The Sunset Strip

Anything goes after dark on Sunset. Sunset Boulevard has been a haven for the music scene since the 1960s. Jim Morrison and the Doors, Van Halen, and Motley Crue played at The Rainbow. The Viper Room is owned by Johnny Depp. The Whiskey A Go Go hosted acts like Led Zeppelin and Janis Joplin. The Roxy made its mark with bands like Guns and Roses and Poison.Sunset Boulevard has so much history to it, the entire block should be preserved for generations to come.

People-watching has always been great here. Stop into the Rainbow for a bite to eat (the lasagna is amazingly awesome), or rub elbows with rock stars from the past or future rockers at The Key Club.

All the clubs are open 7 days a week. Some charge a cover, some don't. Weeknights are the best time to go to a club, because the weekends are usually crowded with tourists. Some great music has been discovered on this street, and more great bands will be born here.

Most of the clubs on the block have websites - just Google them. You'll be able to look at event calendars and cover charges, not to mention the history. See my review on the Rainbow.
