child_of_air @ : Girl Bar
Well, after not going for over two years, I decided to check it out with a friend of mine last Friday. Here are my findings:
Music: Sucked. Pick between top 40 pop, hiphop, and crappy house, and really old hip hop from the 90's. There was nothing remotely being played that I could even dance to. I think I managed to get on the dance floor for about 10 minutes tops, and that was only towards the end of the night after about five drinks.
Drinks: Expensive. 12 bucks for 2 beers- which is even more than Bar Sinister! Ouch. I suggest walking in the door already tipsy if you are planning on getting the most bang for your buck.
Ladies: Not too bad. Amoung the white girls dressed in urban wannabee outfits, I did see about ten really cute girls that I wouldn't have minded talking to. If you like Asians, this is the place to go. The one thing I can say about the crowd is that it was diverse, every ethnicity, sexuality and both butches and lipstick lesbians were present. If you have any sort of preference, than I can safely say that you will most likely find the type of girl you are looking for... That is, if you aren't looking for a gloomy doomy goth girl. Personally, I like girls that are more on the alternative side rather than preppy....but that goes without saying.
Location: Right in the heart of West Hollywood, the location wasn't bad. My only complaint was the long staircase leading up the club, and out to the smoking patio. I wouldn't be surprised if someone has broken her neck already, especially after a few drinks!
Conclusion: If you're the type of person that doesn't mind crap music, or dances to anything while drunk, give girl bar a try. I had the dumb luck of meeting the current promoter, who was very nice and promised to put my friend and I on the list for next week. We had a decent discussion about the club, and she very honestly let me know that she wants to include every type of woman as the clientele. Meaning, go there if you aren't trendy. ;)
