I came to Dimples thinking that surely this would be a prime place to sing karaoke given it's history and spattering of star-studded visits. Wrong.
Went on Halloween night @ 8pm. We found that after 10 or more people were in the bar, our moron of a waitress couldn't handle the load of a "crowded" bar. Also, she had no idea how to make a simple Pama Mojito (which was advertised heavily at the bar!) and that was the hardest drink we had ordered all night, since the rest of the time we just stuck to Bud Lite so we could at least get drinks within 20-30 minutes of ordering them.
Don't even get me started on the karaoke. Sound quality: poor. Microphones: malfunctioning. Karaoke DJ: creepy and not very polite or helpful. They did give me a free DVD of my performance there. My worst karaoke experience was better than my night in the "famous" Dimples in Burbank.
Back to our brain-vacant cocktail waitress, when we first sat down (obviously we were couples), we wanted to split the tabs from the beginning. Shouldn't be hard: you make 1 tab for the 1 couple who was drinking bud lite & cocktails, then you make another tab for the couple who was drinking bud lite & soda. That was much too complicated for her & she insisted that we just leave it on 1 tab & SHE would split it at the end. Okay, fine. Well when the end of our night came about (3 rounds of drinks in a 3 hour period, with the girl trash talking RIGHT BEHIND OUR TABLE) she dropped the tab off with us & let us know that she would need us to split the tab. So I finally figured out her ignorant coding system & split the tab into our separate drink orders, tallied them up. I'm sorry, I'm not going to leave a big tip for such a sorry excuse for a cocktail waitress. Especially one that doesn't appreciate polite & patient customers. I left her $1.00 and our other friend left her $2. Come to find out, that little filly got her pay in any case because she CHARGED or I'm sorry, STOLE 20% on our cards after the fact. I will not be drinking here again, & will definitely tell everyone I know who is even considering this trashy joint as a place to go to stay far far away. There are other karaoke bars. This is not your only choice. If you want good drink service and great karaoke, go elsewhere.

In the mean time, if you have also had bad service, please email these @$$holes directly. Their email address is: webmaster (at) dimplesshowcase (dot) com

I have been to thousands of other kareoke bars. This is the only one that doesnt have any paper and pen to write your songs on. The mic sucks and cuts off whn you place your hand towards the top(was told to stop a short circuit-get better equipment). Music was too low, even after requested it be turned up by myself and the bartender. The DJ was a SLEEZY host who kept hitting on my girlfriend. It was ladies night with $3.00 well drinks, but they charged me $16.00 for 2 melon ball-THERES NO LIQUOR IN IT & $7 per Dewers on the rocks. It looks like a dive bar, which I like, but they cant price their drinks light an upscale place in Burbank. My advice- dont go.

Our party of 12 left after they refused to let my father in law back in after a smoke outside because his shirt was sleeveless. Not a tank top or a muscle shirt mind you. With convincing he was allowed back in but told not to walk around by the owner. What a dick! He was allowed to spend his money there for an hour and a half but not allowed to be seen. I would like to point out there is a sign over the bar advertising a handjob for $20, but the line is drawn at sleeves. The cook told our waitress he was pissed we ordered food and took forever. The food was crap and the portions small, kind of expected though. The DJ might be a bigger letch than the owner (close call) and openly accepts bribes to get your song on faster. a karaoke bar is a good idea, this one is very poorly executed.

Not a huge fan of Dimple's. Not exactly the highest when it comes to class. The owner tends to be just checking out all the girls the entire night and wanting them to get up and sing some sleezy song. I went here for a party once and it wasn't too bad until I realized that the owner was definitely just in it for the girls which was kind of sleezy considering he's a much older man.

this is a great place to see and be seen. it has one of the best kareoke set ups that i've ever seen and if it's your first time there they give you a tape of your singing performance (cassette tape) I find it a great way to spend a friday night!

If you're looking for a somewhat sleezy, crowded karaoke bar, then Dimples may be just up your alley. My friends and I have been to Dimples twice, and both times I felt like it was very dirty and loud. It's a great place to karoake, but it's very difficult to get a singing slot, and even when you do it feels like the men are checking out all the women. Granted, the service is great on your birthday and they give you a free shirt, DVD of your karoake, and a shot. It's a bit too much drinking and noise for me, but if you're looking for the stereotypical bar/karoake atmosphere, then Dimples has it.

This place shows people what a good time is all about. Huge gamut of karaoke and the bar is fabulous. Special treatment if it's your birthday! This is a place to go for a good laugh and to let loose.

For all its fame and history, Dimples has absolutely ZERO class ... and to their credit, maybe that's not what their patrons go for, but I couldn't help but feel like it was a seedy place when I went.

If you're in a crazy fraternity or sorority, this is probably the perfect place for a party ... but if you're looking for something a little more upscale, this isn't it.

From what I hear, there are much better alternatives that offer private karaoke rooms, and isn't having a place just for youand your friends more fun anyway?

I thought this place was a total dive. We went there for a friend's birthday. They had standard karaoke, but we were disappointed in quite a few things. They had a slideshow of pictures projected on the wall, and every 10th picture or so was a porn picture. They also had an EXTREMELY lude way of celebrating my friend's birthday, and she didn't seem impressed. If you're sensitive to lude comments/suggestions, this place is not a good idea.

This place is so much fun. You get to see drunk people sing. I like the fact that it is not crowded in here and it is just a small local place.

This place is a local favorite of mine. I like the fact that it is not such a big place and you can always find a seat. I love the fact that you do not have to pay to karoake. I always go here on my birthday and they treat you like a princess. They giveyou a tape of yourself singing, they give you a free t-shirt, and also a free round of champagne on your birthday.
There is this guy there named Sal that has been working there for years and he is awesome he is nice and courteous. I would recommend this to anyone that wants to karoake.
