Great spot to see live music and live bands. The bartenders are really friendly and they remodeled the place real nice with seating booths and stuff.

I just cannot wait! This band came all the way from Ireland to play in America! Which is awesome in itself! If you havent seen or heard of this group before...look them up...listen to them...you will become a fan for life. I promise! Go and check it out! See you there!

Although this little spot does not have enough sitting for how popular it is (I had to stand the whole time) I enjoyed the shows I've seen here. Great for meeting the opposite sex :-)

It might be because I'm so familiar with the vibe at Little Temple and I expected Temple Bar to be similar, but the flavor wasn't the same, or even remotely close. I thought there would be reggae and dancehall music, but there was latin music and latin bands, which is okay, just not want I bargained for.

The citysearch description says funk, soul, r&b, hip hop, rap.. could have been the night we went (Saturday) but it was more latin with latin bands. It drew in a crowd around 35-50 years old. People there were having fun, however it just wasn't what I expected.

This place has awesome music. No question about that! The food, on the other hand, is awful! Our jerk chicken enchilada was lukewarm and it definitely was not jerk chicken. The blackened shrimp tacos were not blackened. In fact, it looked like they had taken the rock shrimp out of a bag, run them under hot water, and threw them on a taco with some shredded lettuce. No exaggeration here! Again, go for the music, but have dinner someplace else.

Temple Bar is a classy place to go check out some great music (the Latin nights are wonderful!) and have a few drinks. A nice change from all the pubs in Santa Monica.

PROS: Great music
CONS: Limited Parking

Live Music every night of the week. Music from around the world: hip hop, funky, fusions, and other luring type music. Very mellow-non trendy atmosphere. Good food, drinks, and cool people. Located in Wilshire area of Santa Monica.

This a great place to go to relax with friend and/or dance. They have really great live music and a great environment. The crowd is diverse and chilled out. The "feel" of the place is not typical of santa monica and it is a nice change after being atEl Cholo.

This is a great place. Comfortable, casual, and cool. The service was fast and friendly, food was suprisingly good, and the atmosphere was nice. If you're looking for a place to relax with your friends over drinks and live entertainment this a place you must try.

The Temple bar is an assett!

Always fun, even on off-nights (Sunday, Monday)

Its very casual and attracts an "alternative" crowd of former Deadheads etc mixed with assorted trendies.

I like it. Fun, Casual, Good music and comfortable to hang-out in.

I read about it on citysearch, went in and found myself in a jungle. Worst dressed people, too dark to see who is there, bartenders are just down to business, and the cover on Fridays is $10, I would rather donate it to Save the Children Fund. If class matters to you, find yourself another place.

This club was awesome, until I had a confrontation with the bouncers. I will not indicate the situation specifically for its lack of appropriateness. However, aside from the sporatic power trips of the bouncers, this place was awesome and has great entertainment (like Saul Williams, Cody Chestnut, etc).

This is by far the best club on the Westside. They consistently draw a wide range of talented and danceable bands (if you get the chance, catch Wozani -- they are incredible).

The decor is very red. The setup hasn't changed all that much since it used to be St. Stephen's Green, a British pub. There's still the little room off the main area with a pool table and portraits of various music legends.

Get there early if you want to fit in a leisurely game -- once the room gets crowded it becomes increasingly more difficult to take your shots because there's not nearly enough space around the table to do it right.
