This legendary bikini bar may not be as seedy as it was in the '80s or even before the '04 city ordinance that made the ladies cover up and wear bikinis during their dances, but Jumbo's will always be a wild time, thanks to titillating entertainment, great music and strong drinks. The family-owned business first opened in its mini-mall location back in 1970, and though it was once known for its less than alluring performers (typified by Courtney Love's druggy dance period), these days it's a bubbling babe-fest, with burlesque-style vignettes and loads of lovely rock 'n' roll-ish lasses and tatted tarts grinding to everything the Stones to Black Sabbath to David Bowie, all showing off athletic pole work and dramatic costumes and themes. For many, the performances onstage have become secondary to the bar's colorful atmosphere itself, but whether you come here to guzzle or ogle, Jumbo's guarantees big fun.
"People think that if you work with high end cocktails you spend all your time drinking in upscale bars," says Eric Alperin, the bartender behind The Varnish. "But that's not necessarily the case." An... More »

EDC + BET = BIG star power in L.A. last week. And though we missed both Electric Daisy Carnival and a bevy of BET Awardsbashes, we still got our share of big names and glamorous babes to gab about. Diddy was at Les Deux (and Playboy Mansion's... More »
Another year has passed, and you're trying to figure out a place that isn't Edendale (i.e., the Chuck E. Cheese of Silver Lake) to invite all your Facebook friends to buy you a birthday drink. Have you thought of Jumbo's Clown Room? Once saddled with a reputation (well-deserved) as one of the sleaziest stripper spots in town, these days, as far as strip clubs on a relatively gentrification-resistant stretch of Hollywood Boulevard go, Jumbo's is actually rather intimate and kind of quaint....

Many women don’t enjoy strip clubs. This can be an issue for guys who enjoy seeing their girlfriend face-to-chest with another woman’s boobs. In this perverted dilemma, the answer is Jumbo’s Clown Room, an intimate venue that for more than four decades has allowed its female employees to call themselves “dancers” without patrons rolling our eyes behind their backs. These talented and seductive -- but non-nude -- dancers attack the on-stage pole with... More »
It would do this establishment a disservice to refer to it as a strip club, though most plebeians would categorize it as such. It first piqued our interest when we learned that auteur David Lynch would write his scripts in the back corner, and a viewing of any of his films might inspire even the greenest of cineastes to experience the environment he drew inspiration from. The drinks are strong and moderate on the pocketbook, and the dancers choose which song they cavort to, giving us a rare glimpse into her musical tastes.
I'm not saying I frequent strip-clubs often, but I have been to Jumbo's two times in the past week. The room is quite small, but intimate, and the girls are really cute: tattoos, interesting miss-matched outfits. They don't get nude but I kind of like that. They're all really good on the pole and seem like (even on a somewhat quiet Sunday night) they genuinely enjoy the art of exotic dancing. Valet is $5, no cover, but there is a two drink minimum. The drinks are fairly cheap though, even for Hollywood standards. The valet guy even fixed my headlight for me! (He smacked it Fonzie-style, but it worked!) Highly recommended! I think this may be my birthday destination...
The female orgasm can be an elusive little bastard. Sometimes it comes easily, sometimes it takes work. And for some women, it takes education. Fortunately enough for women at the Universit...
