I am very excited, next week E3 is back in LA for another year, showcasing all the latest and coolest video games! Jos is not going this year and I will be following all the action here from home 🙁
One of the things I remember most from last year was our trip to The Dresden! Our friend Jacquelyn had been there and told us this was a must see place to hang and to see the incredible Marty & Elayne!
As quoted on thier website, Marty & Elayne have been packing the house for an unbelievable 18 years at the Dresden Restaurant – Hollywood, California’s most happening lounge. While they play music of all types, they are known best for writing and performing music in Jazz and Lounge styles.
When we walked in and I looked around, it really reminded me of the Brady Bunch opening up a ski lodge! God I LOVED that place and if it wasn’t for my extreme jetlag that week, I would have been there till closing! Marty & Elayne rocked!
They mainly take on requests from everone, songs from the most obvious lounge selections to the extreme obscure! I requested “Light My Fire” by the Doors! Elaine rocked it out on the organ for like a 10 minute doing this amazing solo! THEY ROCKED! The feature drink there is something called a “Blood and Sand” They were AWESOME as well! So, enjoy some of my shots and check out the great reviews and the web sites I found!
Dresden Room Restaurant – 1760 North Vermont Avenue
Los Angeles, California 90027-4394 ph: 323.665.4294
Lizard lounge deluxe, this is a must-see masterpiece. Don’t be put off by the bland face-brick entrance for inside is all white-leather booths, curved corners, corkboard walls and cool, carpeted standing space. It featured in the film Swingers but the main attraction is Marty & Elayne, veteran jazz crooners who’ve played here for decades. Experienced Mexican bar staff, this one’s for the discerning drinker.
