LA Weekly's Description

Perched on the southern edge of Santa Monica, Trip is indeed a trip. From the outside, it looks like an everyday neighborhood bar, but the club is actually one of the Westside's leading hot spots, presenting an impressive variety of rock, world, acoustic, indie pop and other live-music and comedy events. Not only that, Trip is ground zero for sexy entertainment, with weekly strip-pole dance revues and in-house burlesque nights. The full bar has an extensive beer, wine and cocktail list. The atmosphere is inviting, with warm red walls decked out with Christmas lights, ivy, flags and colorfully psychedelic artwork. Patrons can sit at the bar or in the club's more intimate red booths. Since Trip opens daily at 11 a.m., folks can play pool and while away the time in the afternoon before musicians and comedians climb onto the club's low, small stage at night. Ages 21 & over. Street parking.

    Great place to get some cocktails and see bands play.

    It's a cool little bar spot with a neat stage for bands to play on. The place was a graveyard at 8:30pm on Thursday, but surprisingly turned into a hip bustling center of activity at 11PM later on. Go figure. If there's good music playing, it's a cool place.

    Much like the neighborhood bars in the Windy City, the frou-frou drinks are best left unordered. Instead, settle onto a stool and commune with fellow drinkers over a pint.

    Awesome time. California locals definitely know how to party and welcome new people into town. Love this place.
