The basics

Considered one of the country’s most important rock ‘n’ roll landmarks, Whisky a Go Go has been a City of Angels legend for close to 60 years, from the beginnings of the go-go era to the heights of hair metal and beyond. Known for its French boudoir aesthetic and small capacity—the venue fits just 500 listeners—Whisky a Go Go has nevertheless hosted a huge array of musical legends, from Mötley Crüe and Van Halen to Cream and Oasis, in its time. The venue is still active today, and its busy events calendar includes concerts most evenings.

Whisky a Go Go features on a wide range of tour itineraries, from bike tours and West Hollywood neighborhood excursions to Sunset Strip crawls. It’s also simple to plan an independent visit to enjoy a night of live music on site.
