I'm not certain what the worst part of this evening was, so I'll just list everything that went wrong.

1. I order an expensive bottle of champagne and 3 double patrons; we wait and wait and wait. Finally, drinks arrive. Patrons are blatantly watered; I make a comment to the waitress who gets angry; sends bartender over to yell at us. Finally brings us another shot of patron to appease us. I am charged for the "free" patron that was meant to compensate for the watered ones.

2. Bouncer sitting right by my table hits on the girls I am with relentlessly the whole night.

3. At one point, one of my guests puts down a champagne glass and it breaks on the table. What one would think: cheap glasses! Instead, security comes over to evict us for having an intoxicated guest. After paying the bouncer $20 to go away, situation is resolved. EXTORTION OF HIGH PAYING GUESTS!

4. At the end of the evening, while there are still people in the club, my friend is in the restroom. I wait outside the restroom, where I am accosted by a bouncer who insists I leave immediately. I inform him that I do not want to lose track of my guest in the restroom. Without words, he forcibly, physically throws me out....this all after over a $500 check.

I'm a spender and a club regular....All I can say is that this is hands down the worst treatment I have ever had. If you have a special occasion or event, or just want an evening that does not involve being embarrassed and abused, I would recommend you stay away from this horribly mismanaged atrocity.

Pros: None

Cons: Abusive staff

.

The venue is big. Many sitting areas. Many ups and downs so not drunkard friendly. The last time I was there, the women's restroom ran out of toilet paper in EVERY stall and the attendant did not replace. The smoking area is a little bit small, but manageable. There is a great cheap parking area right behind the club but is a little hard to see/get to.

Pros: large location, easily accessable and cheap parking

Cons: too many stairs

If you don't get here before 10pm on a popular, you'll spend some time waiting outside. I've greased the bouncers a few times just to bypass the wait - plus cover and it gets expensive. The club is quite nice inside - spacious, good decor, huge outside area and the VIP area. Go-go dancers are really, really, really hot. And they know how to work the crowd. Drinks are a rip-off, but that's no surprise.

Garden of Eden is my favorite place to go dancing! My friends and I go there regularly for a girls night out! I will agree it is tough to get into if you're a guy, especially if you're a guy and not on the list. If you're looking for a good time, good ambienence and awesome music to dance to then hit up Garden of Eden on a Fri/Sat night!!

The balcony area is a bit small, but there's a quaint lounge above the bar. The music is good. The go-go girls really know how to work it!

July 10 me and 3 of my girlfriends went there to celebrate a birthday. First off, there was no line and the place wasn't even packed. They were picking out girls wearing close to nothing out of the crowd. When me and my girls went up and said how do weget in, the guy told me we were not going to get in. I said why not and he said you HAD to be on the guestlist. I pointed out the girls he just let in, and he said they were on the guestlist. I said how do you get on the guest list, he said you have to know the owner and walked away. I bet you there isn't even anything written on his little clipboard. Either you hand him a bill or give him some play. Half those girls' bodies were bomb but faces were wrong.

I have been here twice and both times I had a good time. Drinks are Ok. service is good. Music is good. Dancers are good, what I liked the best about it was the decor. Vip room upstairs was crowded but real cool people. For those who don't get in, you must not be at the right place.

Pros: decor, decor, decor

Garden of Eden is pretentious, snobby, and over-rated. The service is beyond bad, it is rude without reason. This club is the insecure pretty girl who puts on lots of makeup to camaflouge how dumb and empty she is. I waited behind a distant rope outside an empty club for 30 minutes in order to make this lame spot look "desirable" to passers-by. The high maintenance place doesn't even reward you for the wait once inside...the martinis were les than average and the service was awful.

Friday nights are way cool. The decor is nice, the music is good, and we didn't have any problem getting in. The bouncer was actually really nice. The drinks are pricey, but anywhere you go in Los Angeles is going to be like that. I'd definitely go back.

If you do not know someone or if you are not on the vip list, forget about getting into the Doors of this place (fri/sat) nights. The bouncers are mean and the crowd is stuck up !

My friends and I tried going here for a girl friend's b-day. It was hard to get in unless you knew someone or "look" the part.

I expected to see a bevy of beauties, but saw short & buff older men trying to hit on fake breasts and not so pretty faces.

The music was the best thing about the club. Go there to dance, not to hook up with some eye candy.

The Garden of Eden is the bomb... If you haven't been there then you haven't lived life.
Service is just amazing, fully stocked Bars (5 to be exact), Has an outdoor patio with heaters and tables, People are friendly and the atmosphere forget about it? It has everything you need for an awesome night out with friends.
Why not prepare for the weekend right with Hump day (Wednesday) and enjoy a night of Awesome Jazz at the Garden of Eden. Each week the live jazz music just keeps getting better and better - triple "A" players each week. I would say it's the best place to go out on a date without putting a dent in your wallet. $20 cover + $10 a plate for Succulent food. Dont forget to save room for their scrumptious Deserts.

