May 16th, 2007: Amagi Night Club

WEDNESDAY, May 16th, 2007

Amagi Night Club
6144 W. Sunset Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90028 (Hollywood)

East of Vine st. and north of Santa Monica blvd. lies a wild and untamed world of shock and awe — a would-be "circus" of civilization — that would be more appropriately named Hollyweird. It’s a land where trannys asking for change is commonplace and the novelty of Western-themed strip malls honoring the old days of Tinsletown has not worn off. Yet this strange land is no stranger to the World Dive Bar Tour and is home to one of our favorite stops, Amagi Night Club.

Nevermind the health department "C" in the window. All the mixed drinks are stiff enough prevent e-coli or dysentery from making the next day of your life a living hell. You’ll need them, anyhow, in order to enhance your karaoke performance. On our last visit, Peter Dinklage rolled in with his entourage and impressed us all with his rendition of "Eye of the Tiger."

However, no celebrity could match the gravitas and emotional impact of the famous Karaoke Ninja of Sunset. Arriving every Wednesday night, promptly at 10:43PM, just in time to have a drink and chew the fat with the regulars before taking the stage and stealing our hearts with a performance of November Rain that would make Axl himself bow in respect. It’s not to miss.

As usual, the casual debauchery starts around 9PM an gets really interesting by 10:00. Come for one drink, or stay for one too many. Bring anyone and everyone, and join us for a great time in the middle of the week. If you arrive early or late, look for the people having a damn good time (it’ll be us), or start having a damn good time on your own (we’ll find you).

Carpe Drink’em,

Alex, Damien, & Travis, WDBT Co-Czars

"One of us! One of us!"

The World Dive Bar Tour is your bi- weekly, Wednesday night stop for adventure, drinks, and professional networking in Los Angeles. 2012 will offer an eclectic lineup of seedy and swanky joints to soften your liver and relax your inhibitions, and an in-your-face assortment of auxiliary events, just in case 25 different bars in one year wasn't enough.
