Description

LA Weekly's Description

The Ukrainian Culture Center is indeed a center of Ukrainian culture in Los Angeles, hosting folk dances, concerts and unique Ukrainian events like the zabava (a big party) and malanka (a folk holiday and feast). But the U.C.C. is also a center of activity for the entire community, presenting workshops and classes, and is also available for weddings and private parties. Additionally, the center has been the site of many legendary concerts, from the early days of the Hollywood punk scene in the late 1970s to more recent shows by alt-rock favorites like Cold Cave. In 2011, Arcade Fire chose the U.C.C. as the location for a secret show in front a few hundred lucky fans. It's easy to see why the venerable old building attracts so much attention. Located on the southeast fringes of Hollywood on the eastern end of Melrose Avenue (away from the trendier shops a couple of miles west on Melrose), the Ukrainian Cultural Center is a beautiful Art Deco ballroom with a large dance floor, high ceilings and beautifully ornate lamps. The ballroom's high walls and ceiling can make amplified rock bands sound loud, albeit with booming echo, but it's nonetheless a visually glorious setting for any type of concert. A small bar sits just outside the ballroom in the lobby. Lot parking and street parking available.

    Shockingly hip music venue.

    Donation bar. Sound sucks. Bathrooms suck.
