Live Music in LA

Sofar Sounds

This is not the first time we have mentioned Sofar Sounds. However, for those who are unaware, Sofar Sounds are intimate concert series featuring up-and-coming artists. They occur regularly throughout the week. Along with featuring incredibly talented, soon-to-be known musicians, what makes Sofar so unique is that the location is unknown until the day of. Sofar Sounds makes for a perfect date night. It is also a great way to explore your city and discover new music near your luxury apartments in Los Angeles.


Our next venue is over in the valley but is well worth the drive. Jazz lovers everywhere will love Vibrato. Music icon Herb Alpert owns this New-American restaurant that also features big-name live jazz acts. Vibrato is open six nights a week and is a great spot to celebrate an anniversary.

The Mint

Up next is one of the oldest surviving live music venues on the Sunset strip, The Mint. It was established in 1937 and revolves around jazz music. Icons like Stevie Ray Vaughan performed there prior to hitting it big. Today you can catch tons of up-and-coming Jazz musicians daily. It is a bar and restaurant as well but we suggest heading over for the music.

The Satellite

There is also the Satellite over in Silverlake. For those who love indie rock music, the Satellite is known for featuring local and established indie bands weekly. The Satellite is also known for being the host of monthly dance parties. The first is Dance Yourself Clean, a big dance party where DJs spin indie rock songs all night long. This indie dance party occurs every Saturday. Doors open at 9 PM and the party ends around 2 AM. Even better, entry is free before 10 PM, $5 until 11 PM, and $8 any time after. Also at the Satellite is the monthly Candi Pop dance party. It is similar to Dance Yourself Clean but instead of indie music, they are spinning all the classic pop hits from the ’90s and early millennia.

The Rhythm Room L.A.

The live jazz continues over at the Rhythm Room LA! This hidden bar is a short drive away from your AVEN apartments in downtown LA. Great drinks in a retro setting are accompanied by fun live performances from local and national jazz bands. 

Live Music in LA

Before we wrap up, we do have three honorable mentions. First up, the iconic Roxy featuring artists big and small. There is also the Troubadour in West Hollywood and the Teragram Ballroom just around the corner from AVEN. From retro bars with nightly jazz musicians to iconic small venues, live music is all around us in LA.
