This place was and is a toilet, the owner is an absolute w#nker, some scottish D*CK with an attitude. i dont recommend it, i wouldn't advise you to go here, party here, spend money here. you're not appreciated as a customer, the owner will use you, lie to you and abuse you and rip you off with watered down vodka and reep the profits. And dont take your cat for a swing, no room for that in this 'disco cupboard' do yourself a favour and go elsewhere, or better still, put a hot poker in your eyeball, it'd be a lot more fun.
its a shame, the staff are all great
oh well, it's LA, plenty of clubs, and it's called Play now, play is something fun you can do, how inappropriate, what a a**hole

We went to the Red Buddha on a Thursday nite where we threw a birthday party last week and we wanted to post this cos it was insane! The crowd were absolutely hip and the girls were so so beautiful. We go to Brad Hoss nites all over town and we saw every top promoter in there that nite. Its such a hang out and its a place where hip people go to get away from the whole Hollywood scene. Its such a family hang out as everyone knows everyone and the patio is great to hang out in. Dj Eric Bakdraft is da bomb too! He spins great tunes and I was there one nite when Splyce played. I love Brads nite there cos its the only place he does that gives us that feeling. Hoss keep it up! We are your Monday @ Josephs and Thursday @ Red Buddha regulars!

bad parking, crowded, too many wannabe's with attitude, drinks are overpriced, decor is gaudy and tasteless. So called trendy places like this usually have their 5 minutes and then just close their doors.

I threw a party here. For being a small place with nothing to brag about, they were rude to my guests and made them wait in line for an hour only not let them in. Then, at the end of the night one of the bar tenders (brown hair and a nose piercing) made a rude comment to me about my boyfriend as he was paying his over-priced tab. She then tried to start a fight, climbed on the bar and almost threw a drink at my face. She was obviously crazy, so security had to come and restrain her from me. Don't ever go here, there are a million other tite places in Hollywood.

I held my birthday here in August and it was such a great night. My guestlist grew on the night and Jay the doorman looked after them so well. They all got in and everyone loved the place. The staff were amazin and soooo friendly and helpful in booking the event. The music was making us all shake our bootys and we love the place! The prices were reasonable and the service was fast. My friend is throwing her party there again so were coming back soon!!! Thanks for making it such a wonderful night!!!

But hey- everbody that clubs in hollywood nowdays is from orange county or the midwest
or a wannabe actor/rapper/model and they have mom and dads money to pay
for overpriced parking and drinks- give us the REAL seedy, shady Hollywood back!
These trendy clubs do not last. Thank God for that.

Just had my birthday party there and it rocked! I've never been to a club in hollywood where they were so friendly and hands on in planning my party! All 50 of my friends got in no problem (p.s. the doorman was hot) and we partied till the music stopped...we even requested an extra last song, but instead i was sung a very special happy birthday. the drinks were great...we favored bottle service as there were a ton of us drinking and we had the vip section to ourselves. the waitress' were great, the bartenders were very helpful as well and the barback....hot! the outdoor patio was where everyone seemed to migrate and catch their breath.... needless to say it was one of the best birthdays i've ever had and my friends and i will definitly be back for more....

Goldfingers had wonderful bartenders, good music, friendly doormen and no drama. That all changed when it became Red Buddha. It's pretty inside, but not worth the attitude and steep bar prices. It's become your typical Hollywood club--doormen who play pick-and-choose and make people wait for no real reason. I'm an attractive girl who can get into any club I want, but I don't want to go to a club that treats people this way. It's become quite pretentious and the people who hang out there are people who are willing to put up with crap to be seen in a "trendy" club. If this is you or the type of people you like to hang with, Red Buddha will not let you down. I like to hang out w/ a diverse mix of people, not just those deemed "cool and beautiful" by some doorman. Typical Hollywood club--nothing special here.

The bartenders are THE WORST, the drinks are expensive ($18 bucks a pop), and it is so crowded there are people jabbing into your back at all times. GO ANYWHERE ELSE.

Great music , great place for going out at the weekends with my group. People are real and we get no hassle . We are all pretty well known faces and we never get any bother. We chill in the patio, waitresses are great, we love it. Great place to socialise, not to big not to small. Were there every Saturday!!

I went w/ some girlfriends on Sat. around 10 PM and had fun. There was already a good, mixed turnout. The space is REALLY small making it more of a quaint bar with pumping DJ music than a club, so don't expect an ample sized dance floor. Parking isn't great: street parking is limited to none and the closest lot charges $15. The other drawback was varying drink prices. The same round of drinks I bought at the bar cost $5 more when ordered from a waitress in the back patio. The best thing is that the owner really cares about his patrons. Email him from the Red Buddha site with any questions and he'll go out of his way to answer or help you. I'm sure to go back to Red Buddha possibly even to throw a private party of my own.

Sorry people. GOLDFINGERS has closed after many years of greasy, slimy fun.
It's the RED BUDDHA LOUNGE or some such thing now, which would be a different review... wouldn't it?

Pros: Atmosphere, Ladies, Patio

This has got to be one of the hottest bars/lounges/clubs in Hollywood! It has lots of celebrities with very little attitude and no papparazzi. It is very upscale Hollywood with a "real" vibe despite all the gorgeous people. It has a very "Circle Bar meets Spider Club" feel without all the pretense.

I just wanted to write a review to thank everyone for what a great night we had for my friends going away party last saturday. The place was so cool and wasnt pretentious even if there were so many hotties there anyways. She had a blast. We sat in the patio most of the night and then we danced for the rest. I reccomend this bar to have your party!

What a great spot! The patio is soooo cool.. we just chilled out there all night! What great people , we could actually meet some really cool people there. Some really unpretentious people who wanted to have a laugh. We love this place. The music on Saturday was great. Me and the girls danced all night. I love this new place, we had a birthday here and there were 20 of us and we wouldve been lost in a big club, but this was perfect. We love it!

As if there weren't enough trendy bars/cubs in this town (just a round the fricking corner too!) they had to add one more. Okay, that's fine, this is Hollywood. Where they flubbed was by replacing the much loved Goldfinger's. Yeah, it needed a little bit of work but this never stopped its regulars from coming and never turned off their new (and soon-to-be regular) customers.

It's a shame they had to redo this fab bar. I can only hope and pray they go out of business and realize this spot's sole purpose is to be a dive.

On a good note" Their bartender, Wendy, who's still there from Goldfinger's is and has always been extremely friendly.

I went there the night Hillary Duff was there and it was packed , I waited a while outside but it was only like half an hour. The decor is beautiful and the patio is like something out of Los feliz! Its friendly people migle and its a cool contrast to whats going on inside. The door men are friendly and the girls behind the bar were helpful too. Too many girls though that night. The owner was cool too. relief for hollywood!