I can speak for Wednesday nights which have CHANGED! It's an early night of FUN with LIVE JAZZ hosted by The Wave radio station! Sometimes packed, it' always a great atmosphere for 30+ (FINALLY). There IS a guestlist or $20 cover..but worth it for the live band alone (I would hesitate paying $20 for just a mere DJ). Come early. Doors open at 6 and music starts at 7. Two sets with a break in between and it's all over, lights on by 11pm everyone heading home to get to bed at a decent hour for work the next day! It's so good you want the band to play all night. Drinks can be pricey. Bathrooms are too dark to see anything but the toilet. A patio with comfy couches. powerful heatlamps and cool fireplace draped with candles. There IS DINNER served every Wednesday night, everything is AWESOME and reasonable!

Pros: Good Food/Drinks, LIVE Jazz-Upbeat, Early Naughty Night

Cons: Insane Traffic Nearby, Dark Bathrooms, Sometimes a wait

.

This club is very dificult to get into and when you do get in there really is not that much to see or do. The drinks are good and the people are friendly but good luck getting in the place. Forget trying to come early and just make sure you know someone or make sure to bring money to slip to the door man to get in (at least $40.00).

Man this place is not even all that. Just say if you have $$ it will get your a$$ in. Guest list or not $$ talks they don't even care, they start yellin at you like you owe them something. The place was designed ok, music was aight, i think they play better mixes on Power 106. Expect stuck up people and people who are afraid to go all wild cuz they care more about messin up their looks.

Friday nights are pretty whack. Being on the guestlist didn't matter. Money talks! I had a group of 13 and we had to "c-note" that rude guestlist jerk in order to get in and still have to pay $20 to get in! He didn't care that it was my Bday that night. It was a bad start for my Bday. Just be prepared to have lots of $ if you & your friends aren't all females. Drinks are pricey too. Thursday's better. Bartender's cool.

This place flat out sucks. I've actually made it in 2 times although I've gone with a party of male-female ratio that should get you into anywhere over 5 times. Here's the deal - you want in, you pay the bouncer, not the ticket sales person. If you go with a few gals, make sure the bouncer doesn't let them in and not you, because he sure will try. The music? Sucks. The drinks? Expensive. The crowd? Stuck up. Fun? No. Go elsewhere and have a truly exciting evening.

This club was the weakest I have ever been to. I have to admit the drinks were pretty good, but the crowd sucks. The music was weak, and not at all worth 20 bucks a head. There was a big line, and it was supposedly a "private party", however I walked up with three girls I found waiting, and we walked right in. I was happy to get in, but wanted to tell people it is not worth the line.

OVER-RATED, If you want to get totally ripped off - then head to Garden of Eden. First of all, they charge $20 per person to get in - a rip off pretty much anywhere on most nights, but especially here because once you get inside the drinks are a rip off as well. Not to mention the fact that the bouncers are not all that nice. I have been here a few times and each time I am less and less impressed. Last time they charged my credit card twice so I have had to figure that out with them and my bank. And you are not allowed to sit down anywhere unless your really willing to unload a mint of money. For those of you who have too much money to spend... you might enjoy it. For the rest - head somewhere else.

i've been to every flossy club in LA and i will never understand what the big draw is for the garden of eden. it's a pretty club, but other than that, it doesn't have much going for it. the dj's are never outstanding, the crowd is average, drinks overpriced -- especially since the wait can be ridiculous, even for the hottest ladies.

Well where can I start, coming from London, U.K and being in the music industry ("Ministry of Sound") I can safely say that "Garden of Eden" is a great place to dance, drink, meet and flaunt. Guest list is recommended to avoid standing around outside to get in!. Open plan, large patio outside with major seating and decor.... a godsend!. With a V.I.P bar upstairs and knowing the club is owned by Mr Hugh Heffner, get dressed up for a great time, check it out on Thursday's......Girls.girls,girls !!

I had some friends from Atlanta in town, and someone suggested we go here. I was so embarassed. Not only was the music awful out-of-date pop, but the guys and girls there were really cheesy. To add insult to injury, the bartender either didn't speak very good english, or chose to ignore us, because he made our order of drinks wrong THREE times. We asked for two Red Bull/Vodka and one amstel light -- we got 1. two bud lights and a vodka tonic, then 2. a shot of tequila and two vodka tonics. Pay $20 to get in here? NO WAY! Go to Club 66 instead. Really fun.

This club is alway off the hook on Thursdays and Friday's! The drinks are strong- bouncers are awesome on choosing a good crowd to be inside. The DJ on Thursdays really knows how to get everyone into the music.

I can't believe they actually allow a bunch of losers out front to decide who gets to go in. You can pay $20 to be picked, but then you'll need to shout out another $20 to get into the club. Once you're in, it really isn't all that great, the drinks are at least $3 above anywhere else. If you're looking for a place to stand in line forever and pay ultra high prices for drinks, this is the place for you.
