    To visit LA's The Baked Potato is a pilgrimage for musician and music lover.
    This is where the best of the best LA musician play and let loose. This is the place where the musician expressed their love of music and hang with other musician.
    Don't expect them to play your favorite tunes (although they will do it) and expect a long-jam full of improvisation to really go outside the musician's comfort zone.

    This place only seat, maybe 80 people and a lot of standing room, but the place is always packed.

    The food is mainly Baked Potato (duhhh) with different topping and it is tasty.

    This place have certain "Aura" where everyone from the legendary 70's LA Wrecking Crew, 80's LA Session Master (Toto, Landau, Ritenour, Holdsworth, etc), rockstar (Eddie Van Halen, etc), Jazz great (Dave Grusin, Larry Carlton, etc) to the latest star such as Joe Bonamassa have played in this place.

    The sound is loud, but that's is what you want to hear. Because such a small space, you literally sitting or standing not 3 feet from the player and it is such a joy to see your star idol just playing their heart out.

    There are so many recording made in this small club and it will say "Live at Baked Potato".

    Simply put, The Baked Potato can be put in the same level as Whiskey A Go-Go, The Rainbow, Ronnie Scott (UK) where the wall have so much story to tell if they can talk.

    We went to celebrate Blinky's (Singer/Songwriter) 75th birthday show. It was four of us ( me, my husband, my sister, and a friend) that went.

    Showed up as the band had stopped playing and the crowd was pretty much gone. They were wrapping up but the bartender and manager were very cool and let me hang until they were supposed to close even though I know they wanted to get out of there. I would highly recommend this bar just for the staff. The prices were not bad either, but again if the staff is this nice when you are just trying to finish off your evening then I would imagine they are great while busy. Check this place out. Wish I remembered their names, but again top notch.

    New jazz club opened in Venice this yr. The talent is !st class!! ( Azar Lawrence, Theo Saunders, Henry Franklin). If u like straight ahead jazz, you'll enjoy it. $15 cover charge. Limited # but good wines. There is also a nice patio outside of the main club. They don't serve food, but will allow u to bring in outside food.
    This club obviously has growing pains. Service is OK. There were reserved seats close to stage, which no one filled. Would be best to release them close to showtime for those who actually showed up.
    I think this club will only get better w/ time. They are really trying and the entertainment is GREAT!. Strongly recommend giving them a shot.
