Pip's On La Brea
The food at Pips is pretty good—think racks of lamb, Creole fettuccine, and tiramisu—but you’re here for the incredible jazz performances. Since opening in 2010, this jazz club/restaurant has become a go-to casual hangout spot, a place where you’ll hear blues, R&B, or dinner showcases any night of the week. They have patio and indoor seating, and unlike other jazz clubs, Pips sticks to a strict weekly schedule. Check their website for the latest details.
