The band was hot. Like a funk groove rock hip hop I don't know what! Sampling jazz, hip hop, etc... Good booty shakin'. Creative. Kinda reminded me of that stuff at the Brig, only these boys had singin' and they did interesting covers. And the DJ was sahweet. Stuff I've never heard before. Love the vibe. Full on Venice locals kinda place. I'll be going again on a chillax Tuesday for sure. God bless no cover no Hollywood wannabe b.s.

Pros: live music, ambiance, pool table, good crowd

Cons: the location is just okay

i showed up on a saturday night looking to scout the place for my upcoming birthday- the front security guy was very very pleasant and answered a few of my questions before i went in.

inside, the decor was lovely- red and sultry. there's a small fireplace area and a pool table, plus a dancefloor. the place was decently sized, but very warm. at the bar i ordered a ketel/soda (it took about 2 minutes) and it was 8 bucks. not bad. the drink was a good pour and the bartender was very nice as well.

outside, the smoking area (where i went to cool off) was packed. the whole place was fairly full, actually, and pretty loud. the crowd seemed normal, and the second security guy i met was really nice too.

all in all, i'd say this place is probably great on an offday- beautiful insides, great service. for me, the crowd was too much, but still a cool place.

I live a block away so I'm very happy this place exists. Fun dancing, usually a nice and fun local crowd. Bring a good attitude this place is not stuck up Hollywood :) yay
