This is sick and I like it! They have a great bar manned by great tenders and they also have a wicked song list to play, they never disappoint.

Right off the 3rd street promenade, you're in the heart of town. Like an island in the city, Harvelles is on a plane all it's own. The atmosphere is cool and inviting; good for a date, hanging out with friends, or just enjoying the night to the beat of infectious tunes. My favorite piece of the Harvelles magic, hands down, has to be Joseph at the door. I can't wait to go back and see him again! ""Worth it"" doesn't even come close to describing this place!

I took a first date?. We were blown away! The dancers are HOT and the band was FURIOUS. The cover is $10. And was worth every cent. I would of paid more. The drinks are strong and the prices reasonable. Don?t miss this ?Gem? Places like this are hard to find, you have to go to New York or back in time. \r\n-Al

Pros: Atmosphere and Vibe

Cons: can't think of any

Music cool, and the one dancer was hot but not loving much else. Cover $10, drinks $24 parking $3 and for what ? I waited 30 mins. for the first set and it was 15 mins. long ...that's it? Save your time/money and go else where.

I've only been here once, on Tuesday nights, and I was sold to come back after the first few minutes of walking in.

Ok guys\r\nI have to tell you, going into this place (which came highly recommended) with a lot of sceptism I was blown away by the 'Toledo' show. His voice is amazing and boy what a show it was! I never thought i could like jazz/soul/funk so much. Now I know what i'll be doing every sunday night! Grooving at the Harvelle's. \r\nYou haven't lived in L.A until you've experienced this. I say this is by far the best place I have been to in LA to listen to music!

Okay... First off... this is my FIRST review but I felt obligated to share to those as clueless as I was.\r\n\r\nI was very reluctant when I first went to this club who's name strangely resembled an ice cream chain from back home, but some friends knowing my interest in music insisted that I see the Sunday night show. I can't begin to explain what a positive experience it was. Maybe it was the fact that I was in a great mood, maybe it was awesome music and maybe, just maybe it was the dancers on the tables... but I simply can not wait to go back. From the dark and mysterious speak-easy atmosphere to the perfectly shaken martini. (the perfect room to enjoy such a beverage, by the way)\r\n\r\nThe show was beyond amazing. The Toledo Show is easily the best show in LA. Like the title of this review says... I can't get his smokey soulful voice out of my head. And it's not just Toledo either... the musicians and the dancers... wow! That's really all I can say... wow! As a musician, these guys are top notch. I know they play elsewhere on different nights and I can't wait to find out where. Did I mention the dancers?\r\n\r\nMy ONLY complaint and it's not really a complaint is that it was pretty crowded, but I think that had to do with the fact that it's a pretty small room paired with a really popular show AND the fact that it was a holiday weekend.\r\n\r\nAnyway... like I said... I can't wait to go back and see what Harvelle's has to offer on other nights.\r\nA+++++++++++++

Pros: The venue, the drinks, the talent.

Cons: Have to cab it home...

I adore Harvelle's. Cheap drinks, great live music, really diverse crowd, NO pretense and always always a fantastic time. Red leather banquets and a black & white checkered dance floor. Harvelle's is awesome!

Already feeling the jazz sink into to me, when i looked up to order there was the most stunningly beautiful bartendendress. Not only does the music and the atmosphere get you in the mood, but the service is riveting.\nCan't wait to come back to LA just to see my favorite bartender.

Harvelle's definitely has a nice balance of things going on. Every place in LA is decorating hipster chic...Harvelle's expresses themselves nicely with that motif. On top of that, good looking bartendresses and soulful blues and jazz sessions make it a different spot to hang at. Because of the music genre, I don't make it a regular place to drink at but it's a good place to go to when you're in the mood for the bluesy kind of vibe.
